As the world endeavors to reduce its reliance on fossil fuels and combat climate change, the demand for renewable energy has increased. And, the solar industry is a key player in this transition to renewable energy, and it does not appear to be declining in the coming years. In the ever-evolving landscape of energy consumption, Sungrass India stands out as a beacon of innovation, commitment, and sustainability. Founded by a group of seasoned IT professionals with extensive experience in top multinational corporations, Sungrass India has emerged as a key player in the solar energy sector.
“The brainchild of a group of senior executives with backgrounds in prestigious IT firms such as CSC, IBM, Wipro, and HCL, Sungrass was conceived out of a shared vision: to bridge the gap between renewable energy solutions and the pressing need for cleaner and safer resources. The driving force behind the establishment of the firm was a simple yet powerful notion: regard less of individual roles or wealth, everyone requires clean energy, and safeguarding the planet's future is a collective responsibility”, explains Kumar, Executive Director, Sungrass India.
Additionally, Sungrass India's founders recognized that the current energy landscape required transformation to ensure a sustainable future. With a comprehensive understanding of the dire implications of climate change, the company chose to focus its efforts on renewable energy, particularly solar power. In alignment with the Indian government's ambitious target of achieving 500 gigawatts of renewable energy by 2030, Sungrass India embarked on its journey to become a catalyst for change in the energy sector.
Like any pioneering venture, Sungrass encountered its share of challenges.
One primary hurdle was altering the perception that solar energy was prohibitively expensive. The company's early days were dedicated to debunking this misconception through education and awareness. Additionally, establishing credibility and gaining the trust of potential customers proved to be a challenge, especially in an industry where traditional power sources held sway. That’s why, Sungrass offers a trio of services: solar energy solutions, air-water generation i.e., generating clean safe pure drinking water from air without any need for input water or bore water, and IT services. The company's solar offerings encompass the entire spectrum, from consulting and custom integration to maintenance and mega-watt installations. “What sets Sungrass apart is its commitment to leveraging technology for accurate solution design. For instance, the company uses advanced software to determine solar power output based on location-specific data, over coming doubts about energy generation in diverse terrains”, adds Kumar.
Sungrass India is driven by a dual commitment: to both society & the planet
Moreover, Sungrass’ growth trajectory has been remarkable, even amidst challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic. The company's building blocks namely people, processes, tools, and technology have played a pivotal role in its growth. Further by collaborating with partners who act as the face of Sungrass, the company has been able to extend its reach and bring solar solutions to diverse regions across the country. This strategic approach has contributed to the company's growth, with a projected 200 percent expansion in the current year.
Therefore, at its core, Sungrass is driven by a dual commitment: to both society and the planet. By making renewable energy accessible and promoting its adoption, the company contributes to the reduction of carbon emissions and aligns with global efforts to combat climate change. Installing 1 KW of solar power plant is equivalent to planting 40 trees and managing them throughout their life.
Hence, Sungrass’ journey from IT leadership to solar innovation exemplifies the power of determined minds, technological prowess, and unwavering commitment to sustainability. As the world grapples with the urgent need for clean energy solutions, Sungrass India stands as a shining example of how a group of individuals with a shared vision can drive change and create a brighter, greener future for all.
