Why Solar Energy?

There is a huge gap in demand and supply ratio, where demand has surpassed the present supply capacity. Further concern of Global Warming have prompted world community to search for new, safe and long lasting source of energy. SUN is an eternal source of energy and would last for millions of years. The solar radiations reaching earth can be converted to electrical energy and thus contribute in meeting some part of the estimated power need. Nankharia Energy understands every individual customer's need and accordingly give the best to its customers.

Potential of Solar Energy

Gujarat unveiled plan for $2.4bn Indian solar park: India's Gujarat state plans to invest more than 105 billion rupees ($2.3bn) in a solar park which will provide the necessary infrastructure for 500 MW of solar power, it was announced in the month of December 2010 Indian conglomerate Tata has stepped up its push into the country's fast-expanding solar energy market, inking a power purchase agreement (PPA) with state-run power distributor Gujarat Urja Vikas Nigram (GUVNL) for the construction of a 25MW solar PV plant in the Gujarat region.

 

“In this (India’s) strategy, the sun occupies center stage, as it should, being literally the original source of all energy. We’ll pool all pull all our scientific, technical, and managerial talents, with financial resources, to develop solar energy as a source of abundant energy to power our economy and to transform the lives of our people. Our success in this endeavor will change the face of India” --India’s Prime Minister, Dr. Manmohan Singh, releasing the National Action plan on climate change in 2008

India alone will require more than 90000MW power by year 2030.

 

Specific drivers for PV in India include the country’s rapidly rising primary energy & Electricity needs, the persistent energy deficit situation, India’s over dependence on coal for electricity generation and on oil / gas imports amounting to 7% of GDP. There is an enormous potential for off – grid PV deployment, in India, based on real needs and benefits in the areas of rural lighting and electrification, for power irrigation pump, back-up power generation for the expanding network of cellular towers across the country, captive power generation, urban applications and highway lighting.

Current Sources of Electricity Generation in India

India’s current electricity generation is overwhelmingly dependent on coal based thermal power generation. The other major sources of electricity generation are natural gas & non-hydroelectric renewable sources. The share of renewable energy sources in India’s electricity generation mix is higher than the world average of about 5%.
