Solar-Rooftop power for Residential Commercial and Industrial Sectors

“Sun is our God, before we understand any technology we must understand ‘The Sun’, as it’s not the power it’s the Energy: continuous, long lasting, forever”.

-- Pragya Sharma, Adviser of IST.

Rooftop PV systems are one of the most attractive solution for Residential Commercial and Industrial Sectors.  There is a huge potential in each sectors and this potential should consider all possible areas & spaces that could be utilized, like the total potential for generation capacity of PV systems on all existing and planned.

NDMC identified 40 buildings and total potential estimated is 20mw. Thus, this is huge potential area and we should utilized this.

If you look for long run, then solar roof top is very good for individual house as well. You can install 3 KW or 5 KW or 10 KW System at your roof top. 3 KW system will cost appox 2.0 to 2.3 Lakh, it is one time investment and you can generate your own power for next 25 years. No electricity bill, no power cut and 100% clean & reliable source of energy. Installation time will be 30 to 40 days.

Solar PV panelThe New Delhi Municipal Council (NDMC) is working hard to earn the tag of ‘solar city’ for the New Delhi area of the national capital as it has framed a detailed plan for the rooftop solar energy generation.
The chairman of NDMC Jalaj Shrivastava has said that they have identified 40 buildings in the area, which fall under their jurisdiction for the installation of rooftop solar panels.
The buildings on which the roof top panels will be set up include NDMC schools, hospitals, offices, sub-stations, inquiry offices etc. An NDMC official said that they choose their own buildings for the pilot project as we did not require a ‘no objection certificate’ from any agency.

WB Govt plans world`s biggest solar power project in Purulia
June 25, 2014
The West Bengal government has placed a proposal to the Centre for setting up a 250MW solar power project near the Purulia Pumping Storage Project (PPSP) at Baghmundi for an estimated cost of Rs 1,700 crore.
This will be the world`s biggest solar power project if the state gets the nod from the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy, Government of India.
The state Power minister Manish Gupta spoke about the plan at a national seminar organized by Ashden India Renewable Energy Collective - a group of Indian Ashden award winners headed by solar power expert and former adviser to the state power department, S P Gon Chaudhuri. Mr. Gupta said discussions have taken place with central government officials on the proposed project. The Centre has agreed in principle, he said.
The new budget for 2014-15 will be the first of the recently elected government in India. The expectations are high, but the finance minister has to walk a tightrope to ensure fiscal prudence in an economy that has been handed over to him in a bad shape.
  • BRIDGE TO INDIA expects the government to increase the allocations to the MNRE
  • The government should think of ways to strategically support the growth of solar manufacturing
  • The possible reinstatement of accelerated depreciation for wind projects is expected to have a significant impact on the solar sector
The interim budget for 2014-15 presented by the outgoing government announced allocation of funds for setting up ultra-mega solar power projects but lowered the budgetary allocations to the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE) and did not extend the 10 year income tax holiday for new solar projects.
