Best way to 'Go Solar'

About Us

exchange4solar is India's 1st online marketplace for solar energy solutions


We aim to drive the growth of Indian solar industry by providing a platform for various market participants to work with each other and thus lead to synergies. This synergy will drive down cost of solar projects thereby leading to higher penetration of the same in the country.

PROBLEM THAT WE ADDRESS:

Buying a solar energy solution for your factory, office or home is difficult. Some of challenges faced by a typical buyer while trying to switch to solar are as below:


1. How do I find out good solar vendors to offer me a right solution?


2. How do I determine the right quality?


3. What is the right price to pay for such a system?


4. How can I get financing for my system?


5. Can I just buy solar power just like I buy power from electricity grid without having to invest? What is the lowest tariff that I can get?


6. If my system has to last for 25 long years, what kind of after sales support is available from installer and at what price?


If you are planning to switch to solar, you will have to find answers to all of above by going through a long drawn buying process. This process is effort intensive and time consuming. Today this process takes couple of months and sometimes even a year or more. And even after going through this tiring process, you can never be sure if you have got a good quality, a competitive pricing and that you will receive a good after sales service support.


We are here to help you buy solar in a hassle free manner. With exchange4solar you will be able to make an informed purchase right from your laptop. All this in less than 2 weeks.
