As per Sumita Misra, Director- HAREDA (Haryana Renewable Energy Department Agency), in a statement that PunjabNewsline published on 20 February 2007, these projects of renewable energy would be environment friendly as well as help reduce power cuts in peak hours.

Hooda said, with energy being the most vital part for the development of various businesses in the country, his government wanted to support this sector by launching several projects. The initial step in this direction was the announcement of the policy in November 2005. Encouraging electricity generation via renewable sources of energy was the focus of this policy, which called for private investors to launch renewable energy projects in Haryana.
