MNRE Seeks Stakeholder Comments on Revised Standards for Solar Modules and Inverters

The Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE) has issued a notification detailing the recommendations of the expert committee on implementing the quality control order titled ‘Solar Photovoltaics (PV) Systems, Devices, and Components Goods Order 2017’ under Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) Act.

The order includes solar modules, inverters, and battery storage with standards adopted from the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) standards for these products.

On June 14, 2019, the BIS published the revised standards for solar PV modules and inverters and had suggested that MNRE hold stakeholder consultations before it is implemented on June 11, 2020. Subsequently, the BIS had extended the timeline of implementation, taking into account the COVID-19 lockdown.

Now, the ministry has invited comments and suggestions from all the stakeholders on the recommendations of the experts’ committee by September 07, 2020.
