The mechanical structures, electrical works including power conditioners/inverters/charge controllers/maximum power point tracker units/distribution boards/digital meters/switch gear/storage batteries, etc. and over all workmanship of the SPV power plants/ systems must be warranted against any manufacturing/ design/ installation defects for a minimum period of 5 years.

Payment of solar projects

The eligible consumer interested in installing solar project in his premises will make payment to empanelled vendor after deducting subsidy (CFA) amount from the total invoice amount. The consumers are advised not to pay 100% advance payment to the companies for installation of roof top solar power plant and fix terms and conditions of the payment and sign an agreement in this regard. The receipt of the payment must be taken.

What is Net Metering?

Net metering is the process through which you attain a “dual-benefit “by installing a solar power plant on the roof, open space of the building to generate electricity. Generated power is first used in the building as per the requirement and the surplus power is fed to the grid of utility (PSPCL).

Know Your Capacity Range

Under Net Metering Policy, Solar PV Power Plants of capacity ranging from 1KW to 1MW can be installed. The maximum capacity of solar power plant to be installed in a building would be 80% of the sanctioned electricity load of that building. Capacity of required plant shall be calculated as under :

 

  • Total annual electricity consumption of house/building = ……KWh = (A)
  • Per day electricity consumption = A/365 = (B)
  • Actual Plant capacity = B/4 = …...KW

Do You Want To Install?

Under Net Metering Policy, All eligible consumers of electricity in the area of the supply of distribution licensee can participate in the solar rooftop net metering arrangement subject to target capacity.

  • The system must be installed in consumer’s premises.
  • The maximum capacity of rooftop solar system shall not exceed 80% of the sanctioned load (kW) or contract demand of the consumer (in kVA converted to kW by using a power factor of 0.9).
  • Provided that the installed capacity shall not be less than 1 kWp and shall not exceed 1MWp (AC side) for a single eligible consumer
