Inputs from SolarSquare, a B2C rooftop solar startup
Shreya Mishra, CEO, SolarSquare
“PMO’s push for #hargharsolar is a watershed moment for India’s residential solar sector. Policy support, increased subsidy and easing of solar permits are all tailwinds setting the ground for unprecedented solar adoption among homes in coming years.
Today, less than 1% homes in India have solar, but this story is about to change. There is deep interest from consumers in becoming energy-independent with solar and India should soon join the ranks of advanced residential solar markets like Germany, Australia and Brazil in home solar adoption.
As long term proponents and leaders working in this industry for 8+ years, we are incredibly grateful and excited for this historic announcement. Solar on homes will play a crucial role in India’s energy transition goals. I’m confident we will see it become a people’s revolution, a neighbourhood revolution in India.”
