Minister of Power, Mr Piyush Goyal recently put to rest doubts regarding the quality of Chinese solar equipment. Speaking on the sidelines of the 7th India-Japan Energy Forum, he said that India is looking at affordable power and not at the country of its origin, especially when it is imported by private players who ensure quality beforehand. It is reported that India imported solar and PV cells worth about US$ 826 million from China in the first six months of the current fiscal, which is over 87% of the country’s total such imports.

“We are looking at ensuring that power cost remains affordable in India and within that, as long as quality is maintained in a globally integrated world, we dont see where the equipment comes from. At the same time, we are looking at encouraging Indian manufacturers to expand their scale of operations and bring in the best of technologies,” Mr Goyal was quoted as saying.
