New Delhi: Tata Power, India’s largest integrated power utility has always been a frontrunner in driving initiatives towards environment conservation. In line with this, Tata Power through its wholly-owned subsidiary Coastal Gujarat Power Limited (CGPL) in association with Aga Khan Rural Support Program installed Roof Rain Water Harvesting Structures (RRWHS) at Modhva village under the ‘Sagarbandhu’ project.

The objective of installing the RRWHS in the village was to generate awareness on proper usage of natural resources by providing an independent water supply. These structures can be easily installed and operated to mitigate the unavailability of water issues. This initiative will help the women of the village to get water at their door step. Moreover, it will not only ensure continual supply of water in times of droughts, but will also prevent flooding in low-lying areas. RRWHS will help in replenishing the ground water table thus enabling dug wells and bore wells to sustain adequate water.

Speaking on this occasion, Mr. K.K Sharma, Executive Director & CEO, CGPL commented, “RRWHS will promote both water and energy conservation.We at Tata Power give utmost importance to the conservation and protection of the environment. This initiative is a significant achievement and has come a long way in helping reduce the drinking water crisis in the region. We look forward to many such initiatives for the betterment of the community.”
