Guidelines for Development of Solar Parks under Jawaharlal Nehru National Solar Mission
The Ministry of New & Renewable Energy (MNRE) has released guidelines for the development of solar parks under Jawaharlal Nehru National Solar Mission (JNNSM). The JNNSM is a major initiative of the Government of India with active participation from States to promote ecologically sustainable growth while addressing India’s energy security challenge. It will also constitute a major contribution by India to the global effort to meet the challenges of climate change. The solar park is a concentrated zone of development of solar power generation projects and provides developers an area that is well characterized, with proper infrastructure and access to amenities and where the risk of the projects can be minimized. Solar Park also facilitates developers by reducing the number of required approvals.
