In October 2019, Haryana Power Generation Company Limited floated a tender for three grid-connected solar PV projects of a total capacity of 57 MW. The projects, to be developed on a build-operate-transfer basis, will be set up at various power generation stations of the company.
In the same month, The Haryana Electricity Regulatory Commission approved the installation of grid-connected solar-powered tube well pumps in the state following a petition filed by Uttar Haryana Bijli Vitran Nigam Limited and Dakshin Haryana Bijli Vitran Nigam. The pilot project involves the installation of 468 solar pumps totalling around 2.9 MW in capacity. The projects are expected to be installed at 11 kV agricultural feeders at Biana in Karnal district and Marupur in Yamunanagar district. The pumps, which will be installed under the capex model, are expected to receive a subsidy under the KUSUM programme.
