Overcoming challenges and emerging as a frontrunner

“The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten.”

There are many issues ailing the Solar Energy industry in India. Poor quality products sold by some companies to make a quick buck, have been a dampener on the growth of the industry. If the customer ends up stuck with a poor-quality product, after incurring the investment cost on the system, it is unfair and disappointing. Bad after sales services also haunt the industry.

Dr. Solar combats these issues by stressing on the quality of their products. It is firmly against cheap, cost- cutting measures. It delivers a good quality product and after sales services that the customer can count on.  The company has strived to educate customers on the advantages of solar energy and the quality that they guarantee. Customers should not be swayed by throwaway prices offered on solar systems as only a good quality system will function effectively for years to come.
