About Sipani Fibres Ltd

Mr. Rajkumar Sipani, the visionary chairman of Sipani Groups, took a bold step in 2018 by entrusting Orb Energy with a bold mission: to power one of his businesses, Sipani Fibres with rooftop solar. Sipani Fibres is one of India’s top manufacturers of PP/HDPE woven fabrics/sacks and leno textiles, serving customers across the country.

Orb Energy rose to the occasion, designing and installing a remarkable 2.5-megawatt rooftop solar system, marking a milestone in sustainable energy adoption at this time (2018). Since then, the Sipani Group has reached payback on their system (in just 3 years), and now has a profit from rooftop solar of ₹ 2.7 crores ($ 324k USD) every year! For the next 20+ years!!!

With this exceptional performance, Mr.Sipani again turned to Orb Energy when he wanted to power his other manufacturing units in Bangalore with solar. Orb’s latest installation for the Sipani Groups in Jigani, Bangalore is expected to also reach payback in just 3 years.

This success story serves as a beacon of hope and inspiration for industry owners across the country


“Orb Energy initially installed a 2.5 megawatt system for our polypropylene woven bags factory. Their turnkey solutions and expertise not only reduced our electricity bills, but also reduced our carbon foot print. We are now expanding our rooftop solar installations with Orb Energy.”
