Government Initiatives For Solar Energy
Government Initiatives: The prospects of solar energy are looking bright. Government around the world have at last begun to recognize the enormous potential of this clean, inexhaustible source of energy and started implementing policies to encourage its development and deployment on a very large scale. India itself is upgrading its solar power at an alarming rate since 2016; country’s solar grid had a cumulative capacity of 8,626 MW. As the bird flies, two and half million solar modules swimming in more than 2500 acres of land with 8500 pairs of hand at work during the peak of the project in Tamilnadu.
Putting up an ambitious display of the finest, solar technology in South India while racing towards the tight deadline even when Mother Nature decides to throw in a few surprises, the project team would try not to let anything eclipse their progress. Aiming to make one of The World’s Largest Solar Power Plant in a single location in an unassuming part of southern India 648 MW of clean, green electricity will soon be generated and exported to the south Indian state of Tamilnadu. And putting this massive solar power plant together on time is a team of dedicated and energetic engineers, contractors and skilled specialists.
Bright and fiery, a mighty generous our glorious sun has always been radiating its laden beauty. But never before has its power been harnessed the way it has been in the 21st century. And now more than ever with the pleading fossils worldwide, the sun takes center stage. India is one of the fastest growing economies and energy nowadays, huge demand for energy has led to the vast utilization of natural resources. Energy from the sun is free and nowadays it’s powering airports, kitchens, and planes that are going to be the future.
Our country is taking the long and fast strides towards a national goal and becoming the world’s leader using solar power generation by 2022. It will reduce emissions by 33 to 35% of 2005 levels and produce 40% of our power from fossil fuels. Solar products increasingly helped to meet rural needs since over 30,000 solar powered water pumps for agriculture and drinking water had been installed and a cumulative sum of fewer than 1 million solar lanterns had been sold in the country reducing the need of expensive kerosene. In addition, solar street lighting installations were provided under a national program along with the distribution of over a million of solar cookers in India.
India is ranked number one in solar electricity production per watt installed, with its first solar power project, of capacity 5MW, being registered under the clean development mechanism. Aimed at householders keen to install solar energy systems in their own homes, it starts with explanations of the principles underlying the use of solar energy in non-technical language with admirable clarity. Householders will, of course, want to know how long it will take to recoup the capital investment in a solar installation through savings in energy bills. They will also need to be aware of legislation that could affect your solar installation.
In short, the householders know more about how solar energy can reduce their home energy bills and cut down their carbon footprint.
