Co-founder at The Solar Labs
Ankush is an IIT Mandi graduate from Computer Science.
The Solar Labs develop software to help solar firms understand for a roof how much solar can be installed and then generate an engineering design that maximizes solar energy generation for that site.
Its AI takes cuts engineering time while giving higher energy output for rooftop solar system design.
The Solar Labs is supported by iCreate, IIT Mandi Catalyst, and NASSCOM 10k Startups.
