Recently, after months of rigorous testing and auditing, Jetion Solar (China) Co., Ltd. (hereinafter referred to as "Jetion Solar") obtained the Indian BIS certificate finally.
The Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) is the national Standards Body of India working under the aegis of Ministry of Consumer Affairs, Food & Public Distribution, Government of India. It is established by the Bureau of Indian Standards Act, 1986, for providing end customers with safe reliable quality goods. The certificate is a necessary pass for photovoltaic modules to enter the Indian market. It has been widely recognized in India and neighboring countries. Products that pass the certification are a symbol of high-quality products in India.
The test was completed by the Hi Physix laboratory, a leading testing and calibration laboratory in India. After evaluating the mechanical structure, electrical safety and performance of the product, Jetion Solar’s high-efficiency modules fully meet the requirements of the Indian standards.
Jetion Solar has been committed to the expansion and layout of the international market. The successful acquisition of BIS certificate not only strongly confirms the excellent performance of Jetion Solar’s products, further enhance the brand competitiveness in the PV market, but also provides a strong guarantee for subsequent extension in the Indian market and even the South Asian market.
We will continue to expand our global marketing network and service system, provide customers all over the world with high-quality, reliable products and services, and contribute to the global energy transition and sustainable development.
India is located in the tropics and subtropics with rich solar energy resources. Among the world's top 20 economies, India has the highest average amount of sunshine. At the same time, India's PV market is developing rapidly due to its high economic growth and expanding demand for electricity. As of the first half of 2021, India's cumulative solar installations has exceeded 43 GW, according to a report by Mercom India Research, a clean energy communications and consulting firm. India is expected to add more than 10 GW of new solar installations by 2021, returning to its position as the world's third largest photovoltaic market.
At present, India’s safeguard duty (SGD) on solar imports expired on July 29, 2021, and the new basic customs duty (BCD) - 40% tariff on solar modules and 25% tariff on solar cells, is to come into force from 1 April 2022, which means that Chinese photovoltaic products exported to India will usher in an eight-month tax holiday.
