Commenting on the association, Vikas Agarwal, Co-Founder & CBO, Credit Fair said, “Awareness about Solar financing is still at a nascent stage in India. By collaborating with UTL Solar, we aim to bridge that gap and broaden the scope of solar energy transition. The association will create more opportunities for both the companies to work together and decrease the carbon footprint in the country. India is expected to surpass 100 GW of solar installed capacity by the early 2024.
