September 4, 2014 By Linda Hardesty

India energy manageThe Delhi Electricity Regulatory Commission announced rules for a new net-metering program to provide credits for solar energy contributed to the grid.

Owners of on-site solar will receive credits for their excess energy, and then their local utility will pay them for their credits at the end of each financial year. The reimbursement prices have not yet been determined.

Newly elected Prime Minister Narendra Modi has pledged to broaden India’s solar industry beyond large desert projects toward the kind of scattered rooftop installations that have been successful in the US and Japan, reports Bloomberg.
