As we steadily tread forward, we aim at expanding our reach into deeper parts of the country where we can contribute towards sustainability and make a mark by improving lives of millions more."

The company has strived to make solar power accessible to the far-flung regions of India, touching thousands of lives in every corner of the country. From farmers in Andhra Pradesh to fisherfolk in West Bengal, and from sheepherders in Kashmir to shopkeepers in Tamil Nadu, Tata Power Solar continues to energize communities. Having built strong partnerships with numerous governments, non-profits and rural banks, Tata Power Solar has empowered those mired in energy poverty, and provided many access to electricity for the first time.
