In an effort to encourage NRE deployment, the government initiated a programme called "1 million green homes program". The official name has been changed in 2013 to "Home subsidy program". The programme encourages installation of new and renewable energy installations in residential areas such as private houses, multi-family houses and public rental houses.
The programme encourages investment by subsidizing certain amount of installation costs. The programme supports installation of PV systems as well as solar thermal, geo-thermal, and small wind plants.
