NEW DELHI, December 24, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

These Companies are not Only Contributing to a Major Transition in the
Country, but Have Also Made a Mark in the Solar Industry

After a period of lull, the Indian solar industry has once again rejuvenated
with the announcement of the draft second phase of Jawaharlal Nehru National
Solar Mission (JNNSM). The government has once again geared up and is giving
an aggressive push to the solar industry, as by 2017, India is expected to
have 4000 MW of solar energy under JNNSM and 2500 MW under state solar

This scale of growth could mean that by the end of the 13th Plan period
(2022), solar projects could meet as much as 7 percent of India's power
requirement, replacing 30 percent of coal imports and resulting in foreign
exchange savings of up to $8 billion. Yet, contrary to this anticipated growth
in solar industry, in the last quarter (July-September 2012), there has been a
capacity addition of only 67.25 MW of PV-based capacity in India, a drastic
drop from the 401.74 MW of PV-based capacity added in the first quarter and
340.62 MW added in the second quarter this year. Yet, there are a few
companies that are doing well in the industry.

Electronics Bazaar magazine has attempted to list out the top 20 leading solar
firms in the country. "These companies are not only contributing to a major
transition in the country - from conventional power to solar energy, but have
also made a mark in the solar industry," says Ramesh Chopra, Vice Chairman,
EFY Group. "The 'Leading Players' column in Electronics Bazaar magazine is a
regular feature, where we rank top campanies of different segments of the
electronics industry, based on their turnovers," adds Ramesh Chopra.

Some of the top players in this list are Central Electronics, Emmvee Solar
Systems, Jupiter Solar Power, Lanco Solar, Mahindra Solar One, Moser Baer
Solar, Reliance Industries Ltd. - Solar Group, Surana Ventures, Tata Power
Solar Systems and Vikram Solar.

The full report, titled '20 solar giants in India' is available in the January
2013 issue of Electronics Bazaar magazine.
