The company has marked its presence in the newly merged union territories (UTs) of Dadra & Nagar Haveli and Daman & Diu by winning approx 40 rooftop solar projects with an aggregate total capacity of 1 MW in the industrial category in Daman.

The rooftop solar division of Hartek Group develops and provides complete rooftop solutions, right from installation of solar panels and inverters to supply, design, engineering and commissioning.

As per the solar policy in the recently merged UTs, it is mandatory to install rooftop solar plants on industrial units. This provides an immense opportunity for various rooftop solar installer companies.

Thus grabbing the opportunity Hartek Solar bagged these substantial orders by riding on its expertise in the rooftop solar domain and track record of keeping up high project execution standards.

Moreover, these projects are expected to be commissioned by the end of the current financial year and are evenly spread across Daman.

Speaking on the projects win, Simarpreet Singh, Director and CEO of Hartek Solar, said “the potential of rooftop solar in the newly merged union territories is immense, particularly in the industrial category, and we are going all out to tap it. While Daman & Diu has close to 3,000 small-scale and medium-scale industries, Dadra & Nagar Haveli is home to more than 2,000 small-scale units, 500 medium-scale units and 28 large-scale enterprises. With favourable policy decisions like demand aggregation initiatives making considerable impact, the industry is well poised to drive the demand for rooftop solar here in coming months.”

Singh further added that “focused on reaching out to consumers, creating visibility for policies and vendor base for rooftop solar PV plants, these demand aggregation initiatives, which are being implemented in coordination with state nodal agencies, electricity distribution companies and developers, have made a big difference in making industrial consumers realise how rooftop solar can substantially reduce their electricity bills.”

With the industrial and commercial categories accounting for 70 percent of the country’s total installed rooftop capacity, we have set a target of executing 10 MW rooftop projects in the industrial domain by the end of this year, Singh commented.
