Jawaharlal Nehru National Solar Mission

 

The first phase of the Jawaharlal Nehru National Solar Mission (JNNSM) is scheduled to be completed by 2013 only. However, as per progress available so far all the application segments of the Mission are going on as scheduled and on target.

 

             The details of projects sanctioned under the Phase-I of the JNNSM are as under:

i)          Projects under Migration Scheme (84 MW-Solar PV - 54MW, Solar Thermal – 30 MW)

ii)         Projects under New Project Scheme (Batch-I) (Solar PV- 150 MW, Solar Thermal- 470 MW):

iii)        Projects under New Projects Scheme (Batch-II) (Solar PV- 350 MW)

iv)        Projects under Roof top PV and Small Solar Power Generation Programme (RPSSGP) – 98.05 MW

 

             The details of the projects are given below:-

*Out of total 78 sanctioned Projects 11 Projects are to be commissioned by June, 2012.

           

The guidelines that deal with the import of solar modules for Phase-I are specified as under:

Batch-I: For Solar PV Projects, it is mandatory for Projects based on crystalline silicon technology to use the modules manufactured in India.

Batch-II: For Solar PV Projects to be selected in second batch, it will be mandatory for all the projects to use cells and modules manufactured in India. PV Modules made from thin film technologies or concentrator PV cells may be sourced from any country, provided the technical qualification criterion is fully met.

 

All the Developers using Crystalline Silicon technology have confirmed compliance of domestic content clause.

 

            Following allegations in a section of the media about violation of guidelines by some companies, the Ministry has set up an inquiry committee. The committee comprises representatives from the Ministries of New & Renewable Energy, Power and Corporate Affairs.

 

            The inquiry committee is yet to submit its final report.

 

This information was given by the Minister of New and Renewable Energy Dr. Farooq Abdullah in a written reply to a question in Lok Sabha today.
