Top 10 Solar Companies in India in 2021

India is one of the top ten countries in the world to utilize solar power with full enthusiasm. The country has been making rapid strides towards alternative sources of energy like wind and solar and has set up an aggressive renewable energy installation target of 175 GW by 2022.

 planning to install solar panel for home and business

India is one of the fastest growing economies in the world and rapid commer-cialization has led to an increased carbon footprint for the country. In order to make India more cleaner and greener, adopting alternative sources of power like wind and solar seems to be the only answer. According to a new report by Bridge to India, the country is set to march aggressively towards its solar target with expected installations of 14 GW in 2019. In order to achieve its goal, India has announced a set of policies promoting solar energy adoption in the country.

Solar Industry Highlights in 2021

rooftop solar industry target

India’s operational rooftop solar capacity reached 5,953 MW as on 30th June 2020. Only 1,140 MW capacity is estimated to have been added in the twelve-month period ending June 2020, down 19% YOY.

 

1. High Efficiency Solar Panels (450Watt to 500Watt)

high efficiency solar panel

Monocrystalline technology has already become mainstream due to higher efficiency and now there is talk of heterojunction cell technology becoming more popular with its ability to capture more wavelengths. Jinko Solar in China has already launched a 580 MW solar module. Panasonic HIT solar panels are already selling in India with panel efficiency of up to 19.7% and cell efficiency of up to 22.09%. RenewSys Solar recently launched DESERV Galactic Ultra series of mono-facial modules with 505W peak output and 20.17% efficiency, making it India’s first to reach 505Wp. Vikram Solar’s monocrystalline panels have touched efficiency of 20.56%.

2. Lithium Battery

subsidy on lithium battery manufacture

The storage costs are also expected to go down in the coming years, making rooftop solar more affordable in different countries. India will be prioritizing lithium battery manufacturing. The finance minister of India promised incentives to build large factories making solar cells, lithium battery storage, and electric vehicles. The government is offering financial incentives in the form of subsidies and duty cuts for indigenize lithium cell manufacturing, including a reduction of 50% in minimum alternate tax (MAT) and exemption from import and export duties.

Subsidy on Solar Panel Manufacturer & Lithium Battery

subsidy on solar panel manufacturing

India’s MNRE recently announced production-linked incentives for solar panel and lithium battery manufacturing companies. The subsidy will be available to Indian as well as foreign companies manufacturing on the Indian soil. The Indian government plans to offer Rs 4,500 crore for solar modules and Rs 18,100 crore for batteries. It is also looking to impose a custom duty on solar cells as well as solar modules imported from China.

 

Production Capacity - In order to support domestic manufacturing, India has approved a PLI (production linked incentive) scheme for battery manufacturing and solar photovoltaic cells in India. The government will be working to triple the manufacturing capacity setting up manufacturing capacity in India.

solar industry trends

 

Cabinet approves Phase-II of Grid Connected Rooftop Solar Programme for achieving cumulative capacity of 40,000 MW from Rooftop Solar Projects by the year 2022. In this regard, central financial assistance for the residential sector will be 40% for RTS systems up to 3 kW capacity and 20% for RTS systems with 3 kW- 10 kW capacities. For group housing societies, it will be 20% for RTS plants for supply of power for common areas. No central financial assistance will be available for institutional, educational, social, commercial, government establishments.

 

A number of measures taken to popularise Rooftop Solar Power System. These include providing CFA, persuade states to notify the net/gross metering regulations, initiate DG S&D rate contract and Suryamitra program, availability of concessional loans for disbursal of loans to industrial and commercial sectors etc.

 

Kusum Scheme to promote use of solar energy among farmers. The scheme aims to increase solar installations by 25,750 MW by 2022, with total financial assistance of more than INR 34,000 crores. The scheme calls for installation of 17.5 lakh solar-powered agricultural pumps, 10,000 MW of decentralized ground-mounted grid-connected renewable power plants, and solarisation of 10 lakh grid connected solar-powered agricultural pumps.

 

Solar Panels on Rooftop of Trains. Railways have taken decision to provide solar panel on rooftop of general coaches of two number of day running intercity trains in Northern and Southern Railway and 50% Narrow Gauge coaches plying on Pathankot-Joginder Nagar route in Kangra Valley section and Kalka-Shimla section of Northern Railway for conducting extended trials for one year in all weather conditions.

        All these companies will help India achieve its solar dream. The cost of solar power generation in India is expected to decline to as low as Rs 1.9 per unit by 2030, according to TERI. Further costs should also continue to decline with technology advancements, with cost of wind and solar projected to be between Rs 2.3-2.6 per kWh and Rs 1.9-2.3 per kWh, respectively. The cost of storage is also expected to decline by nearly 70%. All these future trends will establish solar industry as a mainstay industry in India in the near future.
