New Rundown, New Solar Energy Information!!
TSRTC saves big on 5MW solar installation.
Looking to cut down on electricity costs, the Telangana State Road Transport Corporation (TSRTC) made the switch to renewables by installing approximately 5 MW of solar PV systems. The TSRTC has estimated to save around 3.9 Cr per annum since making the switch.
Upon installing solar, the officials have stated to pay Rs. 4.80 per kWh of consumption which has made the difference. According to TSRTC, they have set up 95 depots with rooftop solar installation on top of bus depots like Mahatma Gandhi, Jubilee, Kukatpally, Kacheguda and many more. The 5MW solar pv system is estimated to generate around 65 lakh to 75 lakh kWh per annum.

Here is a rundown of all the weekly solar energy information. Keep following this space to know weekly solar opportunities.

  1. Madhya Pradesh DISCOMs plan to buy surplus power from farmers with solar installation.

In order to encourage solar installation in Madhya Pradesh, the west DISCOMs have encouraged farmers to install solar PVsystems for irrigation and an opportunity to earn. The Madhya Pradesh west DISCOM plans to target 20000 farmers of Malwa-Nimar region under this project.

Post the solar installation, the DISCOMs plan to buy surplus energy generated by the farmers through net metering.

We all know that education plays a key role in developing the economy of the country. Since independence, India has actively encouraged educational programs to boost the literacy rate of the country. However, with the demand for education rising, many institutes are looking for alternatives to reduce maintenance costs to keep fees as low as possible to keep encouraging participation. Another issue faced by the educational sectors in rural areas is inconsistent power. In this article, we will discuss, how solar EPC solutions are helping the educational sector have consistent and economical power.

Following up on our previous rundown. Here is a quick recap to what happened this week.

  • Indian railways commits to generate 1000 MW by the coming year and 5GW by 2030
    Post the 2020 budget, Indian railways highlighted their vision of installing ground mounted solar on railway occupied land alongside railways tracks. The Indian railways have targeted to generate 1000 MW by 2021.
    This vision was stressed upon to reduce railway costs in the future and become self-sufficient by 2030. Also, with the availability of 50,000 hectare land pool, Indian railways have the potential to generate 10 GW of solar electricity.

Introducing our new section called the “Weekly Rundown”. Thisnew section is to share trending solar information.

  1. India ranks first among 104 emerging markets in clean energy investment.

A recent survey conducted by BloombergNEF evaluated the ability of emerging markets to attract and ease investment process for solar power, wind, hydro, biomass and other clean energy sources while working towards a sustainable economy. The study shows India holding the largest and most competitive auctions for renewable energy power-delivery contracts. It resulted in India procuring nearly equivalent to 19GW in 2018 alone.

Followed by India, countries like Chile, Brazil, China, and Kenya are listed among the top five countries. India has progressed from second in 2018 to first because of their aggressive policy framework and solar capacity expansion.

Followed by the engagement we received on our article “innovative solar applications”, we are following it up with another article to highlight some of the innovations made in the solar industry. While the previous article highlighted applications that helped reduce carbon emissions and provide reliable power to several areas with solar, this article aims to encourage certain solar inventions that are resolving real-life issues. 

As mentioned before, a solar installation helps fight the impacts of climate change and reduce carbon emissions. While most solar projects are commissioned for direct financial and environmental benefits, there are multiple solar projects set around the globe that are helping communities develop economic sustainably and provide basic amenities. Below is some solar energy information on projects that have resolved socio-economic issues in regions across the world.

With prominent issues like global warming and the increase in the extinction of species, humanity is moving towards finding alternatives for power that don’t harm the environment. While there are multiple options, including wind and hydropower, solar energy has by far proven to be the fastest-growing alternative energy source.

That being said, more and more people are opting to install solar panels in their household. If you, too, are considering installing solar panels, this article will provide all the relevant information required to help you choose the perfect solution that suits your requirements.

Renew Power In Transportation

With India pledging to reduce their carbon footprint by 30-35% by 2030 in comparison to 2005, government bodies have taken multiple initiatives to encourage the use of renewable energy like solar. India being the cheapest solar producer in the world, there is no doubt that the opportunities to implement solar in multiple applications are endless. Since India has already set up projects up to 30GW to reduce its dependency on coal-powered energy, there is still scope to widen the use of solar in India.

Depreciating solar prices

Once considered to be expensive to install globally, India is now encouraging ground-mounted and rooftop solar installation by slashing prices for individuals to switch to solar. Between the years 2010 and 2018, solar installation costs in India have dropped by 80%. With deflating prices, many industrial manufacturing companies have understood that it is cheaper to buy solar than to buy grid electricity generated through coal. In this article, we will analyze the factors involved in the depreciating costs of Solar PV Systems.

solar energy to fight climate change

We all know that climate change is real and is getting worse every year. With weather conditions getting irregular and extreme every year, climate change is more evident than ever. Understanding the seriousness of the issue, the majority of the population has now come forward to create an impact and act against global warming and climate change. Many individuals, government bodies, and organizations have come forward to develop a sustainable future by either supporting a cause or initiating sustainability projects. However, with more than ten environmental hazards happening every year, we need to work on developing a sustainable future faster than ever. With advanced technology and resources, various alternatives and measures are available to reduce the impacts of climate change.
