No Solar Capacity Addition in April and May 2014 – MNRE

The first two months of the first Quarter of the financial year 2014-15 have been very quite. According to the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy(MNRE), only 130 MW of new grid-connected renewable energy projects were commissioned in India during April and May 2014. Incidentally, all of the capacity added was in the wind sector, whereas all other renewable energy sources, including solar, drew a blank. The total installed capacity of renewables stood at 31,833 MW as of 31 May 2014. May 31,2014

    so much opportunity is lying to be tapped in offgrid but solar vendors keep waiting for subsidies rather than provide rural customers with single vendor model to sell all services associated with offgrid solar systems and products. whole solar economy can be built around the solar model in rural sector of India to not only provide power but employment generation opportunites for women and youth in rural markets. In terms of urban areas netmetering is the answer for selling the rooftop solar system to residential consumers for lowering their monthly electricity bill even if the buyback rate is APPC.
