There are several reasons for Delta’s remarkable success in the Indian solar inverter market:
- Delta Group has had a long term presence in India with a widespread channel partner network and presence across all major cities.
- The Delta India Solar inverter team has service engineers and warehouse locations across India through which they can offer timely support to solar customers.
- Apart from post-sales support the solar inverter team also offers customers pre-sales and applications engineering support. The application engineering team can offer solutions for complex customer issues and tailor-made solutions such as reverse power flow protection, fuel-saving controllers for diesel generators and customized SCADA & monitoring solutions.
- Delta offers the right products for both local and remote monitoring which makes for the right product, price and performance for a PV plant.
- Delta has ready stocks of inverters across warehouses because of which delivery time has never remained a challenge for us.
- Delta puts in extra effort towards key account management to accommodate different requirements across customers.
