Amplus Solar, a leading distributed solar energy provider, has solidified further its position as a market leader in India, by achieving One Gigawatt (1GW) capacity of solar assets. Serving a portfolio of A-rated commercial and industrial customers primarily, Amplus Solar offers clean energy solutions with a customer-centric approach. The company commissioned its first project of 100kW at an engineering college in Maharashtra in May 2014 and continued to grow from strength to strength, backed by delivering services of the highest industry standards with a focus on quality and safety.
A member of the PETRONAS (Petroliam Nasional Berhad) group, Amplus Solar has expanded its client portfolio across diverse sectors and geographies. With its stronghold in India, the company is now making strides in the Middle East region. In addition, the company has been foraying into new avenues such as residential Solar (HomeScape offers differentiated, aesthetically designed rooftop solar for homes), battery storage, and electric mobility as a service, known as YELO.
Commenting on the 1GW milestone, Mr Sanjeev Aggarwal, MD and CEO, Amplus Solar, said, “We are excited to have surpassed 1GW of solar capacity. We have achieved this important milestone through our collective efforts and with the support from our customers, business partners and stakeholders. Until a few years ago, achieving this scale was limited to a few utility solar companies. Today, as distributed solar companies start to achieve GW scale, it demonstrates just how vast the solar canvas is in India. Moving forward, we remain committed to contributing towards the realization of India’s clean energy targets.”
Amplus Solar was conceptualized with a vision of addressing the clean energy needs of our customers and the community at large. As the world commits to the goal of a net-zero future, Amplus Solar is well on course to grow at an even more rapid pace than before. Since its inception, Amplus Solar has been leading innovation in India’s solar sector. For reference, the company pioneered a zero-investment risk-free business model (Solar Power As A Service) for Commercial and Industrial customers, developed an in-house remote monitoring system ‘Hawk-AI’ to help manage its vast portfolio of 450 solar projects spread over 25 states in India, and has recently received design innovation awards for its residential vertical ‘HomeScape by Amplus Solar’.
