Ten solar power producers, including Jackson Ltd, Vikram Solar, Symphony Vyapar Pvt Ltd and Lexicon Vanijya Pvt Ltd have written to the ministry of new and renewable energy (MNRE) saying imposition of anti-dumping duty on solar imports will severely affect the fledgling Indian solar industry.

Producers and equipment manufacturers have been at loggerheads since the latter filed an anti-dumping case against China, the US, Taiwan and Malaysia last year for imported solar panels. Producers have called a halt to such measures till phase two of the national solar mission begins and new projects are commissioned.

This is the draft guidelines for setting up of 750 MW Grid Solar PV power projects with Viability Gap Funding (VGF) under Jawaharlal Nehru National Solar Mission (JNNSM), Phase-II, Batch-I.

The company's head office will decide on the location and exact investment required for the backward integration project

Bangalore-based electronics division (EDN) of Bharat Heavy Electricals Ltd (BHEL) has proposed to set up a backward integrated project for its solar photovoltaic panel business. The company has planned to set up an integrated manufacturing facility for ingots to wafers, cells and panels using crystalline photovoltaic technology.

Indian manufacturers of solar cells and modules would gain if the government imposes an anti-dumping duty, but it would also raise prices for project developers and eventually increase the price of

These Regulations shall be called the “Delhi Electricity Regulatory Commission (Terms & Conditions for Determination of Tariff for Grid-connected Solar Photo Voltaic Project) Regulations, 2013”. These Regulations shall extend to the whole of National Capital Territory of Delhi.

Photovoltaics is becoming increasingly inex­pensive. In contrast, the prices for electricity from conventional power plants are climb­ing. This is making the solar farm market segment progressively more lucrative for fi­nancially strong investors. Photovoltaics of­fers a profitable, long­term investment with comparatively low risk.

State-run BHEL plans to invest up to Rs 2,000 crore for setting up solar equipment manufacturing facility having a capacity of 600 MW.

BHEL, grappling with persisting headwinds in the power sector, is betting on business diversification spread across various areas including solar energy and defence sectors. "Initial investment could be around Rs 500-600 crore and then when we (can) expand it. (Overall investment) can go up to Rs 2,000 crore for a 600 MW capacity," BHEL Chairman and Managing Director B P Rao said.

Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE) has invited comments till December 15, 2012 on this draft of Jawaharlal Nehru National Solar Mission (JNNSM) Phase-II. This phase is targeting to bring the cumulative solar capacity to 10 GW by 2017

The objectives of the policy are: To encourage participation of Private Sector to set up Solar Power based projects in the State; To define the incentives and benefits to be provided to the participants of the Private Sector in clear terms; To build a favourable atmosphere for setting up Solar Power projects; and Lay down framework for policy im
