Solar Panel Subsidy in Andhra Pradesh, 2023

The government announced a 40% subsidy for up to 3 kW system but it was difficult to get funds due to the pandemic. The subsidy is available for residential homeowners who install on-grid solar systems. It is provided by the state discom company after submitting the complete installation documents on their portal.

For a 3 kW system, the final price will be around Rs 90,000 after subsidies in Andhra Pradesh. For a 3 kW - 10 kW system, a subsidy of 40% will be applicable for the first 3 kW capacity, and 20% for above 3 kW. The subsidy is 20% for common facilities up to 500 kW for group housing societies and residential welfare associations.

Components of a Solar System

Solar Panels: Solar panels are the heart of any solar system. These panels are made up of photovoltaic cells that convert sunlight into electricity. Solar panels come in many variants like DCR solar panels, monocrystalline solar panels, and bifacial solar panels. The most prominent choice is bifacial solar panel for residential purpose.

Solar Inverter: Solar panels generate direct current (DC) electricity, but most of our household appliances use alternating current (AC). So, we need a solar inverter to convert DC into AC. On grid solar inverters are a crucial part of the system, they come in different sizes 3KW, 5 KW, 8 KW and 10 KW.

Solar Batteries (optional): Some solar power systems include batteries to store excess electricity for use during cloudy days or at night. This is especially valuable in places with unreliable grid power, making sure you have electricity even when the sun isn't shining.

Mounting Structure: Solar panels need to be securely mounted on rooftops or the ground. The mounting structure not only keeps them in place but also ensures they are at the right angle to receive maximum sunlight.

Charge Controller (if using batteries): The charge controller regulates the flow of electricity to and from the batteries, preventing overcharging and prolonging battery life.

Wiring: Proper wiring are essential to connect all the components of the system safely and efficiently. These wires transport electricity from the solar panels to the inverter, batteries (if present), and then to your home or the grid.

How to apply for Net Metering?

Net metering is important for solar subsidies in Andhra Pradesh because it helps more people use clean energy. With net metering, solar panel owners can sell extra electricity back to the DISCOM and earn money. This encourages more people to choose solar power, which is good for the economy.

To apply for a net meter in Andhra Pradesh, follow these simple steps:

1. Go to Andhra Pradesh Electricity Regulatory Commission (APERC) website for applying net meter.
2. Fill the form for net meter.
3. Then submit the form.
4. Now, You have to wait for the approval.
5. After you get approved then you have to submit the required documents and payment.

Type of Rooftop Solar System

On Grid Solar System: If you want to reduce your electricity bill up to 80% then on grid solar system is an optimal choice for you. An on-grid solar system, also known as a grid-tied solar system, that system is connected to the electricity grid, and this will help you to save money form the electricity bills. As well as you can sell excess generated electricity back to the DISCOM and earn money with that.

Off Grid Solar System: If you live in a remote area or experience frequent power cuts, you may want to consider an off-grid solar system. An off-grid solar system includes batteries to store excess power for use during times when the sun is not shining.

Hybrid Solar System: A hybrid solar system is a combination of an “on-grid” and “off-grid solar systems”. It is basically a grid connected system that comes with a battery backup. So, it has the advantage of both you can store excess power in the battery for use during an emergency time as well as you can sell the surplus generated power to the grid and earn money.

According, to the solar professional “Hybrid Solar System” is the optimal choice because from this you can reduce your electricity bill as well as get power backup during emergency time. This makes it a popular choice for residential installations.

Solar Panel Subsidy Scheme


Both central and state government offer subsidies schemes to people for installation the rooftops solar system.

Central government subsidy scheme:

Central government subsidy scheme is known as DBT (Direct Bank Transfer). In this scheme the subsidy amount will be directly transfer into the customers bank account with in the 30 days of commissioning of the solar system. You can get central government subsidy by applying through the National Portal for Solar Portal

State government subsidy scheme:

The government of Andhra Pradesh doesn't give its own special subsidy, but people who live in houses and install solar panels on their rooftops can get financial help from the national rooftop solar website. Here's what you need to know about this financial help:

  • From 1kW to 3kW: ₹14588/ kW
  • Above 3kW to 10kW: ₹7294/kW. (₹14588/ kW for the first 3kW and ₹7294/kW for the rest)
  • Above 10kW: A fixed subsidy of ₹94822
