“At Jupiter, we believe in sustainable growth and in creating a greener world for our future generations. The genesis of renewable energy lies in utilising the earth’s resources to create energy for the world without harming the environment.

Backed by a passion to excel, we are all set to leverage our inherent strengths to produce world-class renewable energy products, thus paving the way for a greener, cleaner world of Tomorrow.”

Toward that end, we set up a state–of-the-art PV Cell manufacturing unit at Baddi, Himachal Pradesh. This plant was set-up in Technical collaboration with Centrotherm AG, the market leader in Solar Technologies.

Through continuous process improvements, better tooling and training and development of our engineers we could raise the capacity of this plant from 7.68 million Cells (32 MW) to 11 million cells (50 MW) and the average efficiency of Cells from 15.8% to 16.9%.

We have further raised our Cell manufacturing capacity to 130 MW enhanced average cell efficiency to 18% in January 2015 and also plan to move up the value chain by getting into Module manufacturing and providing Turn-Key solutions to Solar Power developers.

I believe Solar Power is an extremely potent vehicle for distributing development geographically and among economically backward sections spread over rural and tribal India. Desiring to play a positive role in this, the company has plans to strategically move in the Value chain closer to the customer by establishing Solar farms for both off grid and on grid applications. This initiative will be taken in partnership with Infrastructure companies in India.

We desire to be a global player known for our technologically advanced and high quality solar products and services.”
