Draft Policy Phase II of JNNSM

The Ministry of New and Renewable Energy today released the Draft Policy of Phase II of Jawaharlal Nehru National Solar Mission.

The Policy says that Phase-II will be used to build on the achievements of phase-I to ensure continued success of National Solar Mission; with the thrust on large scale solar projects.

Phase-II is targeting to bring cumulative solar capacity to 10 GW by 2017. Central Government shall provide the required support for development of solar projects and unlike Phase-I, Phase-II is not entirely dependent on bundling scheme to bring the costs down. Implementation of Phase-II will have to be reply upon combination of various schemes like Generation Based Incentive (GBI), Viability Gap Funding (VGF) and Bundling schemes. Witnessing steep fall in tariff discovered under phase-I, Phase-II is expected to achieve new heights of success while achieving the grid parity before 2017.


    Objectives for promotion of Grid Connected Solar Power during phase-II are as under:

    • To achieve Grid Parity at the earliest
    • To facilitate meeting of Solar RPO targets in line with Tariff Policy
    • To facilitate increased connectivity & grid access for solar projects
    • To encourage Solar park cluster development
    • To promote technology agnostic approach
    • To develop domestic technology development capability
    • To Encourage large scale deployment of Grid connected rooftop solar
    • To encourage Captive and Third party sale of solar power to meet power shortages in Industry
    • To Encourage local Manufacturing and
    • To support focused Rq&D initiatives
    • Development of REC market
    • Development of Storage Systems


I will take sometime to go through the entire document and analyse it….till then here is the link to the document:
