India’s solar power capacity doubled to almost 7gw in the last 18 months bringing our capacity to 43gw overtaking hydro-electricity capacity. The Government of India is committed towards solar power generation. This shows the government’s serious intent towards pushing solar power as a priority renewable source of energy. For an EPC getting the right hardware to monitor capacity utilization of solar parks and roof top solar instalments is very important. System errors and reductions in power are often not detected due to non-reliable or faulty monitoring equipment.

Our product SBM-16 is the perfect fit for monitoring output. With its precise monitoring capabilities and an extended warranty of 6 years we are committed towards providing quality product to the market.


One of India’s largest solar park/solar roof top.
