Waaree Energies, the Indian arm of global renewable major Waaree Group, is also one of the leading companies in the Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) and rooftop segment. Waaree was an EPC player in 15 MW power project at the airport, 3.3 MW at the Metro, 8.89 MW with leading steel industry, 830KW leading FMCG and 800 KW with WBSEDCL.

Talking about their future plans for the Eastern region, Nitin Kapadnis, senior VP (Franchise), Waaree Energies, said, “West Bengal is a promising market for the solar industry with notable year-on-year growth of approximately 100% and faster adoption of solar, especially in the commercial segments.

He further added,  “West Bengal, being one of the most populated states in the country, has observed a significant growth in adoption of solar energy. This also shows that consumers are cognizant of the electricity savings of approx. Around 50% that are achievable through solar electrification.”

The solar hubs or solar power centers are a part of Waaree Energies plans to open around 1,000 solar centers in the current financial year across India. The plan is to meet the growing requirement of electricity from the rural and un-electrified regions across India. The Solar experience centers along with Waaree’s business partners at the district level will provide an end-to-end service to customers from demonstration to the installation of PV panels and inverters. As business centers grow at the district and metro levels, they will open sub-business centers at the taluka and village levels.

Last year out of 205 centers opened, few in Maharashtra were opened by state ministers. Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis opened one center and Energy Minister of Maharashtra Chandrashekhar Bavankule had opened two.
