The Company forayed into Solar panel manufacturing in 2007 and built a state-of-the-art plant spread over 150,000 sq. ft. in Greater Noida with a 450 MW capacity, which can be further expanded to 2 GW within the same infrastructure.

Commenting on the company’s IPO plans, Mr. Ashwani Sehgal, Chairman & Managing Director, Alpex Solar Limited, said, “As India aims to achieve zero emissions by 2070, adoption of renewable energy plays a critical role in its ambitious plan. To meet market demand for large-sized cells with multi-bus bars (MBB) and the latest types of Mono Perc, Topcon, and Bifacial cells, we are planning to raise funds to expand our business operations by increasing our capacity from 450 MW to 1.2 GW in the existing manufacturing unit. We are also planning to build a new plant dedicated to producing aluminium frames, eliminating our dependency on imports of the frames from other countries.”
