India : Solar energy draft policy of Goa government open to public for comments

The policy is available on the department of science & technology website, www.dstegoa.gov.in, and on the official government portal www.goa.gov.in.

Panaji: The draft of the solar energy policy prepared by the Goa energy developement agency (GEDA) is now open for suggestions and comments from the public and stakeholders.

The policy is available on the department of science & technology website, www.dstegoa.gov.in, and on the official government portal www.goa.gov.in.

“Goa is richly endowed with moderate climate and bright sunshine for almost 8-9 months a year for generating solar power. The state entirely depends on thermal energy generated in other states. Goa being eco-sensitive, no thermal energy generation is possible in the state. To attain self-reliance in power generation and promote clean source of power, solar policy is being adopted. This would result in reduction of carbon emissions, “ the policy states.

It goes on to add that the challenge before the state government is not only to meet the ever-growing demand for power, but also to progressively increase the share of renewable sources.
