In February 2019, MNRE had come up with the Phase-II scheme for solar rooftop and it has been decided to implement the programme by making the DISCOMs and its local offices as the nodal points for implementation of the RTS programme. DISCOMs will play a key role in expansion of RTS as DISCOMs are having a direct contact with end user and they provide approval for installation, manage the distribution network and have billing interface with rooftop owner.

Government of Gujarat via its notification number SLR-11/2015/401/B1 dated 5th August 2019 published the scheme called “SURYA-Gujarat” (Surya Urja Rooftop Yojana-Gujarat) with a target for installation of solar rooftop system in 8 lakhs consumer by the end of financial year 2021-21.

To support DISCOM in meeting the objective and responsibilities under the scheme, a major effort is massive consumer awareness campaigns which result in aggregating the solar rooftop demand and fast-tracking the entire process of solar system.

Under the Indo-German technical cooperation, Government of Germany is cooperating with India and has commissioned a project through the German Climate Technology Initiative (DKTI). The project Indo-German Solar Energy Partnership – Photovoltaic Rooftop Systems (IGSP-PVRT) is financed by German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development and implemented by GIZ in partnership with Ministry of New and Renewable Energy, Government of India.

There are two major activities under the project (a) Development of publicity and awareness material (b) Expert support for disseminating information and support DISCOMs for implementation and upscaling of solar rooftop.

Accordingly, GIZ in coordination with MNRE is releasing service contract to provide consultancy and implementing support to GUVNL for Grid Connected Solar Rooftop scheme-Phase II.
