In the absence of specified construction standards, the workmanship and BOP material used in rooftop and off-grid solar systems are not consistent.

MNRE

The Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE) has invited suggestions or views for the development of construction standards for the rooftop solar and off-grid solar PV systems from all the stakeholders by June 8, 2018.

The Ministry is implementing ‘grid connected rooftop solar and small solar power plants programme’ and ‘off grid and decentralized solar applications programme’, for which it has well defined specifications for electrical/ electronic equipment.

However, at present there is no construction standards specified for rooftop and off-grid systems.

The MNRE said in a statement that, “In the absence of specified construction standards, the workmanship and BOP material used in rooftop and off-grid solar systems are not consistent.”

The Ministry further said that, a need has been felt for specifying construction standards involving civil, mechanical and electrical works for all installations including grid connected rooftop solar and off-grid systems such as solar pumps, solar streetlights, solar power packs etc to ensure the quality and reliability of such installations.
