“The industry braces Prime Minister Modi’s Vocal-for-Local initiative. How does MicroSun positions itself in playing an active role within the industry?”

Prime Minister's Vocal-for-Local Initiative has pumped up the citizens and local brands of India to motivate and encourage the usage of local brands/domestic brands. These local brands can now enhance their outrage and reach. MicroSun Solar has received a tremendous increase in inquiries and preference amidst and after lockdown uplift. We are playing an active role as a domestic manufacturer and contribute as much as possible to meet India's renewable target of 100 GW by 2022.

The Industry on an overview, it is picking up at protracted rate, however, it will take its own time to recover and heal the market practices. The supply chain needs to be in motion to bring the fund flow.

“MicroSun Solar has resumed operations after the lockdown. What precautions is the company taking to safeguard its stakeholders?”

It is crucial to adapt to the present-day need while the Government is working towards restoring the supply chain. Starting the production with new stringent guidelines from the Ministry of Home Affairs is a basic step to provide a safe working environment to our employees and prepare for the requisites of full-scale production shortly.

Comprehensive protocols have been put in place to ensure that there is full compliance with the safety and social distancing norms. The wearing of masks is mandatory for everyone, the body temperature of every individual is monitored twice a day and anyone showing signs of sickness is prohibited from entering the manufacturing/office/warehouse facility.

“In your view, what are the key challenges currently for the solar industry which requires immediate attention in regards to policy framework?”

We are way behind in policy framework, and unless we develop our efficiencies and reach economies of scale, the overheads cost to any company is always high. We need 3 major reformations: land, capital, and labour reforms.

Our labor laws are weird! There needs to be a shift by regulatory bodies. Our capital structure needs to be simpler and less costly. Our land-related formalities are outdated. Govt needs to help companies reduce their fixed cost by offering land at concession (strategy what the Chinese used). The most key challenge currently is reducing taxes for MSMEs and related industries.

“What is MicroSolar Sun’s stand w.r.t its position in the customer’s buying cycle?”

The USP of our product and solution is that we do not compromise on our premium quality at any cost. The solar industry is more trending towards a price-driven market and we stand on the other side of the corner, sticking to our quality because we see the future and not the present. Talking about the solutions, we feel the better services and solutions that we have provided to our customers with near perfection has gained us a huge amount of positive response. The customer is completely satisfied with the content of the work we do. We want our customers happy all the time. Be it Post-sales services, or installations, or EPC for grid-connected projects, etc. Today you see, one by one few companies in this sector are shutting down its operations because they took the shortcut to earn the goodwill and profit – for which they compromised on aspects of the product and are vanished.
