Government of Rajasthan has already issued a Policy for harnessing Renewable Energy in Rajasthan in year 2004. Based on the progressive views adopted in past five years in respect of solar generation under this Policy, Rajasthan State is in the advanced stage of preparedness for installation of large scale Grid Interactive Solar Power Plants in next 5 to 10 years.
Headway Solar (P) Ltd. is a Solar Consultancy company based in India. Headway Solar has an experienced team of PV Solar Power Plant Consultants in India. Apart from being Solar Power Plant consultants, Headway Solar provides complete range of Solar Products and Services.
Highlights of the Rajasthan Solar Policy 2011 as explained by Headway Solar (P) Ltd. are as follows:

Setting up of Solar Power Plants in Rajasthan for direct sale to Discoms of Rajasthan:
The Rajasthan State will promote setting up of solar power projects for direct sale to Discoms of Rajasthan. The total capacity under this category will be distributed equally between SPV and concentrated solar energy based power plants. The total maximum capacity
under this category for phase-1 (up to 2013) and phase-2 (2013-2017) would be as follows:
-Phase-1(up to 2013)
Maximum Capacity to be developed 200 MW
Phase-2 (2013 -2017)
Maximum Capacity to be developed 400 MW (Additional)
Selection of these Solar Power Projects shall be through tariff based competitive bidding process. The State Government may undertake the review of targets mentioned above as and when the need arises in view of any technological breakthrough resulting in substantial decrease in cost of Solar Power generation.
B) Setting up of 1 MW Rooftop Solar Power Plants
The State will promote setting up of small solar power plants connected at 11 kV grid of 1 MW capacity each for direct sale to State Discoms of Rajasthan. The total capacity under this category will be 50 MW. The selection of the projects will be through tariff based competitive bidding process. Allocation for Solar Power Plant for promotion of manufacturing facilities in the State.
The Rajasthan State will promote Solar Power Producers to set up Solar Power Plants along with Solar Photovoltaic manufacturing plants in Rajasthan. The target under this category will be 200 MW up to 2013. This will result in establishment of 500 MW per annum of SPV manufacturing capacity in the State.
Those Solar Power Producers who establish SPV manufacturing plants (thin film technology modules or crystalline technology modules involving processing from wafers stage) of minimum 25 MW per annum capacity in Rajasthan will be eligible for sanction of SPV based Solar Power Plant.
The capacity allocation for manufacturing
Manufacturing Plant and Capacity per year allocation for SPV based Solar Power Plant :
1. More than 25 MW but less than 50 MW – 10 MW SPV allocation
2. 50 MW and above – 20 MW SPV allocation
The selection of developers shall be through tariff based competitive bidding. The Solar Power Producer will be required to source SPV modules from their own manufacturing unit established in Rajasthan.
C) Deposit increased from Rs. 25000/- to Rs.50000/-
The Solar Power Producer will deposit an amount of Rs. 50000/- per MW with RREC towards processing fee, which shall be non-refundable. The service taxes etc. shall also be payable extra as applicable from time to time.
