Power crisis good for solar power business
With power crisis expected to get worse in the state, demand for solar power plants has gone up over the last one month across the state.
Businesses are finding it tough to meet the new surge in demand as many receive almost 100 enquiries every day for installing solar power panels. Companies that were converting 10-12 enquiries a month back are supplying to over 40-50 customers lately. Demand is expected to go up further in the coming months, leading to longer waiting periods. Firms that were installing solar panels in 15 days are also taking over a month to service orders due to staff shortage.
“We have been getting large number of enquiries recently, mainly from professionals such as doctors. Other than power crisis, for many customers it is also a matter environmental concern,” said Siju Varghese, sales engineer, IGA Tech Industrial Electronics Pvt Ltd, Kochi.
