MNRE asks Haryana Government to treat every solar installation important
With around 1,050 MW of open access solar installation projects being allocated to the state, the MNRE has asked the government to honor all the allocations made to the solar parks and projects and treat them as sacrosanct. This decision was made after one of the solar providers from the state raised their concern of open access projects being canceled due to constant updates in regulations. These newly imposed conditions lead to considerable losses for developers allowing them to cancel ongoing projects.
The letter of concern states that the hurdles created by the state DISCOMs and lack of support from the government are not only losing the investor’s money but also their confidence to invest in such projects. These lose include costs like land acquisition, infrastructure, and components. The letter further states that with DISCOMS were taking advantage of their position and denying signing for the connection agreement of Long-Term Open Access (LTOAs) to solar power parks and projects allocated by the Haryana VidyutPrasaran Nigam Limited (HVPNL).
