Rajasthan Solar Energy Policy

Rajasthan has emerged as a leader in solar energy in India. The state boasts extensive stretches of arid land receiving abundant sunlight, making it an ideal location for large-scale solar power plants. To capitalize on this potential, the Rajasthan government established the Rajasthan Renewable Energy Policy 2023. The policy plays a pivotal role in boosting the Indian solar market. Here are some key aspects of the policy:

 

Installation Targets

The policy sets ambitious targets of achieving 65 GW of solar capacity and 15 GW of wind-solar hybrid capacity by 2030.

 

Net Metering

The policy promotes net metering, allowing residents to install rooftop solar panels and sell excess electricity back to the grid.

 

Financial Incentives

The policy offers financial incentives to developers, including subsidies, tax breaks, and concessional transmission charges.

 

Renewable Energy Purchase Obligation (RPO)

The policy mandates that a certain percentage of the state's electricity needs must be met from renewable sources.
