This would be in addition to savings accrued to consumers, the discom said on Thursday.

Neeraj Kuldeep, Programme Lead, CEEW, said: “Our analysis highlights that focusing on scaling solar rooftops among residential consumers leads to enhanced discom revenues while advancing India’s solar targets and creating new jobs.”
