Karnataka has fine-tuned their rooftop solar policy (memorandum reproduced at the end of this post)
- The maximum size of the rooftop solar plant was earlier limited to 150% of the sanctioned load. This has been reduced to 100% of the sanctioned load.
- Earlier, commercial consumers were eligible for net metering while Domestic, Hospital and Educational institutions were eligible for gross metering. Now Domestic, Hospital and Educational institutions can opt for either gross or net metering by a one time irrevocable option
