Rs 85,800 Subsidy on Solar Rooftop Systems Under PM Surya Ghar: KPDCL

36,400 Solar Rooftops to be Installed in Next 3 Years

No Technical Feasibility Required for Plants Up to 10 kWp

SRINAGAR, JULY 05: The Kashmir Power Distribution Corporation Limited (KPDCL) has urged domestic consumers to apply for the installation of Solar Rooftop Plants under the PM Surya Ghar: Muft Bijli Yojana, a flagship scheme aimed at promoting free solar energy.
KPDCL announced that around 40 empanelled Solar PV Vendors will be onboarded to the National PM Surya Ghar portal, facilitating the rollout of this subsidized scheme in the Kashmir Division. According to a statement from a KPDCL spokesperson, 36,400 solar rooftops are planned to be installed by March 31, 2027. A significant number of consumers have already registered, and installation will commence soon with the onboarding of vendors. Consumers are encouraged to submit their applications on the designated portal – www.pmsuryaghar.gov.in.
To assist beneficiaries, the spokesperson mentioned that no Technical Feasibility Report (TFR) is needed for solar plants up to 10 kWp, though solar panels must be installed on the beneficiaries’ rooftops.
The PM Surya Ghar Scheme offers a subsidy of 60% of the system cost up to 2 kW and 40% of the additional system cost for systems between 2-3 kW. Current benchmark prices suggest subsidies of Rs. 33,000 for 1 kWp, Rs. 66,000 for 2 kWp, and Rs. 85,800 for 3 kWp solar rooftop systems or higher for Jammu & Kashmir. Households availing the scheme can expect savings on electricity bills.
KPDCL has created a hyperlink for the PM-Surya Ghar: Muft Bijli Yojana on its website – www.kpdcl.jkpdd.net, directing consumers to the national portal for registration. Additionally, Kashmir DISCOM is organizing awareness camps and IEC campaigns across all Electric Divisions to maximize publicity for the scheme.
