Rajasthan has emerged as one of the favorite destinations for wind and solar power manufacturers across the world; with the State bagging maximum number of projects as part of Central government’s ambitious plan of increasing solar power capacity.
Solar Thermal Power
Rajasthan has got five projects of total 400 MW, including three projects of 100 MW each and two projects of 50 MW each
Andhra Pradesh has received only one project for 50 MW and
Gujarat has also got only one project of 20 MW capacity.
Solar Photo voltaic (PV)
21 projects with a total capacity of 105 MW will be developed in Rajasthan
3 projects with a total capacity of 15 MW in Andhra Pradesh, and
2 projects having a total capacity of 10 MW in Karnataka.
1 project of 5MW each in Maharashtra, Uttar Pradesh, Tamil Nadu and Orissa
What has worked for Rajasthan is the easy availability of land as compared to other state, where finding big chunk of land is difficult in addition the process of converting agriculture land for industrial purpose is tedious.
The state government is also offering the land for 25 years with industrial purpose and ready on lease for solar power project developers. The best thing is a developer can buy land even before signing power purchase agreement (PPA) without any pre-condition to join Rajasthan solar policy or to go with Jawaharlal Nehru National Solar Mission (JNNSM) policy.
