  6. 6. The need for Solar Rooftops  Rooftop potential for power generation is mind-boggling  Patna has a potential of 750MW on rooftops*  India has a potential of 150GW+ on rooftops. Our total power generation capacity is 288GW.  Why transmit when you can use at point of consumption?  India loses an estimated 40% of its energy produced in T&D.  30% of our population lives in darkness.  It is tough to find coal easily.  Everything needs energy.  7gms of carbon emitted per Google search.  Power tariffs will keep increasing.  Power tariffs are not less than Rs. 7.5/kWh anywhere. MH is at Rs. 11/kWh.  The climate has changed drastically.  5 degrees not 2 degrees.  A combination of Solar PV and Wind can run the entire country on clean energy. 100%.

  7. 7. The need to abolish coal  Destroy forests to mine coal.  Transport this coal overseas by sea.  Take the coal from port to power plant.  Burn the coal to move a turbine and produce power.  Release massive CO2 and polluted water while you burn it.  The water released from power plants is polluted in most parts of the world and causes mass destruction of aqua ecosystems.  Transmit power over long distances to points of consumption.  The carbon released into the atmosphere, does’nt let the heat out of the planet.  The heating causes a ripple effect of climatic changes right up to both Poles. Permafrost melts which releases methane which is 25x more carbon intensive than carbon dioxide.  When the carbon in the atmosphere is brought down to earth, it causes acidification in oceans, hence bleaching reefs and suffocating ecosystems.  Massive extinction is under way. Migration patterns are changing due to confusion amongst species.  Aqua ecosystems are inter-connected to rivers, aquifers, lakes and water bodies.  We pump our daily water from aquifers. India is the largest ground water user in the world.  The world was connected before the internet. And hence, a consumer in Ahmedabad can influence the entire globe.
  8. 8. Perceptions on Feasibility
  9. 9. Returns and the notion of Feasibility  Stock markets  Dow Jones: 10.4% (1990-2009)  Real Estate  India: 14-15% (2000-2015)  Industries (Net profit)  US: 7%-13% (2015)  Tax-free Bonds  India: 7-9%  Gold: 5-7% (1990-2016)
  10. 10. Private & Confidential Grid-connected Solar Rooftops for Urban India  Solar PV Rooftops are possible on all kinds of roofs.  Ideal for placement on residential, commercial or industrial.  Dead load in range of 16-25 khgs/Sq. Mtr.  Life of 25 years.  Low-maintenance with cleaning of panels required.  No batteries but dependent on grid stability.
  11. 11. Lifecycle Cost of Solar PV  IRR is 15% for a Solar PV System, but there is something more interesting. Particulars in Rs. Capex 2800000 Interest on Term Loan of 7 years 1646400 O&M for 15 years 750000 Total Expenses 5196400 Annual Units Generated 1057500 15-year Lifecycle Cost of Solar Power 4.91385 Lifecycle Costs for Solar PV over 15 year Life for a 50kW
  12. 12. Differentiating X from Y
  13. 13. What should be considered  Components are key.  No two solar vendors are the same.  There is more to the system than solar modules and inverters.  Placing emphasis only on price is not correct.  We are one of the cheapest markets for Solar PV in the world.  Few plants have seen more than 4 years.  Solar PV is about engineering a good plant which will last for 25years.  We have failed many times with different components or technical principles. #shashwatcleantechfails
  14. 14. Private & Confidential Why do people make the wrong decision  Asking the right questions related to the system and not only one component.  China has something for everybody.  Believe in hearsay.  If its too good to be true, it probably is.
  15. 15. Breaking the Shackles
  16. 16. Private & Confidential Scaling up, Moving quick  Help common man by making processes easy. Use technology to make documentation easier.  Emphasis on long-term and not short-term in investor mindset.  Remove subsidies, allow market modes to flourish. Adopt Interest Subvention or T&D Bonds for raising money.  Conduct an in-depth study of Lifecycle Costs of Coal, Diesel and Solar PV. Include all environmental, health and economic costs.  Create a Carbon Replacement Fund. Incentivise ‘carbon reduction’.  Financiers should look at applications like rooftops as they see tractors. BOOT is already a reality.
