KSEB aims to generate 500 MW electricity from rooftop solar plants
The Kerala State Electricity Board Limited’s Soura Roof Top solar power plant project is getting good response from the public. So far, 2065 persons including the owners of residential buildings and commercial buildings have registered with the KSEBL for taking part in the Soura venture.

The Soura project of the KSEB aims to generate 500 Mega Watt electricity by installing roof top panels at maximum number of buildings across the state. The project offers three different schemes to the consumer.

“Under first two schemes, the KSEB will bear the expenses for installing and maintaining the solar panels,” said K B Swaminathan, deputy chief engineer of KSEB Kozhikode Circle. It is the first time that the KSEB is volunteering to generate solar power energy, he said.

While the first scheme offers 10 per cent of the total produced electricity to the consumer free of cost, the second scheme offers any quantity of electricity produced at a fixed rate to the consumer. The third schemes will be completed with the investment of the consumer. The consumer will have the right to use the whole energy generated at his roof top or can sell the energy completely or partially to the KSEBL.

The Soura project aims to generate 500 MW renewable energy in three years. The plan is to generate 150 MW with the support of domestic and agriculture consumers, 250 MW with the support of commercial and non-governmental buildings, and 100 MW electricity with the support of government buildings.

Interested building and land owners can register for the scheme till August 31. The KSEB officials will select the participants of the project after site inspection and feasibility study at all buildings.

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.
