  16. 16. Appendix 1: SUMMARY OF POLICY REGIMES UNDER RAJASTHAN SOLAR POLICY 2011Setting up of Solar Power Plants in Rajasthan for direct sale to Discoms ofRajasthan.The State will promote setting up of solar power projects for direct sale to Discomsof Rajasthan. The total capacity under this category will be distributed equallybetween SPV and CSP based power plants.The total maximum capacity under this category forPhase-1 (up to 2013): 200MWPhase-2 (2013-2017): 400MW (additional)Selection of these Solar Power Projects shall be through tariff based competitivebidding process.The minimum allocation is 5MW and maximum 10MW for Solar PV.The minimum allocation is 5MW and maximum 50MW for Solar Thermal.(With Gujarat State expecting only 25%-35% of its allocated projects to be completedon time; we will see a similar trend in Rajasthan. But since many will have alreadygone through the learning phase the success % could be higher than 40% but will beless than 75%).
  17. 17. (NVVN’s reverse bidding has failed to excite the global solar community. Hopefullythe industry and the government will learn the lessons and we may see a much bettertariff rate in Rajasthan bidding process).Utility Grid Power Projects for Captive use /Direct sale to 3 rd Party/States otherthan Rajasthan through Open Access for promotion of investment in RajasthanSolar Power Producers are allowed to set up Solar Power Plants of unlimitedcapacity for captive use or sale of power to 3 rd party/States other than Rajasthan.(Will these solar developers be able to sell RECs in the open market? If not; howmany 3rd party sales are we expecting in solar with a per unit price of aboveRs.10~Rs. 12)Setting up of Rooftop PV and other Small Solar Power Plants connected to LT/11kVGrid:(i) The Rajasthan State will promote deployment of Roof Top and Other Small SolarPower Plants as per guidelines of MNRE.(ii) The State will promote setting up of small solar power plants connected at 11kVgrid of 1 MW capacity each for direct sale to State Discoms of Rajasthan. The totalcapacity under this category will be 50 MW. The selection of the projects will bethrough tariff based competitive bidding process.Utility Grid Power Projects for sale through RE (Solar) Certificate Mechanism:The State will promote Solar Power Producers to set up Solar Power Plants ofunlimited capacity for sale through RE (Solar) Certificate mechanism. The Powergenerated from these power projects shall be purchased by Discoms of Rajasthan atPooled Cost of Power Purchase as determined by the appropriate Commission fromtime to time. The Solar Power Producers will sell RE (Solar) Certificates as per theregulations/orders of appropriate Commission.
  18. 18. Setting up of Solar Power Plant for promotion of manufacturing facilities in theState.The State will promote Solar Power Producers to set up Solar Power Plants alongwith Solar PV manufacturing plants in Rajasthan. The target under this categorywill be 200 MW up to 2013.Those Solar Power Producers who establish SPV manufacturing plants (thin filmtechnology modules or crystalline technology modules involving processing fromwafers stage) of minimum 25 MW per annum capacity in Rajasthan will be eligiblefor sanction of SPV based Solar Power Plant. The capacity allocation formanufacturing plant will be as follows:-For more than 25 MW but less than 50 MW; capacity power plant allocation is 10MW50 MW and above 20 MW; capacity power plant allocation is 20MW(In a new industry like solar; we have seen companies starting with a manufacturingcapacity of 10MW -12MW but not 25MW. The equipment cost does go up higherwhile moving from 10MW to 25MW. But what hurts the most is the working capital,the labor and the ability to sell in the market).Off-Grid and Decentralized Solar Plants1. The State will also promote decentralized and off-grid solar applications,including hybrid system as per guidelines issued by MNRE to meet variouselectrical and thermal energy requirements.Some of the major applications of solar thermal technologies include solar waterheaters, solar cooling systems, air drying, steam cooking, power generation,sterling engine.
  19. 19. The off grid photovoltaic applications include solar PV home lighting, policestations, communication and lighting, Small powered looms, solar inverter, solarPV pumps, powering computers in schools, Small milk chilling plants, refrigerationfor medicine in primary health centers and Hybrid systems for Powering telecomtowers etc. The off-grid solar applications shall be promoted for replacement ofdiesel based generators sets. Guidelines and incentives issued by MNRE from timeto time shall be followed in State for promotion of decentralized and off-grid solarapplications.Solar ParksThe Rajasthan State will develop Solar Parks of more than 1000 MW capacity in identified areas of Jodhpur, Jaisalmer, Bikaner and Barmer districts in variousstages.LandThe allotment of land to the Solar Power Projects will be done as per the provisionsof Rajasthan Land Revenue. The Government land required for Solar Power Plantshall be allotted to Solar Power Producer at concessional rate of 10% of the DLCrate (agriculture land).For setting up Solar Power Plant on different technology, maximum allotable landto the Solar Power Producer shall be as follows:a. SPV on thin film: 3.5 hectares per MWb. SPV on crystalline technology: 2.5 hectares per MWc. Solar Thermal (CSP)- Parabolic Trough/Tower Technology: 2.5 hectares per MWd. Solar Thermal (CSP) - Parabolic Trough with Storage Facility /Tower/OtherTechnology :
  20. 20. For PLF upto 23%; 2.5 hectares per MW. Then every 1% increase in PLF brings in0.1 hectare/MW additional land.Time Schedulea. Upto 5MW: 15 months from SLEC approvalb. 5-10MW: 24 months from SLEC approvalc. 10-25 MW: 30 months from SLEC approval“SLEC” means State Level Empowered Committee constituted under the provisionsof this Policy.Some of the points not covered above include more details on land, technical detailson grid connectivity, the list of approvals needed and the process of application.For more for details on the policy, please feel free to visit the website of RajasthanRenewable Energy Cooperation Limited: www.rrecl.com.We are assisting our clients with the following services:1. Govt/Private Solar specific Land assistance and allotment in Rajasthan2. Approvals facilitation & Project Registration3. Special Consultancy Services for Renewable Energy Certificates Markets (REC).This is an upcoming and most attractive route for Solar Power Developers. We havethe rich experience of working on more than 100MW of Solar Projects at IEX (IndianEnergy Exchange for our Developers including Tata Power).4. EPC services
