Rooftop Solar

Rooftop solar is a photovoltaic system that generates electricity from solar panels mounted on the rooftop of a residential building. The various components of such a system include photovoltaic modules, mounting systems, cables, solar inverters and other electrical accessories.

Net Metering

Net metering is a billing mechanism that credits solar energy system owner for the electricity they add to the grid. The energy generated by the Grid Interactive Rooftop Solar Photovoltaic (RSPV) system is first used for self-consumption and the excess energy is injected / exported to the grid automatically. For example, if a residential customer has a PV system on its roof-top, it may generate more electricity than his current usage of the home and the unused / excess energy flows to the grid.

Through Net metering arrangement by using Single Bi-Directional Energy Meter, solar energy exported to the Grid from Grid Interactive RSPV system is deducted from energy imported from the Grid in units (kWh) to arrive at the net imported or exported energy and the net energy import or export is billed or credited or carried-over on the basis of the applicable retail tariff. At the end of the each settlement period (Financial year), any electricity credits, which remain unadjusted shall be paid at a rate of Rs.2/kWH by NPCL. At the beginning of next settlement period, cumulative carried over electricity credits shall be reset to Zero.

The Peak rated capacity (kWp) of Grid Interactive Rooftop Solar Photovoltaic (RSPV) system to be installed by any eligible consumer shall not exceed 100% of the sanctioned/contractual load of the building/consumer as per UPERC RSPV Regulation 2019. This means, if a consumer has sanctioned/contractual load of 5 kW, the maximum RSPV system that can be installed is 5 kWp.

Benefits of Rooftop Solar Net Metering:

  • Reduced Power Bills
  • Low Maintenance
  • One Time Investment
  • Clean & Green Power

NPCL has taken huge leap towards promoting roof top solar power. Get a solar panel installed to enjoy clean and affordable power with savings at every step.
