Roundtable Report 6: Rooftop Solar

Industry representatives (of rooftop solar companies) need to come together and forward to put up a unified proposal to state governments suggesting the lifting of caps and limits but at the same time making it clear that there are no objections to reasonable grid support charges decided by state regulators for distribution utilities. MNRE targets have limited enforceability as the concurrent structure of electricity in India leads to conflicting objectives between Center and states. In all this, there is a need to recognize that the problems for discoms are deep and vast and the struggle to manage daily cash flows will remain a primary driving force behind all decisions that are taken by discoms.
