Cumulative rooftop solar installations in India reached 4.6 GW as of Q1 2020. In the first quarter of 2020, India installed 194 MW projects, a decline of 36% as compared to 304 MW in the fourth quarter of 2019.
In a year over year comparison, the installations decreased by 26%, compared to 263 MW installed in Q1 2019, according to Mercom India Research’s Q1 2020 India Solar Market Update.
The top 5 states for the rooftop solar account for over 50% of the installations in the country.
The most disappointing developments in the rooftop segment in the past few months have been in Karnataka and Maharashtra as both states have introduced business models and charges to curb development in the rooftop segment.
