Moser Baer plans solar power project in Rajasthan

Moser Baer Photo Voltaic has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Government of Rajasthan for setting up of a large solar power project in the state with an estimated generation capacity of one to five megawatt.

Jaipur: Moser Baer Photo Voltaic (MBPV), a wholly owned subsidiary of Moser Baer India, has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Government of Rajasthan for setting up of a large solar power project in the state with an estimated generation capacity of one to five megawatt.

The project entails an investment of around US $25 million (Rs 100 crore) at US $4.5 million per megawatt and will be the largest grid-connected solar farm in India.

As the SAARC region faces imbalances in energy generation capacities, with an increasing need to explore alternate and efficient energy sources, it offers a significant potential to Solar Photo Voltaic as an efficient energy option in the region.

MBPV CEO Ravi Khanna said that the company aims to redefine the paradigms of solar power generation through its world class manufacturing and multi technology capabilities and demonstrate a commercially viable, grid-connected PV energy system in India through this project.

He added that the project is a pioneering initiative in that direction and believed the SAARC region provides huge opportunity for such large sized projects.

Moser Baer focuses on strategic tie ups with some of the leading global Solar PV Companies and clean energy funds for setting up large sized solar farms across the SAARC region.

MBPV plans to implement a capacity of 500 MW by financial year '10 through a mix of technologies in the crystalline silicon, concentrator and thin film domain.

The company further informed that its photovoltalc equipment manufacturing capacities for crystalline silicon, concentrator and thin film technologies are coming up in an SEZ in Greater Noida.

Rajasthan has set targets to become self sufficient in power by 2008. Besides setting up new power projects in the state sector, the government is also promoting private investment in power generation.

The MoU was signed on November 30, 2007 at the ‘Resurgent Rajasthan' summit at Jaipur between MBPV and Rajasthan Renewable Energy Corporation (RREC).

The state already has an installed capacity of 5,500 MW of power and will add 4,500 MW by 2011-12 through state sector projects of 1,500 MW, private sector projects of 1,500 MW and central sector projects of 1,500 MW.

The state government also added that over 520 MW of non-conventional power is already being generated by private units in the state.

we want to establish a commercial solar power plant in kota,rajasthan,pl. guide me-its viability,profitability,govt. permissions ,etc.

Installation of individual solar plant is very costly, it is about $8.00 per peak watt. It means if we have 5.5KW daily consumption and we are living in Rajasthan or any place where solar insolation is 5.5 hours, than we require 1KW solar panel and its cost is $8000.00 or Rs.4.00lacs.
If central Govt. gives subsidy like Canadian, USA and Australlian Govt. than it will be possible for individual to install power plant.
Cost of one MWATT power plant is roughly $6.5M

dear sir
we are living in dausa dis.i would like to install domestic solar panel in my house.please tell me about domistic solar panel distributors or more information about it

I agree wht J.L.Wadhwa has said. I guess govt. of rajasthan should make Solar panels and water harvesting compulsory for all the new colonies in Rajasthan.

Dear Sir, We are living in Churu distt. This is part of the Thar desert region of Rajasthan. So we have no of tubewell. We are suffering from scarecity of electricity. So we want solar panel for cultivation. Minimum Requriment of 40 kva. Pls suggest or give the detail of solar panel. I am interested to set up a 1 Mega watt solar plant in Rajasthan. So please send me a business plan for solar plant and how much money is required to install the new technology. Thank you sir We are waiting for ur reply.

Dear Sir,

We are trader of solar panel we are providing service to some export house and some buyer of Europe. We want good quality solar panel for European market and which is also certified as per the European standard if you have this type of product then pls contact me or send us detail for solar panel with price list.
Thank you sir,
We are waiting for ur reply.

New colonies, specially in Rajasthan, where sunlight is in abundance, should have solar energy modules installed mandatorily on each hose rooftop, connected to an solar electrical grid. Each house would consume only a small portion of electricity and the surplus can be bought back by the Goverment for further distribution.

It is a very encouraging news that after so many years of planning and failure the first major grid connected commercial CPV project is going to see the light of the day in India. The main reason of delay is absence of proper feed in tariff for solar projects in India. The feed in tariff of MNRE will not help development of solar power as the hydro and wind projects installation cost/KW is lower and are happy with the present tariff of Rs 2.25 (base 1993) with escallation of 5% per year and also agrees to reduction in escallation as the cost of generation is much lower. So we have to treat the solar projects separately over the MNRE benefits like it is done in Germany, USA etc where the feed in tariff varies $0.50-$0.90 per unit resulting surge in development of solar projects in recent years.
Solar power is cleanest and will be the final source of power for the mankind. we should develop this source of power with higher feed in tariff till the cost installation comes down over the years : n c jana-094334 00655
