Rajasthan a favourite for solar power projects in India

According to reports, the majority of proposals submitted this year by private entrepreneurs to the NTPC Vidyut Vyapar Nigam (NVVN) for establishing 350 MW solar power projects based on the solar photovoltaic technique are for Rajasthan.

Of the 210 proposals received by the NVVN under the first phase of the Jawaharlal Nehru National Solar Mission, 145 were for Rajasthan, said Rajasthan Renewable Energy Corporation Director (Technical) M. M. Vijayavargiya here on Thursday.

The private sector proposals for solar power projects include 9 for Gujarat, 20 for Andhra Pradesh, 19 for Maharashtra, 12 for Tamil Nadu and 5 for Orissa.

Mr. Vijayavargiya said the private sector’s inclination for Rajasthan was the result of the State Government’s “liberal policies” promoting solar power production through a single window system, allotment of land on concession and strengthening of transmission network as well as the availability of sunlight throughout the year.
