Delhi Solar Energy Policy Introduces Hybrid RESCO Model In India

The policy offers Generation Based Incentives (GBI) for five years to domestic, commercial, and industrial consumers. 

The Delhi government has launched the Delhi Solar Energy Policy 2023,  effective immediately for three years. The policy aims to install 4,500 MW of solar capacity by 2026-27, with 750 MW from rooftop solar within the state and 3,750 MW of utility-scale solar from outside Delhi.

To overcome challenges in rooftop solar adoption, the policy introduces group net metering and community solar models. Group net metering allows consumers with multiple buildings to share solar energy across properties, while community solar enables those without suitable rooftops to collectively own large solar systems.

The hybrid Renewable Energy Service Company (RESCO) model is introduced to address capital constraints, enabling consumers to adopt rooftop solar systems with less or no upfront costs.  Developers bear the capital expenditure and a tripartite agreement among the developer, Distributing company (DISCOM), and consumer ensures seamless grid integration and net-metering benefits. This is the first time a  hybrid RESCO model is envisioned in India.

The policy offers Generation Based Incentives (GBI) for five years to domestic, commercial, and industrial consumers, and a capital subsidy of ₹2000/kW, up to ₹10,000 per consumer, for residential solar projects.

Operational guidelines cover employment generation, solar component reuse and recycling, out-of-state solar procurement, and rooftop assessments. Key stakeholders, including the Apex Committee, Delhi Solar Cell, DISCOMs, and IPGCL, have defined roles in policy implementation.

The policy aims to generate 12000 new jobs in India. Overall, the Delhi Solar Energy Policy 2023 provides a comprehensive framework for solar adoption, aiming to make Delhi a leader in solar energy and contribute to a cleaner, more sustainable energy future.
