The developers’ body has sought the power minister’s intervention to withdraw the restriction of 10 kW capacity for net metering under the recently notified Electricity (Amendment) Rules, 2020, saying the provision will prevent high-load industrial consumers from switching to solar.
It has been a rocky year for installers with issues like availability of modules from Chinese suppliers, restricted construction due to local lockdowns, and uncertainty over import duties. Going forward, the market could see a dramatic rebound if net-metering is allowed with a current cap of 1 MW and re-introduced in the states that have shifted to gross-metering.
Uttar Pradesh New and Renewable Energy Development Agency (UPNEDA) has invited bids to set up an aggregate 25 MW capacity of grid-connected rooftop solar systems at government/semi-government buildings in the state. The systems—in individual capacities of 25 kWp to 500 kWp—are to be installed under RESCO model on gross-metering basis. Bidding closes on August 12.
