JREDA prepares framework for rooftop solar policy

The Jharkhand Renewable Energy Development Authority (JREDA) has prepared a framework for the state’s solar rooftop policy for 2018, with the objective of achieving 500 MW of solar rooftop capacity by 2022. The policy, which is yet to be notified, proposes to provide a one-time financial subsidy of up to a minimum of 30 per cent for large-scale plants and households. JREDA is also working on a solar map so that the state can meet targets set under the Jharkhand Solar Policy, 2015.
