Mukhyamantri Solar Power Program
The Chief Minister Solar Power Program allows for free installation of rooftop solar PV systems for Delhi residents who wish to adopt solar power. The state government also offers a generation-based incentive (GBI) of Rs. 2/kWh on solar generation for a three-year period from the financial year (FY) 2016-17 to FY 2018-19 under the Delhi Solar Policy. The GBI is disbursed on an annual basis by power distribution companies (DISCOMs).
The Mukhyamantri Solar Power Program mainly aims to provide the necessary and required impetus to solar power and its adoption in Delhi. As per Mercom reports, Delhi has an overall rooftop solar capacity of over 105 MW.
