On Grid Solar Plant - How Solar Net Metering Works
On Grid Solar Plant is the sure shot way of reducing your electricity bill. You can take control of your electricity bill and no longer worry about it for the next 25 years. Sounds complicated! Let us help you understand.
On Grid Solar Power Plant connects directly to your Electricity Meter and supplies electricity to the GRID. The electricity that the solar panels generate get supplied to the Grid & are counted by the Solar Net meter which is installed by BSES or TATA Power or DHBVN or any electricity distribution company prevalent in your area. These exported units are deducted from your Bill. Simple!
Let us take an example - You consumed 2000 units of electricity in a month. The solar plant produced 1600 units which got exported to the Grid. The Solar Net Meter installed by the DISCOM counts both the import of power and export of power to the Grid. Thus your total bill will now be, Import - Export that is 2000 - 1600 = 400 units. You can enjoy huge savings on your electricity bills every month. Your electricity meter becomes like your electricity bank account where you can keep depositing Solar units during the day and use them whenever you want at any time of the day or night. The Solar Meter does all the calculation and nothing changes for you.
Peak power deficits and rising power prices
India continues to be plagued by a persistent demand/supply mismatch with a five-year average energy deficit of approximately 5% through March 2016 according to the Ministry of Power, which has resulted in upward pressure in power prices.
Strong regulatory support
In order to reduce dependence on energy imports and curtail the current trade deficit and the resulting impact on the rupee, the Indian government has taken a number of steps to incentivize the use of renewable sources of energy. To provide further impetus to solar growth, the Indian government launched the Jawaharlal Nehru National Solar Mission, or the NSM, in 2010.
Solar positioned to win among alternatives
India ranks among the highest irradiation-receiving countries in the world with more than 300 days of sunshine per year in much of the country. Solar power generation is viable across most of India, unlike wind and hydro resources which are concentrated in specific regions. In addition, as solar plants can be built near the point of consumption, power produced generally does not incur expensive transmission charges or require infrastructure or transmission investments.
Solar approaching parity
State utilities have seen power costs rise as domestic coal shortages have caused thermal generators to increasingly rely on more expensive imported fuels. An analysis of current tariffs in India indicates that solar power is now competitive with wind, new thermal capacity fueled by imported coal and grid power tariffs for commercial users. Further, diesel power, the most common replacement power source for commercial and off-grid users in the country, is far more expensive than solar power.
