Star Labelling Of Solar Panels:
The Indian government has introduced a Star Labelling Programme for solar panels to enhance consumer awareness and promote the use of high-quality and energy-efficient solar photovoltaic modules.
- The Star Labelling Programme for solar panels is designed to help consumers make informed choices when purchasing and installing solar panels.
- The program aims to empower consumers by providing information about the quality and energy efficiency of solar panels.
- It is estimated that by 2030, the star-enabled solar panels will contribute to a reduction of approximately 30 million tonnes of CO2 emissions annually.
- The program will be voluntary for the first two years.
- “Made in India” Initiative
- Solar Energy Expansion
- India anticipates adding an additional 200 GW of solar panels by 2030, contributing to a substantial increase in solar energy capacity.
- The Star Labelling Programme is a voluntary program that rates the energy efficiency of appliances on a scale of 1-5. The program was formulated by the Bureau of Energy Efficiency (BEE) under the Energy Conservation Act, 2001.
