India has an ambitious Solar Energy capacity addition program of adding 100 GW by the year 2022. Out of above 40 GW is expected to be added through Roof Top Solar. Addition of 40 GW as part of Roof Top Solar in next 5-6 years is quite ambitious. Various states have announced their state specific policies for implementation of Roof Top solar programs. Net Metering policies are entwined with Roof Top solar programs. Though quite a few states have announced their programs but real work on the ground has yet to pickup. In US and some other EU countries where sunshine is abundantly available, there has been a never ending debate on practical Net Metering policies and applicable energy tariff regime. There is a group which advocates retail tariffs while another group supports the DG to be billed as per the Utility Generation charges.
