Kerala To Mainstream Use Of Solar

The Indian state of Kerala will mainstream the use of solar energy. The decision was made by the Cabinet Ministry while approving the Kerala Solar Energy Policy.

According to the policy, the installed capacity in Kerala’s solar sector will be increased to 500 MW by 2017 and subsequently to 2,500 MW by 2030. In order to increase the uptake of solar, generation at offsite locations such as wastelands, reservoirs, wastelands, canals and quarries will also be promoted.

Off-grid solar applications will also be promoted to replace diesel-based generator sets. Additionally, to allow for large-scale absorption of solar power into the system, a programme for exploring and developing pumped storage schemes will be promoted.
