Government has put in place a centralised facility which will enable consumers to apply online for installation of solar rooftops on their premises.
“We have provided for an online facility where consumers can apply for solar rooftops based on requirements and space available with them,” a senior official said. “The consumers, including individuals (residential), commercial, industrial or public institutions, can apply online. After that, service providers will approach (consumers) to provide services.” Given lack of clarity on how to go about installation of solar rooftops, many consumers have shown little interest. The official said, “In oder to bridge this communication gap between the consumer and service providers, this centralised facility has been provided by the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy Ministry.”
