Countrys first solar home kit suitable for use in residences, SME establishments and other places like schools and hospitals was launched in Delhi yesterday. Trina Solar of China, the largest manufacturer of solar photovoltaic (PV) panels globally and India’s biggest supplier, launched solar home kit called Trinahome. The kit includes all the required solar rooftop components, includes modules, inverter, grid box and mounting system, and comes with a 25-year module performance warranty. It is available in capacities of 3 kilowatt (Kw), 5 Kw and 10 Kw and has a dedicated app to enable customers to monitor power generation.
Announcing the India launch of the home kit, Trina President (Global Sales) Yin Rong Fang said while Trinahome is currently being imported from China, the company aims to assemble it locally in the coming months. “Now that we have solidified our strong position in the utility segment of the market, we are moving into the household and SME (small and medium enterprises) sector with the launch of Trinahome in India,” Yin said.
Trina Solar is in the process of identifying and approving local component suppliers, with the aim of assembling it in the country in the next four to six months. “India is Trina’s second largest market in Asia-Pacific and the third largest in the world. We far have cumulatively supplied 3.5 gigawat (GW) which is nearly 15 per cent of the country’s total solar modules and panels,” Yin said.
