Global solar panel manufacturer and EPC provider Goldi Solar has announced that it will train and hire over 2,000 employees by 2025, the company said in a press release. The company’s aim is to encourage India's economic growth while taking a climate-friendly approach.
As per the company’s statement, they are planning to create an ecosystem that would allow for the creation and growth of green jobs in the solar industry. The latest move comes after Goldi Solar powered Surat’s textile market with solar panels to facilitate green growth. The company also participated at the Global Patidar Business Summit 2022 – a three-day trade expo with the mission to provide an impetus for socio-economic development of Surat.
Ishver Dholakiya, Founder & Managing Director, Goldi Solar, said “We are excited to be a part of GPBS 2022 and we are aligned with Sardar Vallabhai Patel’s vision of contributing to the nation through social development and transformation. Advocating solar energy and making India energy independent is the key to attaining that vision. Training and absorption into the industry is also crucial in this journey.”
Post the participation, the company will also roll out an initiative to encourage and mentor young micro-entrepreneurs who have innovative ideas for the solar sector.
The company was founded in 2011 and is headquartered in Surat, Gujarat, India. It caters to several international brands in 20+ countries.
Bharat Bhut, Cofounder & Director, Goldi Solar, said “With Gujarat becoming a solar manufacturing hub, the state will see a rapid transition to solar power. Most manufacturing companies are power intensive and consumption of power is high. The ongoing energy crisis and rising coal prices have affected the profitability of all industries. Solar is the most viable and smart option to reduce costs.”
