We set up solar installations on rooftops of companies, institutions, public places like railway stations and airports, corporate offices and commercial spaces, assuring them 30-35 per cent cheaper power as compared to what they get from the grid. This makes for a compelling proposition for companies as they do not invest in the unit and they get power at cheaper rates,” he said.
