Subsidy eligible for Solar Rooftop  

For the purpose of this component of the programme, Residential RTS plant would be the solar power system installed mainly on the roof of a residential building having an active residential power connection from the local DISCOM, and would also include installations on open contiguous land within the premises of the Residential building.

The CFA pattern for the residential sector will be as follows:

Type of residential sector CFA (as percentage of benchmark cost or cost discovered through competitive process whichever is lower ) Residential sector (maximum up to 3 kW capacity ) 40 % of benchmark cost**

Residential sector (above 3 kW capacity and up to 10 kW capacity)*40 % up to 3 KW Plus 20% for RTS system above 3 kW and up to 10 kW

Group Housing Societies/Residential Welfare Associations (GHS/RWA) etc. for common facilities up to 500 kWp (@10 kWp per house), with the upper limit being inclusive of individual rooftop plants already installed by individual residents in that GHS/RWA at the time of installation of RTS for common activity.

20 % *The residential sector users may install RTS plant of even higher capacity as provisioned by respective State electricity regulations; however, the CFA will be limited up to 10 kWp capacity of RTS plant.

** Benchmark cost may be different in General Category States/UTs and Special Category States/UTs i.e., North Eastern States including Sikkim, Uttarakhand, Himachal Pradesh, Jamu and Kashmir, Lakshadweep, and Andaman and Nicobar Islands. CFA shall be on benchmark cost of MNRE for the state/ UT or lowest of the costs discovered in the tenders for that state/ UT, whichever is lower
