The Ministry of New and Renewable Energy has decided to hold separate auctions for solar projects using domestically manufactured modules to help local producers of panels that can tap the sun's energy.

 

For some auctions, the ministry is also dropping a requirement for panel makers to source locally made solar cells. 

The first of these, a 500 MW tender for solar projects using only locally produced modules, is going to be announced soon. Such projects will help boost the sales of local module manufacturers since solar developers winning projects in India prefer to import equipment from China and Thailand, which are 8-10% cheaper due to economies of scale and technologically superior.
