According to Bridge to India report, Trina Solar and Canadian Solar were top selling international brands in India in 2014. Others like Jinko Solar, ReneSola and Yingli Green Energy are also selling panels in India. These international panels are of good quality and also less expensive, than the domestic ones.

However with India’s new solar target of achieving 100 GW of solar power by 2022 and the Prime Minister’s “Make in India” initiative, we hope to see more of such India panels in the market.
