Odisha Commission Eases Regulations for Rooftop Solar Installations


The Odisha Electricity Regulatory Commission (OERC) has stated that starting July 2, 2024, rooftop solar photovoltaic systems with capacities up to 10 kW will no longer need a technical feasibility study for approval. The OERC’s directive to distribution companies in Odisha is in harmony with recent amendments to the Electricity (Rights of Consumers) Rules, 2024, issued by the central government. According to the updated guidelines, properly completed applications for smaller systems will be accepted automatically.

The policy revision seeks to streamline and accelerate the installation process for residential and small commercial consumers interested in adopting solar energy. Distribution companies are now required to make any necessary enhancements to the consumer’s sanctioned load without additional procedures.

Recently, in July 2024, the Odisha government approved the investment proposals totaling Rs 9.03 billion in the renewable energy sector.
