The number of channel partners has increased to 190 System Integrators(SIs) as of 14.02.2013, compared to 171 SIs on 01.01.2013. The number of RESCOs remain the same, at 5. The increase in number of companies getting accredited could partially be attributed to the fact that many government tenders mandate that the bidders should be MNRE channel partners.
