  1. Govt. should have planned to install at minimum 33kv voltage level, wherein all 50mw projects have to be connected only at 11kv line. Maximum of 11kv having maximum grid-outage problem. Wherein investors shall be advesely affected due to non-transmission of produced Solar Power to grid.
    Further isolation of projects scattered as only 1mw at one GSS shall increase cost of installation and maintenance of the project.
