Highlights of the scheme:

  • The developer can apply for multiple projects of 250 Wp and a maximum of 2 MWp
  • Instead of feed in tariff (FIT) being offered, SECI will provide a capital subsidy.
  • Unlike the MNRE scheme, in this scheme the bidder quotes a consolidated cost in INR/WP. Based on this SECI will provide a capital subsidy of 30%. Furthermore the disbursement of the subsidy is linked to the performance ratio.
  • The generated power is expected to be consumed by the rooftop owner first, after which any excess power can be exported to the grid.
  • The sale of power and the negotiation of the tariff is the developer’s responsibility, unlike in MNRE where the bidders are responsible.
