Indian state Uttar Pradesh eyes setting up 10.7GW of PV by 2022

It targets 8% of solar power purchase obligations by 2022.

The Uttar Pradesh New and Renewable Energy Development Agency (UPNEDA) has published the "Uttar Pradesh Solar Power Policy 2017 Draft", which intends to achieve the target of 8% solar power purchase obligations by 2022, according to Enerdata. "This means 10,700MW have to be set up since then, of which 4,300 MW are from rooftop projects, Enerdata said.

The State will support private and public entities for the development of utility-scale solar parks with a minimal capacity of 100 MW. Uttar Pradesh will also support the construction of transmission lines for stand-alone solar projects above 5 MW (at a single location, awarded through a competitive bidding process). Enerdata added that the State will promote grid-connected solar rooftop projects.
