Preparing for a #futureready India, Tata Power, the country’s largest integrated utility is making a big push for a stronger adoption of clean energy by expanding its rooftop solar offerings to 90 cities.

The big rollout from Tata Power is also coming at a time when consumers across all major categories including commercial, industrial, residential and public sector are now adopting solar energy as a reliable and sustainable solution to meet their energy needs that also holds tremendous potential to save costs, the firm issued in a statement.

Praveer Sinha, CEO & MD, Tata Power said, “solar rooftops not only offer an economical and clean alternative to conventional energy sources but also deliver reliability. With the increased adoption of RTS by consumers, we are confident that our solar rooftop solutions will play a big role in improving energy access across the country, in both urban and rural parts.”

Since the launch of customisable rooftop solar solutions on a pan-India basis in September 2018, ringing testimonials of happy customers continue to pour in on the value of Tata Power rooftop solar solutions across all categories of power consumers.

For Abid Siddiqui, Plant Head, Bisleri International, the main factor that accentuates the importance of rooftop solar panels is that they are a clean mode of energy and require very low maintenance.

Ashish Khanna, President, Tata Power (Renewables), said, “It is our endeavour to offer consumers the option of clean and green energy, which is not only cost-effective but also helps them in energy conservation. With RTS, we aim to achieve our Company’s objective of ‘Lighting up Lives’.”

The rising popularity of RTS within the Indian power sector is also an outcome of the increasing share of renewable or green energy in the country. So far, Tata Power has installed over 375+ MW of rooftop projects, including some of the most industrialised states like Gujarat, Maharashtra and Tamil Nadu.

Tata Power Solar has also built utility-scale projects in 13 states in the country with a total capacity of around 2.76 GW. In 2017, the company executed a 2.6 megawatt (MW) solar rooftop plant at the carport of Kochi International Airport. Incidentally, this is India’s largest solar-powered carport.
