On Grid Inverter/Net Metring

Technical Specification


  • 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 lease rental.
  • 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 billing cycle.
  • 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.
