sufficient to create the “Solar” movement needed for wider proliferation This has also led to spawning of low quality solar products taking advantage of increasing awareness but their shoddy performance is denting the consumer confidence slowing the down their adoptability and penetration of Solar products Solar microgrids are big opportunities for rural areas raising big hope for cost-effective generation at this smaller scale A solar microgrid typically comprises of a Solar panel array installed in a central location in a village The electricity generated in the day is stored in the solar batteries and is supplied to the subscribing customers in the evening/ night through electrical cables laid either over head or underground The customers pay for an initial installation costs which may also include the cost of CFL/LED lights provided and the usage is charged either as fixed charges where a fixed supply is provided for defined hours to all customers or through meter-based charging where electricity meters are installed and the customers pay as per their usage where both postpaid and prepaid models are implemented with microgrid enterprises preferring prepaid model due to erratic payment patterns in rural areas A typical microgrid of 5 KW serving 90-100 households will currently cost around Rs 5 Lakhs (including installation and wiring) requiring around Rs 10000 annually for maintenance and additional cost of around Rs 50000 for replacements costs (batteries electronic equipment etc) every 4-5 years So assuming 20 years lifecycle the total cost in present terms would be Rs 65-7 Lakhs The set-up will generate 40 units of electricity daily – around 12000 units annually (with 8 hrs of effective sunlight for 300 days in a year) We can assess the economics of this microgrid through two perspectives Firstly from a federal perspective these 12000 units would provide a total savings of Rs 18 Lakhs per annum assuming economic cost of grid supply to rural areas at around Rs 15 (including cost of generation and transmission T&D losses etc) This gives us a pay-back of 39 years on the micro-grid plant However the enterprise operating the microgrid has to charge a tariff rate equivalent to that for grid supply Considering the tariff of Rs 7 per unit (factoring in the likely increase in grid tariffs) the annual revenue from 12000 units would be Rs 84000 giving a payback of 83 years However if a subsidy is extended to these enterprises the payback period can be reduced At 50% subsidy on capital costs the payback period would be around 42 years The project will provide an internal rate of return (IRR) of 30-35% which is good enough for a start At 60% subsidy the payback period will reduce to 33 years and the IRR will be 35-40% The payback period will further drop and IRR will improve with better financial sops including subsidies soft loans tax holiday etc The question is why government should provide such high subsidy and financial support The answer lies in multiple benefits shared earlier – more supply for industrial and service sector lower crude import bill reduced health and environment support costs and better socio-economic development through education communication and e-governance Alongwith the financial support the government will have to also build the right environment for microgrid enterprises to smoothly setup their projects and operate them without much hassle The disbursal of subsidy access to soft loans and tax breaks should be uncomplicated and painless Requisite policies and guidelines should be released promptly and with minimal ambiguity on regulatory and governance Corporates should be encouraged to invest in microgrid ventures as part of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) mandate Promoting wider proliferation of more efficient LED lighting products will further enhance the impact of solar power generated Besides these microgrid enterprises can augment their profitability by leveraging their presence in rural areas to exploit other synergistic opportunities such as extending Solar power to telecom towers distribution and retailing of solar products like Solar water pumps Solar lights etc In last few years telecom towers have emerged as the second largest consumers of diesel consuming around 3 bn litres annually The key perpetrators are telecom towers in rural areas where to ensure network availability diesel generators are required to operate for almost half the day Despite special efforts by the telecom and tower companies to shift to renewable energy sources the progress have been slow due to strong resistance from interests involved in diesel pilferage which has become menacingly huge As the microgrid enterprises get entrenched in the rural social fabric hopefully they will be able to break this resistance gradually So there is a strong business case for promoting rapid proliferation of microgrids by building a strong ecosystem including financial regulatory manufacturing and trade practices and support from local administration and government bodies with both the central and state governments to play their respective roles particularly on the subsidy front where the burden will have to be shared by them For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related NewsBy: Express Web Desk |

has made several defining moments But one spell that always stands out is his 6 for 23 against England in the ICC World Cup (2003) Considering that the winner of the match would go on to qualify for the next round Nehra’s magical spell assumes even more significance Set for a tricky target of 251 England began amicably Nehra who had remained wicketless before the match gave India the momentum by dismissing skipper Naseer Hussain In the very next delivery he dismissed Alec Stewart After that he also went on to dismiss Michael Vaughan Paul Collingwood This tilted the match in India’s favour as half the English side was back in the hut Any chance of a recovery was dealt a hammer blow when Nehra came back to dismiss Craig White and then took the sixth wicket by scalping Ronnie Irani Deservedly Nehra was awarded the man of the match His figures of 6/23 still remain as the best bowling figures by an Indian bowler in World cup history Another interesting fact is that Nehra is the

parties “Had we not taken them into custody BJP supporters would have attacked them for repeated disruptions’’ a police official said District Collector Varma said that a group of people had repeatedly tried to disrupt the event and interrupted officials at various locations inside the village while the programme was being conducted Varma said he did not order the arrests and that the police action followed after he left the village Watch what else is making news “I did warn him (Gambhir) but the video appeared to have been shot as part of a conspiracy to provoke me into saying something drastic Otherwise why would I warn someone on camera’’ the collector said referring to the interview he was giving to a local journalist when Gambhir Singh intervened one more time Gambhir
