Mounted Megawatt scale Power Projects including free evacuation facility irrespective of the distance by the State. • Further the Independent Power Producers, who have already set up small hydro projects on the canals, shall also be motivated to set up solar power projects on the canal tops/banks allocated to them • The Government of Haryana will facilitate the lease/sub-lease of Panchayat land at reasonable rates through SUN Haryana (Saur Urja Nigam Haryana) or directly through Panchayat (as per prevailing Govt. Policy) for setting up of Solar Power Projects for minimum period of 30 years • The Solar power projects will be out of the preview of the Land Ceiling Act of the government. Rooftop Solar Projects • There is a great potential to generate solar power through installation of rooftop solar power plants in the State • The government will promote the installation of 1kWp to 1 MWp of capacity Grid connected & up to 50 kWp of capacity off-grid Solar roof-top Power Plants on the rooftops of Industries, Public and Private Institutes, Schools, Colleges, Commercial& Social Institutions/Establishments, Charitable Trust Bhawans, Hospitals and Residential Buildings etc. • For installation of rooftop solar power plants the State Government shall provide capital /generation subsidy/ incentives • A total capacity of 1600 MW rooftop solar power plants shall be added by the year 2021-22 • Some percentage capacity (to be fixed from time to time) of the setting up of ground mounted mega watt scale grid connected power plants, to meet the solar RPO shall be developed by setting up of grid connected rooftop solar power plants. For that the offers shall be invited by Renewable Energy Department, Haryana/HAREDA from the independent power producers for development of grid connected rooftop solar power plants, of capacity ranging from 250 kWp to 1 MW, on a cluster of public private buildings on the last lowest tariff discovered and conveyed by HPPC • The entire power produced by power producers who set up plants within four years from the date of notification of this policy shall be purchased by the HPPC or any entity of Haryana Govt. Alternatively, the developer can also supply/provide the power for the captive use of the premises where the system is installed along with net meter and can sell the remaining power to HPPC or any entity of Haryana Govt. on the last lowest tariff discovered and conveyed by HPPC or to third party as per HERC regulations • All maximum and extra benefits possible will be extended to Roof Top Solar Power Producers. • No permission is required from the building plan sanctioning authority for setting up of rooftop solar power plants.

However, if dedicated transmission line is required then it shall be as per procedure of ground mounted power plants. Incentives • All electricity taxes & cess, electricity duty, wheeling charges, cross subsidy charges, Transmission & distribution charges and surcharges will be totally waived off for Ground mounted and Roof Top Solar Power Projects • All new projects of MW scale generating solar energy will be treated as “Industry” in terms of Industrial Policy of the State. Thus all the incentives available to industrial units under the industrial policy from time to time, shall also be available to the solar power producers/units • Haryana Vidyut Parsaran Nigam Ltd. (HVPNL)/ Dakshin Haryana Bijli Vitran Nigam Ltd. (DHBVN)/ Uttar Haryana Bijli Vitran Nigam Ltd. (UHBVN)/ licensee shall permit solar power generated by eligible producers to be banked.
