India today has an installed domestic solar Cell manufacturing capacity of over 2000 MW, but the potential is a lot more. With the central government providing an enormous impetus on ‘Make in India’ for Solar, and with a super-ambitious target of 100 GW of Solar by 2022, prospects are good for solar Cell manufacturing in India. For those investors keen on putting up a solar cell manufacturing plant, Solar Mango, India’s leading solar power consulting and research firm, can provide a comprehensive, bankable DPR.

 Solar Mango strongly believes that DPR is not just a protocol document for the banks and other stake holders to have it in their files.

Developing a DPR that convinces the relevant stakeholders about the viability of the project in a scientific and justifiable manner could make all the difference between Yes and No for the project.

Who will benefit from our Solar Cell Manufacturing DPR?

  • Large Conglomerates/Businesses looking to diversify into cell manufacturing Large energy companies and established  entrepreneurs keen on venturing into solar cell  manufacturing business

  • Solar businesses – solar module makers, EPCs, developers, other component manufacturers – keen on vertical integration into solar cell manufacturing

What is Unique about Solar Mango’s DPR?

Solar cell manufacturing has its potential, and its risks and challenges. It is important that a DPR provides critical inputs on both these aspects.

Our custom solar cell manufacturing DPR, in addition to providing detailed inputs on the business model, technologies and financials, also includes sections on risks and risk mitigation that clearly spell out areas of uncertainties, and also how the adverse effects of each uncertainty can be mitigated.

Each DPR is specially crafted for the specific investment and investor and includes the latest data and estimates for evaluating the market, technical and economic feasibility of the project. We also factor in the latest in government policies and also incorporate industry perspectives on possible future trends in such policies in regulations.

Why Solar Mango?

In the past decade, Solar Mango has provided over 25 Indian businesses with such high quality DPRs for solar cell and module manufacturing, and other solar energy manufacturing opportunities- businesses that range from small entrepreneurs putting up 10 MW solar module manufacturing plants to large industrial giants planning to invest in 500 MW solar cell manufacturing lines, and even prospects who are considering investing in large-scale solar wafer manufacturing.
