    Assessment of market size and potential for products and services in India by conducting Market research.
    Identification of major players in the Solar PV value chain and competitor analysis with U R Energy.
    Analysis of market dynamics and recommendation of pricing strategies.
    Identification of potential channel partners and carrying out due diligence services.
    Identification of joint venture for EPC and sales/marketing Team.
    Outside of the feed-in-tariff, location and technology are the two key determinants of revenues for solar PV power plants
    While solar PV power production is usually a PPA (power purchase agreement) based game with limited upsides, there are more attractive opportunities along the PV value chain, especially in the services value chains; these opportunities could have significantly higher upside potential when compared to power production.
    We are keen on solar PV power production will do well to explore both the central and state government policies.
    With the demand for off-grid solar products such as solar Lights, mobile solar solutions solar power packs on the increase, there is a large market evolving for us.
  • Future Marketing Strategy points:
     
    Power production from thin film panel based solar power plants cost slightly less per kWh than that from crystalline solar power plants, but the practical efficiencies and robustness of thin films over a 25 year project time period is not well established. As a result, it is not fully clear which of the two thin films or crystalline - is better.
    Thin films could score over crystalline specifically in areas where the average temperatures are much higher than 30°C or lower than 20°C, owing to their better efficiencies in these ranges.
    Installation of effective power plant monitoring systems could result in a 10-15% higher overall realized electricity output.
    Commit your advertising to educating the customer about the cost savings inherent in solar. We know when your local utility sends out bills to customers, We may wish to target those days with geo-targeted web-based advertising, or local TV, newspaper, and radio commercials.
  • Future Marketing Strategy points:

    Talk to our customers about the long term costs of unstable fuel supplies. Coal, oil, natural gas, and other  fossil fuels come with a diminishing supply and an increasing demand–an economic double whammy resulting in unending price hikes.
    Tap into the power of community. If We’re on site to do solar in a neighbourhood, go talk to the neighbours. Leave flyers. Ask our customer to refer you to their neighbours. Put up signs that say you were there, and that this person trusted you to put solar on their roof. We will leave no stone unturned in local marketing.
    Fill our quiver with all the right arrows. If you don’t know your customer’s primary interest in solar, ask. If we’re still not sure, or if they’re not giving you a full answer, be prepared to lead with the financial savings, but to pull out the environmental and social benefits at a moment’s prompting.
    Be able to clearly differentiate our products and services. Whether that’s our long term service plan or our brilliant track record, focus on our strengths and be able to handle questions about the areas in which you’re not so strong. 
    Potential customers are everywhere, and solar is a large purchase that requires trust. Build it by making friends where potential customers are…meaning in places you wouldn’t think of first.
