The New Delhi Municipal Council (NDMC), in its Council Meeting on Thursday, approved a solar policy which aims to utilise the existing roof space of buildings and open area for the solar systems to harness the available potential for generating solar power using unutilised space, along with promotion of green and clean power to reduce the dependence on conventional source of energy.

With a view to promote clean, green, sustainable sources of energy including its citizens, the NDMC has proposed Solar Policy 2023. The NDMC plans to develop grid connected solar plants for meeting its own electricity needs and injecting surplus electricity into the distribution grid through Grid-connectivity.
The applicant will be eligible for exemption from electricity taxes on Cess on generation of Solar Energy. They will also be exempted from paying any commercial recovery charges limited to the extent of solar power generation.
