Rajasthan has one of the best solar insolation in the world
The State has large tracts of flat, undeveloped land
Rajasthan is India's leading state in tapping wind energy for power generation. The wind energy potential in the state is estimated to be about 5400 MW. A total of 3065.55 MW wind power capacity has been installed as on December 2014.
Rajasthan shines on the solar map of India with 300-330 clear sunny days comparable to deserts of California, Nevada, Colorado and Arizona. Within the state the districts such as Barmer, Bikaner, Jaisalmer, Jodhpur are the key regions with best solar radiation. Rajasthan is endowed with two critical resources that are essential to solar power production: high level of solar radiation (6-7 kWh/ m2/ day) and large tracts of relatively flat, undeveloped land. These factors were key contributors to the state receiving maximum share of 873 MW out of 1,100 MW allocations (79.36%) in phase-I of Jawahar Lal Nehru National Solar Mission (JNNSM). Under the second phase of JNNSM 355 MW has been allotted to Rajasthan out of 750 MW. The total installed capacity of 866.60 MW has been established in the State as on December, 2014.
The main source for biomass energy in the State of Rajasthan is Mustard Husk and Julie Flora. State Government has even issued 'Policy for Promoting Generation of Electricity from Biomass 2010' for encouraging investments in the sector. Biomass based power projects with capacity of 99.30 MW have been commissioned as on December, 2014.
State's Plan for Augmenting Industrial Power
With firm steps to augment availability of power for industrial, commercial, domestic and agricultural consumption, Rajasthan has a power generation capacity of over 16000 mw, with 3500 mw capacity under construction and an additional 34,243 mw sanctioned for the 13th Plan (2017-22).
Rajasthan has signed MoUs for setting up of a cumulative generation capacity of 32000 MW in the solar sector.
