If there’s one success story being written in India, it’s that of renewable energy. By the government’s own reckoning, despite India’s energy needs likely to double over the next seven years (going by the current rate of economic growth), the nation is likely to meet two-fifths of its electricity needs with renewable sources by 2030.
The expansion is a grid-tiled rooftop solar PV system, generating 750,000 kWh of electricity every year. The project has been sanctioned and approved by the Solar Energy Corporation of India (SECI), which has provided 30 percent subsidy to the project.
India’s massive effort towards renewable energy has resulted in considerable drop in solar price and the country now believes that the solar power is cheaper than coal without subsidy, US lawmakers have been told.
