Subsidy for Solar Water Heating Systems (SWHs) discontinued

Ministry of new & Renewable Energy (MNRE) discontinues subsidy for Solar Water Heating Systems under 'Off-Grid and Decentralised Solar Thermal Application Scheme' under Jawaharlal Nehru National Solar Mission (JNNSM). The order will be in effect from 1st October, 2014. All systems where invoices were issued before 12.8.2014 can be completed. However data for such systems can be entered only upto 30th September,2014.

All the Channel Partners as well as State Nodal Agencies will be free to continue to supply solar water heating systems at their end without MNRE subsidy. However, MNRE will continue to make publicity to popularise the solar water heaters in the country and also provide technical support.

MNRE has also a system of testing and certification of product through accredited labs, making channel partners after rating by Credit Rating Agencies and is also working on five star rating for solar water heaters. These provisions will be continued so that the customer gets quality product and the support available from MNRE for developing the entrepreneur and companies in this regard is available for further development of the sector.
