Strategies Launched for Acquiring Solar Energy Earmarks – MNRE

Solar Energy Earmarks MNRE

India is holding the biggest renewable capacity extension program on the planet. The Centre has taken up several strategies for acquiring Solar Energy earmarks; targets of 20,000 MW of solar power proposed to be introduced in the nation 2022.

  • Off-Grid Housetop: Programed to install 40GW solar rooftop programs where Grid is now exist. 15% Government sponsorship for non-commercial and non-i classifications for utilizing domestic solar panels would be given.

  • Strategy for Development of Grid Connected Solar PV Power Plants on Canal Banks and Canal Tops: MNRE propelled a Plan for Improvement of Grid Connected Solar PV Power Plants on Canal Banks and Canal Tops in the nation amid the 12th Plan period at an expected expense of Rs. 975 crore and with Central Financial Assistance (CFA) of Rs. 228 crore. The Plants Canal Banks and Canal Tops with 50 MW capacities under every class have been endorsed to 8 States (Gujarat, Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Kerala, Uttar Pradesh, Punjab, Uttarakhand and West Bengal).
  • Plan for Decentralized Generation of Sun powered Energy Ventures by Unemployed Youths and Agriculturists. It is expected that around 10GW solar ventures would be install. Experimental Financing of such activities could be viable as value is being set up by the state, local bodies and entrepreneurs.
  • New Loan plan to stimulate housetop solar power ventures declared by IREDA. Under this plan, loans will issue at the interest rates of around 9.9% and 10.75% to framework aggregators and facilitators.
  • Surya Mitra Scheme initiate for fabricating 50,000 Trained personnel inside of a time of 5 years (2015-16 to 2019-20). The course content has been affirmed by the National Council of Vocational Training as per the National Skill, Qualification System. As on 30.9.2015, an aggregate of 27 projects including Rs 17 crore have been endorsed to SNAs by NISE. In 2015-16, 70 projects will be directed against which 27 programs have begun.
