Production Linked Incentive Scheme ‘National Programme on High Efficiency Solar PV Modules’.
The sanction of President for implementation of Production Linked Incentive scheme ‘National Programme on High Efficiency Solar PV Modules’ for achieving manufacturing capacity of Giga Watt (GW) scale in High Efficiency Solar PV modules.
2.0 Aims and Objectives:
2.1 Aim: To promote manufacturing of high efficiency solar PV modules in India and thus reduce import dependence in the area of Renewable Energy.
a. To build up solar PV manufacturing capacity of high efficiency modules.
b. To bring cutting edge technology to India for manufacturing high efficiency modules. The scheme will be technology agnostic in that it will allow all technologies. However, technologies which result in better module performance will be incentivized.
c. To promote setting up of integrated plants for better quality control and competitiveness.
d. To develop an ecosystem for sourcing of local material in solar manufacturing.
e. Employment generation and technological self-sufficiency.
3.0 Implementation Methodology: The Scheme will be implemented as per the detailed Scheme Guidelines enclosed at Annexure-I.
4.0 Necessary funds for implementation of this Scheme during 2021-22 (if any required) and subsequent years will be drawn from the budgetary allocations to Ministry of New & Renewable Energy.
5.0 This sanction issues in exercise of powers delegated to this Ministry and with the concurrence of
