Go Solar in New Delhi

Delhi Solar Policy – Effective from 1st April 2018 to 2nd April 2022

  1. Delhi Solar Energy Policy, 2016 would be applicable for any solar energy generating system with a capacity of 1 kWp or more.
  2. Delhi is blessed with almost 300 sunny days and the rooftop space available for solar panels is estimated to be 31 sq. km, giving Delhi a solar energy potential of 2500 MWp (annual Generation approx. 3,500 million kWh). Of this potential, 26% is in the government/public sector, 25% in commercial/ industrial sector, and 49% in the domestic sector.
  3. Delhi is well positioned to lead India’s rooftop solar revolution and has consequently established solar generation targets of 1000 MW by 2020 (4.2% of energy consumed) and 2000 MW by 2025 (6.6% of energy consumed).
  4. For solar plants with capacity above 200 kWp, inspection by an Electrical Inspector, appointed by the Delhi Government shall be required to ensure quality, safety, and compliance before commissioning. Up to a solar plant capacity of 200 kWp, the consumer shall be responsible for the inspection and verification before commissioning.
  5. An incentive of Rs. 2.00 per unit will be paid to you on gross energy generated from your rooftop system. The minimum eligibility criteria for GBI will be 1,100 solar energy units (kWh) generated per annum per kWp. For solar plants that generate less than 1,100 units (kWh) per kWp a year, the GBI facility will not apply. The annual solar energy generation that is eligible for GBI shall be capped at 1,500 kWh per kWp, irrespective of the readings of the solar generation meter. GBI Applicability is for a period of 3 years from the date of effectiveness of “Delhi Solar Energy Policy, 2016” which was 3rd of August, 2016; and is it applicable on 1st come first serve basis.
