The Indian Solar Market Aggregation for Rooftops (I-SMART) Program is a GIZ and MNRE supported initiative helping residents, businesses, and governments experience the many benefits of rooftop solar. The I-SMART team of professionals and volunteers makes it easy to go solar by providing customers with educational resources, helping them navigate the installation process, and connecting them with qualified installers.


I-SMART invites participation from consumers interested in learning about or installing rooftop solar, and installers interested in connecting with qualified leads.


Rooftop solar can help you lower your electricity costs while reducing your impact on the environment. If you want to know whether rooftop solar is right for you and how much you could save, sign-up to participate in I-SMART. Signing up is an easy, no-commitment process.


I-SMART is helping connect installers with pre-identified consumers interested in rooftop solar. If you are a rooftop solar installer interested in participating in the I-SMART program, please contact us at info@ismartsolar.in
