Rajasthan to export 4,000 MW clean energy by early 2019
Rajasthan will start exporting 4,000-MW renewable energy (solar and wind) to other states within one year once an integrated power evacuation system is completed, a senior official said. Presently, a transmission line for 765-KV Bhadla-Bikaner grid sub-station (GSS) is being set in the state, which will be linked to the Green Corridor that connects Moga in Punjab to Banaskanta in Gujarat. The linking to the Green Corridor is crucial, as discoms in Rajasthan will only be able to lift a part of total solar and wind power generation once ultra mega solar projects get commissioned by March 2019. Out of 4,000 MW, the 2,255 MW Bhadla solar park, once fully commissioned, will supply 750 MW exclusively to Uttar Pradesh. Work on solar projects in Rajasthan is in progress as the zero interstate transmission charges will be applicable only for those projects that are connected to grid by December 2019, Dosi said.
