Punjab doing well on renewable energy front, says IREDA chief

October 31, 2015

Enthused by the rapid progress made by Punjab in the field of renewable energy, the Indian Renewable Energy Development Agency (IREDA) has decided to set up its first-ever sub-office at the Punjab Energy Development Agency (PEDA) building here, for helping finance solar power schemes.

IREDA, which was granted the status of Mini Ratna by the Government of India earlier this year, has also lauded the state government’s efforts in promoting not just solar power, but also the use of biomass for generating renewable energy. Besides attracting huge investment in the solar power sector, the state is also drawing considerable interest in biomass-based power generation.
