Haryana already leads the nation in solar water pump usage, with government subsidies of up to 75% for farmers to install the pumps. Haryana is dedicated to expanding renewable access across industries too.

    At the event, solar industry representatives discussed challenges and opportunities. Net metering policies which allow homeowners to sell excess solar power back to the grid were raised. Representatives from the State Chapter of PHD Chamber of Commerce and Industry also attended. All recognized solar's potential role in energy security and environmental protection.

    With its Solar Homes scheme progressing and a new policy in the works, Haryana is demonstrating real momentum towards its bright solar energy future. Increased adoption will benefits its residents, businesses and for many years to come.
