Jammu and Kashmir approves 450MW rooftop target and net metering
Jammu and Kashmir has approved a draft policy to deliver 450MW of rooftop PV plants by 2022, according to consultancy firm Mercom Capital Group.
The draft law was announced back in October last year seeking to introduce net metering to the state.
The 10-year policy from the Department of Science and Technology of the government of Jammu and Kashmir will account for system sizes between 1-1000kW.
A Jammu and Kashmir Energy Development Agency (JAKEDA) official told Mercom that the policy will ease the burden on the state’s transmission and distribution network.
Last week, JAKEDA also tendered for 37.8MW of grid-connected rooftop solar.
Analyst firm Crisil recently forecast that India would hit 12GW of rooftop by 2022.
