State discoms will have to mandatorily draw at least 2.75 per cent of their total power consumption from solar plants in the current fiscal, according to the RPO norms laid down by the power ministry. States will have to increase the share of solar power to 4.75 per cent in 2017-18 and 6.75 per cent in 2018-19, the guidelines said. While the Ministry of Power has issued guidelines, the final targets will be set by each individual state's electricity regulatory commission (SERC). The RPO has been divided into energy from solar sources and non-solar. The ministry has set the quota of power to be drawn from non-solar renewable energy sources at 8.75 per cent in 2016-17, 9.50 per cent in 2017-18 and 10.25 per cent in 2018-19. This adds up to a total renewable energy share of 11.50 per cent this year, 14.25 per cent in 2017-18 and 17 per cent in 2018-19. India had earlier announced a goal of achieving 8 per cent intake of solar power by March 2022.
