Gensol launches online bidding platform for solar equipment in India

EPC and O&M firm Gensol Group has launched an online marketplace for PV equipment installers within India, as well as a new plug-and-play solar inverter.

The products were launched at the REI Expo near Delhi. The company claims that ‘Ezybidding’ is a first of its kind mechanism for solar equipment installers to participate in time-bound competitive bidding to procure equipment “at the right price from credible vendors”. Once a project is confirmed, installers can post their requirement on the Ezysolare platform as an ‘EzyBid’, which is viewable by all equipment suppliers before bidding is started. The platform allows installers to communicate with multiple vendors in one place

To date roughly 1,300 products from 200 brands are listed on Ezysolare.

They have also launched plug-and-play solar inverter ‘EzyBox’ which can be installed on any kind of roof or terrain in less than an hour, the company claims. It is also modular allowing for the addition of batteries with solar panels to increase generation five-fold from 500W to 2.5kW. The aim is to address issues with mobility, space limitation and grid connectivity.
