Kirloskar Solar makes presence in Kerala, sets up 200 MW capacity

Kirloskar Solar Pvt. Ltd. (KSTPL), part of Kirloskar group is planning to tap the potential in Kerala as part of strengthening its presence in the country. It has partnered with GSL Energy Solutions to achieve 200 mw of solar power in the state by 2020.

We would soon launch new products like ready to install on-grid solar kits, solar off grid inverters and power packs and an innovative solar product that will produce hot water as well as electricity,’’ Palvankar said.

Jackson Mathew, MD of GSL Energy Solutions said compared with other states Kerala is yet to realise the potential of solar power. `` The state now has only a capacity of 88.5 mw compared with 1900 mw in Tamil Nadu and 2300 mw in Karnataka,’’ he said. The company has launched a scheme to encourage domestic users to convert their invertors to solar ones.
