The state in the northwest of India has had a comprehensive mandatory law for solar water heaters: Solar energy use has been an essential requirement in setting up new hospitals, sports complexes, swimming pools, hostels, barracks, hotels, industrial buildings in which hot water is needed to process the goods, as well as public buildings and residential buildings with a plot size of 500 m2 and above.[/ezcol_1half] [ezcol_1half_end] In 2011, the state government has also granted an indirect subsidy to residential users of Solar Water Heaters (SWH). Having come into force, the scheme allows every SWH user to receive a rebate on its electricity bill of INR 0.25 INR/kWh of electricity, capped at a maximum of INR 300 per month – independent of the age of the system[/ezcol_1half_end]
