Pradhan Mantri Kisan Urja Suraksha evam Utthaan Mahabhiyan (PM-KUSUM) Scheme

Government has approved Pradhan Mantri Kisan Urja Suraksha evam Utthaan Mahabhiyan (PM-KUSUM) Scheme with an objective of increasing farmers’ income, provide reliable source for irrigation and de-dieselise the farm sector. Administrative approval of the Scheme was issued on 08.03.2019 and Scheme implementation Guidelines were issued on 22.07.2019.

  •  PM-KUSUM Scheme has three Components:
  1. Component-A for Setting up of 10,000 MW of Decentralized Grid Connected Renewable Energy Power Plants on barren land: Under this component, renewable energy based power plants (REPP) of capacity 500 kW to 2 MW will be setup by individual farmers/ group of farmers/ cooperatives/ panchayats/ Farmer Producer Organisations (FPO)/Water User associations (WUA) on barren/fallow land. These power plants can also be installed on cultivable land on stilts where crops can also be grown below the solar panels. The renewable energy power project will be installed within five km radius of the sub-stations in order to avoid high cost of sub-transmission lines and to reduce transmission losses. The power generated will be purchased by local DISCOM at pre-fixed tariff.
  2. Component-B for Installation of 17.50 Lakh stand-alone solar agriculture pumps: Under this Component, individual farmers will be supported to install standalone solar Agriculture pumps of capacity up to 7.5 HP for replacement of existing diesel Agriculture pumps / irrigation systems in off-grid areas, where grid supply is not available. Pumps of capacity higher than 7.5 HP can also be installed, however, the financial support will be limited to 7.5 HP capacity.
  3. Component-C for Solarisation of 10 Lakh Grid Connected Agriculture Pumps: Under this Component, individual farmers having grid connected agriculture pump will be supported to solarise pumps. The farmer will be able to use the generated solar power to meet the irrigation needs and the excess solar power will be sold to DISCOMs at pre-fixed tariff.
  • Central Financial Assistance (CFA)/ State Government Support:
  1. Component A:  Procurement Based Incentive (PBI) @ 40 paise/kWh or Rs. 6.60 lakhs/MW/year, whichever is less, will be provided for the first five years by MNRE to DISCOMs, for buying the power from farmers/developers.
  2. Component B & C:
    1. CFA of 30% of the benchmark cost or the tender cost, whichever is lower. State Government subsidy 30%; Remaining 40% by the farmer.
    2. In North Eastern States, Sikkim, J&K, Himachal, Uttarakhand, Lakshadweep and A&N Islands, CFA of 50%, State Government subsidy 30%, Remaining 20% by the farmer. 
  • Implementation status for 2019-20:
    • Components A and Component C will be implemented on Pilot mode for capacity 1000 MW and 1 lakh pumps during year 2019-20.
    • On successful implementation of pilot run of Components A and C, these components would be further scaled-up.
    • Capacities have been sanctioned to various State Government Agencies based on demand received from them.
    • Centralised tender has been done by EESL for discovery of price and selection of vendors under Component-B on standalone solar pumps for the year 2019-20. LoA are being issued by the State Implementation Agencies.
    • Tender/Allocation under Components A and C will be done by the implementation agency nominated by the State Governments for respective components.
