India's Karnataka State Soon to Unveil New Wind Energy Policy

The government of India's Karnataka state will introduce a new policy for the wind sector in about two months, according to statements by government officials.

Karnataka is a state in Southwest India. The capital and largest city is Bangalore.

Officials said the new regulations were needed as the state's renewable energy policy did not exclusively cover the wind energy segment, even though Karnataka has considerable wind power potential.

The state government also plans to revise its solar energy policy to include incentives for rooftop solar plants and solar-powered water pumps. A technical committee has already been established to make a draft of the planned policy changes for solar power in a month. It will also work on filling the gaps in Karnataka's solar energy policy, where necessary.
