Distribution companies (discoms) perceive that solar procurement from rooftop systems is costly. They are also worried about the grid balancing challenges with a huge number of decentralized units. In addition, there are several other systemic issues in the power distribution sector. It was thus important to address these concerns to enable discoms to contribute to and support the national rooftop SPV target. Accordingly, this initiative was designed to analyse the actual impact of rooftop SPV systems on discoms, and propose solutions to promote a healthy equation between prosumers (producers of SPV and consumers of power), discoms and other varied consumers.
