    Solar power in India is a fast-growing industry and as of 30 September 2016, the country's solar grid had a cumulative capacity of 8,626 megawatts (MW) or 8.63 gigawatts (GW). In January 2015, the Indian government expanded its solar plans, targeting US$100 billion of investment and 100 GW of solar capacity, including 40 GW's directly from rooftop solar, by 2022. The rapid growth in deployment of solar power is recorded and updated monthly on the Indian Government's Ministry of New and Renewable Energy website. Large scale solar power deployment began only as recently as 2010, yet the ambitious targets would see India installing more than double that achieved by world leaders China or Germany in all of the period up to 2015 year end. In addition to the large-scale grid connected solar PV ...

    Campaigners criticise the "industrialisation" of the countryside but developers of solar farms say they need to be built there. Rural campaigners say the push to generate green energy through giant solar farms is having an unacceptable impact on Britain's rural landscape. Developments like Burntstalks Solar Farm in Norfolk, which has nearly 50,000 photovoltaic panels and captures enough of the sun's rays to power nearly 4,000 homes, are heralded as a sensible solution to the UK's energy needs. However, some claim the sites are yet another blot on the landscape and are ruining the countryside. David Hook, from the Campaign to Protect Rural England, told Sky News: "I think that if policy is not changed ... the industrialisation through solar farms and extra wind turbines is going to have...

In January 2015, the Indian government expanded its solar plans, targeting US$100 billion of investment and 100 GW of solar capacity, including 40 GW's directly from rooftop solar, by 2022. The rapid growth in deployment of solar power is recorded and updated monthly on the Indian Government's Ministry of New and Renewable Energy website. Large scale solar power deployment began only as recently as 2010, yet the ambitious targets would see India installing more than double that achieved by world leaders China or Germany in all of the period up to 2015 year end. In addition to the large-scale grid connected solar PV initiative, India is continuing to develop the use of off-grid solar power for localized energy needs. India has a poor electrification rate in rural areas. In 2015, only 55% of all rural households had access to electricity, and 85% of rural households depended on solid fuel for cooking. Solar products have increasingly helped to meet rural needs, and by the end of 2015, a cumulative total of just under 1 million solar lanterns had been sold in the country, reducing the need for expensive kerosene. In addition, a cumulative total of 30,256 solar powered water pumps for agriculture and drinking water had been installed. During 2015 alone, 118,700 solar home lighting systems were installed, and 46,655 solar street lighting installations were provided under a national program. The same year saw just over 1.4 million solar cookers distributed or sold in India. In January 2016, the Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi, and the President of France, Mr. François Hollande laid the foundation stone for the headquarters of the International Solar Alliance (ISA) in Gwalpahari, Gurgaon. The ISA will focus on promoting and developing solar energy and solar products for countries lying wholly or partially between the Tropic of Cancer and the Tropic of Capricorn. The alliance of over 120 countries was announced at the Paris COP21 climate summit. One of the hopes of the ISA is that wider deployment will reduce production and development costs, and thus facilitate increased deployment of solar technologies, including in poor and remote regions. India is ranked number one in solar electricity production per watt installed, with an insolation of 1700 to 1900 kilowatt hours per kilowatt peak (kWh/KWp).[10] On 16 May 2011, India’s first solar power project (with a capacity of 5 MW) was registered under the Clean Development Mechanism. The project is in Sivagangai Village, Sivaganga district, Tamil Nadu. India saw a sudden rise in use of solar electricity in 2010, when 25.1 MW was added to the grid, and the trend accelerated when 468.3 MW was added in 2011. Recent growth has been over 3,000 MW per year (see table below) and is set to increase yet further. Government-funded solar electricity in India was just 6.4 MW per year in 2005.

With solar panel system prices falling nearly 20 percent last year, the industry is expected to almost triple in size within the next five years. That's why in Oakland, California, an accelerator program is hoping to cash in on the boom by developing innovative products to usher in an intelligent energy era. CGTN's Mark Niu reports.

http://www.sc.org/Solar101 Golden Globe-nominated actor and social justice advocate John Leguizamo breaks down why solar energy is worth fighting for in under two minutes! Despite popularity and record-breaking growth, rooftop solar is increasingly under attack by lobbyists from power companies that are fighting policies that would expand solar access and benefits. Watch the Solar 101 video, then let your power company know that you support solar at http://www.sc.org/Solar101 Full transcript to follow (English and Spanish closed captioning also available): The earth gets more energy from the sun in one day than the whole world’s population uses in an entire year. Solar energy is a clean, abundant resource that is growing at staggering rates while costs plummet. Solar panels turn sunlight into electricity, which can be used to meet most -- or even all -- of a household’s energy needs. During the day, most rooftop solar owners produce more electricity than they use. When that happens, the electricity meter literally runs backwards sending the excess energy back to the grid. This process is called Net Metering. Most local governments have a system of solar credits that require utilities to pay consumers for the energy they generate for the grid. At night, or anytime a household is using more energy than its solar panels are generating, the extra energy needed is pulled from the grid and those “solar credits” are then used. It’s like rollover minutes for your energy bill. Paying homeowners back for the energy they contribute to the grid just makes sense. But, some utilities want to take the energy solar homes contribute to the grid, without fairly compensating the owners. Attacks on net metering policies are unfair to homeowners and small business owners, and put hundreds of thousands of American solar jobs at risk. By supporting net metering rights we will ensure the future continues to be bright for solar. ### Subscribe for more from Sierra Club: http://smarturl.it/SierraClub_Subscribe Founded by legendary conservationist John Muir in 1892, the Sierra Club is now the nation's largest and most influential grassroots environmental organization -- with three million members and supporters.

Campaigners criticise the "industrialisation" of the countryside but developers of solar farms say they need to be built there. Rural campaigners say the push to generate green energy through giant solar farms is having an unacceptable impact on Britain's rural landscape. Developments like Burntstalks Solar Farm in Norfolk, which has nearly 50,000 photovoltaic panels and captures enough of the sun's rays to power nearly 4,000 homes, are heralded as a sensible solution to the UK's energy needs. However, some claim the sites are yet another blot on the landscape and are ruining the countryside. David Hook, from the Campaign to Protect Rural England, told Sky News: "I think that if policy is not changed ... the industrialisation through solar farms and extra wind turbines is going to have a dramatic effect on the countryside, and a very negative effect." It is only two years since the UK's first large scale sun park began generating electricity in Lincolnshire. There are now nearly 160, mostly in rural areas, with a further 229 under construction or awaiting approval. Lightsource Renewable Energy owns and operates dozens of solar farms, including Burntstalks, near King's Lynn. Mark Turner, the company's operations director, said: "The balance we have to strike is between a solar farm that can generally only be seen by people very close up to it and usually by fleeting glimpses through hedgerows as you are driving along, versus potential wind farms or the other alternatives of non-renewables including nuclear power stations and coal-fired power stations. "The amount of ground taken up by the farm is minimal and what we then try to do, as far as possible, is to use the land for dual use. "We graze sheep or plant wild flowers, so the land is used for the kind of purpose it would be used for before the panels were here." The Government has made it clear it backs the production of solar energy, which it hopes will eventually produce 20GW of energy every year - eight times more than at present and enough to power around six million homes. Its priority is for panels to be put on brownfield sites and the roofs of factories, hospitals and houses but according to Mr Turner, that is not always possible. "Finding roof tops that are owned by companies we can rely on to be there in the 25 years we need to return the investment is extremely difficult," he said. "And finding brownfield sites that are sufficiently far enough south to generate enough electricity, are close enough to the grid and aren't dedicated to other purposes, is extremely difficult."

An estimated two thirds of sub-saharan Africa's population are without electricity providing huge opportunities for renewable energy companies. But, unlike more established markets overseas.. a lack of consumer information has presented some challenges for start-ups looking to expand into new territories. A former Silicon Valley engineer has brought his expertise to Kenya's emerging sector hoping to provide start-ups with real time market data when supplying communities with electricity.

Pardon the pun, but the solar power’s growth is looking rather bright. The price of solar financing has been steadily declining since 2012, making it a cost-efficient and clean energy source for businesses, schools and homes alike. Outshining the competition of coal and wind, solar power has been rapidly growing in popularity, breaking previous photovoltaic records— a trend that is predicted to continue in the years to come.
