Adani Solar has launched its retail distribution business in Tamil Nadu, with K Powers, a Kondaas Group company, as its channel partner for the State.

According to Ramesh Nair, Chief Executive Officer of Adani Solar, its retail distribution business through channel partners was launched two months ago and is present in Rajasthan, Gujarat, Delhi, Uttar Pradesh, Punjab, Haryana, and Kerala.

It will be present in 15 States by July-end.

It hopes to have 20 MW installed in Tamil Nadu in the next one year through the channel partner, who will soon appoint distributors.


The partner can take part in government tenders too for installations up to 200 KW. The retail business focuses on installations up to 200 KW. The thrust will be on the residential segment. Gujarat is the most happening State now for retail business, followed by Rajasthan, he added.

S. Sanjay Kondaas, Managing Partner of K Powers, said it will have more distributors in cities such as Chennai and Madurai. “There is opportunity in different sectors, including commercial,” he said.

A press release from the company said Tamil Nadu has been encouraging installation of rooftop solar panels to make households self-sufficient in electricity. Through the company’s association with its channel partner, it will offer certified solar panels at competitive rates.

Cecil Augustine, General Manager, Business Development, of Adani Solar was present at the launch here on Saturday.
