In the last few years, there has been a surge in the growth of solar panel industry driven by the government’s initiatives. Besides, the shift of focus towards solar energy as a renew-able source has boosted the industry growth further. Under the Component B of PM-KUSUM scheme, the government has sanctioned project worth INR 75,000 Crores with a target for implementation of 25,00,000 Solar Water Pumping Systems across different states of India in next 4 years.
Several organizations in the solar industry have been able to grow in the last few years, becoming noticeable in the international as well as domestic market. Himalayan Solar is a company that has been operating for years with their mission of delivering green energy to every establishment and household. With the government’s boost for Solar Industry, the organization has gained good exposure not only in the Indian market but also in the international one.
The advent of Covid-19 pandemic has slowed down the rate of production and installations not only for Himalayan Solar but for entire industry. However, after getting the financial clearance from the Government for future Solar Projects, Himalayan Solar expects to pick up the pace with the help of its and equipped teams for all-round services to the customers.
There is a high competition in the Indian market within the solar industry, how-ever. Himalayan Solar is well poised. According to the Company Director, Manjeet Singh, “You need to take the time
to understand what your customers really want and adjust your products, services, and customer support accordingly. One of the most important factors in whether you’re able to meet custom-er expectations is whether you take the time to help them set accurate expectations in the first place.”
The brand has positioned itself at the very heart of the market and has come a long way to be known as A-grade Manufacturer and EPC provider. According to Mr. Singh, “We delivered not just Solar PV Panels but an entire range of solar products in last 5 years like Solar Home Lighting Systems, Solar Inverter Charger, Solar Roof top Systems, Solar Water Pumping Systems, Solar Street Lights, etc.” This has allowed the company to get a 360 degree hold on the market.
With its model of operations, Himalayan Solar has a wide range of customers like Dealers, Distributors, State/ Central Government departments and also end consumers. Thus, the company has scope to directly deal with the end-customers and receive feedback from them. Besides, the company has in-house installation team that aids the end-customers in need. The company offers timely maintenance after installation. These are contrary to any competitor in the market who often outsources installation and is seldom able to interact with the end customers.
We delivered not just 34Solar PV Panels but an entire range of solar products in last 5 years like Solar. Home Lighting Systems, Solar Inverter Charger, Solar Roof top Systems, Solar Water Pumping Systems, Solar Street Lights, etc

We are leveraging the technology by bringing in the Multibusbar panels along with the current range of Polycrystalline, Monocrystalline, Mono Perc Cells, Bifacial Panels.
