JLANKA Marks Decade in Solar Electricity


JLANKA Technologies, which claims to be “Sri Lanka’s foremost innovators of energy sourcing solutions” marked its tenth anniversary this month, celebrating its achievements over the last decade.

“We are thrilled to be celebrating 10 years in business, having built a repute as an industry-transforming company that challenges convention,” stated Mrs. G. Jayasoma, Operations Director at JLANKA.

“The company’s success is powered by our passionate team of engineers, technical experts, business analysts, sales and after-sales, marketing and customer care professionals who share JLANKA’s vision for sustainable energy.

Our success today is a result of their commitment to make a lasting impact, and we remain committed to continue our work into the next few decades.”

JLANKA was established in 2011 by Dr. Mayura Jayasoma with a long-term vision to guide the country towards 100% energy independence through more efficient, greener and economical access to power.

The company has stayed true to this vision, rapidly evolving to provide energy solutions for residential, commercial and utility scale projects.

Partnerships with global solar giants such as SolarEdge Technologies and TrinaSolar Limited ensure benchmarking on par with global standards and uncompromised quality of all JLANKA solar solutions, a company news release said.

“By 2016, JLANKA was well established and equipped with both experience and expertise to tackle the sudden surge for demand in solar with the launch of Soorya Bala Sangramaya – a community based power generation project by the Ministry of Power and Renewable Energy with an ambitious short term goal to add 200MW to the national grid, a challenge the JLANKA team was ready to meet.

“Grouped under System Maintenance Units (SMUs) to cover geographical areas around the country, The JLANKA team is spread across Sri Lanka from Colombo to Kandy and from Galle to Anuradhapura.

This easy accessibility from any part of the island enables clients to engage with JLANKA as a single point-of-contact for engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) operations for solar projects.

JLANKA has thereby cemented its position as the country’s leading EPC subcontractor for installations ranging from single rooftops to utility scale solar systems falling under Soorya Bala Sangramaya,” the release said.

“Now, with the advent of solar, JLANKA has strengthened their capacity and mastered renewable power installation to service the Sri Lankan residential, commercial and utility sectors as per demand.

During the past decade, JLANKA has installed a total solar capacity of 43 Mega Watt across the island and successfully completed over 4,750 projects including some of the largest solar installations for private, public and non-profit organizations across the country.

JLANKA has thus far facilitated the harvesting of a staggering 140,000 Mega Watt Hours of electricity in Sri Lanka, while saving 28,534 tons of CO2 emissions annually and planting 295,697 trees as part of their commitment to offset greenhouse gases.”

The company said it was targeting a milestone of transforming 500,000 residences to sustainable solar homes by 2025.
