Varanasi, 5th July’24:: Tata Power Solar Systems Limited, a leader in sustainable energy solutions, has launched a transformative rooftop solar initiative aimed at powering every home in Uttar Pradesh (UP) with clean energy.

Starting from Varanasi, the ambitious initiative of 'Ghar Ghar Solar, Tata Power ke Sang' promises substantial financial savings and environmental benefits for residents through state-of-the-art Rooftop Solar Solutions (RTS).

Consumers in the state can avail a maximum subsidy of up to Rs.1,08,000 on rooftop solar installation. It will comprise Central Govt. subsidy of Rs 78000 for up to 3 kW and a maximum of Rs 30,000 (Rs 15,000 per kW) for up to 3kW by the State Govt., which will be over and above the Central Govt. subsidy.

Tata Power Solar’s commitment to quality and innovation ensures that this initiative will significantly boost the region’s energy availability and sustainability. With a robust channel partner network Tata Power is well-positioned to offer expedited rooftop solar connections to the residents of Varanasi and Uttar Pradesh.

Speaking at the launch ceremony in Varanasi, Dr. Praveer Sinha, CEO& MD, Tata Power, said, “Our mission at Tata Power Solar is to drive a sustainable energy future. With the launch of our rooftop solar solutions in Uttar Pradesh, we provide residents with the best available opportunity to significantly reduce their energy bills and contribute to a greener environment. Our three decades of expertise, advanced technology such as bifacial modules, easy financing, trained workforce, and robust channel partner network guarantee a hassle-free switch to solar power.”

Tata Power solar offers made-in-India, state-of-the-art solar panels ensuring superior performance and longevity on installation. Its bifacial panels also ensure that light is absorbed on both sides, guaranteeing higher efficiency in less space. The company also provides flexible financing options, making solar power accessible to everyone. The team of skilled technicians ensures a seamless installation process and maintenance support.

Additionally, Tata Power Solar guarantees a quick turnaround of just 7 days, from inquiry to installation, minimizing any downtime for customers as against other players operating in the market.

Residents in Uttar Pradesh can benefit from local subsidies provided by the state government, making solar adoption even more attractive. These subsidies, combined with significant savings on electricity bills, offer substantial financial relief to homeowners.

Switching to solar energy offers tremendous economic advantages. A typical household installing a 3 kW solar rooftop with an initial investment of around INR 1.08 lakh (subsidy of INR 1.08 lakh can be claimed) can generate 12 units of electricity daily, translating to approximately 360 units per month. With the average electricity tariff in Varanasi, this setup can save residents up to INR 27000 per year on their electricity bills.

Net metering allows residents to earn credits for any excess electricity generated by their solar systems and fed back into the grid. This not only reduces their electricity bills further but also ensures that no generated power goes to waste, enhancing the overall financial benefits of switching to solar energy.

Tata Power Solar's extensive network of channel partners throughout Uttar Pradesh ensures rapid installations and exceptional customer service, making the transition to solar energy smooth and hassle-free.

Tata Power Solar’s ambitious initiative aligns with India’s national goal to achieve 40 GW of solar rooftop installations. With over 2 GW of solar rooftops already installed nationwide, Tata Power Solar is a driving force in India’s green energy revolution, setting the stage for a more sustainable future. Through the #GharGharSolarTataPowerkeSang initiative, the company is expanding across 23 states, reaching 300 cities, including 50+ industrial and commercial sectors.

With over 34 years of expertise, Tata Power Solar has been at the forefront of the sustainable energy movement. The company offers a maximum range of benefits to its rooftop consumers, including a 25-year warranty on modules, trusted quality assurance, lifetime service and after-sales support across India, easy financing options, and insurance for solar rooftop systems. Tata Power Solar plans to aggressively promote solar rooftop adoption through its extensive network of over 500 channel partners to 5000 channel partners and retailers to cover every nook and corner of the country. Notably, Tata Power Solar has served over 80,000 satisfied customers across India.
