Chandigarh: The Haryana government has waived intra-state wheeling charges, cross subsidy charges, transmission and distribution charges on the electricity generated from solar power plants in the state.
Any investor, who installs a solar power plant at any place in the state, can sell this power to any private entity within the state at mutually agreed tariff without paying these charges, an official release said here today.
It said that state government has notified the Haryana Solar Power Policy-2016 with the objective of ensuring a high trajectory of growth in the solar power sector.
Five acres of land is required for setting up of 1 MW ground mounted solar power project with an investment of about Rs five crore. The solar power produced may be purchased by the Haryana Power Purchase Centre on the tariff finalized by inviting the tenders on competitive bids.
