Engineering Post during an exclusive interview with Mr. Naveed Karar, Director AE Power got to know about the journey of the company and its directors. AE Power started its journey as a trading company dealing in industrial semiconductors and supplying the industrial units in the area. The company kept dealing solely with electronic components till 2012. Then in 2012 AE Power diversified its product range by adding solar products in its portfolio including PV panels, Inverters, batteries etc. “We recognized the huge potential of Solar power at that time and decided to add it to the portfolio of our company as it would be the next big thing in the future,”.
AE Power is being managed by three partners namely Mr. Rana Abbas, Mr. Ali Rafique and Mr. Naveed Karar. This group of the visionary businessmen saw the potential for growth in solar power generation and took the risk of stepping in as early as 2012. AE Power deals with Jinko Solar, Canadian Solar, Pylontech Lithium Ion Batteries, Ritar Dry Batteries and Solis On Grid & Hybrid Inverters.

The most significant problem faced by the consumers is the B-grade panels available in the market and layman cannot distinguish between an A grade and a B grade panel, which results in people falling for low quality materials. To save the consumers from the low quality products, authorized dealers like AE Power are available in the market who can procure the products through proper channels and are authorized dealers of the company offering quality products to the consumers. While commenting in this Mr. Naveed Karar said, “The proper high quality panels can only be arranged through proper channels. People should only deal with company’s authorized dealers to make sure they are getting all original products,”
