In Jammu and Kashmir, around 20 thousand government buildings will have solar rooftop projects of 300 MegaWatt electricity capacity by 2025. Determined to produce 300 MW electricity through solar energy, the UT Government departments will have electricity supply through solar energy as the government has set a target of producing 300 MW of electricity by 2025. The rooftop solar energy projects will be executed by the Jammu and Kashmir Energy Development Agency (JAKEDA).

As of now, 27.61 MW electricity is being generated with installation of rooftop solar projects on 1900 government buildings that have been established with the help of JAKEDA and other sister concern departments.

Out of approximately 4000 MW load with Jammu Power Development Corporation Limited (JKPDCL), the load of government-related institutions including hospitals, schools, colleges, universities, defense establishments and street lights besides 22,494 registered government offices is approximately 600 MW.

Nearly 15 percent energy is consumed by the government establishments, which is annually estimated to be 3000 mn units of electricity and if only 50 percent of the energy needs are met through rooftop solar projects, the J&K government will save about 700 crore rupees every year. Reducing electricity consumption in government departments will provide relief from increasing electricity load in the UT.

The JAKEDA promotes the widespread adoption and sustainable use of all forms of renewable energy, including hydropower, solar, wind, geothermal, biomass and hydrogen energy in the pursuit of sustainable development, energy access, energy security and low-carbon emission, economic growth and prosperity.
