If Solar Impulse can fly over the world with solar then why not metros and railways. What Solar Impulse did across the world, Boond Energy did it with Delhi metro in India. I was fortunate to see the Solar Impulse launch in Abu Dhabi in Feb 2015 and Delhi metro project in July 2015. Boond has been the leader organisation in solar systems in India and has now developing innovative financial and technical solutions in roof top also. Their opex scheme on roof top, where a house owner makes only a marginal investment and get significant electricity savings is incredible. Innovative solar solution of Boond team (Mr Rustam, ECO) was selected in the latest edition (July 2015) of Fortune magazine and hopefully many more to come.
I was very impressed by the Boond team’s ability to deliver and complete installation of a 150kW solar PV system at Delhi Metro Badkal Mor station in a short period of time. The team is technically sound, and equally comfortable designing and installing rooftop solar PV systems from tens of kilowatts to larger rooftop installations running into hundreds of kilowatts in size. I am sure the installation will serve Delhi’s prestigious metro corporation for years to come.
“Our experience with Boond is very positive. The technical quality of the systems is excellent and the villagers report clear improvements in the quality of lighting. They find the price appropriate for their income levels. According to our data, people rarely abandon the service after their initial subscription, suggesting a positive experience. I have personally interviewed several Boond service subscribers, and they were all delighted by Boond’s presence. Access to affordable high-quality lighting has resulted in clear improvements in quality of life in areas where Boond operates”
“BOOND is a highly innovative company which combats energy poverty through sustainable energy development and socially sustainable business models. The journey of BOOND is fascinating starting from a noble idea, then turning it to a tangible and affordable solar energy product, the solar pico-grid, and now scaling it up and distributing it all over the country for a major impact among poor people without access to electricity. BOOND is a dynamic company, constantly under transformation to capture the best of new innovations to serve people”
“They are a completely committed team and we think their approach – while not totally unique will be successful in their target market”
“They (Boond Team) are very dedicated and stubborn about delivering solar solutions to extremely marginalized and deprived people, the ones neglected the most”
“We give Boond a special discount of 5% since they do such an incredibility hard job. We hope that that they can pass it on and increase the impact”
