In the second quarter of 2020, India added just 351 MW of?new solar capacity, taking total installed capacity to 38,377 MW by the end of June.
Of the new additions, 60% (211 MW) came from utility-scale solar and 40% (140 MW) from rooftop solar, according to?Bridge to India’s latest report,?India Solar Compass?Q2 2020.?The country’s total commissioned utility scale reached 32,497 MW, while rooftop solar stood at 5,880 MW.
The report said that?module prices?fell sharply for?multicrystalline modules?and mono-PERC modules during the quarter. However, engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) costs for?rooftop solar installations?remained unchanged at INR 32.5 ($0.44)/Wp, as the reduction in module prices was offset by a rise in balance-of-system prices.
