The lender has availed dollar financing from World Bank to further on-lend for such projects. Rajnish Kumar, chairman, SBI, said in a press conference, "This is clean energy and capturing the biggest natural resource in India to add to the existing power capacity".

SBI has availed a line of credit of Dollars 625 million from World Bank for on-lending to viable Grid Connected Rooftop Solar projects undertaken by PV developers/aggregators and end-users, for installation of rooftop solar systems on the rooftops of commercial, institutional and industrial buildings.

An SBI statement said the loans are intended for developers and end-users for installation of rooftop solar systems on the rooftops of commercial, institutional and industrial buildings.
