Karnataka solar policy 2011-16
Karnataka has abundant potential for development of solar energy. Under the Karnataka renewable energy policy, it is envisaged that the state will have a target for achieving 126 MW of solar power up to 2013-14. This includes the power that the state is likely to get under the JNSSM. In the meantime the KERC has issued regulations for procurement of 0.25% of total power consumed, from solar resources. Government of India has also recently taken a decision that 0.25% of the total consumption should be from solar resources, which should go up to 3% by 2022. It is therefore considered necessary to have a separate solar policy, which will extended from 2011-12 to 2015-16.
