Haryana’s revised solar power policy offers concessions and waivers to solar project developers to boost the state’s solar capacity

Waiving off

The revised policy has raised the solar renewable purchase obligation (RPO) requirements to 8 per cent by FY2022. The Haryana Electricity Regulatory Commission (HERC) has also waived off charges for solar projects, including wheeling charges, cross-subsidy charges, transmission and distribution charges and other additional surcharges for third party sale or open access consumers of energy during FY2017-18 to FY2020-21. These waived charges will be in effect till the state reaches its target of installing around 500 MW solar capacity.

Build-Own-Operate scheme

Mercom has reported that HERC will be putting a limit on the total aggregate capacity of grid-connected solar power projects to be set up under its Build-Own-Operate scheme. The projects under this program will be using mono/crystalline silicon, thin film or CPV solar panels. However, projects that have already been implemented under some other scheme will be excluded.

The scheme has laid out the eligibility of a minimum of 1 MW to a maximum of up to 100 MW. The criteria will be that of a minimum 250 kW in case of solar projects located in a solar park and that of rooftop projects will be 250 kW-1 MW.

The revised Solar Power Policy 2016 is expected to enhance the expansion of solar power projects in Haryana. It is also aimed at proper implementation, extending support to project developers and achieve the renewable purchase obligation (RPO) requirements.
