Jharkhand aims to double green power target set by Centre

If things move in the right direction, Jharkhand is going to be a hub of green power in the years to come. While the Renewable Power Obligation (RPO) of 2,005 MW comprising 1,995 MW solar power and 10 MW small hydel power set by Niti Aayog seems a mammoth target, the state in its draft policy has chosen a voluntary target of 5,000 MW solar power alone to be achieved as early as possible.

As of date, Jharkhand figures towards the bottom in the list of state and union territories in terms of meeting the RPO obligation with over 5,400 million units of cumulative shortfall till 2017-18. Some efforts were made by pushing solar water pumps and roof-top grid connected solar power plants, established on the roof top of government buildings since 2018-19 but the target still remains big in the wake of the fact that the state must convert at least 25% of its net energy consumption to green sources by 2025.
