Centre offers Rs 86 lakh solar energy subsidy to admn | Chandigarh Information
Chandigarh: The central government has granted the UT administration a grant of 86 lakh for the installation of solar panels on the roofs of residential buildings for the second phase.
However, the amount only applies to systems up to 10 kilowatts, which means that large houses do not receive any subsidies. The grant to institutions is also closed. You must bear the full cost of installing the solar modules.
Now installing up to 3 kilowatts of solar panels on a residential property, the property owner receives a 40% grant from the Chandigarh Renewable Energy Science and Technology Promotion Corporation (Crest) administration. From 3 kilowatts to 10 kilowatts, the owner receives a 20% subsidy from the UT according to central government guidelines.
In another important decision, the applicant does not have to go to the administration to receive the subsidy amount after paying the selected provider the full money for the installation of the solar panel. The applicant only has to pay their fee to the seller and the UT pays directly.
According to the administration, over 3,000 buildings have solar panels on their roofs, which include both commercial and residential buildings in various sectors. In addition, Chandigarh currently generates around 37.51 MW of energy from solar panels.
Applicants who have no problems: Dalai
Debendra Dalai, Chairman of the Board of Directors of Crest, UT Administration, said, “We have now received the second phase grant that residents receive for installing solar panels. Files for installations have already reached the department. “We are now paying the subsidy amount directly to the seller, which is a problem-free exercise for the applicant. As the installation of solar panels has become popular, the subsidy has been discontinued for a capacity of more than 10 kilowatts, ”he said
