Aside from this, the parties also launched “The Big Solar Fest” which aims to spread awareness of the most competitive financing offering without processing fees which will serve as an additional incentive to accelerate the MSMEs’ clean energy adoption.

"MSMEs are the backbone of India's economy. They operate across industrial segments and are major consumers of electricity,” Dr. Praveer Sinha, CEO & MD of Tata Power.

“Our strategic collaboration with SIDBI will facilitate the ‘ease of opting’ renewable energy in the MSME sector and power its quest to become more efficient and globally competitive,” Sinha added.
