Growatt Gets Major Share in India’s 2.2GW Rooftop Solar Capacity Addition in 2019: Report

India has installed more than 2.2 GW of rooftop solar capacity in 2019, as per the recently released report by the research and advisory services firm JMK Research & Analytics.

However, the research firm in its annual India Solar Report Card has lowered its expectation of rooftop solar installation capacity in India for the year 2020 to 2 GW amid the lockdown situation in India due to coronavirus pandemic.

Among inverter suppliers in India for the rooftop solar sector, the research firm has ranked China’s one of the leading inverter manufacturers, Growatt, on top with 18 percent of the market share.

Commenting on the development, Rucas Wang, Regional Director of Growatt said that “we’d like to thank our clients and customers for trusting Growatt. Looking ahead this year, we’ll continue to work closely with them to overcome the difficulties caused by COVID19 pandemic. In the long run, we have unwavering confidence in the potential of Indian solar market.”

In the twelve-month period ending Sep-2019, India added a record 1,853 MW rooftop solar capacity, which is  17 percent higher than the same period last year according to the report released by Bridge to India. PV inverter suppliers from China are the top players in the solar rooftop sector. Growatt, one of the TOP 3 rooftop solar inverter brands in China, has become the No.1 solar rooftop inverter supplier in India according to the report.

The Chinese inverter supplier entered the Indian market 8 years ago and since then it has maintained its strong growth momentum.

Along with its competitive and reliable products, the company claimed that it has built an extensive service network to provide efficient onsite and remote services across the country.

Moreover, the service team of the company has also been actively providing product and technical training for its clients, it added.
