The Delhi government is now ready with the final report on the solar policy of the city. According to sources, the Solar Policy is likely to be approved by the Cabinet soon. Officials informed that the government had received several comments and suggestions from various departments and also that consultations with the Delhi Electricity Regulatory Commission (DERC) and other stakeholders were on for at least a month. Some of the suggestions were indeed valuable and we have made minor changes in the draft policy. Largely, it remains the same,” said a senior official.“The policy has been cleared by the environment department and is currently with the power department. Officials said that the chapter on “virtual metering” was the most debated and discussed of all. The virtual net metering clause in the draft policy is expected to enable every resident in Delhi with a shared rooftop to produce solar energy. We are planning to include virtual net metering into the Net Metering Regulations issued by us in 2014.But, the final outcome will be made public only once the Solar Policy is approved by the Delhi government,” said PD Sudhakar, chairperson, DERC
