Tata Power Solar, one of India’s largest solar energy company and Tata Power’s wholly-owned subsidiary, has maintained its number one position in EPC rooftop solar players for the sixth consecutive year in a row as per the recently published India Solar Rooftop report 2019 by Bridge to India.

BTI is a leading cleantech consulting and knowledge services provider. According to the report, the total installed capacity in the EPC rooftop segment is over 360 MW including the commercial, residential & industrial sectors.

Commenting on the report findings, Vinay Rustagi, Managing Director, BTI, said that rooftop solar provides a rare dose of positive news in the Indian renewable sector. It has been growing consistently when other areas have suffered with all sorts of execution and financing challenges.

“However, recent policy pullbacks don’t augur well for the market as investors and consumers need policy certainty. We expect rooftop solar to continue to grow robustly and account for a significant share of total solar capacity in the country. The industry remains highly competitive and dominated by small, regional players but Tata Power Solar has successfully retained its leadership position in the EPC business owing to strong branding and large distribution network.”

Ashish Khanna, MD & CEO, Tata Power Solar and President, Tata Power (Renewables), speaking on the ranking said, “We are delighted to have retained this leadership position for the sixth year in a row and contributed to the solarisation of the country in a big way.

This is a testimony to our capabilities and trusts the consumers have on our quality and brand. Backed by 30 years of experience we have been able to successfully deliver some prominent and diverse rooftop product offerings to cater to the ever-evolving and challenging needs of our customers. We are confident that with more initiatives on policy framework including quality aspects there will be enormous growth particularly for Tata Power Solar in the rooftop segment.”

The firm comes with a successful background of executing the World’s largest Rooftop at a single location, India’s largest carport at Cochin International Airport, the World’s largest solar-powered Cricket stadium – Cricket Club of India, floating solar plant at Nellore & many such landmark projects.
