1.Objectives:

1.1 Whereas with a view to promote generation of power from nonconventional energy sources,
Government of Rajasthan promulgated a Policy on 11.3.1999. This Policy known as "Policy for
Promoting Generation of Power through NonConventional Energy Sources" ended on 31st March,
2004. A separate Policy was, however, issued on 4th February, 2000 exclusively for promoting
generation of electricity from wind. This Policy known as "Policy for Promotion of Electricity
GenerationfromWind"tooendedon31stMarch,2004.DuringthecurrencyofWindPolicy2000a
newPolicywaspromulgatedinApril2003forperiodupto31stMarch,2009.

1.4Andwhereas,amongthenonconventionalsourcesofenergy,Solar,Wind,MiniSmallhydelandBiomasshavegoodpotentialfor
generation of electricity in Rajasthan and after having gathered the experiences from the earlier policies and identifying the
impediments in the process of generation of electricity from nonconventional sources, State Government has decided to issue a
comprehensive Policy for generation of electricity from various sources of nonconventional energy which offers solution to various
problemsfacedbydevelopers,investorsandutilities,thisPolicyisbeingpromulgated.
