The state government of Delhi had released the Delhi Solar Policy 2016, which is applicable for the four-year period 2016-2020. This policy is applicable for any solar energy generating system with a capacity of 1 kW or more.
The policy focuses on promoting an investment climate that enables multiple financial models, from self-owned (CAPEX) to third-party owned (RESCO) models. The promotion of solar rooftop through a combination of generation targets, regulations, mandates, and incentives is at the heart of the new Delhi Solar Policy 2016. This policy applies to all electricity consumers and all entities who construct and operate power projects in Delhi.
To achieve Delhi’s solar generation targets, the policy mandates solar installations to be completed within five years on all government-owned rooftops.
