Amidst the time when the experts have started to throw in their contemplations regarding whether the Paris summit in December 2015 will “save the earth”, or will just end up as another Copenhagen, India has come up with a unique business opportunity that sees a target of setting up 100,000 MW of solar energy by 2020.

A senior government official stated that the rooftop solar projects offer a big business opportunity upto the tune of Rs. 4 lakh crore.

“Grid connected rooftop solar power is the most important sector as far as renewables are concerned. This 40,000 MW project requires an investment of up to Rs. 4 lakh crore and is a big business opportunity for all,” said Tarun Kapoor, joint secretary, ministry of new and renewable energy (MNRE), addressing a conference in the capital organized by The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI).

In regard to the system by which people who set up solar power panels on their rooftops can sell electricity back to the grid, he said that there are 20 state regulators who have issued connections whereas 17 states have issued policies for net metering.

Also an objective of achieving 100,000 MW from solar energy by 2020, 40,000 MW of which will come from rooftop solar power, has also been set by the government.

“Taking a systemic approach towards implementing this large and ambitious programme, ensuring it is a win-win for all stakeholders is critically important,” added Leena Srivastava, acting director-general of TERI.
