Andhra Pradesh

The Andhra Pradesh Solar Power Policy 2015 aims to build on the status of the state as one of the pilot states for the implementation of the Ministry of Power’s Power for All (PFA) scheme. It highlights the availability of about 300 sunny days in a year with solar insolation of more than 5 kWh/m²/day as one of the key factors in the state’s solar credentials.

Gujarat

The Gujarat Solar Power Policy 2015 has its eye on the potential for development of more than 10,000 MW of solar generation capacity. Since it was created in 2009, the state’s renewable energy policy has resulted in cumulative solar capacity in excess of 1000 MW. It now plans to scale up that solar power generation in a sustainable manner.

Haryana

Haryana’s Solar Power Policy endeavours to create an enabling environment to attract public and private investments in solar power generations and also in creating manufacturing facilities used in the industry. The state is exploring the possibility of setting up 50 MW capacity solar power plants on barren panchayat lands and will promote projects under the Jawaharlal Nehru National Solar to install solar photovoltaic and concentrated solar power plants.

Madhya Pradesh

The Madhya Pradesh Solar policy provided a major thrust to the installation of solar projects in the state. It claims the bankability of solar photovoltaic (SPV) projects and trained manpower within the country has led to a huge interest in the sector by private investors. The state believes SPV has vast potential for its use at decentralised load locations. The SPV small power plants can be installed on roofs or within the premises of consumers.

Rajasthan

‘Solar For a Brighter Future’ is the theme of Rajasthan’s Solar Power Policy. The sunshine rich state says it is determined to make full use of this inexhaustible energy source. Rajasthan has set a goal of 25,000 MW of installed solar power generation capacity. It also envisages a solar centre of excellence that would work towards applied research and commercialisation of nascent technologies to accelerate the march to grid parity.
