MNRE made public the results of power generation from Rice Husk and Solar

Today Dr Farooq Abdullah reported the results of differnt initiatives focused on rural development in India.
Fifty seven rice husk based gasifiers of 32 kW capacity each have so far been installed in Bihar. Stand alone solar photovoltaic (SPV) power plants of 18.275kWp capacity have been installed in the country as on 31.03.2012. State-wise capacity of stand-alone SPV power plants installed in the country as on 31.03.2012

An investment of Rs. 16-18 lakhs is required for installation of a 32 kW rice husk gasifier system with 100% producer gas engine and a distribution network. The life of such a system is around 10 years subject to proper operation and maintenance. Benchmark cost for a stand-alone solar photovoltaic power plant is Rs. 2.7 lakhs per kilowatt. The life of a solar photovoltaic module is 25 years.

The Ministry has been promoting the diesel-solar hybrid systems in various industrial units in the country with an objective of saving diesel.

The Ministry is providing 30% capital subsidy subject to a maximum of Rs.57/- per watt peak without battery bank to industrial and commercial units for installation of solar PV power plant upto 100 kWp unit capacity to mitigate diesel consumption.
