Power and renewable energy minister, R K Singh has launched the State Rooftop Solar Attractiveness Index (SARAL) to assess states based on their attractiveness for rooftop development.
It was launched at the evaluation planning and monitoring meeting with states and state power utilities in New Delhi.
"To achieve our rooftop solar targets, it is important to develop an ecosystem that ensures information symmetry, access to financing and clear market signals," believed an MNRE release.
According to the announcement, SARAL is the first of its kind index to provide a comprehensive overview of state-level measures adopted to facilitate rooftop solar deployment.
It has been designed by MNRE, Shakti Sustainable Energy Foundation, Associated Chambers of Commerce and Industry of India and Ernst & Young.
SARAL targets to make the policy framework robust, create an implementation and investment climate, enhance consumer experience, and build a business ecosystem. Apart from this, it is also aimed at helping the states channelize investments.
