Tata Power Solar, India’s largest integrated solar company and Tata Power's wholly-owned subsidiary has commissioned 70kW solar rooftop installation at the eminent India International Centre. Tata Power Solar joined hands with India International Centre, one of the most premier cultural institutions of the country, to promote green energy. The project entails energy efficiency of 90,000 kWhr annually, along with reducing carbon emission by 63 tonne. This installation will help India International centre to save 10lakh INR on their electricity bill annually. The Uniqueness of this installation was that the engineering team had to cast the RCC beams to fit the ballast structure to the curved roof. The plan was executed ensuring that the structure is not hampered from any end. The roof mounting in the project was planned in an unconventional way as IIC has parabolic rooftops.

Tata Power Solar ensures that each designed structure is exclusive, as per the requirements of the space. Each project of Tata Power Solar is designed keeping in mind the safety of the team and surroundings. “Being responsible organizations, the association of Tata Power Solar and India International Centre showcases their commitment towards making the country a green energy leader.” said Shri N.N Vohra, President Indian International Centre.
