Amazon launches solar power store in India


Amazon India has launched an online solar power store that offers customers a range of PV-related products including solar panels, solar lights, USB chargers and a number of other items.

The online marketplace has been created especially for the Indian market, and sells a range of products from domestic producers. Although the majority of items are solar-powered chargers, fans, lanterns and lights, consumers can also purchase solar panels and other PV system components online, including inverters and installation kits.

Amazon India is an affiliate of U.S.-based e-commerce company Inc., and offers customers cash-on-delivery payment options as well as financing models that can help lower initial upfront costs.

“We understand that consumer mindset towards energy efficiency and carbon footprint is undergoing a positive change,” said Amazon India director of category management, Samir Kumar.

“We witness this every day on Amazon India as more and more customers today prefer to purchase products that are eco-friendly. Our new Solar Power Store offers customers across India easy and convenient access to a wide range of eco-friendly and energy-saving products that they can get delivered to their doorstep.”

Indian state of Maharashtra announced increased solar ambitions last week, including a 25 GW renewable energy target, of which solar PV would be expected to generate around half. Currently, the state has a target of 14.4 GW, which is in line with nationwide targets set under the Jawaharlal Nehru National Solar Mission (JNNSM).

In the U.S., Amazon has explored the option of utilizing Tesla's new commercial-scale Powerpack battery system to aid the company's solar energy objectives.
