It would be preferable to have a solar policy that offers a tariff for excess energy exported to the grid. Even better if it offers a higher tariff since it is green energy that is being generated. That would give incentive to the consumers to set up larger capacities and utilize most of their available unused rooftop and waste lands in their premises. That’s something to look forward to.
