MNRE issues second phase norms for rooftop solar programme

The Ministry of New and Renewable Energy has issued guidelines to implement the second phase of the rooftop solar programme. The government has set a target of 100,000 MW of solar power capacity in India by 2022, of which 40,000 MW is to be achieved from the rooftop solar segment. The government approved Phase-II of the project in February 2019. The second phase of the programme has two main components. Under the first component, 4,000 MW of grid-connected rooftop solar projects will be installed in the residential sector with central financial assistance. Under the second component, incentives will be provided to distribution companies based on the achievement towards initial 18,000 MW of grid-connected rooftop solar plants.
