India Is a Country with Untapped Opportunities for Solar Energy

India is a country with untapped opportunities for solar energy

India is considered a sunny country because receives solar energy for more than 300 days every year, but even so, the share of the solar power in the country’s energy mix is very low (only 2.8% at the end of 2016).

Another major issue in India is represented by the huge number of people that live without a source of electric power (not even fossil), so the demand for a clean and free energy source is more than welcome.

Luckily, there are several companies in India that are working hard to increase the country’s installed capacity of solar energy.

Rays Power Infra is one of the largest solar companies in India, and they develop, construct and service some of the largest solar power projects in the country.

The first solar power plants launched in India by Rays Power Infra were two solar parks in the states of Rajasthan and Telangana, in 2013.

Having such a large number of people that live without any form of energy, it is more than obvious that there is a huge demand for energy in the country.

In 2017, the first option is represented by renewable energy, and because India has perfect conditions for harnessing solar energy, the first step would be to build more solar power plants in the country that can serve the areas where the electrical grid is not an option.

This year (2017), India plans to surpass Japan and become the third largest solar market in the world.

Rays Power Infra has already commissioned in 2017 a number of six solar projects, and other three new solar projects will be commissioned in 2018 and 2019.

The company also plans to cover with solar panels every rooftop in India because the large potential for solar energy must be harnessed everywhere in the country.

This way, every household that will have a solar roof will be able to produce its own free and clean energy.

By increasing the installed capacity for solar power in the country, the environment will be protected much better, and the level of pollution will be
