Jump to the comments

Tata Power Solar, India’s largest integrated solar company, sets another landmark by commissioning an unprecedented rooftop project in India - a solar carport on the rooftop of the sprawling 70,000 sq.mtr Unity One mall, a Unity Group endeavor in Rohini. The unique rooftop carport is estimated to set off 438 Tons of carbon emission annually. Tata Power Solar won the bid in the open tender process fielded by Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) for multi-level car parking. The carport was inaugurated by Mr. Satyender Jain, Minister of Power, PWD, Health & FW, Industries and Gurudwara Elections, Govt of NCT Delhi.

The project has been envisaged under net-metering scheme enabling self -reliance in the energy consumption and production cycle. It enables the mall to receive real value of the energy produced by earning on the unused and excess solar electricity produced. It also cuts down the need to install a second meter or an expensive battery storage system as it is directly connected to the local power grid.

Speaking on this occasion, Mr. Ashish Khanna, ED and CEO, Tata Power Solar said, “We feel proud to be associated with yet another milestone solar project for India. It has been achieved by our excellent engineering skills and project management capabilities. After earning the distinction of executing world’s largest rooftop at a single location and India’s largest carport at Cochin, we feel proud to accomplish India’s first carport on a rooftop.”

Tata Power Solar has been consistently ranked number one rooftop player for four years in running (Bridge to India). It is rated tier-1 module manufacturer by BNEF (Bloomberg New Energy Fund). It has shipped 1 GW modules to over 30 countries - the first Indian company to achieve this milestone.
