Maharashtra proposes the addition of 17.3 GW renewable energy capacity by 2025

The Maharashtra government has released its Unconventional Energy Generation Policy to promote the development of renewable energy projects. In the first part of the policy, the state has chalked out plans for the development of 17.3 GW of transmission system-connected renewable energy projects, by 2025. This capacity comprises 12.9 GW of solar power, 2.5 GW of wind projects, 1.35 GW of co-generation projects, 0.38 GW of small-hydro projects, and 0.2 GW of urban solid waste-based projects. Of the proposed solar capacity, 10 GW will be set up as stand-alone projects, 2 GW as grid connected rooftop solar projects, 500 MW as solar-based water supply projects, and 250 MW of solar projects for farmers. The remaining solar capacity of 150 MW will be set up as wind-solar hybrid plants, solar-powered electric vehicle charging stations, and storage-integrated solar or wind projects.
