Hardening in PV module price to moderate the returns for the projects awarded over the last 6 to 9-m

Published on: 11:45 am

  • The increase in imported photovoltaic (PV) solar module price level by about 15-20% over the last 4-5 months, to around 22-23 cents/watt as on date, is likely to impact returns of solar power project developers. This price rise has been mainly driven by a sharp increase in the price of polysilicon, a key input for cell & module manufacturers.
  • As per an ICRA note, given the import dependency for PV modules for a majority of the solar power installations in India, such hardening in the price of PV modules, if sustained, remains a near-term headwind. This risk is especially significant for the capacity won by developers through the bidding route over the last six to nine months (amounting to 4-GW[1]) at tariffs ranging largely between Rs2.00 per unit and 2.25 per unit; and scheduled to be commissioned over the next 12-15-month period. This apart, the recent surge in metal prices is also leading to upward pressure on the overall capital cost for solar power projects. Read More
