TPS has won one of the largest DCR orders of JNNSM phase-2 batch-1. The company will supply the entire module requirement for the 20 MW (AC) project to be built by ACME Solar, a leading solar power developer in India, the company said in a release.

It said the 1,00,000 modules, constituting 60,00,000 cells, needed for the project will be manufactured at TPS' state of the art manufacturing facility in Bangalore.

Stating that ACME Solar, during the JNNSM bidding last year, won projects totalling 100 MW, TPS said of this, 20 MW, under Domestic Content Requirement (DCR) policy of MNRE, needs to be constructed using cells and modules manufactured domestically.

"We are looking forward to a strategic relationship with ACME and EDF and, in the process, contributing to the success of JNNSM by providing world-class modules at competitive prices," Rahul Budhwar, vice-president, Manufacturing and Business Development, Tata Power Solar, said.
