Product/Service Summary

We are the pioneers of Distributed Solar Power contracting in India. We install Solar power plants at clients' rooftops at no initial cost. They pay for the power consumed at a discount to the Grid tariff. These power plants are financed by Businesses with substantial tax liabilities or Investors seeking to tap into Rooftop Solar opportunity

How are we different?

There are over 200 Solar component manufacturing and System integration firms registered with MNRE. What makes us unique is our concept of Solar Power contracting wherein the users pay only on the actual usage of electricity from our systems. The Idea is to facilitate Green Power at tariffs lesser than Conventional Power tariff.
