ONergy’s Take on Union Budget 2018-19 for Solar Energy

Onergy Collage

The emerging name for solar solution in Pan India, ONergy Solar has embarked on the vision of sustainable future by solarizing India since nine long and successful years. ONergy Solar, an integral part of ON Conglomerate provides complete solar solutions to households, communities and institutions. It provides design, engineering, manufacturing, installation, O&M solutions for solar rooftop power plant, solar irrigation pumping, solar lighting and microgrids. We have setup a range of solar solutions with over 50,000 installations in partnership with Government, Commercial / Rural Banks, Leading NGOs and MFIs – through its proprietary network of Renewable Energy Service Centers (RECs) with the strong mission to impact and provide solar energy to 10 million lives by 2023.

Amidst several hue and cry in India over the union budget for renewable energy, ONergy’s approach towards it is very positive and ONergy is ready to encash on the facility Government has given to the farmers with heavy dose of funding in the budget for ‘KUSUM’ (Kisan Urja Suraksha Utthaan Maha Abhiyaan) scheme. The refreshed version of the ongoing scheme doubles to 60% from 30% currently the subsidy for buying solar pumps. So the farmers can make extra buck or two by switching to solar power for running irrigation pumps and selling surplus power to discoms. ONergy has always focused on Onergising agriculture by installation of solar irrigation pumps in different regions of the country and with government’s support towards the farmers we will definitely be benefited from major shift of the agrarian industry to equitable energy source. The refreshed scheme envisages spending Rs 48,000 crore over the next 10 years to wean farmers away from diesel-run pumps and also convert grid-connected irrigation pumps to solar power for ensuring clean, reliable operation and the scheme entails Rs. 1.4 lakh crore roadmap to turn farmers into generators of solar power, which they can use to run their pumpsets. The Times of India (Mumbai edition) has stated, “The scheme will allow farmers to put barren land to profitable use by allowing construction of solar power projects on them. Altogether, 10,000 MW solar power capacity is envisaged to be built under the scheme.” ONergy will extend all support to the farmers to bank on solar power soon for extra buck.
