Rajasthan becomes No 1 in RE

Gujarat has finally been left behind by its close rival Rajasthan, and given the number of projects in the pipeline, it is likely to retain the honour for quite some time.

According to data released by the Union Ministry of new and renewable energy on June 4, 2015, Rajasthan has grabbed the number one position in the country with an installed capacity of 1,167 megawatt against Gujarat´s 1,000 megawatt .

While Rajasthan is leveraging its natural advantages with a proactive policy, Gujarat´s solar sector needs to reinvent itself to catch up with the neighbouring state,¨ said Suman Kumar, President of Rajasthan Solar Association. In the last one year, Rajasthan government has inked agreements with private players to develop solar parks with a cumulative capacity of 26,000 MW.
