The Government approved Phase-II of „Grid Connected Rooftop and Small Solar Power Plants Programme‟ in 2019 for achieving cumulative capacity of 40 GW RTS plants by 2022. In Phase-II, it has been decided to implement the programme by making the DISCOMs and its local offices as the nodal points for implementation of the RTS programme. DISCOMs will play a key role in expansion of RTS 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 programme will be implemented through DISCOMs. This will lead to ease of access for the consumers. The programme provides for Central Financial Assistance (CFA) for the household owner and Group Housing Societies to set up RTS on the rooftop of their residence/residential campus. DISCOMs should create customer friendly environment by making enabling provisions in their regulations and smooth approval process required for RTS. Since the requisite expertise on solar energy for implementation of this Programme may not be available with DISCOMs, they will be at liberty to use the services of State Nodal Agencies (SNAs) engaged in the promotion of Renewable Energy of the respective States/UTs.
CFA (Central Financial Assistance)/ Subsidy:-
The CFA has been restructured and higher CFA up to 40 % will be given for RTS systems up to 3 kW capacity. For RTS systems of capacity above 3 kW and up to 10 kW, the CFA of 40% would be applicable only for the first 3 kW capacity and for capacity above 3 kW the CFA would be limited to 20 %. The residential sectors users may install RTS plant of even higher capacity as per their requirement and the respective SERC regulation; however, the CFA would be limited for first 10 kWp capacity RTS plant.
