Reenergics India Enterprises is created not as a company to earn profits like other companies but, with a national vision and mission to change the rooftop solar model altogether and provide commoditized hassle free solution fully acceptable to the consumers. The mission is to “solarize India through rooftop”
The promoter of the company has an entrepreneuring mind since beginning and wanted to become an entrepreneur right after graduation from MNIT Allahabad. To acquire the in-depth knowledge about the prevailing system to support entrepreneurs, he attended one month training program on “Industrial Entrepreneurship” organized by UPSSIL and MONERECO and submitted the project for manufacturing a a mechanical torchlight which does not require any cell nor charging. Project was accepted also but then, due to acute financial constraints faced by his family, his dream got shelved and he was forced to go for service. He cleared the recruitment procedure of country’s only Power giant BHEL in first attempt and joined their Power Projects Division in technical services department. His posting was at different project sites and responsibility was to provide technical/ engineering trouble shooting to the problems faced at site during installation, carrying out all startup/commissioning, full loading, performance guarantee run and handing over of the fully performing units to the customer, formulating safety/ O&M instructions and training to customer engineers for operation and maintenance of the BHEL supplied sets. He impressed his superiors right from the beginning for his ‘out of the box’ thinking and innovative approaches to all the existing procedures and his ability to modify all established approaches/procedures to have visibly much better results. He was not contented with the knowledge of his own area but he wanted more and soon after mastering his area of turbo-generator and auxiliaries, AVRs he volunteered to take up the responsibility of turbine area too! After taking charge of Turbine and Auxiliaries area he modified all the old existing system and procedures and established himself as TG specialist in BHEL. His mantra for success was simple, “love and enjoy your responsibility and first work with your own hands before dictating to others”. His attachment to his job was so intense that he used to know about finest of the details about the new job within a short span of time. In his long career of about 40 years, he worked and then headed almost in all the areas(BTG+BOP) of Thermal power generation sector like; Basic engineering, Installation, Commissioning, O&M, Stabilization and PG testing, Trouble Shooting, Breakdown/ Emergency Maintenance, Planned Maintenance, Minor and major overhauling, Renovation & modernization, Plant Operations Management and Training.
His overall exposure, enterprising nature and hunger for deeper/ updated knowledge, has given him an edge to understand the power generation plants discrete and integrated. His integrity to his overall knowledge and capability to analyze any technical/ engineering problem was just exemplary.
Due to his flare in assessing/analyzing/ providing out of box solutions, he enjoyed taking up and resolving complex technical problems which has been termed as impossible by other industry experts. This was the reason that he never retuned unsuccessful from any challenging assignment in his total career span. He accepted and accomplished many splendid challenges with great ease and established himself as expert technical trouble shooter in power generation industry. Persons, who know him and worked with him often call for his advice /services whenever they encounter any complex situation in their power generation plants.
However, he was equally concerned about the negative contribution of thermal power generation plants to the environment and ecology due to its large carbon foot print. He was constantly following up other green developments especially on renewable energy sector especially solar which has much bigger potential than that what it is today. He was equally pained and guilty for being part of putting so many thermal power plants in the country after observing the continuous deteriorating environmental and ecological status of the country especially in urban areas.
This venture he created to undo his wrong doings by providing value added and innovative services to conventional power generation sector to reduce their carbon foot print by analyzing/ improving their performance and efficiency and his main mission to develop an innovative techno-commercial model for rooftop solar which can be widely acceptable and herald new era in ‘Solarizing India’. India is still lagging far behind in rooftop solar development due to numerous problem and the most challenging one is non availability of total solution at one place i.e. commoditization of solar PV system.
Apart from his strong technical acumen, he is also a great skill trainer/ motivator and innovative Yoga practitioner/ trainer. He has been a regular trainer to new engineering graduates and expert level advanced training to the managers of various corporate houses. He has also presented his innovative ideas on various subject in many national level seminars organized/sponsored by Yoogma, chambers of Indian Industries and World Bank.
