Tata Power partners SIDBI to launch low-cost finance for MSME rooftop solar


Integrated power company Tata Power has joined hands with Small Industries Development Bank of India (SIDBI) to offer easy and affordable financing scheme for micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs) migrating to rooftop solar systems to meet their electricity needs.

The financing solution helps MSME customers switch to rooftop solar without any collateral at an interest rate of less than 10%. This will also be complemented with a quick sanction and disbursement process (within 7 days with disbursement in 4 days), Tata Power said in a media statement.

The scheme will be available to MSME customers of Tata Power for both off-grid and on-grid connections.

Speaking on this partnership, Praveer Sinha, CEO and MD, Tata Power, said, “Green Energy has gained momentum in the country in sectors like MSME. We are pleased to partner with SIDBI for an innovative financing solution for our MSMEs customers. This will support and encourage MSME customers to adopt solar energy with affordable financing solution.”

Manoj Mittal, Deputy Managing Director, SIDBI, added, “Most MSMEs fail to attract developers due to smaller size or inadequate financial worthiness. There is a need to innovate and pay attention to these classes of consumers to activate the next leg of growth in the rooftop solar market. I am sure this scheme will help to address the need for financing for this segment.”
