ARUN  An easy to use mobile app (ARUN)for Solar rooftop was launched by Secretary MNRE on 24/01/2017 To manage and monitor the installation of solar rooftop system an online portal namely SPIN has been designed and developed by National Informatics Centre (NIC), MNRE. This portal can be accessed by www.solarrooftop.gov.in . Around 1200 agencies were empanelled online by MNRE using this portal. The data related to the installations are already started to enter in SPIN. Based on the coordinates of installation geo tagging has also done with the help of ISRO. As of now around 1500 plus users are using this portal. In today’s fast paced world, phones are not just used for calling, playing games etc. but with smart phones we can schedule our complete day, check emails, make conference calls, connect using social network and a perform a host of other activities. Hence the proposal of a mobile app for promoting and installation of solar rooftop power system came to NIC. NIC has designed and developed a simple but informative and useful application for the layman as well as the developers of solar power. Initially android version of the app has developed. The app namely ARUN – Atal Rooftop solar User Navigator. Here is the link to subscribe.. https://tinyurl.com/mnre-arun
