Rooftop solar

Rooftop solar growth in India has been very slow, even though the country has high solar insolation and supportive government incentives. India had nearly 22 GW of installed utility solar compared with only 1.2 GW rooftop installations, as at the end of July 2018.

Trina Solar is looking at training identifying local people and suppliers to make their product popular in the Indian market. The company also conducted extensive training regarding the installation of Trinahome solutions in Mumbai this year. As a result, 32 installers from 26 installer companies received authorized installer certificates. The company also has plans to assemble Trinahome in India in the coming months. Presently, they are being imported from China. Trina Solar still has plans to construct a manufacturing unit in Andhra Pradesh, India and has also earmarked 90 acres of land for the purpose. The company is waiting for an opportune time when manufacturing domestically will be more economical for Trina.
