TOTAL ( By 2015)



The 3000 MW of solar power generation will be achieved through Utility Scale Projects, Roof tops and REC mechanism.


The Solar Energy Policy mandates 6% Solar Purchase Obligation (SPO) (starting with 3% till December 2013 & 6% from January 2014) for the HT consumers (HT Tariff I to V) and LT commercial consumers.

The developers will be selected through the competitive bidding process.
