New standards for solar PV modules | Quote from Mr Sundeep Gupta, Vice Chairman & Managing Director, Jakson Group
With reference to the new set of standard specifications issued by the Government for solar Photo-Voltaic (PV) modules, please find below the comments of Mr Sundeep Gupta, Vice Chairman & Managing Director, Jakson Group –
“Jakson is fully supportive of the new notification issued by MNRE, Government of India, for Solar Photovoltaics, Systems, Devices and Components Goods requiring compulsory BIS registration. This move will ensure that sub-standard solar modules and components are not used in the construction of new solar installations in India. It will also be a big boost for domestic manufacturers as it will create a level playing field for them to compete with solar imports from other countries. There could be some cost escalation initially for new solar installations due to this directive, but it will be beneficial in the long run because Operational & Maintenance (O&M) costs of solar installations will reduce significantly due to usage of quality products.”
