For processing of solar net and gross applications, a new unified web portal was launched by Debendra Dalai, Chief Conservator of Forests-cum-Chief Executive Officer, CREST, Chandigarh, today.

The unified web portal has been developed by the Chandigarh Renewable Energy and Science and Technology Promotion Society (CREST) in association with the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE), World Bank and M/s E&Y.

The website will have paperless processing in a time-bound manner, bring transparency in the system and help in efficient monitoring and ease of doing business.

Through this portal, a beneficiary can easily track his/her solar net/gross metering application. This portal is also linked with the MNRE and SPIN website for faster disbursement of subsidy.

The registration process on the previous website has been discontinued with immediate effect. New registrations will be done only through new portal.

The programme was attended by Dr Abdul Qayum, Additional Chief Executive Officer, CREST, officials and representatives of the Chandigarh Electricity Department.
