EESL To Spend Rs 800 cr To Install Solar Rooftops In Maharashtra.

Energy Efficiency Services (EESL) plans to install an aggregate 200 MW of grid connected solar rooftop across 5,000 state-owned buildings in   Maharashtra in the next two years at a cost of around Rs 800 crore.

 EESL is already retrofitting government buildings in Maharashtra with energy efficient appliances, investing Rs    325 crore to enable them to achieve   39 per cent savings in annual energy costs.  For retrofitting in 3,000 buildings, EESL will replace about 7,000 energy efficient ACs, 11 lakh LEDs   bulbs, six lakh energy efficient ceiling fans and also replace 14,000 streetlights in the state, contributing to energy savings of 100 million units per year.

Rooftop Solar Panels At Noida Metro.

Noida Metro Rail Corporation (NMRC) is in the process of installing rooftop solar panels at its all 21 stations and power generation through these will help it save approximately Rs 4.37 crore annually.The estimated annual power generation expected by NMRC through solar panels is 1, 22, 89,754 kWh. The estimated solar capacity of the panels to be installed in the entire network, including the depot, is around 10.021 MWp out of which around 6.811 MWp will be from all 21 stations and 2.5 MWp will be from the depot.

The NMRC has taken measures to adopt green building requirements and implemented green concepts in the design, construction and operation of this corridor. All stations have features like the conservation of natural resources, ensuring water efficiency, adoption of renewable energy, management of waste and commuter health and comfort.

 Maharashtra Commission Allows Grid Connectivity to 1.36 MW Rooftop Solar Project.

MERC likely to soon frame new regulations for net metering.The Maharashtra Electricity Regulatory Commission (MERC) has allowed a 1.36 MW rooftop solar project the required connectivity to the grid. The MERC was responding to a petition filed by Supreme Industries Ltd.The company had filed a petition regarding the forceful isolation of a 1.36 MW rooftop solar PV project for captive use, connected with an internal bus of 415 V.

The MERC also noted that the technical issues with the grid connectivity at low tension (LT) level of co-located solar PV projects and its financial impact on the distribution licensees need to be addressed. Parameters for grid security for connecting solar projects for captive use beyond the point of supply of consumer would need to be evolved after detailed deliberations with the stakeholders.
