Solar Energy Report (FREE)

We have recently released our First FREE Solar Energy Report for Indian Industrial Plants.

The FREE Solar Energy Report titled - Why Indian Industrial Plants should opt for Photo Voltaic (PV) Solar (Download Link) takes a look at Indian Power Scenario, Indian Renewable Energy Scenario, Indian Industries - Power Outlook and a deep insight into Solar Energy i.e. Photo Voltaic Solar and the practical applications from an Industry viewpoint including a touch up on Viability aspects.

Primarily any Industrial Plant Manager would look to reduce cost while maintaining optimum production level through a consistent and quality power. This Solar Energy Report strengthens the view that an Industrial Plant should have an Ideal Power Mix or Portfolio to reduce its reliance on a single source of energy. By this report we do not intend to say that an entire Industrial Plant can run on Solar Energy - not practical and feasible in the near term. However adding PV Solar Power as part of the Power Mix would be an ideal solution as we believe Solar Energy can indeed be an answer to India's Power Problems.

We are offering our Consultancy Services in Solar Energy (Photo Voltaic) for  several Industrial Plants across India (majority of them leaders such as Reliance Group, Aditya Birla Group, Emami Group, Cement Plants, Chemical Plants etc.) and the findings have been quintessentially interesting. Every Industrial Plant that we audited has the potential to have a PV Solar Project installation of 500 kW to several MW for both rooftop and Ground-mounted systems. This was carried out as part of our Solar Energy Consultancy Package. The project are all viable and feasible under various subsidies and incentives offered by the Government under Jawaharlal Nehru National Solar Mission. Even in the absence of subsidies the project RoI is very much attractive due to rising grid power prices, inconsistent power supply, unreliable fuel supply etc. The findings of the Industrial Plants will be captured in our Next Report.

    1. Dear Sir,

      Thank you for writing in. The Cost of 500 kW Plant depends on several factors - Technology, Site Conditions, Balance of Plant, Project Type etc. Consecutively the cost of unit power rate will also vary.

      Tentatively the cost of generation from Solar can be anywhere between INR 4.0 to INR 6.0 and can be lesser considering the subsidies.

      To receive further details please drop a mail to solar@econserve.in

    2. Dear Sir,

      This is in continuation to our previous reply.

      It is our pleasure to kindly inform you that PV Solar prices have now stabilized. Considering amortization cost for a 500 kW project the actual cost of power generation from a Solar project has now come below INR 4 per kWh. This is considering a well-designed and well-engineered project.

      Moreover we now undertake PV Solar project execution on BOOT (Build-Own-Operate-Transfer) basis with 100% investment done by us. The tariff is generally competitive and is typically lesser than grid price.

      Kindly advise with your interest.

    1. Dear Mr. Garg,

      Thank you for your comment.

      The cost of the PV Solar power project depends on several factors such as technology used, project location, site conditions, project type etc. Please drop your phone number to our mail id - solar@econserve.in so that our expert could speak with you. Alternatively you may initiate the correspondence through mail on the aforementioned mail id.

      Regarding your query about a 250 kW load being run by a 300 kW project., it will require further analysis from our end. This will include knowing load-type, loading pattern, units consumption etc.

      Prima facie it appears that the requirement for 250 kW power will require a higher capacity installation.

      Best Regards,
      Enerco Energy Solutions LLP

  3. What is the range of capital cost required for 100Kw Solar plant- only Plant & Machinery cost.

    1. Dear Sir,

      Thank you for writing in.

      Cost of a PV Solar Project is dependent on several factors. In fact in PV there are various technologies mainly categorized into Crystalline and Thin-film. Each category has various other types.

      The cost of the project thus depends on technology used, site conditions, mounting type, cabling requirement etc. even though the size of the project (100 kWp) is known.

      It is imperative to first carry out a Site Assessment and understand the details of the project, through a pre-project report, before project execution. We offer such services, kindly advise on your interest.

      Enerco Energy Solutions LLP

  6. Good Report., thanks for mailing the same.

    What is the commercial viability of a typical Solar project?

    1. Thank you, Sir for your comments on our Solar Energy Report.

      The commercial viability of a PV Solar project depends on several factors including size of project, technology used, tariff (for grid-feed / SEB tariff for captive), rooftop / ground, location of the project, any subsidy applicable, tax benefits such as 80% Accelerated Depreciation on Solar projects etc.

      However typically following are the numbers for business decision-making :
      1. Payback : 2 to 4 years
      2. Project IRR : 18% and above
      3. Project CUF : 18% and above

      However we would like to reiterate that the above numbers are only approximate and the real numbers for each site need to be worked out. The numbers also consider the fact that project would be well-engineered.

    1. Dear Mr. Joe,

      Yes, we do have a brief analysis of a 1 MW PV Solar Power Project. This includes some critical numbers that are used for business decision making. This Solar Report makes some assumptions which have been spelt out., but can be a good starting point if you are looking for basic information on a Solar Power project.

      We will have the same mailed to you.

      Thank you for your comment.
