Net Meter in Delhi

Net Meter in Delhi

The Indian capital of New Delhi is one of the most polluted cities not only in India, but the whole wide world. Though the government is taking strict action to promote rooftop solar by mandating it for government buildings and facilities, not much success has been achieved in the overall rooftop solar installation numbers. Delhi aims to generate 2000 MW of solar energy by 2025 and is also trying to lift up rooftop solar power generation. The Renewable Energy Service Company model or RESCO mode as it is popularly known as is expected to generate an aggregated demand of 40 MW. The aggregation program is expected to benefit consumers like residential, schools, hospitals, and municipal segments.
