Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE), Government of India, on 19th February 2019, approved Phase-II of 'Grid Connected Rooftop and Small Solar Power Plants Program' for achieving cumulative capacity of 40 GW RTS Plants by 2022. In Phase-II, it has been decided to implement the Program by making the DISCOMs and its local offices as the nodal points for implementation of the program. DISCOMs will play a key role in expansion of Rooftop Solar as DISCOMs are having a direct contact with end user and they provide approval for installation, manage the distribution network, and also have billing interface with rooftop owner.
The Program is primarily for promotion of Grid-connected Rooftop Solar (RTS) PV Projects in Residential and Group Housing categories by way of providing Central Financial Assistance (CFA) for the household owner and Group Housing Societies to set up RTS on the rooftop of their residence/residential campus.

|3||Part – E||>10 up to 100 kWp||38,150||YES||YES||-||YES||YES|
|4||Part – F||>100 up to 500 kWp||35,900||YES||YES||-||-||-|
No. Consumer must pay the balance amount after deducting the subsidy (eligible CFA) from the benchmark cost discovered by AEML. If any vendor is charging more price from residential consumers than the rates discovered under the Program by AEML, then consumers are advised to inform us to initiate necessary action against such vendors.
The system price, though important, should never be the only factor for deciding vendor. Customer should consider at least the following factors:
Since the system is grid connected through net metering, AEML will generate bill based upon the reading provided by the net meter installed at the consumer premises. The consumer will have to pay for the net units (total imported units minus exported solar units) only.
This is possible in very rare cases because the consumer shall be required to pay some minimum charges like fixed charges, etc. even if the consumed energy is all self-generated. However, 'Energy Charges', a major component of the monthly bill, can be reduced to zero by optimally designing and maintaining the RTS.
A simple payback period can be calculated by using rooftop calculator available at following web link: https://solarrooftop.gov.in/rooftop_calculator
All PV modules should carry a performance warranty of >90% during the first 10 years, and >80% during the next 15 years. Further, module shall have performance warranty of >97% during the first year of installation—degradation of the module below 1% per annum. The manufacturer should warrant the Solar Module(s) to be free from the defects and/or failures for a period not less than five (05) years from the date of commissioning.
Compared to most other power generating technologies, solar PV systems have very low maintenance and servicing requirements. However, suitable maintenance of a PV plant is essential to optimize energy yield and maximize the life of the system. Some of the maintenance activities typically may include but not limited to the following:
Numerous people in India have adopted reliable renewable power sources like rooftop solar for homes and workspaces. The photovoltaic cells and solar power units atop commercial and residential buildings have become a common sight in many cities and towns across the nation.
India is among the nations with the highest sustainable or renewable power generation rates. As of 2019, renewable energy sources accounted for 35 percent of the nation’s installed power generation capacity, generating 17 percent of the nation’s total electricity.
The adoption of rooftop solar panels usage is clearly on the rise. The rooftop solar panel sub-sector has grown faster than every other renewable energy sub-sector, with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 116 percent between 2012 and 2018. Further, The World Bank has pledged US$625 million in financial support for grid-connected rooftop solar projects to help India meet its ambitious objective of attaining 227 GW (it was previously 175 GW) of power generation.
Most importantly, the rate of adoption of solar power is not limited to commercial or industrial buildings. With the fast advances in technology and the growing distribution network, solar-powered houses are fast becoming the most natural choice for homeowners in every city and town.
The maximum power generation capacity is calculated based on the intensity and hours of sunshine available as well as the space available on the rooftop. Depending on the type of solar power system – on-grid, off-grid, or hybrid – a homeowner can choose the total electricity generation capacity.
Apart from being a sustainable, renewable, clean energy source, solar power comes with a number of other advantages, both for industrial and non-industrial consumers.
The reduction in cost is the most significant advantage of installing rooftop solar panels. Rooftop solar tariffs are 17% to 27% less expensive than industrial and commercial solar tariffs. This is a great benefit for both industrial users as well as individuals. Accounting for total lifespan, low running costs, and low installation costs, rooftop solar energy offers a distinct edge over conventional power generation.
Rooftop solar power units do not emit carbon dioxide or other poisonous gases. Solar energy is harvested by capturing sunlight through photovoltaic cells, so there aren’t any health hazards associated with the system. Solar energy is clean, green, and healthy.
Rooftop solar power units are highly cost-effective. There are no significant regular expenditures involved. With regular cleaning and maintenance from time to time, solar power units are easy to install and keep running. Rooftop units typically have a 25-year life expectancy, and this makes their installation an excellent investment. In fact, Adani’s asset management technology monitors the health and maintenance of installed solar panels, so a consumer can be at ease at all times.
India is in the most perfect geographical location for solar energy. Most parts of the country obtain plenty of tropical sunlight. With over 300 bright days and clear skies each year, the conditions for harvesting solar energy in the country is just about the most ideal in the world.
Because the system is installed on the roofs of commercial and residential buildings, it does not require a great amount of land or space. This makes solar energy both viable and sustainable. The added benefit of solar rooftop systems is the higher resale value that one can expect from solar cells.

In a grid-connected rooftop or small solar photovoltaic (SPV) system, the DC electricity generated by solar panels is converted to AC power by a power conditioning unit or an inverter and then transmitted to the grid.
In general, a 1 kW rooftop system requires 10 square meters of shadow-free space. However, depending on the effectiveness of the solar modules, their positioning, and other factors, the actual area required may vary.
Rooftop solar PV systems can be built on any sort of roof that can support the weight of the solar power units.
A 1 kWp solar power plant may generate 4 to 5.5 units per day on a clear sunny day.
No, the RTS’ daily energy generation is reliant on multiple factors, including temperature and solar irradiation, which may not be consistent.
No. When solar modules are exposed to sunlight and the outside environment for a significant amount of time, they start to lose their generation capacity. This is referred to as deterioration.
Consumers are urged to pay just the rates set by the DISCOMs (L1 rates). If any vendors charge a higher price than the rates set by DISCOMs for domestic users, consumers will be intimated.

DISCOM will create a charge based on the reading provided by the net meter installed at the consumer’s premises because the system is grid-connected through net metering. Only the net units (total imported units minus exported solar units) will be charged to the consumer.
CAPEX Model: In this model, the consumer owns the system and is responsible for its costs. The entire system is owned by the third-party project developer in the RESCO model. The consumer only purchases the generated energy by paying a monthly fee determined by the Power Purchase Agreement (PPA). The developer is also responsible for O&M over the system's lifetime (25 years).
The rooftop solar system can be deployed by the electrical customer under any framework, such as net or gross metering. So, if you have an electrical connection in your name, obtain permission from the owner to use the roof for solar rooftop installation.
