BSNL Kerala launches solar rooftop power plant on its building
BSNL Kerala is setting up solar rooftop power plants of 505 kWp capacity on its buildings in the state, with the first one being commissioned on the administrative building in Manacaud here.

BSNL will have the right to 'open access' to wheel the excess electricity to the grid, and this could alos be used by another BSNL building.

This endeavour would not only save on BSNLís electricity charges, but would also contribute towards ensuring a green and clean atmosphere by reducing carbon emissions.

The total capacity of the current array of 505 kWp solar power plants is approximately 7.4 lakh units of pollution-free electricity annually. This will, in turn, reduce about 600 tonnes of carbon emission.

BSNL is committed to implementing more solar projects in Kerala, the spokesman said, extending its green initiative and discharging part of its corporate social responsibility as well.

SOLAR POLICY FOR KERALA - Residential, Commercial & Industrial

1. NET METERING -
Net metering is a billing system that allows rooftop owners having solar system installed at their rooftop to sell any excess electricity generated from solar system to local electricity utility
Capacity - Min 1 kWp, Max 1 MWp
Conditions: Cumulative capacity of all solar systems installed in your area shall not exceed 30% of distribution transformer capacity in your area LT systems and 80% for HT systems.


Kerala's Solar target set at 1,870 MW by 2022

The total installed capacity of the state, all sources in the state included, is now just shy of 3,000 MW. The KSEB alone expects to complete 15 solar power projects with a total installed capacity of 9.2 MW in 2018-19. Majority of these are rooftop solar plant projects in schools, government buildings and local bodies. In addition to these, the KSEB has also launched paperwork on seven other solar power projects. Of the 200 MW Kasargod solar project, a 50 MW component is already functional. Moreover, the KSEB has also given conditional clearance for purchasing electricity generated at the proposed 170 MW solar project planned by NTPC Ltd at Kayamkulam, according to Electricity Minister M M Mani. ANERT pursues three separate schemes for generation of solar power using rooftop plants.
ANERT is now promoting the Renewable Energy Service Company (RESCO) model in the state for encouraging government hospitals and establishments to take up solar projects. The big attraction of this model, which is promoted by the Solar Energy Corporation of India (SECI), is the government agencies will not have to make any initial investment.
