Vadakara Solar Project

Initiative part of projects worth Rs.97.98 cr. envisaged by the local body
A slew of ambitious projects to the tune of Rs.97.98 crore have been envisaged by the Kozhikode district panchayat in the annual plan for 2016-17.

One of the major projects would be the generation of power from solar energy using the on-grid/off-grid connection scheme of the Kerala State Electricity Board (KSEB), district panchayat president Babu Parassery and vice-president Reena Mundengad told reporters after endorsing the plan at a meeting on Monday.

Mr. Parassery said that solar panels would be installed on the buildings of the district panchayat office, its five farms, Vadakara district hospital, Ayurveda and Homoeopathy hospitals and 45-odd high and higher secondary schools managed by the district panchayat. The project, which aimed to provide revenue for the district panchayat, would be implemented by the KSEB, he said.

The district panachayt had already held discussions with senior officials of the KSEB in this regard. A sum of Rs.2.22 crore had been set aside for the project in the first phase. The State government had also decided to contribute Rs.4. 41 crore from its kitty, he added.

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.
