Project Overview

The Gujarat Rooftop 1 project is a 2.5 MW rooftop project that commenced full operations in April 2013. We were the first and largest distributed solar rooftop project operational in the country.

This is an innovative business model to allow large scale distribution generation in a city. We have entered into a long term purchase agreement with the distribution company and allow them to meet their RPO and provide clean energy to their existing customer.

The roof owners receive rentals income from Azure Power for the life of the contract, thus creating an income stream in addition to supporting reliable and clean energy generation and improve their asset quality. World Bank recognized the project as one of the Top 10 public-private partnerships of 2013 in the Asia Pacific region.
