Prioritize renewable energy projects: CM Gehlot

Jaipur (Rajasthan) July 3 (ANI): In a review meeting of Rajasthan Renewable Energy Corporation through video conference, Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot said that the corporation should try to achieve the target of 30,000 MW of solar power and 7500 MW of wind and hybrid energy generation for the state by 2024-25. During the meeting, the Chief Minister stressed that the State Government is moving ahead with the goal of making Rajasthan the leader in generating renewable energy. To accelerate the projects related to the development of renewable energy, the state government has implemented the Rajasthan Solar Energy Policy-2019 and Solar-Wind Hybrid Energy Policy-2019. This has given a boost to investment in renewable energy and setting up of mega solar park projects in the state. The Chief Minister underlined that the geographical conditions of the state are conducive to solar power generation and there is immense potential in the alternative energy sector. He said that Rajasthan has the potential to generate 2.7 lakh MW of solar and wind energy. This will not only make the state a big hub in the field of energy, but it will also make it possible to create huge employment opportunities. CM Gehlot said that to encourage investment in renewable energy generation, the state government has decided to allot government land at DLC rates, give complete exemption in electricity duty for the project up to 10 years, and stamp duty exemption for solar power equipment manufacturers to encourage investment in the sector.
