 "No Solar Power !!Only "Son-in-law" Power in Rajasthan!!": Narendra Modi

 

Jayal (Nagaur): A day after Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi attacked BJP PM candidate Narendra Modi for alleged involvement in Snoopgate, Modi took aim at the Gandhis. Referring to Sonia Gandhi’s son-in-law Robert Vadra, Modi said that while Gujarat had become a hub of solar power, Rajasthan had become a centre of “son-in-law power.”

 

 

 

Gujarat chief minister Narendra Modi addresses at Shri Ram College of Commerce in New Delhi. PTI

 

 

 

“We have heard of thermal, nuclear, hydro, wind, solar power but in Rajasthan we heard of son-in-law power,” Modi said while addressing a public meeting in Rukedia village in Pali district.

 

 

 

Earlier, Modi addressed a large meeting in the farming heartland of Rajasthan at Jayal in Nagaur district. He said the slogan “Jai Jawan, Jai Kisan” did not hold true in India today as farmers were committing suicide and soldiers were being martyred on the border as the enemy was taking away their heads while air force planes were crashing and navy submarines were exploding. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Jayal is traditionally a Congress stronghold. Wearing saffron jacket and pale kurta, Modi looked tired during his 15-minute speech. The public meeting was held in support of BJP candidate from Nagaur, CR Chaudhary. 

 

 

 

“Only a stable government can reply to threats to our country. To save the pride of the country, a stable government is important. I appeal to you to support us and help us cross the 300 mark (number of LS seats). Temperatures will rise in coming days and people will make travel programmes for summer vacations but before that they should vote for the country,” Modi said.

 

 

 

Modi asked what the Congress, which had ruled the country for 60 years, had done to curb rising prices and to provide employment and basic facilities like water, electricity and roads.

 

 

 

“Rahul Gandhi behaves as if he has come from Mars and is enjoying while his mother is ruling. The exit of the Congress is imminent. Now the public has to decide what kind of farewell they want to give to the Congress. Bharat ko dum wali sarkar chahiye, dama wali sarkar nahi. (India needs a stable and strong government not a feeble one),” Modi said.

 

 

 

Modi had reached Jayal three hours later than the scheduled time as the BJP released its manifesto inNew Delhi. People braved the soaring temperature and sandy whirlwinds and waited patiently for his arrival. State energy minister Gajendra Khimsar and state BJP president Ashok Parnami had to face hooting by the young BJP supporters who were not interested in listening to anyone other than Modi.

 

 

 

“We have come here to listen only to Modi. He is the one who can change the country,” Yogendra Chaudhary, an enthusiastic young supporter at the rally said.
Shouts of “Har, Har Modi” rent the air as Modi reached the venue. BJP national secretary Bhupendra Yadav, state unit president Ashok Parnami and all the BJP MLAs from area were present on the dais. Durg Singh Chauhan, a turncoat who joined BJP from BSP last month and Rajput leader Lokendra Singh Kalvi and Dr Sahdev Chaudhary who joined BJP from Congress last month were present. more..

 Rajasthan plans to install 25000MW of solar power: big target

Rajasthan plans to produce 25,000 MW of solar power and get recognition as a “green State”. The desert State has also worked out a strategy for exporting power to other States.

Additional Chief Secretary (Infrastructure) C. S. Rajan said at a session on “Creating world class infrastructure” organised by the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) here that the State Government had also set a target for installing 10,000 solar pumps for agriculture.

Power, water and road connectivity continued to be the priority sectors in the State, said Mr. Rajan at the session that marked the CII-Rajasthan’s annual day. In the road sector, Rajasthan was planning to construct three corridors from east to west of a total length of 1,100 km, said Mr. Rajan.

Jaipur Vidyut Vitaran Nigam chairman and managing director R. G. Gupta said the power discoms in the State were in a position of strength in terms of distribution and transmission of electricity. He said the discoms would work under the financial restructuring plan.

CII northern region chairman Jayant Davar said the State government must make land available for industries and arrange for adequate supply of water. Infrastructure expert R. S. Ramasubramaniam said a policy of investment, institutional arrangement and infrastructure vision and initiative was essential for creating world class infrastructure.

A reference was made to the Japanese zone in Neemrana industrial area, which has become a model for others to emulate, as well as a special zone attracting the Korean investment.

Mr. Rajan released a report on “Manufacturing in Rajasthan: Agenda for development” on the occasion.more...


 

BHEL, 5 PSUs to set up 4,000 MW solar plant in Rajasthan

 

In a first of its kind venture, six public sector undertakings (PSUs) including state-run Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited (BHEL) and Power Grid Corporation of India Limited (PGCIL) on Wednesday announced joining hands to set up world’s largest 4,000 MW ultra mega solar power project in Rajasthan.

"The MoU signed today will be put up for Cabinet approval and then things will move forward at a fast pace. The land is already there and the basic infrastructure like roads is also available at the site. We hope to get cracking on the project after the approval," Minister of Heavy Industries and Public Enterprises Praful Patel said at the pact signing ceremony in New Delhi.

Also present on the occasion was the New and Renewable Energy Minister, Farooq Abdullah who termed it as a giant step towards unleashing a revolution for achieving bigger goals in solar energy.

According to BEHL chairman and managing director, B.P. Rao, in the first phase of the project, 1000 MW would be made operational. The project will be the largest single location solar plant spread across 19,000 acres at Sambhar in Rajasthan. It entails an investment of Rs. 7,500 crore in the first phase. A special purpose vehicles (SPV) in shape of a joint venture company would be set up for the project.

The JV will have equity of 26 per cent from BHEL, 23 per cent from SECI (Solar Energy Corporation of India), 16 per cent from SSL (Sambhar Salt Ltd), 16 per cent from PGCIL, 16 per cent from SJVNL (Satluj Jal Vidyut Nigam) and 3 per cent from REIL (Rajasthan Electronics & Instruments Limited).

The project will come up on surplus land available with SSL in Sambhar. The equipment will be supplied by BHEL, power evacuation infrastructure will be put up by PGICL, sale of electricity would be done by SECI, operation and maintenance by REIL and project management by SJVNL. The project will be developed in different phases in 7 to 8 years.

The solar PV (photo-voltaic) power plant will use PV modules based on crystalline silicon technology. With an estimated plant life of 25 years, the 4,000 MW of the solar plant is expected to supply 6,400 million units of energy per year and consequently help to reduce CO2 emissions by over 4 million tonnes per year.

Mr. Patel added that Hindustan Salt has 20,000 acre land in Gujarat, where it has been proposed to set up a solar and wind power project of 4,000 MW or more.

NEW FUND TO REDUCE COSTS FOR SOLAR POWER PROJECTS 

A demand for the creation of a separate window under the National Clean Energy Fund (NCEF) has been made by the industry. It may provide a boost to the country’s domestic solar energy projects by providing easy access to finance for such clean energy technology, the industry has stated in a FICCI white paper.

The paper on reducing the cost of finance for solar energy projects through NCEF has been submitted to the government for consideration.

The Fund was announced in the budget 2011-12 and is expected to be a step for funding research and innovative projects in clean energy technology. The white paper in essence, suggests innovative models for sharing and distribution of risk and cost of financing through NCEF as the cost of financing from the domestic Financial Institutions is high. MORE..

The ministry is gradually running out of funds allocated for giving  subsidies , this is a fact .But the advise by FICCI is not germane as it was already commented by  joint secretary  Tarun Kapoor in RENERGY 2013 in chennai  "We are currently getting part of the funds used for subsidy from the National Clean Energy Fund and we are talking to them for more funds," he added.

In wind energy, India is globally positioned at No. 5, generating 11,000 MW after the U.S., Germany, China and Spain,” she said. more..

 

 REC DELIVERS PANELS FOR 5.8 MW RAJASTHAN SYSTEM ! 

Developer REC Solar has completed delivery of 23,200 solar panels to a 5.8MW ground-mount system in Rajasthan.The system is located at Gajner, south-east of Bikaner, Rajasthan which is the second state in India to pass the 500MW capacitymark.“We are delighted to have provided REC Peak Energy Series solar panels for this project in record time”, commented Anil Yadav, head of India market, REC. “We expect the plant to operate efficiently for more than 25 years and to reduce CO2 emissions by around 7,272 tons per year.”Built by AEG Power Solutions Group, REC’s Peak Energy Series solar panels are expected to generate over 9,700MWh of solar energy every year. The construction of the installation was completed in just four months from start to finish. 

Shantanu Agarwal, executive director of BMD that will operate the plant said: “One of the decisive factors for selecting REC solar panels was that we get the maximum yield which in turn translates to more tradable Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs). Since these certificates have a fixed price in a specific time frame, the aim is to maximise the return of investment within this time period and therefore, REC is the right choice.” MORE..

 SOLAR THERMAL CSP PRICING AND FEASABILITY BY NREL

CSP plants with molten salt storage add additional value, but this value depends upon multiple factors and has been hard to quantifyCSP plants with molten salt storage add additional value, but this value depends upon multiple factors and has been hard to quantify

The US Department of Energy's National Renewable Energy Laboratories (NREL, Golden, Colorado, US) has released a new report which quantifies the value that concentrating solar power (CSP) with thermal energy storage can add to California's grid.

“Analysis of Concentrating Solar Power with Thermal Energy Storage in a California 33% Renewable Scenario” puts the value of CSP with storage at between USD 0.030 and 0.051 per kWh above that of “baseload” power, and USD 0.032 to 0.040 above solar photovoltaic (PV) generation. 

“CSP plants switched on during periods of highest consumer demand for electricity resulted in very high capacity value,” states NREL CSP Program Manager Mark Mehos.

 “And the difference in value in CSP plants with and without thermal energy storage depends greatly on the amount of other variable-generation renewable energy sources on the grid, such as wind and photovoltaics.”

 

PLEXOS model used

The report uses the PLEXOS model to quantify the value of CSP in reducing the need for conventional power generation from fossil fuels.

The operational value of CSP is compared in consideration with avoided fossil fuel, avoided emissions from that fuel, as well as reduced operations and maintenance and power plant start costs.

 

Use as reserve power offers added value

NREL states that the study demonstrated several valuable properties of dispatchable CSP, such as its ability to generate power during high-value periods when demand is high, and its ability to be turned off during low-value periods.


The agency says that it found “significant” operational value when CSP is allowed to provide reserve power, including frequently operating at less than full load. NREL notes that this would be a substantial change to current operational practices.

 Under the constraints of the study, NREL found CSP to have a total value between USD 0.097 and USD 0.135 per KWh.

 PROMINENCE OF REC PROJECTS

 

As can be seen there is a growing interest to add projects under the REC mechanism. This represents a paradigm shift in the solar market in Rajasthan with many developers gaining confidence in setting up projects under the REC mechanism. Furthermore, the favourable ruling by the RRECL which stated that RPO would be enforced strictly further boosts the confidence levels on investors.  All this combined has led to about 70 MW being added to the total capacity base under the REC mechanism in 2013 alone. It is likely that this trend will continue into 2013, with additional projects coming up under the REC mechanism and further capacity additions coming up under the recently announced state solar policy. 

It should be noted that all the projects under the REC mechanism have been commissioned towards the end of March 2013 and as such it is likely that the RECs generated from these projects would begin to circulate perhaps from April’s REC trading session onwards. It remains to be seen what kind of impact the availability of RECs from the Rajasthan solar plants has on the REC market since till date, there has been a significant (solar REC) supply deficit.

More than half of the installed capacity is in District Jodhpur, followed by Jaisalmer and Bikaner. The details are given below.

Third Party PPA is a power purchase agreement which a developer can use and claim REC. Third party PPA rec is normally got by goverment authorised power trading companies. Companies that set up large solar plants of size 10MW and above, can approach these comapnies to avail the 3rd party PPA for their solar project in rajasthan.

 

List of inter-State trading licensees or power trading trading companies :

These companies are eligible to provide third part PPA  . Third party PPA plus REC route provides probably the best revenue model  among the other sources of revenue in Solar energy power generation.Companies in RAJASTHAN desirous of monetizing, having strong balance sheets and are capable of investing in large projects like 15MW and above can reach out to them to get a third party PPA.

The Central Electricity Regulatory Commission (CERC) has  released (apr 2013) a second set of (draft) amendments to their REC guidelines. 

  • REC and Reverse Bidding/Tendering – Projects which have signed a PPA through any state tendering mechanisms (reverse bidding) would be ineligible for procuring RECs. The objective of REC is to fund the gap between APPC and the viability.
  • APPC –  The guidelines now clarify that the PPA would have to be signed at a price equal to the APPC price which was prevelant the previous year.
  • Electricity duty and captive generators -  CERC has now proposed to remove the electricity duty exemption as a disqualification criterion as the quantum of contribution to final tariff is quite miniscule. The other criteria for disqualification such as concessional wheeling/banking would still be in force.

 

  • Time period for availing RECs – current regulations state that there is a three month time window after approval from the SLDC to get the required clearance from the central agency. However since the receipt of information from the SLDC sometimes takes more than three months to reach the central agency, it has been proposed to extend the window to six months. In addition to this, currently the application for receipt of the certificates can be made only on the 1st and 15th of each month. This has been revised to the 10th, 20th and last day of each month.
  • No cap on minimum capacity – previously, it was proposed that RE power plants with a capacity of 250 kW and above would only be eligible for certificates under the REC mechanism (subject to approval by MNRE) even though the CERC guidelines do not dictate a minimum requirement. CERC has clarified that there is no minimum capacity and that ANY RE generator would be eligible to claim REC provided they satisfy the prescribed criteria.
    • Retention of RECs –  CERC has now clarified that all RECs generated through a RE captive power plant can be retained by the developer (to fulfill their obligations) thereby reducing the overheads which is subject to verification by the SNA.
  • Shelf-life of RECs – as reported earlier, RECs would now have a shelf-life of two years as opposed to one year and the regulations would be amended accordingly.
  • Date of issuance – any powerplant setup under the REC mechanism would be eligible for RECs from the date of commercial operation or from the date of registration of such plant by the Central Agency whichever is later.

 

All RE Generators are requested to pay fees & charges related to Registartion/Issuance inclusive of service tax @12.36% with immediate effect:

IDEAL LAND

 

Lands for solar power generation projects in Rajasthan - ideal lands ?

 1 mw of solar power plant will need about 5 acres of land 

Agriculutural lands are not allowed to put up a solar generation plant 

Non agricultural lands, non cultivable lands, barren lands, puramboke lands etc are ok

Rocky lands are not ideal for solar power generation 

Many times soil testing of the land is done before deciding the feasibility  

Ideally the land has to be very close to a substation. 11 kva, 33 kva, 66 kva, 132 kva, etc  

For a 1 mw plant 11 kva is ok. 

For each km the substation is away from your land, one has to incur about Rs 10 /12 lakhs for

laying the transmission lines. Better than that is to buy up the land between your land and the

 substation.

 If there is some land between your land and the substation, there will ROW ie right of way

 issues.

 Download google earth and note the longitude and latitude of your land.

 If you inform the above information a good Consultant will be able to assess the potential

 number of units that can be produced per annum

 With the above information, it is possible to make the feasibility report for

 the state nodal agencies, as well as detailed project report for the banks for solar

 power generation business.

  

CAPITAL GAINS TAX

At times some land brokers buy agricultural land and sell and want to sell it of as agricultural land itself to avoid short term capital gains tax. It is adivisable for the potenial developers to buy the converted land by sharing the short term capital gains tax with land broker.


 

 

 MODES OF ACQUIRING LAND FOR SOLAR POWER GENERATION

5.Solar Power Project Financing

Various options available for getting funding for your Solar Power projects are,

1) Asset / Collateral  based Funding
2) Balance Sheet based Funding
3) Project   Funding


1) Asset Based Funding: Individuals and Companies
In asset based funding the lender provides loan for  solar power plants based on valuation of the assets that your company has or you  have and that you can offer as collateral security for the loan.

You can even get 100 % funding depending upon the value of the collaterals.

Normally for most projects, the banks may demand 30 % equity and loan can be given for 70%.

Some banks in Hyderabad , demand 35 % equity. But if the value of the collateral is high, it can be as said before, 100 % loan..

Many banks ask for Urban property as collateral. It is not actually necessary. Once the banks get used to the performance of solar power generation plants, they will minimise the need for collaterals.

Already many  banks are accepting less than 70 % of collaterals when the projects are pledged.

2) Balance Sheet Based Funding: Companies only
The profit that your company has made in the last three years. The reserves and surplus it has etc will be taken into account and the bank can then fund.

Companies that can avail Accelerated Depreciation  for solar power generation will find it easier to avail loans and lower rates.

Companies should note that it is not a fixed rate of interest. Good rapport based on good performance in the past can bring the interest percentage down.

3)Project Funding: Companies and Individuals
 The projected cash flow of the project or more specifically the PPA will determine  the  decision to fund.  Payment security is important.
Many of these types of funding can be got from India as well as from abroad.

With hedging the cost of international funds also tend towards 11% . Indian banks are now getting closer to 12.5 % and if the asset / balance sheet / ppa are sound one could look at lower rate of interest.

The project cash flow is much better in companies that can avail accelerated depreciation for solar power generation. 

COMMISSION FOR GETTING BANK LOAN

There are many Chartered Accountants who help individuals form a company and they also act as agents to get bank loans.

Commission for getting bank loan is approximately  1- 2% at present in rajasthan.

These agents normally help put the loan application for solar power generation plant and submit with two to three banks. This helps them get the best interest rate for solar power generation plants in AP.

For companies, this may not be the ideal route, as they themselves will have a finance /accounts department with access to several banks. Whereas for individuals and NRI's, it makes more sense to go thru such chartered accountants who also help get loans, than trying it on their own.

Individuals, can try on their own, if they have 30% or more equity and or good collaterals. They can then go to more than one bank and try to get the best rate of interest.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Equity funding: This is probably the best way to fund and manage a solar power project. Not many developers will have their own funds. 

Pre financing by EPC companies: This can be done by EPCs.But mostly most EPCs operate on tight budgets. The profits in EPC business is not much and hence to expect funding from them is not right.  

Suppliers credit : Normally given by module manufacturers from usa and china to large customers, it is not equity funding, but it helps a lot.  It is also possible to get such credits from  Inverter makers and Tracking systems makers. That is in case you are going for a tracking system.  Especially those tracking systems that claim over 25 % increase in efficiency can afford to give some credit as they can recover their money from the increased power generated. Many of these companies are funder by VCs and may have provision to give suppliers credit.  

Non-recourse project financing 

This is the preferred financing structure, wherein the lending institutions would provide debt to a special purpose vehicle set-up for the project and would have a lien on the project’s cash-flows. However as this structure does not provide recourse to the developer’s balance sheet, lending institutions require rock-solid agreements for revenues from the projects. The above structure gives an option for obtaining non-recourse Project Financing. However the developer needs to ensure that the following are in place to make the

lending institutions comfortable Performance – Contractual guarantees from technology providers for the long-term performance of the plant revenues – Long-term power purchase agreements with credible consumers, i.e. direct power sale to the consumer. As discussed above, the current structure of the JNNSM PPA may not be bankable due to the credibility of many states. The government has been contemplating a tri-partite agreement between the developer, state discom and the Reserve Bank of India to ensure the PPAs bankability, however this is not confirmed yet.

 RenewableEnergy Certificate – developers can forego the preferential tariff and trade the RECs on the energy exchange. However the market is in its nascent stage and depends on the state’s renewable purchase obligations.

 Project viability – In addition to the above, developers must convince lenders that projects are viable and have the capability of repaying debt without outside assistance. This could mean that the project has to fund a Debt-Service-Reserve-Account in addition to having healthy

Debt-ServiceCoverage-Ratios. 

Other options for financing 

Other non-conventional options for financing include:

 

SBICAPS   SBI Capital Markets (SBICAPS)  

 

finances solar projects.  Foreign banks in general are  open to lending to Indian investment banks for a portfolio of similar projects. This debt is then passed on to the developers with a margin and a hedging charge. The actual lending to the developer takes place based on RBI guidelines. SBICAPS has been involved with the financing of projects developed by Tata Power Co., Kiran Energy, Sunborne, Alex Astral and Acme Tele Power. Other investment banks operating in India include the Bank of America, Barclays Capital, BNP Paribas, Lazard, Credit Suisse,           Export credit agencies / International investment cum insurance agencies     US EXIM 0.7% (LIBOR27) 3.5%  (Margin) 6.5% (Hedging) = 10.7% Loan Up to 80�sed on value of imports 9 – 16 years duration Approx. 1.45  DSCR     Borrowing from the US EXIM bank has certain limitations for projects.    The total consideration of project cost for debt can only be a maximum of 30% over and above the cost of imports from the US. As this financing option is usually based on module imports and prices for modules account for only around 40% of the total project cost, the developer will need to club a US EXIM loan with another source of finance, thereby potentially increasing the cost of procuring debt.    The timelines for financial closure for projects under different policies in India range from six to eight months. Typically, the US EXIM bank can take between six to nine months to process loan requests, straining developers’ execution timelines.   Developers aiming for a US EXIM loan usually have to arrange for alternative bridge financing to carry on the procurement and construction work before the disbursement of the debt amount. The long processing time is attributed mostly to the lengthy legal, technical and financial due diligence undertaken by the bank. Further, the due diligence can increase transaction costs.   US EXIM financing is ideal for projects of size 10 MW and above. Only  such projects can bear the high transaction costs. Moreover, to qualify for US EXIM financing, the project developer must import modules and in some cases other equipment from the US.       

 

Important International  export  credit agencies/export insurance agencies are: Euler Hermes Kreditversicherungs-AG (Germany), China Export & Credit Insurance Corporation (China), Nippon Export and Investment Insurance (Japan), Korea Trade Insurance Corporation (South Korea), Swiss Export Risk Insurance (Switzerland), Export Finance and Insurance Corporation (Australia), OesterreichischeKontrollbank AG (Austria), Export-Import Bank of Malaysia Berhad, (Malaysia), Export Development Canada (Canada), Hong Kong Export Credit Insurance Corporation (Hong Kong).

 

Foreign funding – Large project developers can tap international banks to get

lower rates of finance. However, hedging can put a substantial dent in the rate differential and only someone ready to take the currency risk should resort to this option.

The idea of collecting large number of small projects and approaching exim bank or LIbor , doesnt make much sense. it can probably operate as suppliers credit. At best.

        OPIC   The Overseas Private Investment Corporation (OPIC)is the U.S. government’s development finance institution.  OPIC  supports solar in India by providing  financing, guarantees, political risk insurance, and support for private equity investment funds.  OPIC  has committed  Rs 55 billion  to the renewables sector globally last year and nearly one-quarter of it had been earmarked for India.  OPIC is  involved in financing of projects by Azure Power and Sun Edison in India. 

  IREDA   The Indian Renewable Energy Development Agency (IREDA) is a development funding institution but operates as a NBFC under the administrative control of MNRE for providing term loans for renewable energy and energy efficiency projects. 

IREDA has  a Rs 13 billion  of credit from KfW for a broad mandate of promoting renewable power in India but has not been particularly active in financing utility scale solar projects till date. IREDA also provides loans to other banks at interest rates as low as 2-5% so as to incentivize them to finance renewable projects. Your bank manager can work with IREDA to get low cost funding. It is a less known and less used route.     

ADB   ADB  provides financing support under the India Solar Generation Guarantee Facility (ISGGF), under its Asia Solar Energy Initiative (ASEI) . Apart from providing debt as per ADB’s LIBOR-based lending facility towards solar transmission infrastructure in Gujarat, ADB also considers direct financing and/or guarantees for projects greater than 25 MW. Reliance Power’s 100 MW CSP plant has been partially financed with both debt and equity participation by ADB. Under ISGGF, ADB provides partial credit guarantees (PCGs) available to local and foreign commercial banks that finance private sector solar power plants in the country. This guarantee covers up to 50% of the payment default risk on bank loans made to project developers. Currently, two commercial banks have been approved by ADB as eligible partner banks: L&T Infrastructure Finance Company Limited (India) and the NorddeutscheLandesbank (abbreviated Nord/LB, Germany). ADB aims to support 3 GW of solar power capacity in developing member countries by May 2013.          

KfW and DEG   Germany’s KfW and DEG are also invest in  the Indian solar market. KfW is involved in lending to a 125 MW project by Mahagenco in Maharashtra and DEG has provided Rs 6.80cr  risk capital in the form of Compulsory Convertible Debentures (CCDs) to Azure Power     Other active sources for funds Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA), U.K Department for International Development Cooperation (DFID), Netherlands Development Finance Company (FMO), the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD), the European Investmet Bank (EIB) and the Islamic Development Bank (IsDB) 

 Indian banks are being very conservative, insisting on 1.2-1.3 DSC ratio. For project economics to look more attractive to developers, DSC ratios should be at a minimum of 1.1-1.15. At this rate, the attractiveness of several projects begins to change substantially.

 

L&T Infrastructure Finance Company (subsidiary of L&T Financing Holdings),

Rajasthan gets largest solar REC project  

An Indian company has built solar generators capable of producing up to 33 MW of energy, the largest to be undertaken under the nation’s new Renewable Energy Credits scheme. Giriraj Enterprises Ltd. started output from 3 projects last week with three generators producing 19, 11 and 3 MW (totaling 33MW) of energy, all located within the western state of Rajasthan.

Under the country’s new Renewable Energy Credits scheme, companies like Giriraj, a tobacco trading giant, are investing in solar generators to produce clean, renewable power. The new scheme forces state power distributors to buy a portion of their electricity from clean sources, resulting in profit for those companies capable of putting the infrastructure in place to yield this clean energy.

The Tobacco trader has signed a power purchase agreement (PPA) with a local state-owned electricity distributor in Maharashtra state, enabling them to sell electricity at an average price of 2.7 rupees a unit. The company is hoping to trade up to 53,000 units a year.

Indian demand for renewable-energy credits, or RECs, almost tripled last month to 435,481 as the fiscal year drew to a close, making the business scheme a profitable one. Solar credits can be sold for up to 13,400 rupees apiece on the Indian Electricity Exchange, according to REConnect Energy Solutions Pvt.

Bharat Bhushan, a New Delhi-based analyst, is however surprised to see such large investment from private companies in the Indian REC market, considering it to be, “risky and unpredictable”, recently stating, “Thirty-three megawatts is the largest solar REC project in India, it is not a normal practice to see such large investments in solar RECs.” source

  ACCELERATED DEPRECIATION WHAT IS AD? WHO CAN CLAIM AD? ADVANTAGES FOR AD CLIENTS IN SOLAR PROJECTS

 What is Accelerated Depreciation in solar power generation and how can I benefit from it? 

 

 

 




 ADVANTAGES AND DISADVANTAGES OF SETTING YOUR SOLAR PLANT IN A SOLAR PARK 

 


ADVANTAGES OF A SOLAR PARK

1. Ready to move & start facility for any solar power developer with clear title land.

2. Proper North-South oriented plots to be allotted so as to reduce land wastage, which are ideal for solar plant designing

3. Reduction in time to both start and execute the project.

4. No ROW (right of way) issue will be there for laying of transmission line, which will be done only once and common to all.

5. Ease of work execution and management will be there.

6. Relief from local issues which again will result into time and money saving in project execution.

7. Evacuation from individual project will be done right from the individual plot to the discom’s substation at 132KV level.

8. Reduced transmission losses to the tune of 1/16th of the normal at 33KV.

9. Individual plant metering at pooling substation for ease of billing.

10. Security, preventive maintenance of approach roads & transmission line etc. will be done on periodic basis.

11. Grid down time is also minimum for 132 kV sub-station, which means higher revenue
generation

12. Better financials than in your own lands.


DISADVANTAGES OF A SOLAR PARK

1. Your project is not in your state, benefitting your people

2. Your project is not in your lands. Absence of Prestige value in the neighbourhood.

3. You can’t to do the maintenance of the solar power plant directly and daily in your village


* Don’t have lands? See solar as a business opportunity. Go for Solar park.

* Want to invest in and  reap regular dividends with least hassles. Go for Solar park

* Interested in availing accelerated depreciation and making decent safe returns, invest in a solar park.

  Land acquisition in Rajasthan for Solar power thru PPA 


RREC has come up with a provision that allows developers to identify revenue land for project development before the bidding process and block it with state revenue department through RREC.
The land which is identified for the project is checked for category and availability by the local Patwari (lowest revenue official). Developers need to make tentative maps of the site.
An application is then sent through RREC (along with maps) to state revenue department. After processing the application, state revenue department blocks the land against the registered project for a period of maximum 3 years. A fee of Rs 100,000/MW has to be paid for blocking of land.
In case of private land a MoU can be signed with the land owner. (land blocking can happen only for revenue land and not private land). 


Challenges

1. 
Leasing land for establishment of weather monitoring station in a specific region is a challenge as it has the potential of driving up land prices once the project starts land acquisition
2. 
Obtaining contiguous land especially from private parties is very difficult as multiple buyers have to agree to the same. Even in case of one or two backing out, the project could face considerable logistical issues in project development.
3. 
Acquisition of land, especially private land can be a very politically sensitive issue. There is a need for the developer to continuously communicate and interact with the local population around the project from the time the decision is made to after commissioning and also convey to the local community the advantages that would accrue to them from the project
4.Right of way issues would need to be evaluated up front as these have the potential to cause large delays in project commissioning.

 

 

 SEVEN STEPS TO DESIGNING

 A SOLAR CAPTIVE POWER PLANT FOR A FACTORY 

 There are seven steps involved in designing a successful captive solar PV installation 

 

  • Scoping of the project
  • Calculating the amount of solar energy available
  • Surveying the site
  • Calculating the amount of energy needed
  • Sizing the solar system
  • Component selection and costing
  • Detailed design

 

Step 1 –SCOPING THE PROJECT

 

As with any project, you need to know what you want to achieve. This basically involves detailing what you want from the captive PV installation, once installed. Do you want it to completely provide your day time electricity usage? Or do you want it to support a part of your usage? To start with, the scope of the project can be simple and later as we progress we can flesh it out to suit the requirements.

 

Defining the scope is in fact the most important step because once the basic scope is wrong, we might not be able to get the system do, what we exactly want it to do.

 

Step2 - CALCULATING THE SOLAR POWER AVAILABLE

 

Solar insolation is the amount of electromagnetic energy (solar radiation) incident on the surface of the earth. Basically that means how much sunlight is shining down on the area under consideration.

 

The values are generally expressed in kWh/m2/day. This is the amount of solar energy that strikes a square metre of the earth's surface in a single day. Of course this value is averaged to account for differences in the days' length. There are several units that are used throughout the world.

 

By knowing the insolation levels of a particular region one can determine the number of PV modules that are required. An area with poor insolation levels will need a larger number of PV modules than an area with high insolation levels. Once the region’s insolation level is known, one can more accurately calculate collector size and energy output.

 

The typical thumbrule that is used for the amount of electricity that solar PV can produce is as follows: On average, 1 W of solar PV, at current crystalline silicon panel efficiencies, can produce about 4 Wh of electricity per day. This is however only an average estimate and based on the location, this could be a bit lower or higher than the average.

 

Step 3 – SURVEYING THE SITE

 

A site survey basically consists of a brief interview with the developer to get a feel for their electricity needs and a physical inspection of the proposed array site to see if it is suitable for solar. When a qualified photovoltaic design professional visits a potential solar site, he or she has many things to watch out for.

 

Primarily, they will be checking the roof's orientation (azimuth) and solar access. Orientation refers to the direction the roof faces - directly south is ideal, with some leeway to the Southwest or Southeast.

 

Solar access quantifies the percentage of time when the proposed array location will be receiving the full unshaded power of the sun during different days of the year. A shady roof might disqualify a site from receiving incentive money from the state, and is not a responsible choice for solar anyway. There are ways to get around shade issues - either by looking at alternate sites, trimming or removing trees, or by using micro-inverters in the system design rather than one large central inverter.

 

Step 4 - CALCULATING THE AMOUNT OF ENERGY NEEDED

 

The next big task for any photovoltaic system designer is to determine the system load. This load estimate is one of the key factors in the design and cost of the stand-alone PV system.

 

A simple way to determine the approximate ceiling for the solar PV system capacity for all electricity needs is as follows:

 

1.  Find out your total monthly electricity consumption. Let’s say it is 100000 kWh

 

2.  Divide it by 30 to get an approximate daily consumption. In the example, it is about 3300 kWh.

 

3.  Using the thumb rule that 1 W of solar PV can approximately produce 4 Wh of electricity per day, you can determine the approximate maximum solar PV capacity you will require to power all your systems using solar PV. In this case, if the total daily consumption of electricity is 3300 kWh, you will require a maximum of 3300/4 = 825 kW.

 

 4.  It is however very unlikely that you would require such a high capacity for solar PV as you will need solar PV primarily as a backup power source, perhaps as a replacement for diesel based power generation.

 

 Ceiling for the solar PV required for complete diesel replacement

 

 In most cases, you will be using solar only as a backup power source to replace diesel based power production.

 

6.  One simple way to determine the amount of solar PV for this purpose is to determine the total amount of electricity you produce using diesel every month. In the example provided, out of the 100000 kWh of total electricity you consume every month, let’s say 10% or 10000 kWh is generated from diesel gensets. This provides you the ceiling for the solar PV system capacity for complete diesel replacement. In this case, it is 82.5 kW.

 

 7. As a thumb rule, one litre of diesel produces 4 kWh, so you can also compute the above with the data for the amount of diesel used every month.

 

 While estimating the load, the designer should consider energy conserving substitutes for items that are used often. Identifying large and/or variable loads and determining if they can be eliminated or changed to operate from another power source will save cost. 

 

 Step 5 – SIZING THE SYSTEM

 

 From the results obtained in step 2 and step 4, we can determine the size of the solar system that will be needed to power the site. The necessary systems involved in the setting up of captive power plants are:

 

 1)      Array(collection of solar PV modules)

 

 2)      Charge controllers

 

 3)      Batteries

 

 4)      Inverters

 

 5)      Mounting systems

 

 Note: The exact procedure for sizing of a solar system has to begin with calculating the amphere hour (Ah) of each load under consideration. Without knowing this it is impossible to size the PV system.

 

 PV array sizing – Array sizing is determined by taking into account the daily energy requirement (in Kilowatt hours) and average daily peak sunshine hours in the design month.

 

 No part of a PV array can be shaded. The shading of small portions of a PV module may greatly reduce output from the entire array. PV modules connected in series must carry the same current. If some of the PV cells are shaded, they cannot produce current and will become reverse biased. This means the shaded cells will dissipate power as heat, and over a period of time failure will occur.  However, since it is impossible to prevent occasional shading, the use of bypass diodes around series - connected modules is recommended

 

 Hybrid Indicator

 

 At this point, the basic PV system configuration and size have been determined. Before proceeding to specify components for the system, a simple test is recommended to see if the application might be a candidate for a hybrid system.

 

 Two main indicators work together to alert the designer to a possible hybrid application; the size of the load, and the seasonal insolation variability at the site.  The larger the load the more likely a hybrid PV-generator system will be a good economic choice. Likewise, in cloudy climates you need a larger system to meet the load demand; thus having a higher array/load ratio. Plotting the load versus the array/load ratio gives an indication of whether a hybrid system should be considered. There may be other reasons to consider a hybrid system: for example, systems with high availability requirements or applications where the load energy is being provided by an existing generator.  A word of caution--the controls required for a hybrid system are more complex because the interaction between engine generator, PV array, and battery must be regulated. Obtaining advice from an experienced designer is recommended if you decide to install a hybrid system. 

 

 Controllers - Charge controllers are included in most photovoltaic systems to protect the batteries from overcharge or excessive discharge. Overcharging can boil the electrolyte from the battery and cause failure. Allowing the battery to be discharged too much will cause premature battery failure and possible damage to the load. The controller is a critical component in your PV system. Thousands of rupees of damage may occur if it does not function properly. In addition, all controllers cause some losses (tare loss) in the system. One minus these losses, expressed as a percentage, is the controller efficiency.  The cost of the controller increases rapidly as the current requirement increases. Controllers for 12-volt and 24-volt systems with currents up to 30 amperes are available at a reasonable cost. Controllers with 30- 100 amperes are available but 2-5 times more expensive. Controllers that will switch currents over 100 amperes are usually custom designed for the application. One way to work with currents over 100 amperes is to connect controllers in parallel. It is often less expensive to use five 20- ampere rated controllers in parallel than one 100-ampere unit. 

 

 The controller must be installed in a weather resistant junction box and can be located with other components such as diodes, fuses, and switches. Excessive heat will shorten controller lifetime so the junction box should be installed in a shaded area and venting provided if possible. Controllers should not be mounted in the same enclosure with batteries. The batteries produce a corrosive environment that may cause failure of electronic components. 

 

 Battery sizing - To determine the size of the battery storage required for a stand-alone PV system, it is required to make a number of decisions. Before making these choices, one should study and understand battery parameters and the concept of system availability. First, you must choose the amount of back-up energy you want to store for your application. This is usually expressed as a number of no sun days, in other words, for how many cloudy days must your system operate using energy stored in batteries. There is no “right answer” to this question. It depends on the application, the type of battery, and the system availability desired.

 

 Inverters - Power conditioning units, commonly called inverters, are necessary in any stand-alone PV system with ac loads. The choice of inverter will be a key factor in setting the dc operating voltage of your system.

 

 When specifying an inverter, it is necessary to consider requirements of both the dc input and the ac output.   The choice of inverter will affect the performance, reliability, and cost of your PV system. Usually, it is the third most expensive component after the array and battery. 

 

 The selection of the inverter input voltage is an important decision because it often dictates the system dc voltage.

 

 An inverter should be installed in a controlled environment because high temperatures and excessive dust will reduce lifetime and may cause failure. The inverter should not be installed in the same enclosure with the batteries because the corrosive gassing of the batteries can damage the electronics and the switching in the inverter might cause an explosion. However, the inverter should be installed near the batteries to keep resistive losses in the wires to a minimum. 

 

 Mounting structures- Ground mounting of PV arrays is recommended for stand-alone systems. Regardless of whether you buy or build the mounting structure make sure it is anchored and the modules are restrained. Many module manufacturers and distributors sell mounting hardware specifically designed for their modules. This hardware is intended for multiple applications and different mounting techniques and considerations like wind loading have been included in the design. Using this mounting hardware is the simplest and often the most cost effective. Customized array mounting structures can be expensive.   

 

 Others- It is important to select wire, connectors, and protection components such as switches and fuses that will last for twenty years or more. To obtain this long life, they must be sized correctly, rated for the application, and installed carefully. Connections are particularly prone to failure unless they are made carefully and correctly. 

 

 Step 6 – COMPONENT SELECTION AND SIZING 

 

 Once the various components have been sized, the next important step is the selection and costing of the components.

 

 There are many players in the market vying to establish their products. At this juncture, the system developer has to select components by taking into account factors like technical specifications, reliability, and lifetime of the components in addition to the cost.

 

 Investment for the solar modules is for a period of 25 years, so selecting a high efficient solar panel is of prime importance. The manufactures of the batteries claim a lifetime of about 7 years, whereas inverters guarantee at most 2 years. As can be seen from these numbers, selection becomes a crucial part of the captive solar PV installation.

 

 Step 7 – DETAILED DESIGN

 

 Now that the major components have been sized and selected, it is time to consider how to interconnect everything as a working system.

 

 The detailed design is the more actionable form of the captive solar PV installation. The system developer accumulates all the data collected from the previous 6 steps and prepares a layout of the installation on paper. The developer removes obvious engineering fallacies and prepares a corrected version of the layout on paper.

 

 The confirmed design will have all the necessary data like the average consumption per day(kWh), the insolation levels at the area under consideration(in hours) , the optimal plant size, the area required for the same, the number of panels required to be installed in that area, the number of charge controllers, batteries, inverters required for the determined plant size, the cost of all the components and many more intricate details like the viability of installing tracking systems etc.

 

 Stand-alone PV systems will be reliable power producers for more than two decades if properly sized for the application, engineered well, and installed carefully. PV arrays for stand-alone systems are installed in many unique and innovative ways. However, there are common issues involved in any installation, whether the array is fixed or tracking, mounted at ground level, or on a pole or building. 

  Preventive Maintenance

  The integral part of any completed installation is the periodic checks that are recommended for any stand-alone PV system so that little problems can be found and corrected before they affect system operation. The system should be checked soon after installation when it is presumably operating well.

  STEPS INVOLVED IN DESIGNING A ROOF-TOP SOLAR PV SYSTEM WITH BATTERY BACKUP

 

A stand-alone PV plant for AC and DC loads: 

 The broad steps involved in designing a roof-top stand-alone solar PV plant are: 

  1. Estimation of total loads and energy
  2. Selection of an inverter
  3. Sizing of battery bank
  4. Sizing of PV array
  5. Selection of other components
  6. Installation and commissioning
  7. Testing and evaluation 

Estimation of total loads and energy: 

  1. Sum the total AC connected watts
  2. Sum the total DC connected watts
  3. Calculate the AC average daily energy requirement
  4. Divide this by the inverter efficiency to obtain the DC energy required to the AC load
  5. Calculate the total energy requirement due DC loads
  6. Add the DC energies obtained by step 4 and step 5
  7. This quantity is the total DC energy load on the battery bank 

Selection of inverter:

  1. The capacity of the inverter must be more than that of the total daily average AC loads, including their surge requirement
  2. The nominal DC input voltage of the inverter will be the battery bank voltage and is decided by the design of the inverter
  3. The output will be single phase or three phase , 230/440V  & 50Hz, to be compatible to the AC loads requirement
  4. The conversion efficiency at minimum load (10%) should be 80%
  5. Total Harmonic Distortion (TDH) < 3%
  6. The wave shape, crest factor, power factor etc, to be as per the load requirements 

Battery bank sizing: 

  1. The total DC energy ÷ the nominal input voltage gives the daily Ampere Hour (AH) requirement from the battery bank
  2. The daily AH hours X autonomy ÷ discharge limit provides the battery bank Ampere hour capacity
  3. Battery bank AH capacity/Individual battery AH gives the number of batteries in parallel (generally it is 1)
  4. DC system voltage ÷ the battery voltage gives number of batteries in series

 PV array sizing: 

  1. Average daily AH requirement from the battery ÷ battery columbic efficiency gives the AH to be put in by the PV array in a day
  2. AH required from PV array ÷ average peak sun hours in a day of the site gives Amperes required from PV array
  3. Amperes from array peak ÷ panel (or module) peak ampere gives number of PV panel strings required in parallel
  4. Nominal system DC voltage ÷ nominal operating module voltage gives the number of SPV modules in one series string
  5. Number of modules in one series string X number of parallel strings gives the total number of SPV modules in the power plant
  6. Number of PV modules X PV module wattage is the total PV array wattage 

 Other components:  

  1. Charge controller maximum current capacity should be one and half times that of total short circuit current of all parallel strings
  2. The total open circuit voltage of all the modules in series should give the maximum voltage of the charge controller
  3. The cables connecting the module to Junction boxes, to that of DC board and battery bank should be selected as per the standards
  4. Cut-outs, fuses and other control components should be as per the National standard of Electrical current ratings 

Key words: Solar PV, photovoltaic system design, PV arrays, total AC and DC loads, selection of inverter for SPV, battery bank sizing, SPV array sizing, charge controller, SPV module, ampere hours (AH) 

Easy Steps to Plan your solar roof top solution


Solar power energy systems are not inexpensive.
Nor are they too expensive.
At present many households and factories, just need power.
Not many are asking as to when they will get the capital back. 

Here is a news item in The Hindu saying that in a few years
the electricity tariff will be Rs 13 or Rs 14/-

 

(http://www.thehindu.com/news/cities/Madurai/small-units-plan-to-tap-solar-power-in-a-big-way/article4002924.ece)

 

So, it makes sense to go solar right away. 

 

 

Step 1: List your equipment

 Number of Fans and no of hours u need it per day 

Similarly list all electrical devices at home that u need to run in solar power 

Lights, Refrigerator, grinder, oven, etc.,

 Approx electricity bill per month 

Step 2: Roof area you have in square feet

 

Step 3: Do you want a battery? If yes, for how many hours.

Rajasthans solar potential 

 

Rajasthan's potential for tapping solar energy is being altered by high cost of solar cells, relatively low efficiency cells and shortage of batteries. These areas have vast potential for research and technology for engineering students, said president of International Academy of Astronautics and former chairman of Indian Space Research Organization,Madhavan Nair. He was here as the chief guest of 7th convocation ceremony of Malaviya National institute of Technology (MNIT) on Sunday.

 

He stressed on the need for engineering students to take up the responsibility for developing affordable technology for issues like food security and energy security. "You have to find technical solutions to the problems facing modern India. The solutions should be designed keeping in mind the Indian conditions and making them cost effective so that they are within the reach of rural India and urban poor," said Nair.

 

He asked engineering students to volunteer to take up such challenges rather than be lured into routine IT jobs. "You have to bring out the innovator in you to solve the problems of developing India. Once your bright idea converts it can be commercially exploited on 'high quality at low cost' and you can capture not only the Indian market but also meet the global needs," said Nair.

 

He also told the graduating students to realize that the society has invested in them by providingimpressive infrastructure and training and now it is their responsibility to return it. "While you are building your career and improving you must not forget to return some part of your knowledge wealth to people who are needy," said Nair, whose speech received applause from all the students, parents and the faculty. He concluded his speech by saying that India's all round development is not possible without the development of six lakh villages. "The engineering community has to play a major role in this regard," said Nair.

 Rajasthan State Regulatory Structure for Renewables

 1.      RE Status

  APPC calculation process:  Average price of purchase of electricity by distribution licensee in previous year, excluding short term power purchase and power from RE sources.

 8. Discussions

 Rajasthan has immense solar potential; wind and biomass are also having good scope. State has seen quite nice growth in wind and biomass power plants in past years. Though solar is still nascent, with number of projects lined up this technology is also expected to grow well.

 The tariff determination process in state is quite attractive and easy to understand, thus it will attract many investors, though the only problem is low RoE as compared to what is specified by CERC.

 State has an aggressive RPO specified, in FY10, it was not met fully, but with so many RE projects in pipeline, they are expected to meet their RPO in coming years.

Auctioning Contracts for 100 MW photovoltaic and 100 MW solar thermal

Rajasthan called for bids to set up 200 meg­awatts of solar-power proj­ects after delaying the pro­cess for almost a year. The state is auctioning contracts for 100 mw of photovoltaic plants and 100 mw of solar-thermal plants, according to bidding documents posted on the website of the state-run Rajasthan Renewable Energy Corporation.

While the northwestern state, which has some of India’s most promising terrain for sun power, called for bids last December, it never carried out the auction. Bids this time are due by January 11, and will be opened the same day, according to the documents. Rajasthan receives on average the most solar irradiation in India after the neighbouring state of Gujarat, according to a joint study by the India meteorological department and the ministry of new and renewable energy. Contracts are available for photovoltaic projects of 5 or 10 mw each and for solar-thermal plants of 50 mw each.

Solar thermal technology uses sunlight to heat liquids that produce steam for generators, while photovoltaic plants use panels to turn sunlight directly into power.

Companies can bid for both types and also import equipment and technology for their projects, according to the agency’s rules. Developers will have a year to complete photovoltaic pla­nts and two years to complete solar-thermal plants, it said.

Plans to install four solar units of 30 KW each and one of 1 megawatt in the next six months 

That a state with abundant sunshine should set an example in using solar energy to meet most of its requirements is still a distant dream.

But, the Central University of Rajasthan, in a first-of-its-kind initiative, has shown the way by meeting 60% of its energy needs through solar energy.

The university is the first in the state and among the eight central universities formed by the HRD ministry to have successfully channelized solar energy to meet daily requirements.

The university campus has four buildings with a monthly requirement of 600 kilowatt electricity (for November), of which 420 KW is generated by solar panels.

The energy is used to heat around 80,000 litres of water and light up 62 electric poles in the campus.

In addition to being eco friendly, the method is also proving to be cost effective for the university.

It is now planning to install four solar units of 30 KW each and one of 1 megawatt in the next six months to become the first university in the country to run 100% on a renewable source of energy.

So far, Rs 3 crore has been sanctioned by the management for the project.

The university lies in the tropical region and receives enough sunlight to meet 100% energy requirements for eight months barring months of monsoon and winter.

Fulfilling its commitment of promoting 'sustainable development', the university has installed 62 electric poles of 400 watt each across the university driven by solar panels.

"These automatically become active after sunset and switch off automatically during sunrise. Throughout the day the cells recharge themselves to a level that they could run for 16 hours," said Adarsh Tyagi, assistant engineer, CPWD, Ajmer.

Furthermore, the solar energy is also used for heating 20,000 litre of water every day in each of the four buildings to provide uninterrupted supply of hot water during winter.

Fans, tube lights, computers and other equipments below 9 KW can be operated by solar energy. Once the upcoming projects will see the light of the day, the university will join the league of world's few academic places promoting sustainable development.

"The production of solar energy is phenomenal and unexpected. Soon, in future we will attain self reliance in terms of power requirement. We would be utilizing the space for tapping the solar energy so that in future we can help in the electrification of nearby villages which still don't have power connection," said M M Salunkhee, vice-chancellor of CU-Raj.

Rajasthan calls for bids to set up 200 MW solar power project

Rajasthan receives on average the most solar irradiation in India after the neighboring state of Gujarat, according to a joint study by the India Meteorological Department and the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy.

 

Contracts are available for photovoltaic projects of 5 or 10 megawatts each and for solar-thermal plants of 50 megawatts each. Solar thermal technology uses sunlight to heat liquids that produce steam for generators, while photovoltaic plants use panels to turn sunlight directly into power.

 

Companies can bid for both types and also import equipment and technology for their projects, according to the agency’s rules.

 

Developers will have a year to complete photovoltaic plants and two years to complete solar-thermal plants, it said.

Shree Ganesh Jewellery House limited is planning to exit from the solar power generation business due to objections from its board, according to BL.

This February, Shree Ganesh forayed into solar power business by acquiring 55% stake each in PV (photovoltaic) companies - Alex Astral Power Limited and Alex Spectrum Radiation Limited for R100 Cr from Surekha group.

The company had entered the renewable energy business to diversify its portfolio and to leverage on tariff and tax incentives.

The company had 30 MW assets already commissioned as of April 2012. The company also commissioned two 25 MW solar power projects in Odisha and Gujarat, and a 5 MW solar power project in Rajasthan early this year.

It also plans to commission two additional solar power units of 25 MW and 50 MW each, and intends to commission 500 MW in three years through private equity participation and accruals.

 Incorporated in 2002 by Shree Ganesh Group of Kolkatta, Shree Ganesh is engaged in trading and manufacturing & export of handcrafted/machine-made plain & studded gold jewellery and diamond jewellery over the last five decades. The company markets its jewellery products under the brand name, ‘GAJA’.

This fiscal the company entered into a 50:50 JV with Societa Aretina Lavorazione Preziosi S.P.A. (SALP SPA) which will operate under the name of OROITALIA Chains Private Limited and total investment will be to the tune of R100 Cr towards working capital by the company.

However, the company later clarified on BSE that it has neither decided nor has any plans as of now to exit the solar power business.

The 40 MW solar photovoltaic (PV) plant of Reliance Power in Rajasthan has generated over 30 million units of solar power in the first six months of the current financial year, company officials said.

Confirming this, a company spokesman said that the project benefited from delayed monsoon this year, and its location advantage in Rajasthan.

The unit is located in Dhursar, Pokaran in Rajasthan and was constructed in record 129 days. Since commissioning, the plant generated 3.0378 crore kW/hr of energy.

Solar modules

According to company officials, the higher generation was on account of the plant using thin film solar modules which are highly suitable for hot areas like Rajasthan.

Apart from this, the location of the plant is in one of the highest sun irradiance areas in India. With the absence of sand dunes in surrounding areas, the loss on account of soiling is lower.

It was set up with an investment of Rs.700 crore.

The Opposition BJP in Rajasthan on Friday alleged that the UPA Government at the Centre and Congress Government in the state has unduly facilitated companies, owned by party supremo Sonia Gandhi’s son-in-law Robert Vadra in procuring 10,000 bighas of land in the prime solar zone of Bikaner and Jaisalmer districts.

Addressing a press conference here, BJP secretary Kirit Somaiya said the Non-Conventional Energy Ministry at the Centre and the state government officials here had extended all help and cooperation to Vadra’s companies in establishing his solar land bank.

The land deals took place at a throw away price of Rs 35,000 per bigha — against the market value as high as ten folds — during 2010-11 and 2011-12 prior to announcement for creation of solar energy zone in the above two desert districts.

‘The Rajasthan Government has even amended law to facilitate Vadra to purchase this huge land and officials at all levels, including district collectors, tehsildar, land registration offices extended him red carpet treatment during processing of land deals,’ the BJP leader alleged.

‘The announcement of developing solar energy zone was made after formalising these deals, this was a planned move to benefit Vadra’, Somaiya said, adding that now every company desirous to put solar energy plant has to buy land from Vadra’s companies. He said the Ashok Gehlot Government should come forth with a public explanation on this solar land scam.

L&T commissions India's largest solar photovoltaic plant in Rajasthan

Leading engineering major Larsen & Toubro today said it has commissioned the country’s largest solar photovoltaic plant of Reliance Power in Rajasthan with a generation capacity of 40 MW.

The group’s construction arm L&T Construction executed the project owned by Reliance Power at Dhursar Village in Jaisalmer district of Rajasthan from concept to commissioning in 129 days, the company said in a statement issued here.

“With the commissioning of this plant, L&T Construction has installed 114 MW of utility scale solar PV power plants over the last fiscal,” it said.

The plant, which comprises more than five lakh high output generating thin film technology based solar PV modules and thirteen 3.5 MVA power transformers to generate 40 MW, is spread across 350 acres.

The thin film solar PV modules for the project were procured by RPower, while L&T’s scope of work included design, engineering, procurement and construction of the plant, including construction of a 5 km 33 kV double circuit transmission line, the statement added.

The plant, equipped to supply more than 70 million units (MU) of clean and green energy to 75,000 households, is expected to displace nearly 70,000 million tonne of CO2 annually, it said.

Welspun Energy today said it will invest Rs 1,000 crore in setting up a 100 MW solar power project in Chhattisgarh.

Welspun Renewables Energy Ltd (WREL), a subsidiary of Welspun Energy, has inked an MoU with the Chhattisgarh Government for installing 100 MW solar power project, the company said in a press statement here.

The MoU was signed in Raipur.

“The project is to start in 2015, entailing an estimated investment of Rs 1,000 crore,” the company said.

With this project WEL will achieve an annual CO2 emission reduction of 158,118 tonnes. The project will de-carbonize state’s energy portfolio by 2015.

The State Government will facilitate the approvals, land acquisition, registration and clearances for the project.

Welspun is developing more than 250 MW solar and 800 MW wind capacity in Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh and Karnataka.

It plans to commission 1.7 GW of solar and wind power projects within the next three years.

“Welspun Energy...has been in talks with various state governments for expansion of their renewable energy generation portfolio,” the statement said.

Recently, it won Asia’s biggest solar power project of 130 MW through bidding, to be developed in Madhya Pradesh.

“A careful balance needs to be maintained for meeting India’s accelerating energy needs. De-carbonising production and accelerating economic activity has to be balanced,” said Vineet Mittal, co-founder and MD of Welspun Energy Ltd.

“The state governments have to adopt a proactive role. Green energy can be made affordable if more and more states take initiatives to expand their renewable portfolio.

Dependence on fossil fuels must decrease,” he said.

WEL said it is confident that it will be able to source appropriate funding for this project in time.

Mittal said that by successfully commissioning its solar projects within committed timelines, the company has been able to earn the support of private investors.

Testament to this is the recent financial closure of Welspun Energy’s 50 MW solar project in Rajasthan; a consortium of banks led by Central Bank of India have supported this project, he added.

Mittal said however that uncertain policy framework, payment security issues create edginess in investors to support power projects.

Welspun Energy is part of the $3.5-billion Welspun Group, with businesses in power generation, infrastructure, exploration and production of oil and natural gas, steel pipes and textiles.

Welspun Energy is setting up 750 MW of solar power and 1 GW of wind power plants across India, amongst the largest capacities for power generation in the country.

 *Slow progress and legal issues are holding bids from investors since indefinite time and this has led to delay in the state’s solar mission. This has thus made Rajasthan miss the mission target for this year and maybe for the coming few years thus making the state dependent on conventional sources of electricity.

More than 200 MW capacity solar plants were to be commissioned this year which would have started power production for the state by 2014. However, since the power regulatory commission has put its foot down citing technical reasons, Rajasthan will have to wait for at least two years before this 200 MW capacity power plants start producing power for state.

“We had been making arrangements to start projects of about 200 MW till a few months ago, but there is some problem and bids have been postponed indefinitely. Until the matter is decided we cannot go ahead with this,” said an official of Rajasthan Renewable Energy Corporation Limited (RREC).

This will affect the state’s power situation in a major way as the state government had been planning to become self reliant in power generation by 2016. However, now since this project and several others which were to be started after this have been delayed, the energy department will have to seek assistance from central agencies and thermal power companies to generate more power.

“There is a petition we have filed with Rajasthan Electricity Regulatory Commission (RERC) to allow us for the bidding; we hope to hear from them soon,” said AR Patni, Project Manager with RERC. source

The Aditya Birla group plans to invest Rs 6,000 crore in solar power business over the next five years as demand for clean energy rises exponentially. The government has set a target of setting up 20 gigawatts of solar energy by 2022.

The $40-billion retail-to-telecom conglomerate has acquired a minority stake in a solar power venture promoted by Electrotherm in Gujarat's solar park and struck a long-term leasing agreement with Refex Energy in Rajasthan to operate a solar plant at Bithuja in Rajasthan. These units have a capacity to produce 1.55 million units of electricity per mw annually.

* Reliance Power closes CSP solar project funding $ 302 m

India’s Reliance Power has secured and closed direct DFI and ECA funding to develop its Concentrated Solar Power Project located in the state of Rajasthan.

India’s Reliance Power has secured and closed $302 million in total debt financing from international development finance institutions (DFIs) an export credit agency (ECA) and banks to develop its Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) project located in the state of Rajasthan.

 The 100MW project is developed under Phase I of the Jawaharlal Nehru National Solar Mission, which has set a target of 20GW solar power by 2020. It will provide clean energy to India and support the diversification of its energy system which is largely reliable on thermal power....  more 

 Industry estimates are that about 10,000 MW of renewable energy projects will come up with investments of about Rs 60,000 crore in three years. Of this, solar alone is expected to account for Rs 13,000 crore for 1,000 MW.

 Mr Vinayak Mavinkurve, Group Head, IDFC Project Finance and Principal Investments, said private equity will increase with the launch of more projects. “If one excludes private sector utilities such as Torrent, Adani, Tata Power and CESC, most other developers are primarily funded through private equity or IPO. More than 50 per cent of the proposed funding for new projects could be through private equity,” he said. IDFC has funded renewable and clean technology projects worth close to $1 billion (over Rs 5,000 crore).

 

COST DOWN

 The renewed focus on solar projects and the excess solar cell production capacity overseas have led to a sharp fall in solar power project cost. The capital cost for one MW of solar power has come down to Rs 9 crore from Rs 15 crore in 2011. Tariffs have also fallen to Rs 9.40 per unit from Rs 17.90.

 SAFE BET

 Investors find green projects a safe bet given the various delays plaguing other infrastructure projects including government approvals.

 Mr Mavinkurve said private equity investors are drawn to green projects because of the predictable returns, generation-based incentives and expectations of an upside in REC (Renewable Energy Certificate) market.

 The way fossil fuel costs are rising, power from renewable sources could soon become cheaper than thermal, he said. Gujarat, Rajasthan and Karnataka are likely to benefit as these States are close to finalising norms to promote green energy ventures. more

 Lanco Solar's 100 MW concentrated solar thermal power plant to be set up with an outlay of Rs 1,800 crore in Rajasthan will be ready by first quarter next year, said Mr V. Saibaba, Chief Executive Officer.

 This concentrating solar power project will take the company's EPC contract portfolio to 350 MW. The order book is about Rs 4,200 crore.

 The company had bid for a tariff of Rs 10.5 and is at an advanced stage of implementation. Mr Saibaba told Business Line that the company executed about 100 MW of solar photovoltaic plants. These projects include 40 MW of installed capacity of Lanco Solar and 55 MW of installed capacity for other companies.

 The company is executing small projects in all of about 35 MW in France, Germany, the US and Canada. Lanco Solar, a subsidiary of Lanco Infratech Ltd, closed the year ended March 31, 2012, with a turnover of Rs 1,870 crore.  more  also

 * ADB, Reliance Power to Develop India's largest solar photovoltaic power plant, Jaisalmer, Rajasthan 

 The Asian Development Bank (ADB) and Reliance Power Limited, one of India's largest private power developers, are joining forces to build what will be the country's largest solar photovoltaic power plant.

 The project is expected to be completed by the second quarter of 2012.

 "India's solar energy potential is one of the highest in the world and this plant will help kick-start large-scale, private-sector solar electricity generation in the country," said Michael Barrow, Director in ADB's Private Sector Operations Department in a press statement issued here on from Manila, Philippines.

 ADB is providing a long-term loan of up to $48 million to finance the 40 megawatt (MW) Dahanu Solar Power Project located in Jaisalmer district in the western state of Rajasthan. The state has one of the highest levels of solar irradiation in India.

 Reliance Infrastructure Limited, a leading private distribution company, will buy the electricity under a long term power purchase agreement to fulfil its renewable purchase obligations set by India's electricity regulators - the first time for a fully private sector transaction in solar power. The power will be distributed to households in Mumbai. source

*There is a race to develop  appropriate solar  technology for Deserts. What is the best solar solution for Rajasthan !!

Concentrating Solar Power (CSP) systems with mirrors, dishes or parabolic troughs focussing the sunlight to raise steam to run a turbines are currently in the lead. There have been some major developments in Spain and the USA, but also now in N Africa and the Middle Concentrating Photo Voltaic (CPV) power - may challenge CSP. CPV uses conventional solar cells but with large arrays and sunlight focussing arrangements, as with CSP. 
The crucial point is that mirrors are cheaper than solar cellsEast, with new projects opening in Morocco (the 470 MW Ain Beni Mathar hybrid project) and Egypt (the 150 MW Kuraymat hybrid project).
A solar industry roadmap, as outlined in a study by A.T. Kearney and the European Solar Thermal Electricity Association, ESTELA, sees solar thermal reaching 12 GW of installed capacity globally by 2015, 30 GW by 2020 and between 60 and 100 GW by 2025.

CSP had higher operations costs and a higher cost of capital than for the residential rooftop system, and there were also transmission infrastructure and efficiency losses, which would increase the cost of power from the CSP plant further. CSP was a valuable ‘grid-stabilizing renewable energy source with storage capabilities,’ so a combination might prove to be the best option.

Table 9:  showing the CUF at various locations.

 

It is very clear that the CUF depends not only on solar radiation level but also on air temperature.

 

 

 Solar Irradiation in Rajasthan:

 Highest annual global radiation is received in Rajasthan (Solar insolation ranging between 6-6.4 Kwh/m2/day in about half of Rajasthan). Large areas of land are barren and sparsely populated, making these areas suitable as locations for large central power stations based on solar energy. Rajasthan received the second largest amount of solar radiation in the world as per DOE. 

 Rajasthan is situated in the north-western part of India. The north-west part of the country is best suited for solar energy based projects because the location receives maximum amount of solar radiation annually in the country.

 Rajasthan Government Initiatives and Incentives: 

The Government of Rajasthan supports development of both solar thermal and solar photovoltaics power generation. Government of Rajasthan is encouraging private sector projects through fiscal and promotional incentives for the renewable energy sector. Parallel efforts are underway in the area of solar PV in which pilot-scale grid-connected solar PV power systems (25 KW to 100 KW) are under trial operations in addition to stand-alone projects in remote unelectrified areas. 

In Rajasthan, the State Government plans to establish a Solar Energy Enterprises Zone (SEEZ) in the districts of Barmer, Jaisalmer and Jodhpur by offering a package of incentives to private investors willing to develop various solar power technologies including solar thermal, solar photovoltaics (SPV), solar chimney etc. 

An International solicitation recently issued by Rajasthan has yielded two 50 MW solar PV power stations as well as one solar chimney project (200 MW) to be operated on an Independent Power Production (IPP) basis.  In Rajasthan, the Indian Government is about to complete a huge new power station using hybrid systems. This fossil fuel/solar hybrid power plant is poised to generate a huge 140 megawatts of electric power, out of which 40 megawatt will be produced from a large array of solar parabolic troughs.

The technology, which is much more cost effective than photovoltaic cells, uses large parabolic mirrors to focus the sunlight to heat a thermal media, like, gas or steam, which in turn drives a turbine generator. The project cost runs to about $1 million per megawatt and is still considered to be cheaper than the others

 Good Opportunity. Already players are active. Both manufacturing and trading opportunities exist.

 ------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 * A low cost solar energy solution for the Indian industries

 Solar Heat for Industrial Purposes, SHIP for short,  the Market in India, the Business, the Opportunity, Cost Advantage of Solar Process Heat.The market for industrial heat in boilers is estimated to be 26 billion US dollars per annum in USA alone. Solar steam produced is estimated to cost $ 4.60 per MBTU compared to average cost of natural gas powered steam of about $ 6 to $ 10 per MBTU. This estimate is as per one the companies in Solar Heat for Industrial processes (SHIP). Indian entrepreneurs should take up such projects that cut down co2 emission and is less expensive. There are several companies that are into SHIP in USA. One of them claims that their process is CO2 emission free. Obviously because they use solar energy. The company also claims a reduction in the cost by as much as 50 %.  That is a lot. Those interested must act fast.

Solar Heat for Industrial Purposes

 (SHIP)

 You can discuss your suggestions, ideas, questions 

 -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

* Captive power plants.

Many factories, companies, office complexes, textile factories, cement factories, sugar mills and many other small and medium industries need back up power. 

What is being talked about as an opportunity is this back up power. Actually already many companies in India already have captive power generation. But there a lot more number of companies in India which can benefit from this captive power plant from solar energy.

 There are some financial benefits and also the benefits of RECs otherwise known as Renewable Energy Certificates which are tradeable. There is good report on this at http://www.eai.in/ref/reports/captive_power.html

 Reading up the report will open up the opportunity for the above mentioned factories for their own backup power ie captive power. Those who are marketing minded and those who are solar energy consultants or renewable energy consultants, this is a very good business opportunity in India.

 

 ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 * Education and training:

 MNRE expects that there is going to be a need for 100,000 trained professionals in the next 8 years. I think that is a gross underestimate. This opportunity is not just for individuals who want to learn and get jobs. Or learn and start a business or set up a training center as a businessman. OR u can even set up an online course for the whole world. The limitations are your imagination. I foresee many training centers both for unskilled and for post graduation education courses happening soon. The course contents given in the sample solar education centers, will be Indianised by the shrewed Indian businessmen. Some of them may go for tie up with universities abroad. For example they may have a tie up with a US university in Pune or a tie up with a European university in Jalgaon.  

Good opportunity to get into Solar education, Training.

  Opportunity exists as a nationwide company, as a college, as a university, providing Graduations/ Degrees or practical training for the blue collars, providing certificates /diplomas.

 When the surge comes there will be a need for trained professionalsCan be a franchisee also.

 * Solar inverters

 In a Global Clean Technology Conference on February 23-24 in New York, with more than 100 public and private companies and 700 attendees, including strategic and financial investors, high-level policymakers and industry thought-leaders in attendance the following question was asked as a part of a Survey.

 Question:

Within solar, which sectors of the supply chain are the most attractive investment themes?

(Please rank with #1 being the strongest):

Inverters 1

Cells/Modules 2

Projects/Installation 3

Polysilicon 4

Manufacturing Equipment 5

Wafers 6

The result of the survey is given in green color.

Inverters!!

 That is why I am calling it a great solar business opportunity in the Indian market too.

 700/800 of the world’s leading practioners have identified Inverters as the most attractive investment theme.

 Solar inverters in India, manufacturers, cost and business opportunities  - You can get to know the business opportunities here.

 You may want to look at http://www.solren.com/residential.html and http://www.solren.com/utility.html

 Manufacturing opportunity is meant for large cos.

 What is the capital subsidy, interest on loan, rebates if any etc can be got from here

 Especially for inverters in Residential rooftops, area wise distribution is an opportunity for the sales minded.

 ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 * Micro grid:  

 The electrical needs of rural households are relatively small (0.5-2.5 kWhr per day) and a micro-grid system of 20-35 kW would suffice a small village. This may not be a 100 % solar solution. The solution to the villages can be hybrid.

 Will research and write more about this opportunity soon.

  ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 *. Solar Irrigation Pumps: 

 This is a big opportunity area. Already being catered to in many villages.

 Great opportunity in upcountry markets for individuals and small companies.

  ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 *. Solar thermal

 India on an average has 300 clear days of sun and the radiation in most parts is 4.5 to 6 kWh/m2/day, which is pretty high. Solar thermal projects  concentrate sunlight on a fixed point and uses a medium to move the stored heat energy to a place where it can be converted into electricity by superheating water into steam and using the steam to turn a turbine that generates electricity—ultimately the same process that natural gas and coal-fired power plants use to generate electricity.

 Solar dryers can be used in agriculture.At present the waste is just exposed to the sun and dried. Solar water heating. It is being made mandatory in many states to heat water for bathing purposes with solar water heater in all new buildings. Solar thermal can be used for cooking, community cooking in hotels, villages, schools in villages, etc. Several industries that need low to medium heat can use solar thermal technology to reduce air pollution and carbon foot print.  

This opportunity is for the technically minded. This opportunity exists for small medium and even big companies.

 -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 * Manufacture of Solar Refrigerator, DIY Solar Refrigerator, marketing, Maintenance and Repair of Solar Refrigerators

  

http://www.eai.in/club/users/harita/blogs/1484

 The blog gives as of now basic insight of a Solar Refrigerator.

 It also provides information on manufacturers in India and abroad.

 There are many villages without electricity and they need refrigeration for the individul households, for preserving the produce of that village. Very soon, we will have information on market potential of solar refrigerators in India's villages, market size of solar refrigerators in other markets. Cost of solar refrigerators and actual cost of refrigeration etc also would be made available soon.

 For now u can visit http://www.eai.in/club/users/harita/blogs/1484  (You can discuss your ideas, doubts, questions, etc in this blog)

 Good opportunity

 To manufacture. 

 To market. 

 To maintain.

 Even solar coolers are a good opportunity.

  ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 * Opportunities in Solar cities:

 There are going to be about 60 solar cities coming up across India.  What business opportunity exists in this solar city concept of MNRE is a question in the young minds of Indians. Will try and answer them in the coming weeks. Stay tuned.

 Besides suggesting business opportunities in solar energy in India for large and medium companies, I thought it will be useful for small and individual players, if I can explain as to how they can get into solar business in India, it will be useful.

 There are bound to be opportunities for individuals, SMEs to take advantage of Solar City concepts. Let them start coming up and we will identify ' solar city' opportunities there.

 This opportunity has not been updated, because, there are no proper guidelines from the respective State Governments. Once the policies come out, opportunities will be identified and posted here.

 ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 *Solar Air Heaters 

 With global warming, there is global cooling also that happens. During winter, the North of India becomes too chill to manage.  Every urban household would do with an Air Heater, a solar air heater. Even the rural households and the households in the unelectrified villages will need an air Heater. The old and the young suffer in cold and air Heater is not a luxury any more.

It is a good opportunity to manufacture AIR Heaters and market in such cold markets. 

 

All discussions, questions pertaining to this opportunity to be restricted to this blog.

Barefoot College, a unique institution in Ajmer, Rajasthan, described as the world’s only college built by and for the poor, is the subject of a new documentary airing on PBS next week.

The Emmy Award-winning Independent Lens series will air “Solar Mamas,” a documentary about the groundbreaking Barefoot College, Nov. 5. 

“Solar Mamas” is directed by Mona Eldaief and Jehane Noujaim. The film follows Rafea, a smart, strong-willed 32-year-old Jordanian mother of four who travels outside her village for the first time, children in tow, to attend Barefoot’s solar engineering program. 

Rafea’s fellow students, including women from Guatemala, Kenya, Burkina Faso, and Colombia, come together for a life-changing, six-month job training program designed to transform them into solar engineers. The women then return to their home countries, changed and ready to change their communities for the better.

However, in Rafea’s case, her husband objects to her plans, and threatens to divorce her and take her children back unless she quits the project.

Barefoot College was founded by Sanjit “Bunker” Roy, a Doon School and St. Stephen’s School graduate and national squash champion who gave up a career in athletics to devote his life to activism. Inspired by the work of Mahatma Gandhi, he founded the school in 1972 to teach rural people sustainable skills. 

More than 3 million people have been trained at the Barefoot School, in subjects such as solar energy, education, water, health care, people’s action, rural handicrafts and wasteland development.

Recognizing Roy’s work, Time magazine named him one of its 2010 “Time 100” most influential people. “Roy has nurtured a grass-roots social entrepreneurship that is redefining the way the world thinks about fighting poverty … Roy combines humanitarianism, entrepreneurship and education to help people steer their own path out of poverty, fostering dignity and self-determination along the way. His simple formula holds a key to what nations and aid organizations might do to build a more just world,” the Time article stated.

  1. 7.        Other Important Decisions:

 

(i)       Non acceptance of proposal for levying fixed charges on the basis of connected load on Domestic and small Non Domestic consumers

 

Discoms had proposed to levy fixed charges with provisions for minimum fixed charges on the basis of connected load on Domestic and small Non Domestic consumers. A number of stakeholders pointed out that this would lead to harassment of the consumers as the verification of actual load at the consumer premises would be necessary and possibility of inaccurate verification cannot be ruled out. The said proposal of the Discoms has not been accepted by the Commission.

 

(ii)       Abolition of high Voltage rebate

 

Commission has not accepted the Discoms proposal of not allowing the voltage rebate to the consumers who opt for supply at lower voltages than prescribed in the character of service.

 

(iii)     Introduction of Demand Based Tariff for LT Medium Industrial consumers

 

At present only HT consumers are allowed to opt for demand based billing whereas LT consumers are billed on the basis of sanctioned connected load. Now a MIP consumer may also opt for billing on the basis of demand and in that case fixed charges as applicable for MIP-HT category shall apply and other provisions relating to billing demand and excess demand surcharge as applicable for HT-MIP consumers shall also apply.

 

The Commission also wishes to extend this facility in phased manner based on examination of metering status and feasibility in respect of other consumer categories.

 

8.      Impact of tariff revision

 

The tariff revision allowed by the Commission will result in generation of additional revenue of Rs. 1095 Crores, Rs. 794 Crores and Rs. 932 Crore for JVVNL, AVVNL & JdVVNL respectively in a twelve month period. However, in the current year additional revenue will be available for lesser period and will be Rs. 705 Crores, Rs. 511 Crores and Rs 600 Crore for JVVNL, AVVNL & JdVVNL respectively.

 

9.      Procedure followed by the Commission

 

The Commission had published salient features of the tariff proposals of the Discoms in newspapers and had made wide publicity for the general public to provide them opportunity to give their comments and objections on the tariff proposals. In all 40 comments/objections were received on JVVNL’s petition, 24 objections on AVVNL’s petition and 22 objections on JdVVNL’s petition from various stakeholders. Comments of the Discoms were obtained on the objections and the Discoms also conveyed their comments directly to the objectors.

 

4

 

All those persons who requested for personal hearing were given an opportunity to personally present their points of view in the public hearing held at Jaipur on 02.05.12 and 03.05.2012. The Chairman of the Discoms also presented the briefs of the proposals for tariff revision and responded to the queries raised by the objectors.

 

10.    Order of the Commission

 

The Commission has made its detailed order after considering objections and comments of the stakeholders/objectors and the arguments of the Discoms.

 

All existing provisions which are not modified by this order shall continue to be in force. Discoms are required to publish salient features of tariff within one week in two daily newspapers in Hindi and one in English, having wide circulation in their respective areas of supply. The tariff shall come into force only after such publication.

 

Tariff order is also being placed on website of Commission for reference.

    A low cost solar energy solution for Indian industries 


    Solar energy for paper making, food processing and  petroleum processing
    A business opportunity in India !
    It is one thing to make electricity from the sun. Which is what most of us are trying. All the solar power companies are upto the same.Heres a new startup call Thermatta.IT is funded by Bill Gross' Idealab.
    Thermatta build solar powered boilers.  The boilers produce steam for industrial activities viz paper making, food processing and petroleum processing. It can obviously be extended to other industrial activities similar to these.
    Many of these industries currently use standard boilers, normally powered by natural gas or coal.

    Brad Hines the CEO of Thermatta expects that the market for industrial heat in boilers is estimated to be 26 billion dollars per annum.
    The idea of Brad Hines is pretty simple. It is setting up heliostats ie big mirrors atop the factory. These heliostats concentrate sunlight onto a receiver on top of an adjacent tower. The heat generated in the tower powers the boiler to produce steam.

    I guess they will soon go for the Beam Down model for better efficiency.
    Solar steam produced the Thermatta way, costs $ 4.60 per MBTU compared to average cost of natural gas powered steam of about $ 6 to $ 10 per MBTU .
    Indian entrepreneurs, should take up such projects, that cut down co2 emission and is less expensive. 
    CO2 emission free and a reduction in the cost  by as much as 50 %.
    What is amazing is that Hines says that the pay back period is just two years.
    Indian entrepreneurs cant ask for more. They shoud start doing research right away. Or they should tie up with the companies in usa which are into this.

    So far Thermata has a partnership with boiler and receiver maker Aalborg CSP, and has the benefit of the experience developed in the solar thermal incubation lab of Idealab. 
    Hines was the founding CEO of concentrating solar photovoltaic startup Soliant Energy, and was VP of engineering for Idealabs CPV startup Energy Innovations. Before that, he worked in NASAs Jet Propulsion Lab for 14 years.
    Hines said that the company has been backed by $500,000 in funds from Idealab and is looking for another $600,000 from investors to build its first pilot system by 2012. 
    Competitors include Sopogy, Chromasun, Heliodynamics and Cogenra.
    The cost of doing such research doesnt seem too steep for indian entrepreneurs. Indian entrepreneurs can do their own research. Join with the above companies and participate in their equity. Or they can become the distributors of such companies which have started commercialising the technology.

    "The policy has been prepared in order to promote solar powe production and bring in maximum investments into the state. The government aims to develop Rajasthan as a hub of solar energy. Under the Jawaharlal Nehru National Solar Mission, Indiaplans to produce 1,000 MW of solar energy, of which 50% has to be done in this desert state,'' Gehlot told the media after the cabinet meeting. He added the first solar plant would soon come up in Nagaur with a capacity of 2.5 MW while the second will be at Bikaner

    The Rajasthan state is expected to generate up to 1,500 MW from solar energy by 2013-14 and expecting an investment of Rs 15,000 crore in the private sector. The production would be increased to 3,000 MW by 2017-18 with an additional investment of Rs 20,000 crore. 

     "Apart from large investments coming to state, employment opportunities will also be created. The policy has a provision of allotting land for solar energy plants at 10% of the DLC rates in the area,'' said Gehlot.  Like

    Sanjit Bunker Roy, an Indian educator, has, since 2005, succeeded in bringing 140 such women to the Barefoot College, a school he founded in 1972 in Tilonia, a village in Rajasthan State, about 95 kilometers, or 60 miles, from the state capital, Jaipur.           The women are taught to install integrated circuit boards for solar home lights and off-grid solar units generating up to 500 kilowatts per day

    Then they return home to electrify their villages.

    According to Barefoot College, in the five years since Mr. Roy extended his program to Africa, the 140 women have provided solar power to 9,118 remote homes in 21 African countries.

    Apart from being one of the finest birding areas, the Keoladeo bird sanctuary in Bharatpur, Rajasthan would soon go solar. It will be one of its only kind of park to be completely free from conventional energy sources. All sources using conventional energy would be replaced with those dependent on solar energy.

    Rajasthan Renewable Energy Corporation Limited has floated tenders for 10 solar power plants of 200 wattage power at all the chowkis in the park, a 8-KW grid-solar hybrid power plant at the Dr Salim Ali Convention Centre and another such 2-KW plant near the entrance gate. Solar lanterns and solar searchlights will also be procured as will be three six-seater battery-operated cars to take tourists on safaris.

    Solar Lighting allows rural families to extend their working day in the evening. Many villages where solar lights are installed see an increase in their levels of economic activity. Installation of solar lamps in villages allows businesses to operate during the evening. Sun King Solar Lantern improves literacy, because people can read more easily at night than they could by candlelight or lamplight.

    Allows you to reduce local air pollution by the use of solar lanterns supplied by illusions4real. Using solar electric systems decreases the amount of local air pollution. With a reduce in the amount of kerosene used for lighting, there is a equivalent  reduction in the amount of local pollution produced. The solar electrification in rural areas also reduces the amount of electricity needed from small diesel generators size.

    Reduces kerosene -
    Kerosene lamps are a serious fire hazard in the developing world, killing and injuring tens of thousands of people every year. Kerosene, diesel fuel and gasoline stored for lamps and small producers are also a threat to safety, while the solar electric light is entirely safe. Fumes from kerosene lamps in poorly ventilated houses are a serious health problem in much of the world where electric light is not available.

    Rajasthan: Abundant DNI and land 

    Rajasthan, which boasts the highest DNI ratings in India, separately announced on April 14 a new state solar policy to develop 50 MW of solar PV, and 50 MW of solar thermal power, via competitive bidding. The desert state is committed to becoming a hub for solar power generation, not only to supply its own energy needs, but also to meet those of other Indian states, by creating 10,000-12,000 MW in solar capacity over the next 10-12 years.  

    Rajasthan will encourage power projects to supply electricity directly to state distribution companies in two phases, starting with 200 MW by 2013, and adding an additional 400 MW capacity between 2013 and 2017. Rajasthan has also called for further development of solar power plants connected to 33 kV and above, under the JNNSM.

    Under the new policy developers would be allowed to bundle solar power with the equivalent amount of power from non-renewable sources, generated anywhere in India.

    The state intends to achieve grid parity in the next five years, through a transparent competitive bidding process, for economy of scale development, and this will put particular pressure on high-cost CSP developers, says Gopal Lal Somani, president, ERA Energy Ltd.   CSP developers currently cannot match the cost of production of PV projects, and states may lack patience to allow them to catch up.

    Ball in developers court

    CSP developers face strongest competitive pressures from PV producers. Somani predicts the next phase of reverse bidding in JNNSM phase 2, coupled with competitive bids under Rajasthans solar policy, will achieve solar energy at INR 7 per Kwh (PV) in India.

    PPAs with FIT support facilitated by a strong policy in recent time across the globe resulted in bankable propositions for developers to make investment decisions. High Spanish FITs paved the way for large scale solar energy projects, but suppliers of the solar technology and equipment adjusted the capital cost to absorb benefits, he says.

    The challenge for Indian developers is to discover and offer real technology cost breakthroughs, concentrate on development of local resources, R&D, and technical skill.  In addition, they must optimise efficiency through innovative measures on thermal storage, he notes.

    According to A C Chaubey, addl principal chief conservator of forests, "The Japanese agency for implementing development assistance, on a trip through Rajasthan was at ease with the actual site inspection of work executed. The second phase of the project will be implemented in 13 districts and fringe areas of 11 protected areas. The project funding for the phase II would be Rs 1,200 to Rs 1,300 crore which would include the state participation." The focus of the project would be poverty alleviation, tribal uplift for which the project will undertake work on private lands. This is aimed at garnering people's participation to improve their livelihood and also reduce man-animal conflict in the fringe areas of the wildlife parks.
    "The site inspection by the Japanese team revealed some positive impact of the first phase, implemented from 2004 to 2010. The number of BPL families has reduced significantly and survey of 24 villages and six districts reveal that water table has gone up significantly by five to eight metres," said Chaubey. This would be the fifth project funded by the Japanese in Rajasthan, he added. The project completion would also see large animals from the zoo move into their natural habitat at the Nahargarh Biological Park. "This would be a five-year project. In the first phase we plan to complete enclosures for the tiger, lion and the leopard and shift these animals to a near natural environ," said Y K Sahu, deputy chief wildlife warden. The requirement for the two biological parks was Rs 16 crore out of which Rs 2 crores each have already been spent, said Sahu. Phase I, with an expenditure of Rs 442.14 cr, was spread over 18 districts, of which 16 fell in the Aravalli Hills area ---- Ajmer, Alwar Banswara, Bhilwara, Chittorgarh, Dungarpur, Dausa, Jaipur, Bundi, S.Madhopur, Pali, Sikar, Sirohi, Tonk, Rajsamand and Udaipur. Besides, there were two districts Bikaner and Jaisalmer in the IGNP areas.

    Gantiyali and Girduwara, two small villages in the desert of Jaisalmer in Rajasthan, had remained without  electricity more than six decades after Independence. Now, thanks to Anand's Sardar Patel University, the villages are lit through light emitting diodes (LED) powered by a wind-solar hybrid battery. The brain behind designing and executing this technology which powers LED home lights and LED streetlights is S N Jha of Sardar Patel University's Department of Physics.

    "The two villages are the first to have LED lighting through wind and solar energy," said Jha, director, technical, of the Self-Financed Research & Development and Consultancy Centre for Impaired ( SFRCI) at SPU's physics department. Buoyed by the success at these two border villages, the Rajasthan government has decided to use this technology to electrify four other border villages: Langtala, Kuriyabori, Murar and Shagadh.

    The ministry of new & renewable energy has said half of the 37 firms awarded solar power projects are yet to achieve financial closure and their contracts will be terminated if they miss the July 9 deadline. "Any failure in meeting the deadline would result in forfeiture of bank guarantees," a senior official in ministry of new & renewable energy said. He said, the ministry has received financial closure details of 17 photovoltaic (PV) and two concentrated solar power (CSP) projects. He declined to name individual developers.

    The ministry had invited international competitive bidding in December last year to award seven CSP projects with 470 MW capacity and 30 PV projects with combined capacity of 150 MW under the national solar mission that provides subsidies to developers.

    Developers said that they were facing problems in getting finance for their projects. "The sector is new and banks are apprehensive in funding solar projects. They demand huge collateral which every developer can't afford," one of them said requesting anonymity.

      Recently attended 4th annual conference of solar power organised by Renewable watch magazine. It by many developers , EPC and gov. officials. The Rajasthan gov. representative from RREC told about hte coming up of solar policy and bidding process. The bidding will be competitive like JNNSM and there are many categories ranging from 1MW to 50 MW with various options like bundling and options for manufactures in state. But will the project are financially viable with no actual DNI data, conservative banks with high cost of raising debt and many un-experienced players. The bidding is likely to co-incide with JNNSM second bidding of 300MW projects which will definitely affect the developer participation and concerns of raising loan from the bank. One on the key speaker at the conference said that developers should plan their debt raising which can be a combination of Indian debt and international debt, but before going for international law one should understand the law of land.

    The Rajasthan solar policy through its Renewable Energy arm RRECL was released in May 2011 and an enforcement date of 19 April 2011, with the aim of pushing Rajasthan to the forefront of the Solar Movement in India. 

    The state government has leased out a large amount of land for a pittance for solar farms, and the JNNSM policy was announced which put the brakes on the state. The projects with the land allocated and permissions in place were moved to JNNSM under the migration and small solar scheme, with the vast majority of all solar allocations being given to the state.

    There have been almost 1.5 GW of applications to the RRECL and the stated target by the year 2012-14 for Rajasthan is 10 GW with a JNNSM similar coal bundling policy to subsidize tariffs. The first phase of allocations for 100 MW with CSP and PV given equal weightage is believed to begin shortly.

    The key goals of the policy were to ensure use of arid land, generate employment, create an industry as well as an R&D hub, and promote the state as a solar hub. However given the poor financial state of the state distribution authorities, whether solar subsidies will be possible for such a large amount is questionable.
