The Government of Haryana formulated Haryana Solar Power Policy 2014 to promote the generation of power from solar energy.

The State of Haryana is endowed with high solar radiation levels with about 320 days of clear Sun in a year. Harnessing our untapped and inexhaustible solar energy potential would therefore not only usher in the required energy mix but also reduce the emission of carbon dioxide (CO2) and other toxic gases significantly. Although at present the cost of producing solar energy is uniformly high throughout the country, it is progressively coming down and its propagation cannot be delayed any further as it offers energy security, environmental benefits besides improving grid quality and reduces transmission losses.
