Rooftop solar solutions (RTS) are fast emerging as reliable and economic source of energy for the residential segment of the market in the country.

Tata Power Solar is also India's leading integrated solar player, excelling across the solar value chain right from the manufacturing of cell/modules and solar products to executing rooftop and utility-scale solar projects.
Mr. Praveer Sinha, CEO & MD, Tata Power said, "Rooftop solar is an ideal solution for consumers who are looking for a sustainable source of clean energy that has the in-built capacity to pay for itself in the long run. RTS is also a solution developed for a new generation of consumers who expect more from their utilities that just electricity. When combined with new distribution solutions like microgrid, solar rooftop will play a big role in improving the energy access across the country, in both urban and rural parts."
