Roof top solar projects supported by HAREDA
Even at the existing price levels, solar PV is a cost economic solution, when compared to Diesel Generator (DG) sets used by the industries for power back-up. The Haryana Renewable Energy Development Agency (HAREDA) recently launched the Solar Rooftop Scheme to motivate commercial and industrial establishments like hotels, hospitals and housing complexes to replace DG sets installed for captive requirement during load shedding. Under this scheme, HAREDA approved 2 standalone solar PV projects of 100 kW each in Gurgaon to demonstrate applications of solar PV for industry power back-up. The State Government has agreed to offer financial assistance of Rs 75 lakh for each project.
