DISCOMs – In the net of metering
There are some challenges in adopting it, says Manu Karan, Vice-President, CleanMax Solar. Firstly, in most states an arbitrary cap usually of 1 MW on the size of rooftop solar projects to avail net-metering benefits. Secondly, Excluding HT (high tension) consumers; like commercial & industrial consumers from availing net metering. Thirdly, not allowing RESCO projects to avail net metering. Expecting customers to make large investment into solar adoption will slow the growth of rooftop solar. The government should look at introducing policies that are standardised and long term. This will reduce the scepticism and propel adoption.
