The solar power sector in Gujarat is facing serious challenges with an investment of Rs 1,500 crore hanging in balance in rooftop projects, according to estimates by a clutch of solar power developers.
They made a representation to the state’s energy and petrochemicals department recently. They have claimed that more than 200 projects with installed capacity ranging from 10KWh to 1MW are on hold. They say the reason is the change in Gujarat Solar Policy in the last week of December 2020.
They have sought an extension till June 2021 for commissioning those projects which were registered during the implementation period of Gujarat Solar Power Policy 2015.
