Save Uttar Pradesh Rooftop Solar Industry

The Uttar Pradesh Electricity Regulatory Commission (UPERC) had recently formulated regulation to amend the existing Solar Roof-top Net Metering Policy of 2015. The new regulation prohibits non-domestic category consumers from availing the net metering facility, as was provided in the earlier regulation of 2015.  

The new policy is completely discouraging the adoption of Solar Roof-top as it shall not be any more economical to invest in Solar Roof-top in Uttar Pradesh.

Through this regulation, UPERC is trying to eliminate competition by killing the roof-top solar net metering arrangement which has just started gaining momentum in the state while on the other hand the Central government led by Hon'ble Prime Minister of India Mr. Narendra Modi is talking about accomplishing 40,000 MW of Roof-top Solar by 2022, less than 10% has been achieved so far. It would be impossible for the central government to meet this target if the huge state like UP restricts rooftops solar installations through such regulations. 

On behalf of all solar rooftop developers in the state, we urge all the stakeholders of the Solar Industry to sign this petition and help us raise our concerns while request the Honorable Commission to allow net metering for all category customers.

We humbly appeal to all Citizens of Uttarpradesh, especially the Industry Owners, Commercial Entity owners to kindly Sign this petition and raise your voice against this restriction.
