A complete of two,000 licences had been issued of which the federal government has up to now recognized almost 70 such initiatives. The means of figuring out such initiatives is taking time since every file needs to be completely studied. Sources mentioned the full tally may very well be 80.

There is no third-party interest in any of the projects identified so far,” sources say, drawing energy from a 2016 order which states that what the legislation doesn’t allow, it doesn’t prohibit both.
