Grid-Connected Panel – The New Face of the Industry
As the Indian Government is working towards electrifying every corner of the country, the demand for electricity has raised manifolds. Solar energy has evolved as the best option to minimize the use of traditional fossil fuels. Initiatives taken by the Government to offer ‘clean-energy’ has increased the demand for ‘Grid-connected’ solar installations across the country. This significant surge from the industrial, commercial, institutional, and social sectors has given the trust and confidence in the solar rooftop EPC market.
Challenges Obstructing the Growth of the Industry
As the demand for grid-connectivity has witnessed huge growth, the ‘net-metering’ system has come into play; however, the on-ground implementation has still not gained the momentum. This is majorly due to the gaps in implementing the policies at the ground-level. Finance is still a big constraint for the players as there is not much assistance from the banks or financial institutions.
Marching towards the Horizon
By 2022, the Government aims to generate 175 GW of renewable energy out of which 100 GW is to be generated by solar power. The emergence of private players along with increased government participation has set a very positive outlook for the solar market in India. ONergy Solar is determined to cement itself as a formidable player in the years to come. It is confident that the existing business model will assist the company to create milestones as well as in becoming one of the best players in the solar industry.
