Rajasthan Electricity Regulatory Commission (RERC) on Thursday said that the new net metering norms for rooftop will be effective from July 1, 2021.

But it said that the rules will change if the Centre amends them. The Ministry of Power in its Electricity (Rights to Consumers) Rules, 2020 had said that load capacity of above 10 kilowatt will not be considered for net metering putting at risk majority of the rooftop projects.

RERC had also used the norms to deny net metering benefits to projects above 10kw by putting them under gross billing or metering category. Under the gross billing or metering, the project owner will have to pay normal electricity rate to discoms even though it uses cheap power from its rooftop plant.
