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 ...

'Solar farming' raises profits for Dhundi village farmers 9.7.2018 DNA: Money
While the state might have recently launched the Suryashakti Kisan Yojana (SKY) for farmers to generate solar power, nine farmers from Dhundi village of Kheda district have been practicing solar farming ever since they launched Dhundi Solar Energy Producers' Cooperative Society around two years ago. The village, as a result, became an example for energy minister, Saurabh Patel, who visited the village before launching SKY. "The village had implemented the scheme almost two years ago. Before announcing the scheme, I visited the village to meet these farmers," said Patel. In May 2016, nine farmers became solar entrepreneurs and launched DSEPCS, which transformed their lives. "We used to spend Rs 25,000 a year on the diesel-run pump to fetch water for farms. After installing the solar grid panels in the farms, we are earning Rs 65,000 a year through clean energy while also saving money," Pravin parmar, secretary of DSEPCS. DSEPCS was a pilot project created as part of a field research by the International ...
