From now onwards, government will put in place a warranty clause in renewable energy projects to ensure that the infrastructure is maintained and repaired to ensure functionality, the Lok Sabha was informed. Replying to questions, Power Minister Piyush Goyal said governments in the past had not given importance to the aspect of warranty but but the present regime will put in place a clause of five-year warranty for maintenance and repair of infrastructure of renewable energy projects.
He said the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy is implementing important programmes such as the national biogas and manure management programme, unnat chulha programme, bio gas (off grid) generation programme, biomass gasifiers programme and remote village electrification programme. It is also disseminating solar lights and solar cookers for meeting cooking, heating and power needs in the remote and rural areas of the country.
