Ciel et Terre Opens a New Floating Solar Manufacturing Unit
Stéphane Prouvost, CEO of Ciel & Terre India said that the company is also in discussion with Solar Energy Corporation of India (SECI) for a 150 MW floating PV project at the Rihand Dam in Uttar Pradesh, India’s largest dam by volume. Prouvost further added that there are two main markets for floating PV in India. First is the captive market, since India has many conglomerates that own huge water bodies and reservoirs like on steel and thermal power industries. Power from the grid for such companies is at ` 6-9 (~$0.087-0.13) per unit, whereas floating solar can offer power at less than ` 5(~$0.073).”
