About Narasimhan Santhanam

I cofounded Solar Mango, and serve as its Director. After graduating from IIT Madras & IIM Calcutta, and after working in different industries, I have had the privilege to assist companies along the entire spectrum of the solar PV value chain – from polysilicon to power plants to offgrid solar products. My work in India also gives me hope that solar can be a real game changer for the country, both from economic and socio-development perspectives. If you or your company is interested in assistance in solar, do drop in a note to narsi@solarmango.com and I will do my best. You can connect with me at LinkedIn here.

Why Indian Solar Power Plants Should Use Trackers

It was not long ago that solar trackers were considered an unnecessary luxury while setting up solar power plants. Although they brought about an increase in plant performance, developers weren’t willing to invest on the additional costs.

Solar Trackers are devices that come in conjunction with the mounting structures and help direct the panels in the […]

How to Choose the Best Solar Panel?

Solar panels are the heart of a solar power system as they are the ones that generate electricity! The rest of the solar power plant is only to ensure that the electricity thus generated is converted and transported optimally.

In addition to its fundamental role, solar panels account for around 60% of the total cost of a solar […]
