Rajasthan Solar Policy and it’s Solar Highlights

Rajasthan is India’s largest state by area and is located in the north-western side of the country. Being a popular tourist destination Rajasthan is home to several famous cities such as Jaipur, Udaipur, Jodhpur, Bikaner etc. Rajasthan is one of the leading states when it comes to commissioned solar power with more than 1318MW of solar power already in use. 47.71MW of this power has been added to the grid in the FY 16/17. Jodhpur has the maximum projects in the state with 42 projects that total up to 293MW of power. The state is home to several solar parks such as the Dhirubhai Ambani Solar Park and the RRECL Solar Park which will be commissioned completely by 2017. In order to push the adaptation of solar, the state government announced its solar energy policy in 2014 to add an additional capacity of 25,000MW in Rajasthan. It is estimated that solar parks of more than 500MW will be developed by joint ventures between the state government and private company. Net metering scheme has been announced too to promote rooftop generation that allows consumers to feedback the extra power back to the green. beyond this the state has taken several steps such as fast-tracking the process of approvals for mega large projects that are above 500MW outlining its commitment towards solar energy.
