Varkala Solar Project

Solar project to charge Kerala's power sector
The Kerala State Electricity Board’s (KSEB) project which aims to generate electricity through rooftop solar panel units is getting a good response as more than one lakh consumers have already registered on the Board’s website. The initiative could bring about a big change as Kerala has been lagging other states in terms of harnessing solar power.

KNOW THE SCHEMES
3 different schemes will be offered to the consumers
In the first two schemes, KSEB will bear the expenses related to solar panel installation and maintenance
In the first scheme, consumers will get 10 per cent of the total produced electricity free of cost
In the second, consumer will get any quantity of electricity produced at a fixed rate
In the third, consumers will invest in the solar power systems. They will be able to use the entire energy generated on their roof tops and entitled to sell the generated solar power completely or partially to the KSEB

India's largest floating solar power plant opens in Kerala

What you are seeing is the country's largest floating solar power plant and it's set up on the Banasura Sagar reservoir in Wayanad, Kerala.
The 500 kWp (kilowatt peak) solar plant of the Kerala state electricity board (KSEB) floats on 1.25 acres of water surface of the reservoir. The solar plant has 1,938 solar panels which have been installed on 18 ferro cement floaters with hollow insides.

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.
