Dr Hemanshu Bhatt, Dr Sunit Tyagi and Navashil Sharma were perhaps inspired by the movie Swades when they decided to return to India in 2005. Giving shape to their inspiration, in 2009 they started InSolare Energy, a solar-based engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) company. The three promoters left their high-paying jobs in the technology and semiconductor fields to be part of the solar revolution in India.
InSolare came into the limelight when it commissioned a 10 MW canal-top and a 5 MW canal-bank solar project on the Narmada canal for Sardar Sarovar Narmada Nigam Limited in 2017. However, this was not the first time that the company had executed a challenging assignment. In 2009 itself, InSolare had deployed a 5 MW ground-mounted solar project in Gujarat for Backbone Infrastructure, which was at that time one of the largest utility-scale solar projects with a single-axis tracker and thin-film solar modules to be set up in the country.
