Feasibility of Utility and Rooftop Scale PV Plants in India
In the recent years utility scale power plants have seen a major boost in India. India currently boasts close to 13 GW of power from utility scale solar energy plants. The western states of India are blessed with adequate solar radiation compared to the other states. Hence, such states form a prime spot for installing large scale solar power plants or utility scale solar power plants. With governments push to set up atleast 50 solar park of (minimum) capacity of 500 MW, utility scaled solar power plants shall be set up within all the states in India. These plants can promptly fulfil Renewable Purchase Obligation (RPO) of the utilities while powering the grid with clean and green energy. Further this shall also enable the country to meet its target of 60 GW by 2022.
