Su-Kam was unanimously voted for this prestigious award for being consistently & widely acclaimed for its best practices in efficient power solutions. Mr. Kanav Sachdev was there to receive the award from Dr. Gurinder Singh, Director General of Amity University.
This is not the first time that the prestigious University has lauded Su-Kam. In 2008, Su-Kam was conferred the HR Growth Award by the Amity International Business School on the occasion of the Fifth Global HR summit.
“Your staff and workers in the field were great. They did a wonderful job with the installation. Currently I am using SolarCon but I am planning to upgrade to run my entire household’s load on solar. I will definitely recommend Su-Kam to my friends and relatives. In fact I have already recommended Su-Kam to a friend of mine who lives in Delhi.” – Naveen Gulia, Sr. Technical Consultant, HP
Naveen Gulia, Senior Technical Consultant, HP, at his residence in Sector 45, Gurgaon.
Naveen Guliaa Senior Technical consultant at HP was always intrigued by the idea of clean, more affordable solar energy for his home. So when he decided to install solar panels on the rooftop of his residence in Sector 45, Gurgaon, he started collecting information on the internet. Naveen sent a query on Su-Kam’s website and within 24 hours a Su-Kam distributor in his vicinity called up and recommended the perfect solar package as per his requirement. From there Su-Kam’steam took care of everything from home inspections to solar panel installation. All he didwas watch it come together.
Naveen is using SolarCon a unique product from Su-Kam that can be attached to your existing inverter along with solar panels. It works intelligently to decide when to charge your inverter from solar or from the grid, depending on the availability of solar energy at that time. It hugely cuts down on your electricity bills. You can also monitor your saving with the LCD rupee saver display.
Naveen has been generating electricity from his solar panels for the past 2 months now and is extremely happy with the result. Su-Kam’s SolarCon harnesses solar energy and generates power to run all the lights and fans of his house. He is also happy that he is saving a lot of money. He now plans on upgrading to our solar PCU which will run heavier loads like AC.
As we know the India’s energy deficit is growing, solar could provide a major relief here. Modi Goverment knows this very well and that is why our Power Ministry is set to roll out an ambitious plan for the solar and renewable energy sectors both in terms of investments and implementation. The government aims to have 1, 00,000 MW of installed solar power capacity by 2022 from the present around 3,000 MW. To top it, Modi ji’s ‘Make in India’ initiative is encouraging many Indian businesses to do better.
With budget 2015 around the corner, India’s prestigious business magazine, Business World, asked our founder and MD, Kunwer Sachdeva, about his expectations for solar power sector from this year’s budget.
Here’s what he said:
“I strongly feel the government should offer more benefits to the individual customers and end-users in terms of tax rebate etc. to encourage them to switch to solar power back-up systems. Solar power equipments (like solar invertors, UPS, charge controllers) should be brought under ‘zero’ VAT/CST regime similar to solar panels, all across the country. Only then we’ll see significant increase in the sales of solar products in India.”
He’s put forth a list of things he expects to be taken into account:
- The 80% accelerated benefit should be extended to individual taxpayers as well for installing rooftop solar systems and other solar energy equipments
- Retail lending facility through commercial banks for buying solar energy equipments, should be made as easy as getting a consumer loan
- Interest paid on loans used for solar energy systems should be allowed as deduction from income while arriving (at) income tax for individual taxpayers as well
- Priority sector lending status for solar energy sector
- The use of solar energy must be made mandatory for new construction through building by-law
- RPO to be implemented strictly by imposing penalties on non implementation.
- All forms of tax, including CST, VAT and service tax, should be waived off on the grid connected and off grid solar energy projects using indigenously manufactured system for a period of five years
Doesn’t he make pretty good points here? We hope that our Finance Minister, that Shri. Arun Jaitly is listening.
Do you agree with Mr. Kunwer Sachdeva? Please tell us in comments below.
Last week, we invited our very special distributor from Syria. Abdul Rahman Issa has been Su-Kam’s proud channel partner since 2010. His fondness for Su-Kam and its products has only increased over the years. He was very happy to see our head office, R & D centre and meeting our MD, Kunwer Sachdeva, was like cherry on the cake
Mr. Abdul has been selling our batteries and inverters with ease but he now wants to opt for green energy by creating a market for Su-Kam’s solar products in his home country.
As many of you know, Syria is war-torn country. The power situation is so bad that people don’t get electricity for up to 15 hours every day. We at Su-Kam are so happy that we are able to help bring light in Syrian houses. We’re also looking forward to solar powered houses, businesses, and institutions in Syria. Our solar products are benefiting many Middle-east Asian and African countries – 35 schools in Rwanda (another developing country facing massive power shortage) have been powered by Su-Kam solar system.
Our, MD, Mr. Kunwer Sachdeva was very pleased to meet our special Su-Kamian from Syria. Mr. Kunwer said, “Owing to the wide variety of solar products, Su-Kam has an immense scope in Syria and Lebanon. You’ll soon see us making our mark in the market”.
All the best to team Su-Kam for solarising Syria. More power to you – literally.
The Ministry of New and Renewable Energy, Government of India organized India’s first Renewable Energy Global Investors Meet & Expo (RE-Invest) in Delhi to take forward PM Shri. Modi’s initiative, ‘Make in India’ for attracting investment in the renewable sector. Su-Kam was proud to be associated with the event.
Su-Kam’s stall at RE-Invest got a lot of attention from our new customers, Government officials, existing customers, and the Power Minister himself – we couldn’t have asked for more. A look at these great pictures will tell you why our stall was so popular at the event. We put together a nice display of our our solar products like Solarcon (an innovative equipment which can convert any ordinary inverter into solar inverter), solar DC systems, Grid-Tie inverters, Off-grid inverters, solar home lighting etc.
When Shri. Piyush Goyal, Minister of Power and Energy, visited our stall he was very impressed to see our solar DC systems. In particular, our remote controlled DC system ,through which he could switch on a fan using a remote, completely floored him. He was also very happy to know that Su-Kam home lighting system is powering 40,000 households in Uttar Pradesh under UP Govt’s Lohia Grameen Awaas Yojna. He even asked us if we are ready to light 1 crore homes in India – we of course said ‘yes’ to that.Our comparison tool kit, which compares electronic devices to gauge its efficiency and money saved, also intrigued him. Su-Kam’s comparison tool kit is first of its kind in India.
We must tell you that our Honorable Minister of Energy, Mr. Piyush has a good sense of humor. While he was viewing a video presentation of our UP project on our i-pad he jokingly asked if the i-pad also comes with the DC package. Everyone shared a good laugh over this.
This event was flagged by Honorable PM Shri. Modi to strengthen his ‘Make in India’ initiative, and Su-Kam is definitely one of the most successful examples of indigenous business. Mr. Piyush Goel aslso remarked that he feels glad to see an Indian company like Su-Kam doing so well in the field of renewable energy.
“In this age of globalisation, we have no option but to make a quantum leap in energy production and connectivity,” said Modi during inauguration of the event. “Fruits of development will not reach the common man until energy connectivity reaches every last household of the country.” We totally agree with him and are trying our best to provide electricity access to as many Indians as possible. Our MD, Kunwer Sachdeva, has said in a public statement that Su-Kam is considering to set up NBFC (non-banking finance company) to aid lower-income groups who can’t afford to buy inverters.
We’re very thankful to the organizers of the event for providing us with an excellent platform to reach out to more people who are interested in green energy. To everyone who visited our stall, thank you for your support.
Let’s so solar with Su-Kam
