Solar industry in India is growing at an incredible rate. From current solar capacity (13 GW) to aggressive pipeline (14 GW under construction and 6 GW to be auctioned), and Government policies to make green energy a mainstream energy source is impressive, inspiring even. The industry growth is supposed to realize the vision of ‘energy reliance’, which is one of the few reasons behind India’s solar revolution. However, lack of quality inspection mechanisms (till now) and influx of imported modules have introduced the question of long term performance of the solar projects.
The rising tide of growth that Indian solar sector resembles has promised to shift the weight of poverty, unemployment and social-cultural asymmetrical growth from India’s shoulder, willing an energy rich future into reality. Quite decisively, Indian Government has devised plans for leveraging this opportunity.
