September 22, 2015. By Moulin
Tata Power Solar has announced the nationwide launch of ‘Tata Solar Dynamo’ series of rooftop grid tie systems exclusively for the residential and SME rooftop market. This latest offering will enable rooftop consumers to, both, generate clean and green power as well as save on electricity bills for up to 25 long years.
Tata Power Solar, having installed 65 MW of rooftop and distributed generation projects across India, is looking to create awareness and influence the uptake of solar power in urban India. This two-way Tata Solar Dynamo system serves as a complementary source of energy, supported by a net meter, allowing users to both generate power to meet their needs and route excess power back to the grid. Users can either fully or partially off-set their captive consumption, allowing for up to 100% savings on electricity bills based on installation capacity and power usage. Additionally those feeding excess power back to the grid will receive monetary compensation, subject to state policies.
Speaking on the launch, Ashish Khanna, ED & CEO, Tata Power Solar said “India’s residential rooftop market holds tremendous potential, and state specific net metering policies provide the needed impetus for consumers to take up rooftop solar. We are excited to enter the urban residential and SME market with a specialised offering, bringing the promise of brand Tata to an evolving sector in India. Through awareness campaigns, we want to get consumers to recognize solar energy as a viable and cost effective electricity option thereby influencing solar and clean energy adoption.”
This easily installable modular structure, ranging from 1KW to 100KW, is compatible with various types of rooftop constructions and materials. Users get to enjoy a 25 year and 5 year warranty on the modules and inverter respectively, and the system’s no-battery feature offers a maintenance-free experience. Additionally, for customer convenience, the coordination with distribution companies is handled by Tata Power Solar’ appointed dealers. Through a data logger customers can remotely monitor the system output and overall performance. The Tata Solar Dynamo system comes with long lasting module mounting structures and high efficiency inverters, ensuring the solar generation is maximised at any given point in time.
As part of this launch, Tata Power Solar has initiated a solar awareness van project in Bangalore and Hyderabad to encourage people to ‘Go Green’. These solar awareness vans come fitted with a customized system to showcase and engage with consumers at city pulse points, educating them on the benefits of rooftop solar.
