This study aims to diagnose the reasons for the slow growth and low investments in solar rooftop in the Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSME) sector in India and assess the key barriers and potential ways to help scale up. 

The study also evaluates appropriate financial instruments that balance the concerns of lenders with the needs of MSMEs. A total of 150 MSMEs were surveyed across six identified clusters (rubber and plastic; pharmaceuticals; auto; paper; food and beverage; textiles). Through this lens, the study proposes interventions to promote and increase uptake of rooftop solar in the MSME segment in India.
