The Delhi government has recently opened registration process for installation of rooftop solar power plants in the city in a bid to tap 1GW of green energy by the year 2020.

A senior official associated with Delhi government’s power department speaking to PTI said “The registration process has been opened for residents of Delhi in the residential, institutional and social sector categories under the city government’s solar policy of 2016 and Delhi Electricity Regulatory Commission’s (Net Metering for Renewable Energy) Regulations 2014.”

Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE) will provide 30% central finance assistance on the cost of rooftop solar plant under the scheme. Generation based incentive (GBI) of Rs. 2 per unit is also there for residential category reports PTI.

Indraprastha Power Generation Company Ltd (IPGCL) has enlisted vendors for installation of rooftop solar in the city.

Early this month Lt. Governor Anil Baijal directed the power department to prepare a standard operating procedure (SOP) as well as a roadmap to promote installation of solar power panels in the city.
