What will be the fate of Jawaharlal Nehru National Solar Mission
With a view to push solar energy, the Government of India announced the ambitious Jawaharlal Nehru National Solar Mission (JNNSM) bundling scheme - blending of the solar energy along with the unallocated thermal energy in 2:1 ratio. The idea of bundling scheme was aimed with a view to promote consumption of solar energy, however, this scheme is yet to kick off for many reasons. The states now has become circumspect about the bundling scheme because of various reasons, the most important being its cost. Today thermal energy cost is Rs. 3.5-3.6 per unit while solar is costing Rs. 6-8 per unit, and if the bundling is done then on an average the cost of bundled power will be higher than what today the end consumers are paying for thermal. Already loaded with cumulative losses of Rs 3.5 lakh crore, the discoms are unwilling to buy costlier power and further burdening theirstretched books. Adding to it the availability of loose thermal for bundling is another big question which is making the scheme further tough to accomplish. India imports 77 per cent of the energy from other countries while its solar energy installation currently stands at 3,000 MW. The Modi government is aiming to cut down its imports to 50 per cent by 2030 by proper utilization of domestic conventional energy as well as non conventional. Because of renewable energy being expensive, many of the states are also not able to achieve their renewable power obligation (RPO) or do not buy more than their RPO i.e. 1-1.5 per cent of total power consumption ..
