With an aim to tap the increased domestic demand, Tata Power’s renewable energy arm Tata Power Solar Systems Ltd has expanded the total production capacity of its solar photovoltaic (PV) cells and modules manufacturing facility to 1,100 MW.

The company said that the expansion of Bengaluru-based manufacturing plant is based on the significant increase in demand that the company has seen for its solar modules, as well as the expected increase in demand due to supportive policy steps announced recently by the Government of India for creating ‘Atmanirbhar Bharat’ (Self-Reliant India).

Tata Power Solar has been one of the few companies globally to have a long operating history of 31 years. The expansion comes amid the positive intent of the Government of India towards making this country a manufacturing hub and lessen its dependency on other countries as far as import of solar cells and modules are concerned, the company said.

Speaking on the expansion, Dr. Praveer Sinha, CEO & MD, Tata Power said, “we are happy to expand our production capacity to meet the increased demand for our products. Our 31 years of strong experience in providing high quality solar products with continuous involvement in new technology has helped us to maintain leadership position in both solar manufacturing and EPC services.”

The company’s Bengaluru manufacturing plant is ISO 9001:2015, ISO 45001:2018 & ISO 14001:2015 certified which has over 25 years of production experience.

Over the years, the company has also executed various large scale projects including - 150 MW Ayana at Ananthapur, 50 MW Kasargod at Kerala, 56 MW Greenko, 30 MWp Solar Power Plant in Lapanga, Odisha, 105 MWp of Floating solar at Kayamkulam.
