India’s Solar Power Implementation
India is a country that not only holds many beautiful and sacred symbols and artifacts of its culture but also is home to 17.5 percent of the entire human population. That being said with a population of 1.3 billion people that is continuously increasing, all corners of the country from small businesses to the government and those who care for & preserve the Sabarimala Temple and the temple complex inside the Preyar Tiger Preserve are looking to solar power to power their businesses and communities. In fact, India is known to have the cheapest solar power and many companies worldwide bid to help the ongoing solar power infrastructure implementation and conversion.
Solar Power – India’s Lowest Priced Fuel Options
The Indian government is fully behind the implementation of solar power throughout the country. Working with international solar power contractors like Renewable Energy Services, Inc., and many other solar power companies, India is looking to convert as much of their power usage as possible to that of solar power. Because solar power has entered a new global era, we have seen falling solar prices and what was once an expensive eco-friendly option has now transformed into one of the most cost-efficient and environmentally friendly was to power communities, businesses, and residential structures. Because of this amazing power opportunity, India was once only able to power 85% of the population up to 2016, meaning over 200 million people were not connected to the country’s micro-grid, and had to find their own means of power.
With the government fully backing solar power conversion for the entire country, they continue to utilize micro-grids to help build the infrastructure slowly but surely.
What is A Micro-Grid?
A microgrid is a small version of a power grid that can be utilized to provide power to regions that have no central power grid. By utilizing microgrids with diesel generators you are able to power small commercial facilities, businesses, farms, villages, the temple complex where the Sabarimala Temple is located, and many more remote places. India is definitely on the map to be the country that relies mostly on solar power to provide residents with power sources. And that means the entire population and not the mere 85% that once was the norm. As more and more solar power contractors bid to help provide the growing solar infrastructure, the government still maintains that the cost of solar even with financing and installation contracts proves to be the best energy alternative when compared to any other competeing fossil fuel. Not to mention the fact that it is also an environmentally friendly option and will only help to aid in global warming and pollution of our precious Earth.
