Hartek Solar has announced that it has marked its presence in the recently amalgamated union territories of Dadra & Nagar Haveli and Daman & Diu by seizing 40 rooftop solar projects of capacity one-MW in the industrial category in Daman.
The company has bagged prospects presented by the solar policy of the recently merged UTs, that makes it compulsory for industrial units to install solar rooftop projects, riding on its high project implementation standards.
Uniformly spread across Daman, these projects are planned to be commissioned by the end of the existing financial year.
Mentioning on the accomplishment, Hartek Solar Director and CEO Simarpreet Singh said, “The potential of rooftop solar in the newly merged union territories is immense, particularly in the industrial category, and we are going all out to tap it. While Daman & Diu has close to 3,000 small-scale and medium-scale industries, Dadra & Nagar Haveli is home to more than 2,000 small-scale units, 500 medium-scale units and 28 large-scale enterprises. With favourable policy decisions like demand aggregation initiatives making considerable impact, the industry is well poised to drive the demand for rooftop solar here in coming months.”
So as to accelerate the adoption of rooftop solar in Dadra & Nagar Haveli and Daman & Diu, the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy had embarked on a big campaign for rooftop solar market aggregation last year.
He said that with the industrial and commercial categories accounting for 70 per cent of India’s total installed rooftop capacity, Hartek Solar has set a target of executing 10-MW rooftop projects in the industrial domain by the end of this year.
