New Delhi : NSEFI elated and bouyant on Indian Solar growth. NSEFI Chairman Pranav R Mehta has congratulated Ministry of New and Renewable Energy and the Minister Shri R K Singh on path breaking reforms and policy changes announced by the ministry in the last 3 months. Hon’ble Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi has launched a unified rooftop solar portal where consumers can avail direct benefit transfer of rooftop subsidy.

According to the new procedure upto 3 KW rooftop solar system, a subsidy of 14,588/- will be provided. For systems between 3 – 10 kW apart from 14,588/- for first 3 kW , an additional 7,294/- per kW will be provided. For systems above 10kW where there was no subsidy before will now be eligible for a fixed subsidy of 94,822/- will be provided.
