Gujarat Residential Solar Rooftop Yojana
All the beneficiaries shall register their application through GEDA registered approved impaneled vendor only to get subsidy under Gujarat solar rooftop power policy 2018.
The installed solar rooftop system must be of at-least 1 KW capacity and must have 100 sq. ft. shadow-free area / KW of the solar system.
Central govt. will provide a subsidy of 30% of the total cost and the state govt. would provide a subsidy of Rs. 10,000 / kW on solar systems installation.
In a major initiative, Govt.. of India, under the National Solar Mission has set a target of 1,00,000 MW power generation through solar energy in the country including 40,000 MW to be contributed through solar rooftops in various sectors.
In order to achieve this magnitude of capacity, Gujarat has been given the target of 8,024 MW Capacity of Solar Energy by 2021-22, out of which 3,200 MW is to be contributed by the rooftop segment.
Installation of Rooftop Solar Plants on a large scale is one of the best initiatives, as in such plants, there is no requirement for land. Energy is consumed where it is generated; there would be no element of transmission loss or wheeling loss and such plants would be in the interest of the public at large as well as State Utilities. Therefore, with a view of promoting large-scale rooftop solar systems on private residential roof-terraces, the Government has introduced a subsidy scheme for solar rooftops in the residential sector.
This Scheme shall be called “SURYA-Gujarat” (Surya Urja Rooftop Yojana-Gujarat) with the following provisions:
Target: The target for installations of solar rooftops shall be to cater to 2 lac consumers during the year 2019-20 and cumulatively 8 lac consumers by the end of the financial year 2021-22.
The system cost mentioned in the above table is inclusive of supply, installation, commissioning, comprehensive maintenance contract of 5 years of the complete solar system, bi-directional meter, and its testing charges, SMC box for the meter and the connectivity charges to be paid to the DISCOM and standard structure required to install solar PV panel on the rooftop, with a minimum surface clearance of 300 mm between the terrace surface and the bottommost edge of the panel. The cost of additional height of the structure required, if any, shall be borne by the beneficiary.
Any other charges to be paid to DISCOM , on account of requirement of change of phase if any from single to three phase, upgradation of the existing electricity distribution network , shall be borne additionally by the beneficiary, as it is not included in the discovered cost referred in the table above.
If the Applicant is a single-phase consumer of the DISCOM and intends to install a solar rooftop system having a capacity that necessitates changing the phase of his existing service connection from single-phase to three-phase, in such case, the requisite charges for enhancement of the phase from single to three-phase shall be borne by the consumer being part of the system strengthening, and not included in the discovered cost per kW.
