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
