The Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE) has issued a set of guidelines to be followed by solar manufacturers for models of modules that will be utilized in government-owned projects and those set up for the sale of electricity to the government.
The issuance of these guidelines is the next step in a process that began in 2018 to ensure quality solar photovoltaic (PV) projects.
Dhruv Sharma of the Indian Solar Manufacturers Association (ISMA) commented on the MNRE notice saying, “The MNRE is concerned with standardization of cells and modules. This is a welcome move as the integrity of products is important. There are so many factories and companies that use sub-standard material to make cells and modules.
There have been many instances where the actual power generation has been lower than the projected by unacceptable margins. This will put a check on it all.” Read more
