The benefits of installing residential and commercial rooftop solar generation panels cannot be underestimated. They are a great way to save energy and to reduce electricity bills. Rooftop solar is a significant step toward combatting climate change by contributing to the “green economy”. Rooftop solar systems can be installed quickly, are efficient, have zero emissions and require minimal maintenance. Rooftop solar power operates silently and obviates costly transmission infrastructure.

Home and commercial building owners benefit from rooftop solar panels as an affordable method to generate electricity. These systems are also known to enhance a property’s value and can add to a buildings resale value. The sun is a constant source of clean and free energy. Rooftop solar work throughout the year in the sun, rain, wind and snow.

In recent years, India’s solar industry has grown rapidly and India has set ambitious renewable energy targets of 175 GW by 2022, including 100GW of solar power. Of this, 60 GW is to be utility-scale solar, and the rest to be rooftop solar. With significant progress on the 60 GW utility-scale solar target, getting to the 40 GW rooftop solar target is a challenge.

While, the adoption of rooftop solar is primarily driven by expected savings in electricity costs; the need for an alternative source of electricity; and the desire to mitigate climate change risk, a number of hurdles remain that are keeping the industry from booming.

The Solar India conference will host a full day Solar Rooftop Summit on 23 May 2019 to take a stock of the solar rooftop sector. The tentative agenda is as follows:
