Maharashtra Electricity Regulatory Commission, vide its Order dated 25 November, 2013 in Case No. 86 of 2013, constituted a working committee to study the technical and commercial issues involved in providing connectivity to solar rooftop PV projects and other small solar PV projects with distribution network.
