To overcome the miscellaneous challenges faced by solar power projects Development of solar parks & Ultra mega Solar power projects were rolled out by MNRE in 2014 with an objective to facilitate plug & play model. Large-size projects have the potential to bring down the cost of solar power.

In Accordance with this Haryana Renewable Energy Development Agency (HAREDA) has now permitted the private players to develop the Solar Parks without Central Financial Assistance (CFA). These guidelines are for the development of solar power parks by private entrepreneurs in line with Mode 6 of MNRE guidelines.

The solar park developers are required to submit their proposals to the Haryana Renewable Energy Development Agency (HAREDA) along with the detailed project report and all relevant land documents. After examining the detailed project report (DPR), a no-objection certificate for the solar park will be issued.

Once the Agency gives a nod to the program, the developer may apply for the feasibility of connecting to the Haryana Vidyut Prasaran Nigam Limited (HVPNL).

The minimum capacity of such a solar park should be 50 MW. The solar park developer should also submit the agreement to lease or the sale of a minimum of 100% of the required land along with the application.

The minimum land required for the solar parks has been set as 4 acres/MW, and the cost of development of a 50 MW solar park will be considered as ₹100 million ($136,500). The development of the solar park should be completed within 24 months from the issuance of the no-objection certificate for the solar park’s development.

The timeline for the solar parks is given below:
