  3. 3. Introduction Solar energy is a clean, pollution free and renewable source of energy. Karnataka state is blessed with about 240 to 300 sunny days with good solar radiation The solar policy 2014-2021 announced by the Government of Karnataka emphasis on solar rooftop projects and with facilitation from Karnataka Electricity Regulatory Commission (KERC) BESCOM has taken the lead to implement net-metering for rooftop projects. BESCOM has proposed to implement the project for all consumers in Bangalore circle.
  4. 4. FAQs on rooftop solar PV What are the main components of a solar PV system? Solar Modules: Convert the solar light to electricity. Inverter: Convert the Direct Current (DC) from modules to Alternating Current (AC). The output from the inverter is connected to the the distribution board.
  5. 5. What is rooftop solar with net metering? When your electricity demand (load) exceeds your solar generation, energy will be imported from the BESCOM supply. When your solar generation exceeds your load demand (consumption), the energy will be exported to the BESCOM grid.

  7. 7. What are the benefits of rooftop with net metering? Net metering policies are intended to promote distributed generation where consumers with availability of roof space can generate energy and sell to the utility. Net meters (Import-Export) meters will be installed which will account the export and import of energy. Load demand of consumers will vary daily and with net metering you will have the benefit of ‘selling’ the solar energy you generate when your consumption is low. BESCOM will pay the consumer if the net export exceeds the import for a month As per KERC order (10th Oct 2013) the tariff are as follows(until further order revision) KERC approved tariff Without MNRE subsidy INR 9.56/kWh With MNRE subsidy INR 7.20/kWh

  12. 12. Timelines Timelines Application approval 7 working days from application submission Approval for installation 3 working days from the date of submission of technical details Installation 180 days Approval from Chief Electrical Inspectorate 7 working days after submission of work completion certificate Approval for grid synchronisation 3 working days from CEI inspection
  13. 13. Billing and payment The consumer shall receive a monthly net import/export bill indicating either net export to the grid or net import from the grid. “Import”- means energy supplied by the BESCOM grid. “Export”- means energy delivered to the BESCOM grid. In case of net import bill, the consumer shall pay the same as per existing tariff. In case, the export energy is more than the import, AEE, C,O&M sub-division will arrange for the energy exported as per the KERC approved tariff through NEFT. The amount payable by the BESCOM to the Seller for energy injected to the BESCOM grid (excluding self-consumption) during the billing period becomes due for payment, which shall be settled within 30 days from the date of meter reading and credited to the bank account through NEFT.
