Gautam Solar Cracks Notable Deal In Ghana

India’s solar module manufacturers have for long targeted the US and other developed markets for exports, considering the intense Chinese competition in other markets. In that context, an announcement by leading manufacturer Gautam Solar, of a successful export of cutting-edge solar modules to Ghana deserves notice. Despite intense competition from Chinese manufacturers dominating the African market, Gautam Solar prevailed, says the firm.

The manufacturer, with 27+ years of experience in solar, delivered its high-efficiency 545 Wp Mono PERC Solar Modules in December 2023. These modules have a number of distinct features. Their bigger M10 cells allow them to generate more power. Their cutting-edge 10BB structure with round ribbon helps deliver minimum electrical losses and improves light capture. Additionally, their half-cut design using NDC ensures the modules remain free of micro-cracks and enables good performance, even in low-light. Glass to Backsheet Bifacial technology enhances the power generation by providing additional power from the rear side. Clearly making a compelling case for the Ghanian customer.

For Gautam Solar, the achievement underscores its ability to compete globally with customers who demand top class quality and matching prices. With 27+ years of solar industry experience. It has 4 factories in Haridwar, India and its corporate office in New Delhi, India. The company is in process of expanding its solar module capacity to 2 GWp this calendar year and to 5 GWp in FY2025-26.

“We’re proud to bring our premium solar modules to Ghana,” said Gautam Mohanka, CEO of Gautam Solar. “This success highlights our dedication to innovation and quality, proving that Indian companies can thrive in competitive markets, thereby amplifying the Indian government’s vision of “Make in India, Make for the world.” We’re confident that this success will help us make further inroads in Africa and other export markets.”

With the solar markets looking set for a supply glut in coming months, greater penetration in emerging markets across Africa will provide a vital opportunity for many Indian manufacturers that are ramping up capacities in the hope of greater demand domestically and beyond.
