Tamil Nadu solar policy sets tall 9,000 MW target
Tamil Nadu government on Monday unveiled a new solar energy policy, which targets have
9,000MW of installed solar energy capacity in the state by 2023. While the state had around 2,200MW of solar
energy installed capacity till 2018 end, it needs to add 6,800MW of additional capacity in the sector over the next
Interestingly, about 40% of the additional capacity should come from the consumer (rooftop solar systems) category. This demands increased focus of the departments concerned in the state, since the past push has been for large installations. Further, while the state, on an average, had added just about 400MW of new capacity per year in the last five years, its capacity addition has to go up manifold to achieve the target
The Tamil Nadu Solar Energy Policy 2019 intends to create a framework that enables an accelerated development of solar energy in the state, which is the most urbanized and industrial in India. As per the Paris Climate Change Agreement, India has to add 100GW solar capacity by 2022.
Solar energy development will provide green jobs to a significant number of the state’s workforce and solar energy development will become available, accessible and affordable to all citizens of Tamil Nadu, with the sector expected to significantly contribute to reducing carbon and water footprint of the state, the state government said as its vision for the new policy.
