Rajasthan: Solar energy is now the preferred source of power 9.7.2018 DNA: Money
Solar energy has ticked off all the necessary boxes to become a favourite of the suppliers in search of an efficient source of power. Solar energy is the way forward towards clean energy in the state rather than wind energy given its low rate in the state.  In last few years, the rates of solar energy have come down drastically in comparison to wind energy. A record low solar tariff of Rs 2.44 per unit was achieved in Bhadla in the state in 2017 during the bidding carried out by solar energy corporation limited in 2017 for Bhadla Solar Park. A solar investor said that after various bidding rounds of  wind energy at the Centre it turned out to be about 10 per cent costlier than solar energy. Such is the prevailing situation in the state that not many new investments in wind energy sector are coming its way. “There is hardly any new investment and the cost of windmill is not going down significantly thus not making the power competitive as compared to the solar energy,” said a wind energy producer from the ...

New power lines might accelerate bustard extinction in Gujarat 8.7.2018 DNA: Money
The thrust towards green energy is having an environmental cost that few had foreseen. The power lines that connect windmills and solar power plants are turning out to be death traps for the critically endangered Great Indian Bustards (GIB) in Gujarat. In the last decade alone, power lines have claimed the lives of about 10-15 GIBs in the GIB-range states of India. If that wasn't enough, the GETCO substation at Bhachunda, where the company plans to put about 15 to 20 power lines, is another potential death trap, claim activists, adding that it is right in the middle of a bustard habitat. Devesh Gadhvi of The Corbett Foundation, an organisation that is working towards GIB conservation, said, "The windmills, by virtue of being green energy, do not require an Environment Impact Assessment (EIA) before being set up, especially outside forest areas. The same happens with the power lines as well.  This means that when such plants are set up in revenue areas, adjacent to the forest areas, which are actually ...
