Objectives

  • The scheme aims to add solar and other renewable capacity of 25,750 MW by 2022 with total central financial support of Rs. 34,422 Crore including service charges to the implementing agencies.
  • The Scheme consists of three components:
    1. Component A: 10,000 MW of Decentralized Ground Mounted Grid Connected Renewable Power Plants of individual plant size up to 2 MW.
    2. Component B: Installation of 17.50 lakh standalone Solar Powered Agriculture Pumps of individual pump capacity up to 7.5 HP.
    3. Component C: Solarisation of 10 Lakh Grid-connected Agriculture Pumps of individual pump capacity up to 7.5 HP.
  • Period : Till 31.12.2022

Salient Features

  • Components A and C of the Scheme will be implemented in Pilot mode till 31st December 2019. The Component B, which is an ongoing sub-programme, will be implemented in entirety without going through pilot mode.
  • The capacities to be implemented under pilot mode for the Components A and C are as follows:
    1. Component A: Commissioning of 1000 MW capacity of ground/ stilt mounted solar or other renewable energy source based power projects
    2. Component C: Solarization of 1,00,000 grid connected agriculture pumps
