Solar Energy Proposition in India

Solar Energy Proposition in India

  • India is blessed with Solar energy
  • Most parts of the country receive very good solar irradiation-especially in states such as Rajasthan, Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh, Punjab, Harayana, Tamil Nadu etc
  • There after Gujarat is the only State with highest irradiation and available potential
  • According to the national action plan on climate change,” if India were to convert 1% of the 5,000 trillion kilowatt-hour of solar energy that it receives in a year into energy, the country would have enough to meet its energy needs, which are now a growing concern”
  • Economic Value :
    • Mitigates peak energy costs, the energy bills are reduced drastically
    • Obviates the need to build as much additional generation and transmission capacity
  • Geographical Location :
    • India receives adequate Solar radiation for 300 days , amounting to 3000 hours of sunshine
    • Almost all of the regions receive 4-7 KWh of solar radiation per sq meters
