The objective of this scheme is to achieve gainful utilization of the unutilized area on top of Canals and also the vacant Government land along the banks of Canals wherever available, for setting up Solar PV power generation plants for feeding the generated power to Grid and to set up a total capacity of 100 MW solar PV power projects to achieve targets set under National Solar Mission (NSM) announced by the Government of India.
Solar installations on canal tops offer dual advantage of water conservation and efficiency. It also navigates the issue of land scarcity. JREDA aims to deploy 400 MW of solar installations on canal tops. Notwithstanding the minimum capacity criteria, the canal top solar power projects with capacity lower than 2 MW are also eligible under this category.
Facilitate deployment of Canal Top Projects
• JREDA may also explore the opportunity of development of canal top projects in the PPP model with option of revenue sharing with the Government.
• JREDA may carry out a feasibility analysis to estimate the potential capacity that can be installed on the canal tops.
