One of the largest solar panel manufacturers in India has doubled its production capacity to 400 megawatts.

One of the largest solar panel manufacturers in India has doubled its production capacity to 400 megawatts.

Tata Power Solar issued a press release stating that it has increased its solar panel production capacity from 200 megawatts to 400 megawatts. The company has also increased its solar cell production capacity from 180 megawatts to 300 megawatts.

The company is perhaps looking to expand its operations and capacity with an eye on the rapidly expanding Indian solar power market. The Indian government has set aside a substantial amount of capacity to be implemented using Indian solar panels.

The company will also look to export solar panels to other countries. Tata Power Solar recently became the first Indian manufacturer to ship 1 gigawatts of panels worldwide.

Tata Power Solar is rated a tier-1 module manufacturer by BNEF. It has shipped 1 GW of modules to more than 30 countries, of which more than 60% was shipped in the last five years.

Tata Power Solar operates the largest solar power project in India that uses domestically manufactured solar panels. The 100 megawatt project is part of the Anantapur ultra mega solar power project. The project now has an installed capacity of 250 megawatts.

Tata Power Solar also holds the record of commissioning the world’s largest rooftop solar power project of 12 megawatts capacity.
