How have the business and sales been for Contendre so far in 2022?
For Contendre, It has been a very adventurous journey so far. Starting back from our initiation year of 2019, the industry has seen a lot of ups and downs be it the Covid pandemic, supply chain disruption, GST slab change, policy changes, etc. Talking about the current financial year we saw a humongous policy change, the implication of a 25% basic customs duty on solar cells and a 40% duty on module imports which has had a huge impact on the entire industry making the overall market rotation a bit slower. But despite this situation, Contendre Solar on the contrary saw massive growth in Business. Contendre Solar has been fortunate enough to supply its products and services across the globe on all different scales and sectors. Be it power plants, government projects, private industries, or domestic residences, Contendre has served and has been accepted by all. With the Company’s Year on Year growth rate of more than 1000%, our customer base multiplying immensely, and our presence is felt across the country and even internationally has today made Contendre one of the fastest growing Solar PV brands in the country.
