Kochi | Inkel Limited has forayed into solar business development in a move to push advanced solar PV (photo-voltaic) technology for large and medium grid applications. Inkel, Kerala’s PPP model infrastructure development company, plans to expand its operations to solar streetlights, high-mast lamps and semi-high-mast lightings by exploring ways to use the green energy. 

The company, which has projected a turnover of Rs 12 crore for 2015-16, said it will also offer innovative financial offers to promote the yield of solar energy in the state. Customers, on installing solar panels, complain about the high investment and lower energy yield, apart from operation and maintenance glitches.
We have now introduced attractive financial models and free technical study to overcome impediments, Inkel MD T Balakrishnan said. Moreover, a team will conduct free training for customers and help them with extended AMC operation and maintenance for seven years and data monitoring facility to keep track of the yield, the release said. Inkel said it has also roped in Vikram Solar and Sunlife Global to form a consortium in this regard.
