The solar power industry is booming, driven by global efforts to combat climate change and reduce dependency on fossil fuels. The increasing affordability of solar technology and government incentives have made solar power a viable option for businesses and homeowners alike. According to the International Energy Agency (IEA), solar power capacity increased by 22% in 2022 alone. This surge in demand presents a golden opportunity for companies involved in the solar energy sector. However, to capitalize on this growth, businesses must efficiently manage their operations, projects, and resources. This is where an ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) system specifically tailored for the solar industry comes into play.
