A solar power solution to Delhi’s power crisis

Photo | May 13, 2013

Currently most of Delhi’s electricity comes from thermal power plants which are mostly situated in other states. In 2012, we saw the biggest blackout in the history of the country where half the population was powerless for days. Delhi was severely affected along with other Northern, Eastern and North East states. If 75% of Delhi’s electricity was not generated from coal, and decentralised renewable energy was available, Delhi could have powered itself to a large extent during the grid failure.

Unfortunately, Delhi is one of the few states in the country that does not have any policy for alternate sources of energy like wind, solar and biomass. In 2012, in the absence of a policy and roadmap, the state failed to tap into solar and bio-mass energy, especially during the periods of peak demand.
