Various Solar EPC companies, traders, distributors and consultants have come together in Uttar Pradesh and formed UPSEDA, an umbrella body currently representing all the stakeholders.
Primary objective of the association is to address various concerns in the industry and represent the industry in front of the government bodies and courts
Right now, the association is engaged in a very tough fight to reinstate net metering for Industrial, commercial and institutional customers in Uttar Pradesh.
The association, now planning to go to the Honourable High Court of Uttar Pradesh is inviting everyone in the solar industry in the whole country to join it. The purpose of a combined show of strength and unity in the association is to ensure that no other state is able to remove net metering like it has been done in Uttar Pradesh. The case can be a precedent for all the other Courts to dissuade Power Regulatory Authorities to adopt such measures
Some members of UPSEDA have also started a Twitter campaign and are tweeting to Hon PM, Hon Energy Minister, Hon CM of UP and other stakeholders to bring this issue into public light and notice of higher authorities. Readers are requested to search for #SaveSolarInUP to follow the tweets and also tweet more towards solidarity of fellow Solar players in UP.
