Gujarat Wind-Solar Hybrid Power Policy - 2018
In a bid to ensure optimal use of land and transmission infrastructure, the Gujarat government announced a policy to promote setting up of wind as well as solar power projects at one location. The 'Wind-Solar Hybrid Power Policy-2018' will remain in force for five years. Projects approved under this policy can avail various benefits and rebates as mentioned in the policy document for a period of 25 years or till the life of the project, as per an official release. Under the policy, developers can set up wind energy units on the land currently in use for solar power units. Similarly, a solar power project can be set up on the land being used for wind farms, it said. The transmission lines meant for the existing power projects can be utilised for the proposed renewable energy project, as per the release.
