Nevada regulators reinstate net metering, seek to increase RPS target In June 2017, Nevada regulators passed and signed into law a bill that will reinstate net metering and continue to push for increasing the State’s RPS target to 40%, up from 25%. When net metering was eliminated in December 2015, demand for residential PV in Nevada was significantly reduced. Restoring net metering will have an immediate and positive impact on the market, increasing demand for residential PV from the second half of 2017. Increasing the RPS target will ensure that long-term demand for utility-scale renewable energy sources in the market will remain strong.

The government of India has decided to roll-out Goods and Service Tax (GST) rates by 1 July 2017. The GST Council has released the rates and grouped the products/goods in five different tax brackets (0%, 5%, 12%, 18%, and 28%). As per the GST rate schedule released, renewable energy devices & spare parts used for their manufacture will be taxed at 5%. Further in the description part of the rate schedule, it also says that solar power based devices and solar power generating systems will also fall under the 5% tax bracket. There has been a clarification provided by the GST Council that Solar panels will fall under the 5% tax bracket, bringing big relief to both developers and suppliers, since earlier drafts included solar panels under the 18% tax bracket.
