Subsidy for Solar Energy Systems in India

Solar Power in India is generating huge excitement with falling prices of Solar Power and government incentives under the JNNSM.However Subsidy of Home and Small Commercial Solar Energy Systems has not been big enough.Unlike Western Countries which are shifting their government subsidies towards smaller solar rooftop systems,the Indian government is supporting even larger solar panel  plants.This will lead to only large investors,utilities and companies being left in the fray and lead to lesser competition.Also there is no support for rooftop solar which will help to broad base the reach of solar energy.A Policy which helps distributed solar like Germany will do much more to boost solar in the country than supporting massive solar plants that will only help large companies making the most of the taxpayer subsidies. Note Delhi is the only state in India which is giving primacy to rooftop solar systems and is in the process of announcing a capital subsidy soon.The reason may be that Delhi mostly consists of urban homes and they have little option.However there is a subsidy available for small home solar power systems though it is difficult to get and only possible for large corporates till now.

Solar Subsidy only possible if you get it done  through a MNRE Empaneled Solar Installer

The Subsidy System in India is such that you can get the solar subsidy for your home system of solar panels only if you get it done through a Solar Integrator who is empanelled with the MNRE and has rating from CRISIL.To get a solar subsidy by yourself is highly cumbersome and not worth the effort.The whole system like other government procedures is mired in red tape and is totally opaque.You can get a subsidy  as the owner of the Project but you have to first approach the State Renewable Energy Dev Agency, fill in an application with a whole host of documents ,Drawing of the
location, Copy of Technical Details.This means in simple words that you can’t do it

What is the Amount of Solar Subsidy

For 2011-2012 ,The Solar Subsidy for a Photovoltaic System is 30% of the Benchmark Cost that is fixed Every Year by The Ministry.

1) With Battery Storage Rs.81 out of  the  of Rs.270/Watt

2) Without  Battery Storage Rs.57 out of benchmark cost of Rs.190/Watt

Additional Conditions

a) Capital subsidy of 90% of the benchmark cost, would be available for special category states, viz. NE, Sikkim, J&K, Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand. In addition, it would be extended for setting up only stand alone rural solar power plants / packs (both PV and thermal) in remote and difficult areas such as Lakshadweep, Andaman & Nicobar Islands, and districts on India’s international borders

b) There would be a provision for channel partners, operating in the market mode to access a combination of capital subsidy and a low cost interest for the end consumer, provided they can tie up with a lending institution

c) For the year 2010-11, the benchmark price for photovoltaic systems with battery back-up support is considered as Rs.300/- per Wp. In case of the systems, which do not use storage battery such as water pumping systems, the installed PV system cost is considered as a maximum of Rs.210 per Wp

List of Solar Installers in India List accredited by the Ministry for Off-Grid and Decentralized Solar Applications under JNNSM

A Company that is “Empanelled” with MNRE as “System Integrator”, they can “Directly” claim the subsidy on clients behalf.The Rating of the Company by CRISIL does not affect the Subsidy as a Company can be registered with MNRE only if it has got sufficient rating from CRISIL/ICRA

  29. Sneha Shah

    Mr. Prathap,

    Getting solar subsidy for rooftop of homes is barely impossible in India. Though rooftop subsidy is allowed for residences, however it involves lot of paperwork and details and is practically impossible to get in India with so much bureaucracy involved. As far as i know it is only happening for government organizations.

  35. Sneha Shah

    Hi Amit,
    For private purpose there is no subsidy from the govt. However if you go through a registered vendor/ installer he may pass on some subsidy to you that he gets from the Governmnet.

    i want to instal solar roof for my home including air condition tube light fan tv refregerator cost and subcidy in telangana state hyderabad

  37. Sneha Shah

    Hello Majeed,

    A rooftop unit can cost upto INR 1 lakh for 1 KV system in India. 1 KV system is capable of generating 150 units of power on a monthly basis (depends on your power consumption). Though MNRE provides 30% capital subsidy on capital expenditures for rooftop solar systems for both commercial and residential entities for systems up to 100 kW,
    getting solar subsidy for rooftop of homes is barely impossible in India. Though rooftop subsidy is allowed for residences, however it involves lot of paperwork and details and is practically impossible to get in India with so much bureaucracy involved. As far as i know it is only happening for government organizations.
