New Delhi: The Delhi government's power department today (news dated 18th June 2017) said it has opened the registration process for installation of rooftop solar power plants in the city, as it aims to tap one GigaWatt of green energy by the year 2020.
"The registration process has been opened for residents of Delhi in the residential, institutional and social sector categories under the city government's solar policy of 2016 and Delhi Electricity Regulatory Commission's (Net Metering for Renewable Energy) Regulations 2014," a senior official said.

The generation-based incentive (GBI) of Rs two per unit is also there for the residential category, the official said.
The Indraprastha Power Generation Company Ltd (IPGCL) has empanelled vendors for solar photo-voltaic installations.
Earlier this month, Lt Governor Anil Baijal had directed the power department to prepare a standard operating procedure(SOP) and a roadmap for promoting installation of solar power panels in the city.
The Delhi Solar Policy, which aims at the mass adoption of solar power in the city, was notified on September 27, 2016.
The highlights of the policy includes a generation-based incentive for three years.
