Mini Grid Policy Uttar Pradesh 2016

The State of Uttar Pradesh is endowed with vast potential of solar and bio/biomass power and the Government is making efforts to tap these resources to improve the availability of power in the State by promoting renewable power projects. As a result of sustained efforts made under the rural electrification programme, only a few census villages remain unelectrified in the State. However, a large number of rural households are still deprived of electricity. Such households can be electrified through mini-grid from locally available renewable energy sources by decentralised power generation. A comprehensive policy framework is an imperative requirement to realize this goal. Therefore, the Government of Uttar Pradesh adopts and announces the Mini-grid Policy-2016.
