2 PREAMBLELaunching of JNNSM in January 2010 by GOI has opened the flood gate for Solar sector in India.Karnataka was the first southern state to introduce solar policy - I in 2011.First state to commission utility scale solar project in India. The state revised its solar policy on in order to add on capacity, and to have energy security and sustainability.State is blessed with 240 to 300 sunny days with good solar radiation of 5.4 to 6.2 kWh / mts /day.Assessment of solar potential - 20 GWp.Moderated potential - 10 GWpState target - 3% of total energy consumption.
4 Objectives: Add solar generation of minimum 2000 MW by 2021 To Translate state into an investor friendly stateTo encourage PPP in the sectorTo promote SRTPV generation and technologiesTo encourage decentralized generation and distributionTo promote R&D , Innovations and Skill development in sector.
5 Minimum targets proposed The Govt. proposes to achieve minimum of 3% of solar energy out of total energy consumed by installing solar plants in a phased manner as below:SegmentUtility scale projects350150Solar RTPV, grid connectivity100-
6 Utility scale grid connected SPV/CSP projects KREDL is the nodal agency for implementing the following projects.Category-1: Projects to promote distributed generation by land owning farmers throughout the state (1 to 3 MW).The capacity allocation for ESCOM is as below:ESCOMs% of total annual energy consumptionCapacity fir the periodBESCOM48%144 MWMESCOM8%24 MWHESCOM20%60 MWGESCOM13%39 MWCESC11%33 MW
7 Category-2Projects selected based on competitive bidding process for capacities more than 3 MW.The minimum project capacity allocation to each solar power product for the grid connected solar power plants will be as follows:The capacity plant under this category exclude capacity under JNNSM programMode of allotmentTechnologyMinimum (MW)Through bidding processSolar PV3Solar Thermal10
8 Category-3 Project under REC Mechanism. Under this mechanism solar energy generators can sell electricity to ESCOMs at APPPC (Average Pooled Power Purchase Cost) as determined by KERC.The minimum and maximum project capacity allocation to teach solar power producer for the grid connected solar power plants will be as follows:There is no limit for cumulative capacity under this category.Mode of allotmentTechnologyMinimum (MW)Maximum (MW)Through ESCOMSolar PV1Based on transmission evacuation capacitySolar Thermal10
9 Category-4 Projects under Captive/Group captive generation. The project developer is allowed to avail RECs in compliance with KERC regulations.The wheeling and banking charges and cross subsidy are as per KERC guidelines.The minimum and maximum project capacity allocation to teach solar power producer for the grid connected solar power plants will be as follows:There is no limit for cumulative capacity under this category.Mode of allotmentTechnologyMinimum (MW)Maximum (MW)Through ESCOMSolar PVNo limitBased on transmission evacuation capacitySolar Thermal
10 Category-5 Category - 5 Projects under Independent Power Producers. Power plants put up for sale of power to third party constitute this category.Projects under this category are not eligible for availing RECs.The minimum and maximum project capacity allocation to teach solar power producer for the grid connected solar power plants will be as follows:There is no limit for cumulative capacity under this category.Category-5Mode of allotmentTechnologyMinimum (MW)Maximum (MW)Through ESCOMSolar PV1Based on transmission evacuation capacitySolar Thermal10
11 Category-6 Projects under Bundled power. State encourages providing solar power bundled with thermal power.The minimum and maximum project capacity allocation to teach solar power producer for the grid connected solar power plants will be as follows:Mode of allotmentTechnologyMinimum (MW)Maximum (MW)Through ESCOM/HLPACSolar PVBased on bundled tariff as agreed with power purchaserSolar Thermal
12 Segment - 2:Grid connected solar rooftop projects and metering The Gok shall promote grid connected solar rooftop projects on public building, domestic, commercial and industrial establishments though net metring and gross metering methods based on tariff orders issued by KERC from time to time.Net metering: Net metering arrangements are proposed (at multiple voltage levels) to focus on self-consumption of energy generated from rooftop PV. The concept is a combination of captive consumption and exchange of power with the utility.For SRTPV system gird tied on a net basis, the surplus energy shall be paid as per tariff determined by KERC.Metering shall be compliance with the CEA.ESCOMS shall define specific guidelines on the standards for connectivity to network.MNRE subsidies shall be through the nodal agency.The Meter reading taken by ESCOMs shall form the basis for commercial settlement.
13 Site requirement & Inter connection voltage The project site/installation location decided based on roof space and usable area for installation of SRTPV.Approved export/import meter shall be installed for net metering purpose.Interconnection voltage:System CapacityVoltage LevelRemarksUpto 5kWp240 V/Single phaseAs per KERC guidelines5 kWp to 50 kWp3 phase/415 V>50kWp11kV
14 Other InitiativesTo amend building by laws in respect of FAR (Floor Area Ration) in co-ordination with BBMP/local bodies and urban development department to exempt FAR in respect of additional floor area created under solar PV panels with light roofing.Solar Off-grid and Decentralized Distributed Generation (DDG):To provide access to electricity where transmission and distribution systems are difficult to establish, solar powered off-grid solutions are encouraged.To encourage options like solar street lights (through local bodies), rooftop SPV systems with battery storage (through ESCOMs and NGO’s) and others in both rural and urban areas for the purpose of reducing dependency on grid.Focus on Solar powered IP sets: To provide energy security to farmers during day time use of solar power pumps is encouraged, as the energy consume by IP sets is 33% of total energy.
15 Other InitiativesSolar Park: Utilize waste land for development of solar park and for power generation.Promotion of distributed generation through small solar parks:Govt. to promote solar park with area less than 100 acres through PPT model with financial assistance of Rs.1 Cr. in the backward districts.Promotion of integrated solar parks:Private participation by providing “plug and play” options for developers.To create private land banks owned by farmers/group of farmers/ associations for development of solar projects and long terms lease upto 30 years.Grid tied canal corridor projects:Deployment of grid connected projects on canal corridor by water resources department on pilot basis subject to purchase of energy by ESCOMs.Grid connected “solar with other renewable hybrid projects”:To encourages such projects with minimum 25% of overall generation coming from respective generation sources shall be promoted through this policy.
16 Policy initiatives:To bring in all HT consumers with connected load of < 50 kVA under SPO (Solar Purchase Obligation).To amend section 95 of Land Reforms Act for deemed conversion of land for solar projects.To empower DCs to approve purchase of agricultural lands U/S 109 of Land Reforms Act for development of solar projects.

30 Surya Raitha SchemeGovt. has announced “Surya Raitha” a novel scheme on for the welfare of farmers.The scheme promotes for harnessing solar power by installing SPV panels in the farmers land to run IP sets and feed-in excess energy to grid.The scheme is proposed for IP sets on the dedicated agriculture feeders.This is applicable for IP sets < 10 HP.Promotion of solar pump under net metering concept.KERC tariff for SRTPV will be adopted.Net meter will register both import and export energy.The billing will be settled as per meter readings.Farmer can avail soft loan from banks and subsidy from MNRE.
31 Pilot: Benefits of the scheme Reduction in realizing of subsidies by Govt. to ESCOMs.Reduction in peak load and energy consumption.Assured quality of power supply to farmers during day time.Improvement in water table.Reduction in green gas emissions and global warm issues.Assured income to the farmers apart from income earned through crops.Pilot:To implement “Surya Raitha” scheme a pilot project is proposed.F-2 feeder from Harobele station (Kanakapura taluk in Ramanagara district) is identified and selected.
32 Scope of pilotReplace existing 250 IP sets by efficient solar water pumps in the pilot feeder i.e.,:-180 x 5HP by 180 x 7.2kWp SPV systems70 x 7.5HP by 70 x 10.8 kWp SPV systemsThe PV capacity over size is done by 50% to enable a self sufficient systems that can pay for itself.To install bi-directional meters for measurement of import and export energy.To keep feeder on from 6am to 6pm during day time for injecting excess energy to the grid.Normally 66% of energy is fed to the pump and 33% to the grid.
33 Key players of the project Karnataka State Government and MNRE:Project sponsorsImplementing Agency (BESCOM):Off-taker of feed-in energy and program implementerSystem Installer:Supplier of net metered solar pump solutionFunding Agency:In the pilot program, the implementing agency (BESCOM) will directly lend to a farmer’s co-operative to enable them in funding the capital cost of the program.
34 Farmers’ Co-operative Farmers’ co-operative consisting of all beneficiaries on the Harobele F2 feeder will be created.The role of the co-operative will be:To work with BESCOM in order to educate and enroll farmers into the program.To facilitate collection of the initial contribution from farmers in conjunction with the implementing agency (BESCOM).To receive a loan from BESCOM and fund the program.To monitor farmer compliance with the program and check illegal use/activity.To administer enrollment of new pumps into the program.To receive on behalf of member farmers, monthly payments from BESCOM for exported energy.To disburse the same to BESCOM against the loan amount raised to fund the program.To disburse to individual farmers on generation based incentive.This function will be automated through the use of an ESCROW structure and the co-operative will only perform a figurative role.

36 ABSTRACT For 5 HP IP set – 7.35 x 180 = Rs.1323 lakhs Metering cost – 25,000 x 250= Rs lakhsMiscellaneous = Rs. 2.5 lakhsThe approximate project cost = Rs. 22 crores(for 250 IP sets)
37 LOAN REPAYMENT Loan is interest free and term is 15years. EMI for 5 HP is Rs.2,600/-7.5 HP is Rs.3,900/-
39 ChallengesNo cap on SRTPV generation compared to sanctioned load as per KERC tariff.When the ratio of solar generation power wrt sanctioned load exceeds a certain load, net meter concept is defeated.In a complex/building of more than 10 installations, consumer may connect to a meter which is recording minimum units or make it dummy.Enjoy feed-in tariff instead of net meter tariff of Rs When the ratio of Export v/s Import energy excess more than 90%.For SRTPV > 50kWp consumer needs to install isolating step up transformer as interconnection point is on 11kV, which increases transformer loss.
40 Inter connection issues when generation is more than 50 KW (For LT consumers). Space constraints for installation of DTC.Up gradation of distribution net work.Power quality concerns of the utilities.Measurement of harmonics generated and injected in to the grid.Billing procedure for SRTPV generators.Settlement of bills and refund issues in case of export.
41 Major milestonesThe Hon’ble CM of State will inaugurate state’s first 1 MW solar power project on Almatti right bank canal.Country’s first Cricket Stadium to go for SRTPV of 400 kWp.Surya Raitha scheme is the first pilot project of nature to be launched in the state.State in the first to go for net metering with attractive tariff of Rs.9.56
42 Way Forward Empanelment of facilitators: Create awareness among consumers.Assist in project planning.Facilitation in installation.Post installation support.Web based application and helpline to assist prospective consumers.Other promotion:Working with World Bank to promote SRTPV.Examining ESCROW models for developers to install on rooftop of owners.Working with financial institutions.Promotion through Media, Radio, TV etc.,
