New Delhi: Real estate advising platform Housing.com has made a foray into the solar power business by launching “Solar Rooftop” – a solar rooftop solution for homes under its rental and allied services platform Housing Edge.
“With the help of this innovative residential solution, homeowners can save up to 90 percent on their electricity bills. In this context, Housing.com has entered into a partnership with Loom Solar, an emerging SolarTech start-up under Government of India’s Start-up India initiative,” the company said in a statement.
The partnership will leverage and augment the strength of both the organisations for providing a one-stop solution to homeowners for their solar needs and laying the foundation for creating future-ready homes, according to the statement.
“At Housing.com, we continuously aim to create new offerings to add greater value to our customers. This tie-up with Loom Solar is another step in that direction. Rooftop solar is one of the crucial elements in creating sustainable living solutions and we are confident that demand for this will continue to rise exponentially in the near future,” said Dhruv Agarwala, group CEO, Housing.com, Makaan.com & PropTiger.com.
Indian homes and commercial establishments are increasingly opting for installing solar power plants at their rooftop as part of a larger drive towards sustainable living. The country added a record 1.3 Gigawatt of rooftop solar power capacity in the first nine months of 2021.
“Loom Solar recently crossed 50,000 homes adopting rooftop solar systems and this tie-up with Housing.com takes another footstep towards addressing the bigger mission,” said Amod Anand, Co-Founder & Director, Loom Solar.
Housing.com said even in its pre-launch phase, solar rooftop solutions have emerged as one of the most popular and fastest-growing categories under Housing Edge with 20 percent Month-on-Month growth in user inquiries.
To increase the outreach of Solar Rooftop solutions, in addition to this partnership, the firm has tied up with three more companies for providing solar rooftop solutions including Home Scape, My Sun & Solar Square.
