Department of energy pushing photovoltaic pilot project for poverty alleviation up subsidies or 70%

Polaris solar PV net news: “the household and agricultural facilities-based photovoltaic projects for poverty alleviation or subsidy rate was 70%. “In the National Energy Board recently issued by the new and renewable energy Division of the PV implementation programming outline for poverty alleviation (trial) (hereinafter referred to as the guidelines), subsidies for PV project proposal highlights the file.

The outline put forward in the policy guarantee measures, combined with the pilot counties programmes proposed places in the province to be taken to support the policy, including funding methods, and scale, the system of fiscal and taxation policy, professional services, power supply, safeguards and supervision.

Which, supporting funds and the tax policy can reference for: by local Government on households with and based on agricultural facilities of PV pro-poor project gives 35% initial investment subsidies, and on large ground station gives 20% initial investment subsidies, national by, proportions for initial investment subsidies configuration; households with and based on agricultural facilities of PV pro-poor project loan period 5 years, enjoy Bank full discount, large ground station loan period 10 years, enjoy Bank full discount.

Although the outline is only for reference in pilot areas to develop a concrete plan, but to convey “ATD pushing PV” support make people’s eyes light up. Chief Analyst at consulting firm IHS Energy information solar Lian Rui caixin said, represented the development of photovoltaic renewable energy and combined with the were Guo Huimin initiative for poverty alleviation. Particularly on the promotion of residential photovoltaic system, he believed that the initial investment and State share 70%, 30% construction Fund completed 5-year subsidized loans through banks, which effectively solved the poor construction of residential photovoltaic system’s financial difficulties. According to reports, the single user current construction costs 10 dollars per watt of solar system.

But according to Lian Rui speculated that the photovoltaic capacity for poverty reduction is small, limited to PV industry demands pull effect. More photovoltaic pilot project for poverty alleviation is to gain practical experience, for countries establishing household photovoltaic promotion policy to reference. As far as 2015 PV development plan established by the National Energy Board, roof, including household PV distributed PV new size for at least 3.15 million-kilowatt.

Household refers to distributed PV systems at the top put photovoltaic panels at home or in the yard, by small power inverter to convert the DC photovoltaic AC adapter of household appliances, and will meet the electricity power grid, gets return. As the main form of distributed PV, residential photovoltaic system has been successfully promoted abroad. It is understood that Germany over 90% from distributed photovoltaic solar power generation systems, residential roofing plant more than 1 million. By third quarter of 2014, United States PV total of 17.5 million-kilowatt, of which 16.1 million-kilowatt for distributed PV.

In China, promoting faster than distributed PV systems, centralized photovoltaic power plant. National Energy Board Secretary Liang zhipeng, Deputy Director, new and renewable sources of energy on February 15 presented at the briefing on the development of photovoltaic industry in 2014, new grid-connected PV power installed capacity of 10.6 million-kilowatt, which distributed 2.05 million-kilowatt; national total cumulative installed capacity 28.05 million-kilowatt, distributed PV and only 4.67 million-kilowatt.

Liang zhipeng, also pointed out the problems of distributed PV development, such as power system restriction, State-subsidized funding application and identification process is more complex, distributed PV subsidies in place in some areas is not timely, expensive financing, financing and so on. Policy on these issues needs to be further addressed.
