Should You Invest in Solar Energy Stocks in India? 

The sun is shining bright on solar energy stocks in India.

The green energy sector is booming as India aims to achieve 500GW capacity of renewable energy by 2030. Investing in this sector is a promising opportunity for both seasoned investors and beginners. There are plenty of solar energy stocks to bring into your portfolio.

On 7th April 2021, The Union Cabinet approved the Production Linked Incentive (PLI) Scheme to boost the manufacturing of solar PV modules. The total of INR. 24,000 cr dedicated towards the sector aims to produce 39,600 MW capacity. India is set to create solar cities across the nation. The 1st solar city, ‘Sachi’, has already been launched in Madhya Pradesh in 2023. As the country marches ahead in this sector, many big solar panel manufacturers are raising INR. 5,800 cr this year. These funds will be used to establish 500 GW capacity by 2030. Along with Solar Panels, the manufacturers will also produce cells, wafers, and ingots under the PLI scheme.

The top three solar module manufacturers are:

1. Waree Energies
2. Vikram Solar

All three of these companies are coming up with their IPO, out of which, Waree Energies and Vikram Solar are available for purchase in the unlisted market for allocation confirmation. To inquire about the Waree Energies share price and Vikram Solar share price, get in touch with VNN Wealth.
