Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

How does temperature affect solar panels?

Solar panels react differently to the operating temperature. The efficiency of a solar panel decreases as it increases above the ambient temperature. Each solar panel has a temperature coefficient (which is defined in datasheet of panels). The temperature coefficient represents the rate at which the panel will underperform at each increase in degree Celsius (°C). Most panels have a temperature coefficient of between -0.2% /°C to -0.5%/°C, when tested under standard laboratory conditions, where ambient temperature is set to 25°C. For example if the temperature coefficient of a particular type of panel is -0.5%, then for every 10C rise, the panel’s output power will reduce by 0.5%.

What are the benefits of installing rooftop solar system?

Reduction of energy bills – Installing solar power plant can help to save substantial amount of money on electricity bills. Per unit cost of energy generated from the solar plant is comparatively cheaper to energy purchased from the utility. Use of underutilized roof area – Installing solar plant on the roof is most effective way to utilize roof. This not only increases the value of the home but also offers multiple financial benefits. Participation in building modern Indian power system – Installing solar power plants supports creation of distributed power generation network and reduces need for extensive use of fossil fuels. Reduce power losses – The energy can be produced though solar power plant on your own roof and can be consumed within your building, which limits transmission losses. Renewable energy source – Unlike fossil fuels and natural gas, the sun is a source of energy that is renewable. Going solar reduces our dependence on the fossil fuels. Shrink your carbon footprint – Going solar reduces the CO2 emissions, the leading cause of climate change and global warming. Like this:Like Loading... Read more

BRPL Solar City Initiative

The BRPL rooftop program is a “utility anchored rooftop program” in the residential sector being hosted by a power distribution company in India. Through this program, BRPL plans to create a platform to catalog and aggregate all interested rooftop consumers in its distribution jurisdiction, starting with single-point delivery consumers in Dwarka and the solar rooftop vendors/integrators who are empanelled by IPGCL, GoNCTD / SECI/MNRE. The program is proposed to be run in line with DERC Net Metering Regulations 2014 and guided by Delhi Solar Policy 2016, aiming to maximize the utilization of solar rooftop potential in Delhi. The program is to be launched under the alias of the BRPLSolar City Initiative. The aim of the program is to accelerate rooftop development within utility jurisdiction by aggregating consumers and bringing in the necessary participation from solar rooftop developers through the creation of a platform. The program also aims at educating the consumer on the benefit of solar energy while ensuring strict quality compliance of the systems being set up.

Delhi Solar Policy 2016

The state government of Delhi had released the Delhi Solar Policy 2016, which is applicable for the four-year period 2016-2020. This policy is applicable for any solar energy generating system with a capacity of 1 kW or more. The policy focuses on promoting an investment climate that enables multiple financial models, from self-owned (CAPEX) to third-party owned (RESCO) models. The promotion of solar rooftop through a combination of generation targets, regulations, mandates, and incentives is at the heart of the new Delhi Solar Policy 2016. This policy applies to all electricity consumers and all entities who construct and operate power projects in Delhi. To achieve Delhi’s solar generation targets, the policy mandates solar installations to be completed within five years on all government-owned rooftops.

Guidelines on net metering of renewable energy systems in Delhi

Delhi Electricity Regulatory Commission (DERC) had issued Net Metering for Renewable Energy Regulations, 2014 to promote the use of Renewable Energy Generation for self-consumption. For effective and proper implementation of these Regulations, the Commission has formulated guidelines elaborating minimum transformer level capacity that must be offered for connectivity, procedural requirements for obtaining connectivity, the technical requirement of the Renewable Energy System, the mechanism for billing, accounting adjustment (both in terms of net off as well as in financial terms) You can know more by downloading the guidelines by clicking here. The DERC has also drafted the guidelines for ‘Group Net Metering’ and ‘Virtual Net Metering’ in 2019. You can download the guidelines on Group and Virtual Net Metering by clicking here.   Like this:Like Loading... Read more
