Major thrust has been given to provide facilities to the private developers by PEDA for the development of renewable energy projects in the state. New and Renewable Sources of Energy Policy-2012  (NRSE) has been formulated and approved recently by the state govt. for implementation in the state, which provides for a greater degree of private sector participation in the development of the renewable energy potential in the state.
