SPRE is the latest policy instrument, which is redefined to make the existing subsidies equitable, inclusive, and effective to promote rural electrification. The policy specifically targets the installation of improved biogas technologies to meet cooking and heating needs, decentralized mini- and micro-hydro for rural electrification capable of being grid-connected when the grid is extended, SHS (10 Wp and above) and white-LED and PV based solar lights replacing poor quality of kerosene lamps. The subsidy was redefined based on per kW generated capacity in MHP projects. A subsidy amount of NRs 12,000 per household will be provided for new MHP project up to 5kW capacity; however, the subsidy will not be more than NRs 97,500 per kW generated. An additional subsidy will also be provided for the transportation of equipment and materials of the MHP project based on the remoteness of the projects.
