17 Oct 2020

Are you planning to start your own business in India? Well, starting a solar business might be one of the best decisions you can make to kickstart a successful entrepreneurial journey. Before we get into the steps of how you can become a ‘solarprenuer’, let’s help you make an informed choice by understanding the shift of energy consumption from conventional methods to renewable energy and the potential of solar business in India.

The world is seeing a massive shift towards renewable energy. Infact, solar energy consumption of the world has grown exponentially in the last decade from the total solar consumption increasing from 33.68 TWh in 2010 to 453.52 TWh, a steep xx . In the Indian context,  the country has expanded its installed solar power capacity by 233 times from 161 MW to 37,627 MW in the last decade.

With the government backing up solar businesses in India with major policy changes and financial incentives, there is no better time to invest in a solar business. Along with this, the recent breakthrough that has led solar to beat coal in terms of rates with a levelised tariff of Rs 3.52/unit as opposed to coal’s Rs 4.5/unit is proof that the shift from conventional to renewable form of energy is finally here. Now that you’re convinced you’re moving in the right direction, let’s take a cool at the market opportunity and scope of a solar business in India.

National Potential

Did you know that India is the third largest producer of solar electric power after China and the USA? With most of the country’s tropical surface area receiving optimum solar radiation around the year, the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy has declared our total solar power potential at nearly 750GW!

                                      According to the World Bank, India has “among the best conditions in the world to capture and use solar energy”. 

However, there is a huge gap in the total potential versus the current capacity with our current solar power installed capacity being just 3 GW, or less than 0.5% of the total potential. Nonetheless, for entrepreneurs there is a massive opportunity to tap into this market and start a solar business in India.

Let’s see how you can become a successful solarprenuer:

While there are a lot of different types of solar businesses you can tap into ranging from Solar Installation Business, Solar Sales Business, Solar Manufacturing Business to Energy or Solar Consultant Business, starting all these require a lot of capital, renewable energy expertise and legal formalities.
