Chemitech Solar as the authorized channel partner of Adani Solar will be responsible for all the retail requirements across the state. They will be assigned an exclusive territory to manage orders of solar panels up to 150KW and be responsible for overall lead generation, conversion and service. The Delhi region and Uttar Pradesh have great potential due to availability of ample sunlight and customer-friendly state policy that supports abundant solar power generation.
Among the Indian Solar panel manufacturers, Adani maintains the market leadership. Adani is the only manufacturer with IEC 2016 certification in all SKUs. For consumers, installing off-grid Adani solar panels will help them mitigate power-cut challenges and assist in reducing overall electricity costs and usage in the Delhi region and Uttar Pradesh. Delhi consumers specifically will also benefit from the ‘Mukhyamantri Solar Power Scheme’, which offers residents with rooftop solar panels a subsidy on their electricity bill for a period of five years from the existing three. The state governments have been encouraging the conservation of renewable resources in all sectors to increase renewable energy supply and energy efficiency measures in their regions.
