Maharashtra government bats for solar projects on large dams 12.7.2018 DNA: Wide Angle
In a major push for the renewable energy sector and to overcome resistance to the acquisition of private land for infrastructure projects, the state government has set the ball rolling for floating solar power projects on large dams. This will see solar panels being installed on the Ujani dam, followed by sites like the Jaikwadi and Koyna reservoirs. A senior official from the Maharashtra energy department said the Maharashtra State Electricity Distribution Company Limited (MahaVitaran) had floated expressions of interest (EoI) for a 1,000 MW floating solar power project at Ujani dam. The project will be awarded through the tariff-based competitive bidding method, where the bidder quoting the lowest tariff is selected. "After Ujani, we are planning to take up work at the Koyna dam in Satara district and the Jaikwadi dam in Aurangabad," he added. At the Ujani dam, which is one of the largest in Maharashtra, and a crucial water supply and irrigation source for Solapur district, the project will cover 2,000 ...

Rajasthan: PHDCCI tie-up with rating agency to help MSMEs 12.7.2018 DNA: Wide Angle
The policy and industry needs should match and in this context the industrial chambers have to play a crucial role. In this context, it is, therefore, only appropriate that the PHD chamber has set up its office in Jaipur. This was stated by Vinod Zutshi, former secretary with the ministry of tourism, Government of India. Zutshi has stepped into the new role of special advisor to PHDCCI, Rajasthan.  He was speaking on the occasion of formal launch of the PHDCCI Rajasthan State Chapter in Jaipur. Zutshi said that the strength of Rajasthan is its heritage which is also the strength of tourism in the state. However, other sources of tourism must also be tapped since only one source can get saturated. He added that the solar power also happens to be one of the key strengths of the state. Solar thermal potential is highest in Rajasthan, however, it still remains largely untapped. This medium should be focused upon, he added.  Additional chief secretary industries and chairperson RICCO, Rajeeva Swaroop said ...

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 ...

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 ...
