Amazon India Now Has a Solar Power Store

The interest of the Indian people in using solar energy is definitely growing. Since India has high levels of irradiation, Indians can easily harness solar light and turn it to energy. For that, you only have to install in your house or workplace the right solar equipment and let the sun do the rest. And some products are even easier to use and don’t require an installation, like a solar backpack that allows you to charge your cell phone.

However, where can you buy those kind of products? And at what price? Thinking of that, Amazon India has launched an online market for solar and wind power products. This store provides a wide selection of energy saving and eco-friendly products.

“We understand that consumer mindset towards energy efficiency and carbon footprint is undergoing a positive change,” said Samir Kumar, Amazon India director of category management. “We witness this every day on Amazon India as more and more customers today prefer to purchase products that are eco-friendly.”

In this post, we show how the Amazon India Solar Power Store works and what kind of products you can find and buy.

What Can I Find on Amazon India Solar Power Store?

The Amazon online store isn’t new for Indians. After opening in India in 2013, working as an affiliate of the American e-commerce company Amazon.com Inc., the store has, in more or less two years, marketed a diverse range of products, like clothes, books, movies, computers… and even eco-friendly products. The new Solar Power Store now offers all the solar energy products in one place.

“Our new Solar Power Store offers customers across India easy and convenient access to a wide range of eco-friendly and energy-saving products that they can get delivered to their doorstep”, said Amazon India director of category management.

The majority of Solar Power Store’s products is for domestic use. Among them you can find  really interesting ones, like a waterproof solar power system, a multi-function charger for mobile phones, a solar backpack, which allows users to charge phones, solar LED lamps with mosquitoes repeller and a solar security light with intrusion warning.

In addition, the Solar Power Store has also some advanced equipment, like solar controllers, inverters and even installation kits. In total, there are over 400 products in Amazon India’s Solar Power Store, by more than 50 different brands, including Bajaj, Sun King, Eveready and Tiny Deal.

The launch of this Solar Power Store coincided with the onset of summer in India, when irradiation levels reach their peak and power demand is highest.

Overall, the shop is another step towards India’s energy transformation and power in people’s own hands. You don’t have to make large investments, such as installing solar panels on the roof: you can start by buying solar products. By making small choices – replacing kerosene lamps by LED lamps, for instance – they will help the environment no matter what, even if it is only a little bit.
