Gujarat Residential Solar Rooftop (Surya Gujarat)Yojana 2022

Gujarat Residential Solar Rooftop

(Surya Gujarat)Yojana 2022:

Gujarat is a state of western coast of India and It’s bordered with Rajasthan, Maharashtra and Madhya Pradesh. Its capital city is Gandhinagar, while its largest city is Ahmedabad.

Gujarat Residential Solar Rooftop Yojana 2022 will enable people to setup / install solar panels ranging 1 KW to 10 KW on their rooftops with 30% subsidy. List of vendors under solar power policy 2018 is available at the official website

All the beneficiaries shall register their application through GEDA registered approved empanelled vendor only to get subsidy under Gujarat solar rooftop power policy 2018. The installed solar rooftop system must be of at-least 1 KW capacity and must have 100 sq.ft. shadow free area / KW of solar system. Central govt. will provide subsidy of 30% of total cost and the state govt. would provide subsidy of Rs. 10,000 / kW om solar systems installation.

Installation of Rooftop Solar Plants on a large scale is one of the best initiatives, as in such plants, there is no requirement of land. Energy is consumed where it is generated; there would be no element of transmission loss or wheeling loss and such plants would be in the interest of the public at large as well as State Utilities. Therefore, with a view of promoting large-scale rooftop solar systems on private residential roofs-terraces, the Government has introduced a subsidy scheme for solar rooftops in the residential sector.
This Scheme shall be called “SURYA-Gujarat” (Surya Urja Rooftop Yojana-Gujarat) with the following provisions:Target: The target for installations of solar rooftops shall be to cater to 2 lac consumers during the year 2019-20 and cumulatively 8 lac consumers by the end of the financial year 2021-22.

How & how much subsidy on solar can be availed?

Subsidy/Support is available from Central Government through MNRE.

The subsidy available on the installation of grid-connected solar rooftop power plants is 30% of the benchmark cost. Government institutions including PSUs shall not be eligible for the subsidy. Instead, they will be given achievement-linked incentives/awards. All residential and institutional buildings such as schools, health institutions, etc.
