We look forward to work in synergy towards our common goal of reducing the carbon footprint.”
J.P. Chalasani, Group CEO, Suzlon Group said, “We welcome Axis Energy Group in our customer profile and would be delighted to forge a solid partnership with our maiden venture with them.

It not only delivers higher energy yield, but also offers higher return on investment for customers. The product is continuing to gain traction in the market.
