There were those who believed in solar technology as the way forward. And then there were the sceptics, to whom, India’s future in solar technology looked bleak. But, very recently, we’ve suddenly paced ahead – we’ve already become amongst the cheapest producers of solar power. India has already achieved its solar power target four years ahead of schedule. And at Mahindra, we’re only thrilled to have joined the bandwagon early on.
For us, what started as an identified business opportunity, is soon becoming a tool towards shaping a better, cleaner future for the country. Being blessed with abundant sunlight in India, getting into solar technology was a no-brainer. However, for the longest time, we as a country have been unsuccessful in cracking this technology. With newer findings, ways to cut costs and make solar more affordable, we’ve finally switched up gears towards leveraging this business in changing what the future looks like.
