Under Net Metering Policy, Roof top solar power projects of capacity
ranging from 1 KW to 10 MW can be installed.
The solar power generated in excess of the owner’s electricity consumption
is fed to the grid through a bi-directional energy meter which is capable of
registering both import and export of electricity.
Surplus power exported by the SPV Generator to PSPCL will be banked and
set-off in the Settlement Period ranging from October to September.
The developers or intermediaries can lease out solar PV systems to
interested rooftop owners.
A popular model for residential building owners, where turnkey installers
leases rooftop systems to individual owners who, in turn, pay them a monthly
PSPCL will take energy meter readings for import/drawl and
export/injection of power and generate the bill.
The consumer will be issued Energy Account Statement along with the bill
for charges other than the sale of power i.e. meter rentals, service charges
etc. and the banked energy will be carried forward for accounting in the next
If the net energy flow is from the PSPCL, then the consumer will be issued
the bill for units consumed – units generated.
Electricity duty shall be levied on the billed amount after adjustment of
units under net metering.
The rooftop solar system under net metering arrangement, whether
self-owned or third party owned shall be exempted from banking & wheeling
charges and losses cross subsidy and additional surcharge etc. Open Access
Regulations will not be applicable on such plants.
No parallel operation charges shall be levied as per NRSE Policy 2012.
