Draft Rajasthan Solar Energy Policy, 2014

The State of Rajasthan receives maximum solar radiation intensity in India with very low average rainfall. It also has unutilized low cost desert land available in abundance. Therefore, Rajasthan is likely to emerge as the global hub for solar power in the country. Challenge of climate change and global warming continuously threaten the world community and Rajasthan Govt. has also recognized the urgent need to tackle these challenges. To tap the potential of the emerging revolution in solar energy and to leverage advantage from the Jawaharlal Nehru National Solar Mission launch by Government of India, the State Government has decided to review the existing Rajasthan Solar Energy Policy, 2011.
