    INDIA DISPLAYS SOLAR'S VERSATILITY

    Solar Energy: Improving the Livelihoods of India’s Rural Salt-Pan Farmers

    Anjali Jaiswal, Sept. 11, 2014 (Epoch Times)

    And L&T Construction Commissions World’s Largest Single Rooftop Solar PV Plant in Punjab Sept. 3, 2014 (Larsen and Toubro Construction)

    “…[S]olar power is shedding some light towards improving the difficult lives of rural communities by increasing clean energy access…[10,000 salt farmers, or agarias,] of the scorching hot Kutch Desert Surendranagar District of Gujarat in Western India…For years, without access to the energy grid, the agarias have been using diesel-powered generator pumps to draw brine from the ground, and as the prices of diesel have risen, the farmers have been spending every penny they earn or save to run the pumps…[E]ach saltpan requires about 200 liters of diesel for a traditional diesel pump, an expenditure of approximately INR 10,000 ($170)…Thanks to the [solar] pilot undertaken by [the Self Employed Women’s Association (SEWA)] energy from a solar panel mounted near the pumps provides clean energy to power the pumps, giving the saltpan farmers an opportunity to save energy and costs for the first time…” click here for more

    "L&T Construction, India’s largest solar EPC company…commissioned the world’s largest Solar Photovoltaic Plant of 7.52 MWp capacity on a single roof at Amritsar in Punjab…The energy generated from this plant is being fed to the local grid through a power purchase agreement (PPA) signed with the state distribution company under the New and Renewable Sources of Energy (NRSE) Policy…More than 30,000 [multi-crystalline modules] were erected on…[fragile asbestos roof sheets with the entire load] transferred to the roof of the space frame members…[W]ater proofing techniques were used to avoid leakages…and L&T built] a permanent network of aluminium walkways…” click here for more
