The extensive network consists of State Bank of India (SBI), Small Industries Development Bank of India (SIDBI), Union Bank of India (UBI), HDFC, Bank of Baroda, Tata Capital, Greenlance Energy, Ecofy, Credit Fair, and Paytm as the primary lending partners. For instance, MSMEs willing to opt for rooftop solar PV plants or associated services from Tata Power or its authorized channel partners across India are financially supported by SIDBI with low-cost loans.

TPSSL has designed financing models to cater to diverse customer profiles, accommodating both residential clients (including individual houses and housing societies) and commercial and industrial clients (including MSMEs, mid- and large-sized corporates, hospitals, institutions, etc).
