National Solar Rooftop Portal launched by Hon’ble Prime Minister

The Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE), Government of India and Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH in India on behalf of the Government of the Federal Republic of Germany have signed an agreement for Indo-German Solar partnership Project (IGSEP). The objective of this project is to support the installation of the solar rooftop PV systems in the states of Gujarat, Himachal Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Jammu & Kashmir, Daman & Diu and Dadra Nagar Haveli, Uttar Pradesh, Punjab, Maharashtra, Arunachal Pradesh and West Bengal. The project IGSEP supported the MNRE in the development of the National Solar Rooftop Portal for India.

The Hon’ble Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi launched the national portal for rooftop solar, which will enable online tracking of the process of installation of rooftop solar plants, starting from registering the applications to release of subsidy in residential consumers’ bank accounts after installation and inspection of the plant. The estimated capacity under the national solar rooftop program is 4000 MW. This will be a major step towards realising the solar rooftop potential of the nation and will contribute towards India’s target to install 500 GW capacity through non-fossil fuels committed in COP-26.
