New Delhi: Tata Power Solar Systems Limited, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Tata Power, has announced a significant expansion of its state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Bengaluru which will take its total production capacity of cells and modules to 1,100 MW. “The expansion 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),” said Tata Power Solar in an official statement on Wednesday.
“Tata Power Solar is one of the few companies globally to have a long operating history of 31 years. This is a strong proof point for the company’s ability to honour the 25 years warranty that solar modules come with. Tata Power Solar has seen an increase in demand for its products which reaffirms the faith customers put in the quality of its products. 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,” said the statement.
