With the advent of Solar, the energy sector in India is undergoing change at an unprecedented pace and the trend is shifting towards decentralisation and decarbonisation, opening new opportunities for India to balance the ‘Energy Trilemma’ (Energy Security, Energy Affordability and Environment Sustainability).Fourth Partner is at the forefront of this movement.
Founded by three partners in 2010, we have grown to become the 2nd largest company in distributed solar sector in a short span of 7 years. We believe that – the customer, the supplier, the employee, the financier or any other stakeholder is our ‘FOURTH’ PARTNER and therefore a focus of all business activities.
