new solar policy in the works in tamil nadu
The National Renewable Energy node agency proposed the 2018 draft Tamil Nadu solar energy policy to solicit opinions from various stakeholders.
It envisions incentives for a variety of energy generation designed to facilitate the manufacture of solar components, including solar cells, inverters, installation structures and batteries in the state.
Prior to that, chief minister Edappadi Palaniswami announced that it was reviewing the solar policy that was launched in 2012.
Under the draft policy, solar energy will be a major contributor to the future of sustainable energy in Tamil Nadu and will be the mainstream energy source in the state by 2022.
Green work the development of the sector will provide green work for a considerable number of people, and by 2022 Tamil Nadu will become an international climate leader in emerging economies.
