Amazon India Launches Dedicated Solar Power Store

Banking on the impending boom in the Indian solar power market, e-commerce giant Amazon has launched a dedicated store for solar power equipment.

Amazon India has started offering solar power equipment through a dedicated store on its website. The launch of the store was recently announced by Amazon India director of category management, Samir Kumar.

The store is currently offering solar lanterns, solar-powered fans, and solar-powered phone chargers. Equipment for household solar power systems like solar panels, inverters, charge controllers, and flexible solar panels are also available on the store.

Solar lanterns have become quite popular in India as several remote villages still do not have access to consistent power supply. Several non-government organisations have distributed thousands of solar lanterns across several under-privileged communities.

This cause has been championed by The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI) and NDTV, one of the leading media groups in India. These two companies have launched a crowd-funded campaign to acquire and distribute solar power lanterns in communities that lack access to electricity.

The Indian government has set a target to provide power connectivity to every household by 2019. Small-scale solar power systems are expected to play a critical role in achievement of this target as implementation transmission and distribution networks on a large-scale would be a highly time and capital-intensive exercise.

India plans to have an installed solar power capacity of 100 GW by 2022, while a large amount of capacity would be based on utility-scale power projects, a sizeable capacity would also include household solar power systems.
