For the first time in India’s history, solar power generation cross the milestone of 10 terawatts (TW) hours in a quarter. The milestone is a testament to the rapid increase in India’s solar power capacity over the last few years given the strong emphasis of the government on the promotion of renewable energy technologies.
According to CleanTechnica, the Central Electricity Authority reported that India generated 11.3 terawatt hours (TWh) of solar power during the quarter of January-March 2019. This marks a 16.5% increase from the previous quarter and a huge 57% jump from the same quarter last year.
The share of solar power in India’s overall power generation understandably increased to its highest level ever — 3.4%. The jump in solar power generation also gave a boost to the share of overall renewable energy in the overall power mix to 8.7%, up from 7.3% in Q4 2018 and 7.5% in Q1 2018.
