After consistently failing in procuring power through renewable energy sources
Delhi Electricity Regulatory Commission has invited suggestions and feedback from stakeholders on a proposal to introduce net metering for rooftop solar power generation as per guidelines laid down by the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy. The commission claims that, with about 300 sunny days in Delhi a year and around 30 lakh households, Delhi has more than 700 sq km of built-up area for installation of photo-voltaic systems.
The Delhi Electricity Regulatory Commission (DERC) has decided to give relief to VIP areas under the New Delhi Municipal Council. Such VIP areas will have to pay less for electricity from June to August. The decision was taken before the DERC was to start public hearings for determining power tariff in the city.
