India installed 2,520 MW of rooftop solar in the twelve months ending June


India has installed a cumulative rooftop solar capacity of 10,221 MW as of June 30, 2022, with 2,520 MW added during the twelve months ending June 30, 2022. The cumulative installed capacity includes 2,726 MW of commercial, 5,542 MW of industrial, and 1,952 MW of residential PV, according to Bridge To India‘s Solar Rooftop Map 2022 June.

The capital expenditure (Capex) model, wherein consumers own the system, accounts for 7,628 MW of the cumulative installations. The balance of installations (2,593 MW) is in Opex (operating expenditure) mode, wherein a third-party company (developer/RESCO) owns, installs, and operates the system at consumer premises.
