Solar power is ‘pollution-free’ and it is the best renewable energy source. It causes ‘no greenhouse gases’ to be emitted after its installation. It’s about making use of the energy source to good effect. Solar power is the conversion of energy from sunlight into electricity. Solar Energy techniques came to light in 2006 and it is now gradually reaching out to all parts of the world. Since solar panels are a one-time investment with a guaranteed life of 25 years, ‘solar energy’ could make a huge difference in people’s lives in the times to come.
Talking about the virtual importance of solar technology in India, we have witnessed more of them in key places. Solar panels are installed in apartments, houses, offices, stadium, railway station and now it’s being implemented on trains as well.
In a bid to motivate people to follow solar energy, Hartek Solar Pvt Ltd was established in 2017 by Simarpreet Singh. The Chandigarh-based firm strives to offer small-scale solar solutions and is aiming to promote clean energy through its customised residential rooftop solar kits. The company built the product as per people’s demand with minimal maintenance cost. Simarpreet and his vibrant team of 30 have already installed more than 300 solar kits across residences in the states of Punjab, Haryana, Chandigarh, Gujarat, Rajasthan, Andhra Pradesh, and Madhya Pradesh over the last 2 years.
“Solar energy is the only form of power that is unrestricted and almost evenly distributed to everyone. If harnessed effectively as an alternative to other fossil fuels, it can help save trees and reduce carbon footprint as well. This was the idea behind establishing Hartek Solar. We wanted to provide the best way for every single individual to use solar energy,” Simarpreet Singh tells in an exclusive interview with SocialStory.
At a time when citizens are fighting climate change and pollution, Simarpreet is promoting clean energy through their product. He was also featured in the coveted Forbes 30 Under 30 Asia list of achievers for his innovative small-scale solar solutions. “We are working towards scaling our efforts to promote clean energy in every nook and corner of India. The goal is to help every individual offset their carbon footprint by using solar energy. Once we reach economies of scale, we are even planning to offer our services to people residing in rural areas at a reduced price,” says Simarpreet.
