Budget 2024: Shares of solar-related stocks gained up to 5% in today's trade after Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman, while presenting the interim budget for the fiscal year 2024-2025 in Parliament today (February 1), proposed to provide assistance for the installation of rooftop solar systems for 1 crore houses under the “Pradhanmantri Suryodaya Yojana."

"Through rooftop solarization, one crore households will be enabled to obtain up to 300 units of free electricity every month. This scheme follows the resolve of the Hon’ble Prime Minister on the historic day of the consecration of Ram Mandir in Ayodhya," said Nirmala Sitharaman.

The proposed rooftop solar initiative in the budget is expected to bring about significant benefits for households. Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman highlighted that households could anticipate savings ranging from fifteen to eighteen thousand rupees annually. This would result from the generation of free solar electricity for personal use as well as the potential to sell surplus energy back to distribution companies.
