Kannur Solar Project

Kerala Announces Work Contract Tender for 3 MW of Solar Project at Naval Station in Kannur
The Kerala State Electronics Development Corporation (KELTRON) has issued tender to set up a 3 MW grid-connected solar photovoltaic (PV) project at Naval Station Ezhimala, located in Kannur district. The bid-submission deadline is February 08, 2019.

This is an engineering procurement construction (EPC) tender and the successful bidder will have 50 days from the issue of letter of award (LoA) of the contract to complete the work order.

The scope of work includes the testing of the site, design, engineering, supply, and installation of the 3 MW solar PV project. Of late, the establishments owned or controlled by Indian defense organizations and departments have been increasingly turning to solar PV technology to cut down power costs.

In the past, the Military Engineering Services (MES) had announced a similar tender for a 3 MW solar project to be developed at Ezhimala in Kerala. The estimated cost of the project was ?225 million (~$3.487 million).

In 2017, MES had also tendered a 2 MW solar project to be developed at Jodhpur in Rajasthan. The project was developed for the GE Army Utility at Jodhpur.

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.
