A Detailed Guide On How To Apply For Solar Subsidy In Rajasthan

In recent years, there has been an exponential increase in the requirement for energy with the increase in industrial development. Equally, this rise in energy demand has caused the depletion of conventional energy sources like coal, petrol, diesel, and other fossil fuels.

One of the most important renewable energy sources is solar energy, and it is now crucial to utilize it as much as possible. Installing solar panels not only brings substantial long-term monetary benefits but also reduces the dependency on the grid.

And providing a solar subsidy in Rajasthan is an effort by the state government aiming towards clean and green energy production for every segment of society.

There are specific application procedures that you need to know while applying for solar subsidy in Rajasthan.

This post intends to make you understand the eligibility criteria, the application procedure, the impacts and benefits of going solar, and more. Dive in!

For installations over 3kW to 10 kW, you will get a 40% subsidy on L1 rates per KW for the first 3KW and a 20% subsidy on L1 rates per KW for the rest capacity.

Which is why a new DBT subsidy program has been launched. It’s a nationwide program. DBT stands for Direct Benefit Transfer.

Under this programme, the customers will get a subsidy amount directly in their bank accounts without delay within 30 days of the commissioning of the net meter.

Also, the rate of subsidy is fixed for the entire country in DBT. Due to the many benefits and the simple nature of this program, it’s expected that DBT will overtake the state subsidy programs.

Above 3kW and up to 10kW₹14,588/kW for the first 3kW; thereafter, ₹7294/kW
