Access to solar power becomes easier with declining SPV prices
In Madhya Pradesh, the auctioned price of solar photovoltaic (SPV) power per kilowatt hour has reduced to Rs.2.97 from Rs.3. This is great news for future course of renewable energy. If we are to attain the national goal of installing 100 gigawatts by 2022, the country s solar capacity will have to be scaled up is the performance is to match with intent. We need massive citizen participation and introduce net-metering systems with a feed-in tariff to encourage consumer to use PV modules. Sunlight is a emission free source of energy. We need to make the best out of it.
