What according to you is the future of Solar Industry in India?
Yes, we are performing very good in India rooftop market. SOFARSOLAR is a fastest growing product with good qualities, lesser service complain & prompt service solutions. No compromise in quality to make cheap product, no compromise in product case material, wide display. In Indian solar market expecting big projection in coming year after last years slowdown & uncertainties due to some policy & project, PPA. Coming year expected more than 10-12GW in rooftop & Medium – large scale projects.
The Government has up-scaled the target of renewable energy capacity to 175 GW by the year 2022 which includes 100 GW from solar, 60 GW from wind, 10 GW from bio-power and 5 GW from small hydropower. The government needs to be more concentrate on the end user’s requirement & support their ability for solar market development, net-metering confusion/clarification, subsidy provision.
BIS Certification proposal has been welcomed by the solar industry & It’s likely to also attract more investment & development from Domestic and international manufactures. It will be create more employment in the market & also come with MAKE IN INDIA Concepts.
Given the tough competition how cost competitive is Indian and Global solar Inverter market?
If manufacturer compromise in quality to make cheap rate products then it’s very difficult to take a stand in market with long vision work & warranty duration. So now days it’s very difficult to get proper products in cheap rate. For good product manufacturer focusing on to control on lower marginal game, no extra expenses & how can save a extra coast and not impact on business strategy. For manufacturer in India market also need to invest higher coast in BIS certification & also invest in another product generation, also another side to compete with cheap rate brand product. “Serving good quality product on lower margin with prompt service support “tagline will give good business in tough competition.
