  10. 10. Questions to be answered…<br />Jani: Distributed PV Generation at Gandhinagarl; 21 Oct. 2010.<br />5<br />Technical:<br />How many MW can be installed?<br />How to govern the quality of PV installations? Safety standards?<br />What will be the implications on grid power quality?<br />Contractual and Regulatory<br />Who will invest the initial capital?<br />Who will buy the expensive solar power?<br />Who will sign the contracts? Involvement of each party?<br />What kind of terms and conditions should the contract have?<br />What will be the contractual and regulatory framework of the programme?<br />Implementation:<br />How many MW should be installed?<br />What will be the procedure of implementation? Implementing agency?<br />How will the quality and standards of project be ensured? Feedback?<br />How will power theft be avoided?<br />
