With India’s renewable energy sector being the fourth largest in the world, the country is expected to more than double its current renewable electricity capacity and attract as much as US$80 billion in the next four years. This on-going shift towards the renewable power is further fuelled by the availability of low-cost solar and wind energy modules whereby these two technologies together represent 90 per cent of India’s capacity growth. As with a sharp decline in the cost of these technologies, especially solar, more and more investors are coming forward in the market to invest in this conventional source of energy. Committed to add value to this domain and lead a change in the country’s current energy portfolio by delivering cleaner and smarter energy, S.Thulasidoss came up about the idea of setting up his own venture and sculpted the foundation of Dosan Solar. One of the leading manufacturers of high-performance solar power products, Dosan Solar is a PV module manufacturing unit in Tamil Nadu. “At Dosan Solar, we are dedicated to create a sustained value by producing high quality solar products and technologies that efficiently and economically harness the world’s sunlight,” says S. Thulasidoss, CEO, Dosan Solar.
Established in 2013, the company provides high quality and high efficiency P V Modules at a competitive cost. These modules convert sunlight into electricity for residential, commercial, and utility-scale power generation thereby reducing the carbon foot print of the country. But as with the non-availability of inexpensive products and no awareness from end users, the firm had to combat through a series of challenges in order to sustain a strong position for itself in the market. However,the core values of integrity, relentless emphasis on quality and generation of new equipment and high efficiency polycrystalline technology assisted Dosan Solar in fighting off the hurdles and emerge as one of the leading supplier of solar products in the market. “Over time, we have changed our BOM with same quality and managed to reduce the cost. The company does not compromise on quality and uses only high quality raw materials that come with 10 years 80 per cent assurance. We are also trying to create a wave of awareness around solar energy by the demo of our products,” he asserts.
