Tirunelveli Solar Project

1 MW solar power plant set up at Rs 5 crore dedicated to MS University
The 1 MW (megawatt) power solar power plant was dedicated to the Manonmaniam Sundaranar University by information and publicity minister Kadambur C Raju in the presence of adi dravida welfare minister V M Rajalakshmi and Tirunelveli MP Vijila Sathyananth on Friday evening.

Funded under the Rashtriya Uchchatar Shiksha Abhiyan – ministry of human resource development (RUSA – MHRD) a total of 3,080 solar panels were installed on 3.7 acres of the total of 543 acres university premises at Abishekapatti on the Tirunelveli to Tenkasi highway. Electricity generated will be connected to the Tangedco grid.

While the varsity’s requirement is 750 KW, the remaining 250 KW will be sold to Tangedco. Outgoing vice-chancellor K Baskar said that they expect the solar plant to make optimum use of the annual nine-month sunshine period to generate 15 lakh units annually and will meet the futuristic needs of the varsity over the next few years.

It may be recalled that foundation stone for the project was laid by Tamil Nadu governor Banwarilal Purohit in December 2017. Stating that the installation of the panels and other installation work was completed in about three months, Baskar said that getting approvals took more than six months.

Tamil Nadu solar policy sets tall 9,000 MW target

Tamil Nadu government on Monday unveiled a new solar energy policy, which targets have 9,000MW of installed solar energy capacity in the state by 2023. While the state had around 2,200MW of solar energy installed capacity till 2018 end, it needs to add 6,800MW of additional capacity in the sector over the next four years.

Interestingly, about 40% of the additional capacity should come from the consumer (rooftop solar systems) category. This demands increased focus of the departments concerned in the state, since the past push has been for large installations. Further, while the state, on an average, had added just about 400MW of new capacity per year in the last five years, its capacity addition has to go up manifold to achieve the target

The Tamil Nadu Solar Energy Policy 2019 intends to create a framework that enables an accelerated development of solar energy in the state, which is the most urbanized and industrial in India. As per the Paris Climate Change Agreement, India has to add 100GW solar capacity by 2022.

Solar energy development will provide green jobs to a significant number of the state’s workforce and solar energy development will become available, accessible and affordable to all citizens of Tamil Nadu, with the sector expected to significantly contribute to reducing carbon and water footprint of the state, the state government said as its vision for the new policy.
