Ministry of New & Renewable Energy (MNRE) has amended the guidelines for Approved List of Models & Manufacturers (ALMM) on 13th January.
All solar projects or solar water pumps installed under component-A of PM-KUSUM scheme will now require the solar modules to be enlisted in ALMM.
Following to this open access projects & Net-Metering projects will also need to use ALMM registered solar modules. Implementing from now on 1st April 2021.
In view of this amendment top Chinese companies like Trina, Jinko & others will be kept out until the inclusion in the ALMM or setting up their own manufacturing unit in India.
