Vallioor Solar Project

Tamil Nadu yet to warm up to rooftop solar scheme
State power utility Tangedco will establish floating solar power projects in the districts of Theni, Salem and Erode with a capacity of 250 MW and at an estimated cost of 1,125 crore.

Besides, the Kadaladi Ultra Mega Solar Photovoltaic Park Power Project, with a capacity of 500 MW, will be established at a cost of 2,350 crore

On power allocation to various States, he said the power generated from these two units was distributed in the following quantum: Tamil Nadu – 439 .02 mw (44 per cent), Karnataka – 179.13 mw (18 per cent), Andhra Pradesh -133.18 mw (13 per cent), Telangana -155.65 mw – (16 per cent), Kerala – 82.24 mw – (8 per cent) and Puducherry – 10.78 mw- (1 per cent).

Power generation in the state has been on the rise in tandem with increasing demand from consumers in both domestic and industrial sectors. As part of government efforts to reduce dependence on thermal power plants and to promote green energy, the Union Government had introduced the Grid Connected Rooftop and Small Solar Power Plants project.

In 2017-18, the total installations done in the district under the scheme was a mere 42KW. However, officials said that it is a four-fold increase from 10KW in 2016-17. The biggest installations in the district recently are 7KW unit at the Tamil Nadu Pollution Control Board office and 5KW units at the RTO office and the block development offices in Vallioor and Pappakudi respectively.

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.
