Guidelines for off-grid and decentralized solar applications and rooftop and other small solar power plants
The guidelines for off-grid and roof-top solar applications under Jawaharlal Nehru National solar Mission launched by Union New & Non Renewable resources minister Dr. Fahrooq Abdulla.
The objectives of this guidelines are: to promote off-grid applications of solar energy (both SPV and Solar Thermal) for meeting the targets et in the Jawaharlal Nehru National Solar Mission for Phase-1; to create awareness and demonstrate effective and innovative use of solar systems for individual/community/institutional/industrial applications; to encourage innovation in addressing market needs and promoting sustainable business models; to provide support to channel partners and potential beneficiaries, within the framework of boundary conditions and in a flexible demand driven mode; to create a paradigm shift needed for commoditization of off-grid decentralized solar applications; to support consultancy services, seminars, symposia, capacity building, awareness campaigns, human resource development, etc; amd to encourage replacement of kerosene and diesel, wherever possible.
