Karnataka’s Pro Bono Solar Policy:

CleanMax commissioned the first solar farm in the state of Karnataka in March 2016, in a place called I.d.halli, which is located about 150 kms from Bangalore. This location is selected partly because it has some of the highest solar radiation in the state of Karnataka.

Karnataka’s solar policy, which came out in 2014, is the most favorable solar policy for open access power in India because the policy gives 10 year exemption for all grid charges on open access solar power. So, it waives all transmission charges, wheeling charges, banking charges. It even waives cross-subsidy surcharge, which is normally levied on any kind of third-party sourcing of open access power. It also means that corporates can enter into simple third-party Power Purchase Agreements or PPAs for Power without any kind of shareholding in SPV, or any kind of shareholding requirement at all.
