India’s Solar Energy

Indian solar power or solar power in India is a rapidly growing industry and ranks among the world’s top three nations in solar energy production. The country’s solar installed capacity was 30.071 GW as of July 31, 2019.

India has the lowest capital cost per megawatt (MW) to install the solar power plants, which makes the country the cheapest producer of solar power. The Indian government has set the target of 100 GW capacity for 2022, and so far it has reached 30% of that target.

One of the tropical countries in the world, India receives solar radiation of almost 3,000 hours of sunshine throughout the year which is equivalent to more than 5,000 trillion kWh. The main reason why the country is an ideal place to generate electricity from solar energy. Some states in India that have a great potential for tapping solar energy due to their location include Orissa, Andhra, Bihar, Pradesh, Haryana, Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Gujarat, Maharashtra, West Bengal and Punjab.

However, India as a rapidly growing economy with almost more than 1 billion population is also facing a large amount of energy demand. When it comes to electricity production and consumption, India stands on the fifth spot worldwide. As the production of electricity continues expanding over the years the population of the country is also expanding continuously, the reason why energy supply must be prioritized to increase the inability to match the country’s needs and demands. Until now there is still more than 72 percent of the population living in villages and half of the villages live in a home without a supply of electricity.

Almost 53 percent of the power being produced in the country is coming from coal however, it was predicted that the coal reserves of the country won’t last beyond the year 2040 to 2050. With this, India focused its interest more on renewable energy, energy efficiency and power conservation. To meet this rising demand, they think solar energy is the best form of energy to generate in order to fulfill the country’s energy needs and also served as the bridge of the demand-supply energy gap.

Solar power in India is considered as one of the fast-growing solar industry worldwide. In fact, India ranks among the world’s top three nations in terms of solar energy production. As of August 2019, the country managed to achieve a solar installed capacity of 30.709 GW.

Furthermore, India has the lowest capital cost per megawatt (MW) to install solar power plants all over the globe, the reason why the country is considered the cheapest producer of solar power. The Indian government already reached the 30 percent target of the planned 100 GW capacity target for 2022 which was achieved four years ahead of the scheduled. This 100 GW solar capacity includes 40 GW from rooftop solar along with this a 100 billion US dollar target investment. The rooftop solar power accounts for 2.1 GW wherein almost 70 percent of it is commercial or industrial solar power. As of now, India has established almost 42 solar parks for the promoters of solar plants.

India was able to expand its solar generation capacity by 8 times, from only 2,650 MW in May 2014 to over 20 GW as of January 2018. In the year 2015 to 2016, India managed to add a solar capacity of 3 GW,  another 5 GW from 2016 to 2017 while over 10 GW was added in its solar capacity by the year 2017 to 2018 with the average current price of its solar electricity dropping to 18 percent below the coal-fired’s average price.

Moreover, India is also developing an off-grid solar power for local energy needs aside from its large-scale grid-connected solar photovoltaic (PV) initiative. Solar products have significantly helped Indians to meet their rural needs and at the end of the year 2015, less than one million solar lanterns were sold in the country that reduced the need for kerosene. In the same year, there were 118,700 solar home lighting systems installed while the national program provided 46,655 solar street lighting installations. In addition to that, almost 1.4 million solar cookers were also distributed in India.

Solar Tracker

Solar Tracker

When designing and installing a solar power system for your property, you have several unique ways to choose. But if you prefer to have a ground-mounted solar panel installation, it would be better to consider a solar tracking system so you can get the maximum amount of sunlight to power your house. For today’s article, we will discuss what a solar tracker is, its type, how this tracking system works, and is it ideal for your solar project.

What are Solar Trackers?

A solar tracker is a device use to direct solar PV modules toward the sun to emit a maximum amount of sunlight. Generally, these solar devices automatically change their orientation throughout the day to follow the sun’s path across the to maximize solar energy capture. Solar trackers are usually used with solar panel systems, particularly ground-mounted solar panels and other large-capacity and free-standing solar power installations like solar farms. 

Through this device, the PV panels can directly follow the sun’s pathway to generate more solar energy, powering your entire commercial and industrial property. It is not common in most small solar projects like in the residential areas since it entails a high price tag, which is not that ideal for homeowners.  

Types of Solar Tracker

Solar trackers are usually categorized based on which direction they move. A solar tracker can be either Single-axis solar tracker or Dual axis solar tracker.

  • Single-axis solar tracker 

Single-axis trackers follow the sun’s orientation, moving from east to west. They also have different types, such as horizontal, vertical, tilted, and polar aligned, which move as the names suggest. These solar trackers are typically used in large utility-scale solar projects. A single-axis tracker can increase solar power production between 25% to 35%. 

  • Dual-axis solar tracker 

Dual-axis solar tracker does not only moves from east to west but also follows the sun’s movement in the north and south direction. Usually, these solar trackers constantly face the sun and can move in two different directions, namely tip-tilt and azimuth altitude. They are more common among residential and small commercial properties that have limited ground space. 

How Does Solar Tracker Works?

A solar tracking system maximizes your solar panel system’s power production by tracking and moving the PV panels to follow the sun’s orientation throughout the day. They usually optimize the angle at which your solar panels receive solar energy. 

Typically, a solar tracking device is connected to the racking system of the solar panels. From there, it allows the solar PV panels to move along with the movement of the sun. Generally, the solar tracking system movements are dependent on what type of solar tracking equipment is used.

How Much Does a Solar Tracker Cost? 

Solar trackers can greatly increase the cost of a photovoltaic solar installation. Solar tracker costs depend on many factors like its type, solar mounting type, and the number of panels. To give you an estimate the solar tracking equipment can cost around $500 per panel to more than $1,000 per panel. 

Is Solar Tracker Worth your Investment?

In most cases, the solar tracker device is not worth additional investment for your solar projects, particularly for small solar projects like residential ones. Although they help in generating more solar power, their cost can adversely add to the final cost of your solar panels. Solar trackers only become valuable when you have a large utility-scale but have very limited space to install a lot of solar panels. But if you have enough space for additional solar panels, then a solar tracker is not that advisable to have.
