Uttar Pradesh announces a generic solar policy

The UP state government has approved a new solar policy with a target of developing 10,700 MW of total solar capacity in the state by the year 2022. 60% of this target (6,400 MW) is proposed to be developed through utility scale projects and balance 40% is planned for rooftop solar systems.  The total target has been determined so as to achieve renewable purchase obligation of 8%. The policy has some attractive provisions on paper in line with many other states. But it lacks specifics and is very generic in nature leading us to question if it will make any material difference on-the-ground.
