Growing emphasis on renewable energy sources and concern about reducing greenhouse gas emissions are expected to drive the demand for solar engineering procurement and construction (EPC). The market growth has also been driven primarily by the fact that solar is the most inexpensive form of green or fossil-based energy in India, and almost all customers want to save on the operating costs of their business. However, the challenge is identifying the right partners for them for their sustainability-through-solar journey. With more than a decade of experience, Quark Solar endeavors to deliver high-quality, customized solar EPC services to its Commercial and Industrial customers within the promised timeline.
Customers risk getting poor-quality materials, lousy workmanship, and unsafe installations. Also, new solar customers need help selecting the right partner from a mix of vendors. Quark Solar began its journey in 2010 to undertake EPC of smaller-sized battery-based solar rooftops when solar was not commercially viable. As the technology evolved to grid-tie and hybrid, the company adapted and started catering to industrial customers with medium-sized and large factories. Its tremendous learning and rich experience have allowed it to cater to large MNC and corporates in recent years.
“Today Quark Solar has its presence in more than a dozen states in India with over 400 sites with the single largest rooftop capacity of 3.1 MWp”, speaks Pritam Doshi, CEO.
Delivering End-to-End Solutions in the EPC Market
Quark Solar provides turnkey EPC solutions with more than 25 MWp commissioned across 400 projects - both small and large rooftops. It has recently built a specialty to work on a more extensive industrial and commercial rooftop and turnkey open-access solar solutions. The company also undertakes EPC work for solar companies catering to MW-scale solar parks and outsources their rooftop projects. Quark Solar offers solar projects under CAPEX, OPEX, and EMI models with its investors; however, it also works with external investors when an opportunity arises. Understanding the customer’s site and any potential pitfalls help the company to design customized solar system with the highest levels of quality and safety. After a technical review of products from multiple vendors for each component, Quark Solar procures the materials and conducts a series of checks to ensure all the parameters are met or exceeded. "Impeccable services, customer references, experience, and self-improvement have helped Quark Solar to grow and stand out from the rest of the EPC companies”, speaks Pritam Doshi.
Quark Solar has always been at the forefront of technology, and its team has combined experience of 60+ years in the solar business. It has helped the company to learn from each other and grow as a team in terms of knowledge and shared experiences. The prime focus of Quark Solar is on the solar rooftop or ground-mounted plants that are collocated at the points of power consumption of its commercial and industrial customers. The differentiating factor for the company is providing end-to-end solutions starting from customer identification and PPA negotiation to closure, design, engineering, procurement, installation and commissioning, and regulatory approvals.

Quark Solar is already working with storage solution companies and early adopters to prove itself in the market. It is also planning to evolve into a solar developer catering to its customers in India and overseas. The family owns the company; however, the vision is to partner with like-minded financial and strategic investors for the Indian and overseas markets
