“Budget left non-utility solar players to fend for themselves”

The FY 2021-22 budget has left the non-utility solar players to fend for themselves. Adding to the misery is the capped net metering of 10KW, which is likely to impact 70% of the rooftop solar business, the Government’s stance to raise import duties on solar inverters will further discourage potential investment in the solar development segment, and adversely affect employment. Similarly, the allocation of ₹ 2500 crore fund to SECI and REDA (cumulatively), is a play on optics and is yet again, not likely to benefit the private players. Moreover, the silence of the authorities on the GST front has now become a matter of concern, which if introduced, had the potential to generate revenue for the Government, and aide private players alike. The only silver lining in the budget is the Government taking note of the Hydrogen Energy sector and we hope for it to have a serious outlay. This in-turn is likely to prompt Indian players in the sector to take the lead globally.
