Adani Solar, the Adani Group’s solar manufacturing and EPC arm, has announced the launch of its retail distribution business for India’s eastern and north eastern states with KSL Cleantech Ltd as the official channel partner for the two regions, said a company statement.
The aim of this partnership with KSL Cleantech, is to rapidly penetrate and capitalize on India’s eastern and north eastern renewable energy markets. Adani Solar has now extended its reach to more than 1,000 towns for the distribution of solar panels in India, according to the statement.
This will be a step towards facilitating the switch to sustainable solar power solutions at an economical rate, a change that is expected to greatly benefit residential consumers and commercial establishments in the two regions.
The state governments in the eastern and north eastern regions are promoting the solar rooftop system. The installation of Adani Solar off-grid panels will help consumers mitigate the risks of power-cuts while Adani Solar on-grid panels will assist in reducing electricity costs.
With this partnership, Adani Solar is looking at an opportunity of 130 megawatts (MW) within the rooftop segment in the two regions. The target customers are predominantly in the rooftop, utility-scale, residential, commercial & industrial (C&I), and solar pump segments.
