In India, the solar industry will grow like anything in next decade or two. As the current govt. is also supporting renewable and the results are in front of us. India’s utility solar capacity grows 72 per cent in 2018. Now you can imagine the grown in coming years,” says Niket Shah, Managing Director, Mechatronik Technologies. A solar energy solution provider, Mechatronik specializes in Solar PV projects execution for Industry, Commercial and Residential as well. Housing a strong technocrat team, the company strongly believes in shaping the solar revolution. Carrying forward the rich Legacy and precise Project Execution of Mechatronik Group, Mechatronik Solar, since 2014, is building great success stories. It has successfully projected its capabilities in private and govt. sectors.

The Genesis
Mechatronik was established in June 2010 by Niket and one of his college friends. At that time, the focus was on the solar water heater and solar street for residential, commercial and industrial projects. Additionally, they carried out several projects for the govt. of Gujarat too. In 2014, the duo converted this firm into private limited with the belief that the future will change the game of the renewable industry. “With more than 1500 Installations of Solar water heater systems and more than 2500 Installations in Solar street lights in local Indian markets, now our entire centre of attention is solar rooftops and EPC solar projects,” informs Niket.

While initially, it was quite a task to convince customers to go for solar products because of less awareness and cost, there were also customers who believed in Mechatronik’s long-lasting and superior solar solutions. Eventually, with word-of-mouth publicity, the company’s solutions reached to a wider base of customers across Industry, Commercial and Residential purposes. Today, Mechatronik has more than 3000 happy customers in Gujarat itself and is widely known for its solar products range.

Being Better
Mechatronik has a team of 12 qualified engineers to serve all the customers in different departments varying from sales to service. The team is spearheaded by leaders, who are committed to actively participate in the growth of Solar in India. A balance of young and experienced, dynamic and traditional is what team Mechatronik can be defined as. “I personally feel and in fact follow the principle of work and fun balance. We have a team of an average age group of 28-30 years and so we are fairly comfortable with each in sharing our work and ideas. All of the team members
here know the value of customers and so everything is in place, “Niket mentions.

Since inception,Mechatronik has registered an exponential growth. In last year, the company acquired the business of 2 Cr and this year it is likely to cross 10Cr. “In the current year, we have started expanding in Punjab and Haryana. We are registered with both the govt. to do solar projects in their states. We have also started working with many govt. bodies,” he adds.

"With more than 1500 Installations of Solar water heater systems and more than 2500 Installations in Solar street lights in local Indian markets, now the company focuses on solar rooftops and EPC solar projects"

At present, the company has equity partners to grow its business and expansion. “In one or two years, we envision having SME IPO for expanding in other states or most probably doing solar projects in other countries too. In contrast with the past, solar rooftop industry is booming like never before and now we are concentrating on Solar PV only. So my idea is to keep updating ourselves as per the market changes. Also, expanding in other states will be a game changer for us,” smiles Niket.

Mechatronik Projects
•Rooftop Residence When it comes to residential solar Rooftop installation in India, Mechatronik Solar takes the lead with its technocrat solutions. It is important to understand the importance of shifting to a solar panel option. Of course, the big advantage is the ability of solar to be eco-friendly Features
•Discovered price of 69,000/- per kW with 5 year AMC
•Ministry of New and Renewable Energy provide 30 percent subsidy
•Government of Gujarat provided Rs. 10,000/-per kW with maximum limit of Rs. 20,000/- as subsidy
•Wheeling/ Transmission charges: No Charges
•Use all household appliances on Solar (Fridge, A.C, Fan, T.V, Light etc.)
•Surplus generation to be paid by DISCOM (Torrent, PGVCL, UGVCL,MGVCL, DGVCL)
•Meter:Bi-directional Meter and SolarMeter
•1kW Solar Rooftop system requires approx. 100sq.ft. space
•1kW system generates approx.1300-1500 units per year

•Commercial
With the installation of solar panels,
it is easier to generate more electricity. Investment in Solar Rooftop system makes is profitable with long term returns. Mechatronik Solar uses a three step approach to implement solar rooftop solutions for its clients. This includes:


•Site visit & Survey:Acomprehensive analysis that weighs the pros and cons of the location, focusing on understanding the best type of installation possible

•Techno-Commercial Proposal: Preparing an approximate cost sheet to give the client an idea about the expenditure to be expected

•Accurate Installation: Customized panels are then installed in a phased out manner for best possible effectiveness

Features
•Multi-PERC technology with high efficiency.
•Excellent low light & long wavelength.
•Highest area efficiency in its class
•Resistant to PID (85 Degrees Centigrade, Humidity, 168 Hours@–1000V)
•27 years of linear performance warranty


•Industrial
Solar system, especially solar PV can be set up on Industrial buildings for lighting, AC, machine load and other usage. This helps business move away from relying solely on central power plants and dramatically reduce grid electricity use and electricity bills. For most industrial buildings, rooftop solar technology is the clear choice as most other renewable energies aren’t quite ready for prime time in the small-installation. They thrive in large megawatt-sized developments. Solar can be a solution almost everywhere.

Large,flat,relatively empty roofs top most industrial facilities and ware houses, creating a solar energy system’s version of prime real estate. Low-slope industrial rooftops cover approximately 13-billion sq.yd. worldwide, enough to generate more than 800 gigawatts of electricity. These flat and often easily accessible rooftops make solar-system installation and maintenance easy on roofers, solar photo voltaic integrator, and the industry owners.

Industry can get depreciation benefit also by installing solar rooftop or ground mounted solar systems.
