Navi Mumbai Solar Project

2,000 houses in Maharashtra generate own solar power and sell extra to state-grid

Rooftop solar power is increasingly become popular. More than 2,000 houses in the state are now connected to the state grid. "It helps cut the power bill, and initial cost can be recovered within five years. I consider it my contribution to nature by reducing the carbon footprint," says paediatrician Dr Prashant Gaikwad from new Panvel, who installed 6 KW panel of Rs 3 lakh at his bungalow a year ago. His home generated 10 units a day of which only 7 units were consumed.

Over 195 industries, a sports complex in Navi Mumbai, 10 educational institutes in eastern suburbs and Municipal corporation of Thane have also joined the solar bandwagon recently.

Mumbai holds the potential to generate close to 1,720 MW of solar energy, according to a report released by the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Bombay.

The report, that gauges the solar energy potential of Mumbai, found that if solar panels are installed atop buildings, the city could generate 1,724 MW energy, half of its requirement.

IST Alumni Feedback

Ritesh Kumar Upadhyay

From IST boost my confidence in solar sector carrier, understanding of PV solar system, and designing of ON GRID/OFF GRID PV power plants through practical as well as theoretical way. Lab and lectures helped me to gain every knowledge about designing of PV solar as well as it. Overall I am satisfied, I have gained through iST, IST has a bright future and best of luck to all students who come here to make their career in the solar field.

SOLAR POLICY FOR Maharashtra - 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 of solar system
Size: Up to 1 MWp; with variation of 5%
Voltage level: 230 / 240V : upto 8 kWp max., 400/ 415V (Three phase)
Above 8 to 150 kWp max. in Metropolitian Area and 8 to 80 kWp in Other Areas
11 kV and Above Level : Above 150 to 1000kWp max. in Metropolitian Area and 80 to 1000 kWp in Other Areas
The HT consumers (11 KV and above) may install and connect Rooftop Solar PV systems at their LT bus bar System provided that, in such cases, the Net Meter shall be installed on the HT side of the Transformer


Maharashtra solar policy

Maharashtra has set a target of generating additional grid-connected solar power capacity of 7500 MW by 2019. Of this, 2500 MW would be generated as a public-private partnership with MAHAGENCO (Maharashtra State Power Generation Company Ltd, formerly known as the MSEB). The remaining 5000MW solar power projects will be tendered to other developers.

Rooftop Solar

Maharashtra approved the states rooftop solar energy policy in January 2016.

The policy offers several concessions encouraging both public departments and private entities to go solar. The policy instructs Civic Development Authorities to provide construction permission only to government buildings and colonies that pledge to install rooftop solar.

Government and semi-government offices that have pledged to go solar can receive up to 100% subsidy, while private offices and companies can receive up to 15% subsidy for installing rooftop solar panels.

Residential, commercial and industrial buildings are setting up rooftop solar systems to cut down energy bills, making use of the subsidies offered by the government.

Net Metering for Domestic Solar Rooftops

Maharashtra provides a net metering system for domestic solar rooftops. The size of the solar system determines the voltage level that will be fed into the grid, and the MSEDCL (Maharashtra State Electricity Distribution Co. Ltd.) is in charge of the application processing for Net Metering.
