The renewable energy industry, especially utility-scale solar and wind energy projects, received a small relief, in the form of permission to restart construction work on ongoing projects, as well as fresh projects possibly, from April 20 onwards. In an order dated April 15, signed by the Union Home Secretary, the order laid down the new rules of engagement for managing under the lockdown in force. The lockdown had been extended to May 3 earlier by the Prime Minister in his speech to the nation on April 14.
According to Mr. K.R. Harinarayan, Founder and CEO, U-Solar Clean Energy Solutions Pvt. Ltd: “Definitely challenges are expected once operations begin on 20th April, including the availability of manpower and material transport & delivery for project engineering activities. In order to address these challenges, U-Solar is preparing by training our staff both on-site as well as the corporate HQ with our Health & Safety Handbook based on WHO’s health guidelines.
