India now boasts the worlds largest solar rooftop array following the news that solar firm Tata Solar Power has commissioned a 12 MW array for the R.S.S.B. Educational and Environmental Society in Amritsar.
According to Tata, the installation has been completed across eight sheltered venues belonging to a single premise of the R.S.S.B., in one complete construction phase.
The project was set up under the Punjab governments rooftop solar projects scheme, and once completed the array will feed solar energy into the state grid.
The multiple rooftops identified for the array cover 1.621 million square feet of various roof profiles, roof types and truss frames. Hence, the project is considered demanding from a development point of view, and Tata Power Solar CEO Ashish Khanna applauded the R.S.S.B. for having the vision to commission such an ambitious and groundbreaking project.
"With world-class safety being our ethos, the project was commissioned on schedule with highest quality standards by systematic and planned engineering and executed in a safe manner with zero incidents," said Khanna.
