The authorities will quickly improve the funding below the manufacturing linked incentive (PLI) scheme for the home solar cells and module manufacturing to Rs 24,000 crore from the prevailing Rs 4,500 crore to make India an exporting nation.
“We introduced the PLI scheme (for solar cells and modules) price Rs 4,500 crore. We invited bids and we received 54,500 MW manufacturing capability of solar gear. We requested the federal government to sanction Rs 19,000 crore extra below the PLI, which was accredited (in-principle). Now we’d have a PLI of Rs 24,000 crore. We would be exporting solar gear,” Power and New & Renewable Energy Minister R Ok Singh advised PTI.
The minister additionally knowledgeable that at current solar module manufacturing capability within the nation is 8,800 MW whereas the solar cell manufacturing capability is 2,500 MW.
In April this 12 months, the Union Cabinet accredited a Rs 4,500 crore manufacturing linked incentive (PLI) scheme to enhance home manufacturing capability of solar PV modules.
The scheme is aimed toward including 10,000 MW manufacturing capability of built-in solar PV modules entailing direct funding of Rs 17,200 crore at current. With the rise in allocation to Rs 24,000 crore, the quantum of investments and home manufacturing capability envisaged below the PLI scheme would additional improve.
The PLI scheme — National Programme on High Efficiency Solar PV Modules — accredited by the Union Cabinet, is aimed toward decreasing import dependence in a strategic sector like electrical energy.
Under the scheme, solar PV producers will be chosen by a clear aggressive bidding course of. The PLI will be disbursed for 5 years put up commissioning of solar PV manufacturing vegetation, on gross sales of excessive effectivity solar PV modules.
Manufacturers will be rewarded for larger efficiencies of solar PV modules and in addition for sourcing their materials from the home market. The PLI quantity will improve with elevated module effectivity and elevated native worth addition.
