Maharashtra and Kerala are the three states, where rooftop solar has
achieved grid parity, even without 30% MNRE subsidy. Which in simple words means that it makes
economic sense to go for rooftop solar, right now, because the regular
electricity tariffs in these three states is so high that one can make
significant savings by going solar.
Other states with very high
potential, in North India, are Haryana, Rajasthan and Punjab, where the gap
that needs to be bridged is very small.
Of course, solar is economical
compared to diesel generators anywhere in India, with diesel prices over
Rs.50 a liter and generation of about 3.5 units of electricity per liter,
mere fuel cost comes to Rs.15 a unit.
