TERI & Shakti Foundation Report on Rooftop Solar: Perspective of Discoms

The government of India has set an ambitious target of 175 GW of installed capacity of renewable energy (RE) by 2022, including 100 GW of grid-connected solar power, comprising 60 GW utility-scale solar, and 40 GW solar rooftop. Though India has made significant progress in the implementation of utility-scale solar projects, achieving 40 GW of solar rooftop installations is still a substantial challenge. As of December 2018, the installed capacity of solar rooftop systems was approximately 3.85 GW. “The Rooftop Solar: Perspective of Discoms” by TERI and the Shakti Sustainable Energy Foundation is a study that was conducted and then formulated to highlight the current development of the ‘Solar Rooftop Programme’ in India and viewpoints of Discoms on technical, financial, operational, administrative & regulatory aspects.
