IEE: Rajasthan Renewable Energy Transmission Investment Program

Published Date: 

ADB is proposing to extend a multi-tranche financing facility to the Government of Rajasthan under the Rajasthan Renewable Energy Transmission Investment Program. The project will support evacuation of power from Western Rajasthan including the facilities coming up at the 250 MW Phase 1 of the Bhadla solar park, Jodhpur district, Rajasthan for which Rajasthan Renewable Energy Corporation (RREC) is the nodal agency.

The project activities would support cost-effective development of renewable energy resources in Rajasthan. The project will develop the transmission infrastructure to evacuate renewable energy in a reliable manner from private solar and wind power plants to be located in western Rajasthan to the national grid. It is expected that western Rajasthan could site over 4,200 megawatts (MW) of solar and wind power plants including at the Bhadla solar park over the next five years.
