What Is Net Metering?

Net metering is a mechanism of recording import and export of units. Tying your solar power plant in UP to the government grid allows you to earn solar credits by sending unused solar energy units to the grid. On some days when your region doesn’t receive enough sunshine due to inclement weather, the solar panels produce less power than the standard output. In this case, you can also fall back to the grid and meet your additional power requirements.

The net meter is paired with your solar panels to record this flow of energy between the grid and your home. It records both the import of grid electricity and the export of solar electricity in your monthly utility bill, and you’ll be required to settle the difference.


How to Apply for a Net Meter in Uttar Pradesh?

Broadly, the process for installing a net meter is the same across all states in India. When applying for solar panel subsidy in Uttar Pradesh, the process will involve the commissioning of your system which requires setting up a net metering mechanism to regulate your home solar system.


More and more households are recognizing the financial, economical, and environmental advantages of switching to solar. And given the impetus of the solar subsidy scheme, installing a solar system with subsidy in UP can now fit any home with any budget.

However, it’s important to note that government subsidies are only available until the country’s target of 40GW of rooftop solar (RTS) installations is achieved. The world is moving to renewable alternatives to facilitate sustainable growth and development. Therefore, now is the right time to tap into the power of solar PV technology for your home.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is the price of a 3kW solar panel system in Uttar Pradesh with subsidy?

    A 3kW solar system is a suitable size to power small homes and commercial spaces. Most property owners on a budget prefer this system size to reduce their electricity costs without compromising on their energy needs. If you opt for a grid-connected solar framework and select made-in-India solar components, you will be able to receive a maximum subsidy of Rs. 43,764.

  • Do I have to hire only a registered/empanelled solar vendor to set up my RTS plant?

    To be eligible under the subsidy scheme, it’s mandatory to only hire an empanelled vendor who is vetted and authorized to work on subsidized residential solar projects. They uphold the required minimum specifications and standards in RTS installations. It’s advised to go for a solar company registered with your local Distribution Utility (DISCOM) company.

  • What kind of necessary assistance is your vendor obligated to provide?

    The vendor must conduct an initial site survey of the location where you intend to set up your solar power plant in UP. During the survey, your site is evaluated on the technical and financial parameters, which determine the right type, size, and design of your home solar plant.

    It’s the vendor’s duty to carry out the entire installation process, including permit acquisitions. Also, the vendor is required to help the DISCOM authority in setting up the net meter and inspecting the installed solar plant. Post installation, your vendor provides ongoing maintenance on your plant for the next five years.

  • How much space is needed to put a 1kW rooftop solar system?

    Although it largely depends on the number of solar panels used and the module mounting structure opted for, a typical 1kW RTS plant composed of standard-quality panels will occupy 10 sq. metres. The area must be clear of any shadow cast by nearby trees and structures to ensure that solar panels perform at their peak efficiency level.
