New 116 kW solar off-grid system will power the old Tilonia campus of the Barefoot College – working in various fields, including women empowerment, for the advance of rural communities through solar power.
India’s solar sector witnessed a huge growth in 2017. The country is close to 20 GW cumulative solar installation at the end of January 2018. Bridge to India has released several charts comparing renewable installations, tariff rates, and upcoming projects. The data shows India installed 8.5 GW utility-scale and 1.4 GW rooftop solar in 2017.
The Solar Energy Corporation of India has postponed the 2 GW PV project tender until further notice. The company has also extended the deadline for expression of interest for setting up the solar manufacturing plant in India until January 29.
India has installed total 1,861 MW rooftop PV as of September 2017 as the state of Maharashtra overtakes Tamil Nadu to become largest for rooftop solar, as per latest report by Bridge to India. Analysts have revised India’s rooftop projection to 10.8 GW by 2021.
Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s (MIT) study of solar pump technology used in India assesses technical performance and explores innovative business cases to increase user adoption. The study also helps farmers to choose the right size of the pump according to their requirement or size of fields.
The expansion was of the 1 MW rooftop solar plant at the Maharshi Markandeshwar Engineering college in Mullana, Haryana.
The German-based analyst and polysilicon specialist believes that newly installed solar PV capacity will hit 95 GW in 2017 and could hit 100 GW. Polysilicon spot prices set to fall by end of year.
The International Energy Agency’s Renewables 2017 report finds that solar PV capacity grew 50% last year, underpinning a 12% increase in this year’s renewables forecast and prompting the IEA to forecast 1,000 GW of clean energy by 2022.
The company has further procured 2.8 MW of rooftop solar projects in Uttar Pradesh, which is expected to be commissioned by January 2018.
