*52L ELECTRICITY BILL INSTEAD OF 6000 SENT TO A COMMON MAN IN FARIDABAD, HARYANA

A simple middle-class man has to bear the brunt of high mercury when discom Dakshin Haryana Bijli Vitran Nigam (DHBVN) sent a sky-high bill. The person in hassle here is, Pramod Mathur from Charmwood village in Surajkund area of Faridabad. The bill sent to him was a whopping Rs. 52,14,728!.When he complained to the discom officials no response was given, and what is worse is his power connection was cut without any prior intimation! Despite that Mr.Mathur ran from pillar to post to get the issue sorted out. Indeed when this was solved, it was found out there was no typo or mething like that. Infact, it was the result of a malfunction in the software used to generate these power bills.However, one question still remains unanswered: when such problems arise, the discoms are swift enough in their action of cutting the power connection. But they take immense time to restore such connections and take corrective action. And the common man is the one who suffers the most without having done any mistake on his part. This is not an isolated case of electricity bill goof up. In February 2011, an 85-year-old woman,Taramati Gosalia got Rs21L power bill, and Rs1.86L is debited from the bank account as interest on non-payment of the aforementioned amount. Then when the issue is finally brought to the notice of BEST officials, to her utter dismay she gets a credit of 43L units. Eventually, she neither got her money back which was debited nor crediting 43L units for an average residential consumer is any solution to the problem! 

The agony of the electricity consumers continues…

*SOLAR INVERTER POWERED AC'S 

The scorching heat these days is making day to day life tougher. It becomes unbearable when there are power outages for long hours. Inverters are the devices which convert DC power input to AC are of pretty much use. The DC power stored in batteries is converted to AC power of required voltage and frequency (50 Hz for India).

Usually inverters can’t take very high loads, they can power lights, fans, bulbs and other light appliances. But these days around with the advent of new technologies the inverters can take the load of whole house, be it a 2-storeyed building or a 3-storeyed building. And, even AC’s can be run on inverters. 

In a report, Frost & Sullivan found out, due to increasing disposable incomes and unreliable power supply, the demand for inverters is going to rise phenomenally. Depending upon the wattage the price of an inverter varies from INR 6000 to INR 2 lakh. The solar powered inverters are a tad expensive with the price tag of INR 75,000 for a 500W inverter and as the wattage increases the prices go up till INR 14 lakh.

 A 1100W solar inverter would cost INR 15,000 without the panel and battery and would light up 4 lights, 2 fans and few small appliances. However, 1100W solar inverter along with 100W solar panels and battery will cost INR 40,000 whereby solar power could be stored and used anytime! 

There are two different types of power inverters: modified sine wave and pure sine wave inverters. A pure sine wave inverter is far more complex, and so, more expensive. But they are reserved for use on medical equipment and other sensitive electrical applications, such as sound/audio equipment. Household generators are now growing popular, because they can support the use of small and large appliances at the same time. 

Gupta says: "The lowest inverter of 300 watts costs around Rs 1,800 and supports three CFL lights and one fan, whereas inverters of 4kw that cost Rs 18,000-Rs 20,000 support the use of more fans, lights and ACs. Heavy duty inverters over 5kw cost Rs 25,000-Rs 1 lakh."

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.

(23.04.2013)

 

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 haryana.The current third party PPA for solar power doing the rounds in haryana is Rs 4.50 - 5 per unit with 5%  escalation once or twice a year. This  third party PPA is available for 5 and 10 years tenure. Companies that avail 3rd Party PPA  for thier solar project in Harayana can also avail REC benefits.

 

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 harayana 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:

4.IDEAL LAND FOR SOLAR POWER GENERATION IN HARAYANA

TOTAL LAND AVAILABLE IN HARAYANA AND ITS GENERATION POTENTIAL

otential!. Intrested! Companies intrested in setting up a solar power plant email mano@eai.in call 91 9043539679 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

 Got Land for Solar power generation !!

Those of you who have large acres of non cultivable lands in HARAYANA near substations and do not have the resources to develop a solar power plant, can register their lands here for 

a. out right sale, b. lease for 26 years c. partnership with the power plant and d. any other suggestion from the land owner

We need the following information. Wherever u dont know the information, pl write 
'I dont know'

Exact location of the land: Address of land including district and taluk, 

Total area in acres

Boundaries marked in google map or in google earth: Mark your land in 
google map/ google earth and email along with this form.

Right of way. ( ROW)*

Proof  of its ownership. 

Name, address including district and taluk,  mobile no

DNI of the location: If you dont know, send us the longitude and latitude of the lands
( If you dont know, how to get this, say : I dont know)

Type of the land in gov records. 

  • **Agricultural/ non agricultural/ barren/ rocky/industrial/ waste/ dry/ anyother specify
  • KVA rating of substation nearby and distance.
  • Capacity available in the substation
  • List of solar projects in the neighbourhood, if you know.
  • Rate  per acre. ie current market price of land available nearby, adjoining your land
  • Expected sale  price : minimum price expected per acre.
  • Open for partnership:Open for leasing for 26 years ? Yes / No
  • Are there lands available nearby : how many acres: how much do these lands cost

    * ROW - if you have direct access to the substation, it is fine. But if electricity produced has to go thru the neighbouring lands, that means 
    you have a ROW issue.

    ** 
    Agricultural lands are not permitted to set up a solar plant, even if there is  no water and no agriculture has been done for years.

If you are going to convert, your land from agricultural land to any other, say so.

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 HARAYANA.

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 HARAYANA.

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.

*What is the space / area / land required for the plant?

 

 Generally, it is assumed at 3.5 to 4acres for crystalline silicon (c-Si) technology and 6 to 7 acres per MW for thin film solar (a-Si or CdTe) technology. In reality, it depends on other parameters like cost of land, Ground Coverage
Ratio (GCR)(to avoid inter array shading, GCR can be 0.45 to 0.65 and 
generation will vary based on GCR) and choice of sun tracking 
systems (with sun trackers the land required will be about 6acres
per MW for crystalline solar modules).

 Which are the ideal states for setting up of solar power projects?

 Hot destinations are Rajasthan, Gujarat and MH, MP, Andhra, Karnataka,
Tamil Nadu as far as solar radiation is concerned. Presently, only 
Andhra, Rajasthan and Gujarat have a clear policy and guidelines on the procedures for 
setting up solar power projects. Other states may also initiate the policy 
and procedures soon now that Jawaharlal Nehru National Solar Mission has been 
launched by Government of India.

 Are Banks interested in financing solar power projects?

 The Debt Service Coverage Ratio (DSCR) works out to an average of 1.49
which is considered quite acceptable to commercial banks for sanction of loan. 
The maximum debt that is permitted as per CERC norms is 70% and most 
banks should be find this acceptable based on the financial strength and 
net worth of the company / promoters. The present policy driven by the
National Solar Mission and PPA for 25 years with a central PSU like NTPC's 
subsidiary should provide adequate confidence to Banker to finance solar
power projects.

Steps involved

1) Register a company (Proprietorship or Partnership or Pvt Ltd or Public Limited) for setting up Solar power Project. Get accredition. Get registered with mnre. Preferred for REC projects.

2) Open a bank account in the new company name if you are an individual . Old name will do if you intend running the solar power generation in the old company’s name.

3) Acquire adequate  land on your company name for setting up Solar Power Project. Create provision for evacuation or atleast get flow study done.

3) Deposit 10% of the project cost in the bank account on company name and take proof of funds from the bank.

4) GET Accredition from local NLDC. GET “ flow study “ approval from Transco. Prepare DPR

5) PPA copy to be there in the DPR or bank loan application.  Get permission to feed power to the T&D network

Bank loan application to have 

1) Proof of Land Ownership , patta, unencumberance certificate
2) DPR,
3) PPA / 
4) Company incorporation certificate by an auditor
5)  Bank Balance in the new bank account.

 

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.

 19.Can I get more detailed information about availing loan from U.S. Ex-Im bank?

 

ü  Detailed information about various types of loans and related products on offer by U.S. Ex-Im bank for renewable energy (solar) project developers 

 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.

 

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    

        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 received 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.

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.

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)

Some quotes


Installer 1

1KW system for Rs.2,10,000 (two lakh ten thousand only).

 


In this Govt. is offering Rs.70,000 as subsidy for 1KW system.

So, the customer has to pay only Rs.1,40,000 to us, we will get the subsidy directly from government.

2KW system will be Rs.2,70,000.


The break up is as follows:


Solar panels- Rs.60,000 (1000W)

Battery Rs.50,000 (400AH Solar Battery)

Inverter Rs. 30,000 (1KVA)

Mounting structures Rs.25,000

Cable and others Rs.20,000

VAT Rs.12,000


For 2KW system just double.

Demographics:

 

Haryana located in northern part of India has the area of l44,212 km2 17,070.3 sq mi) and population of 25,353,081 with the density of 573.4/km2 (1,485.2/sq mi)

 

The climate of Haryana is similar to other states of India lying in the northern plains. It is very hot in summer (up to a high of 50 deg Celsius) and cold in winters (down to a low of 1 deg Celsius). The hottest months are May and June and the coldest being December and January.

 

Haryana is a landlocked state in northern India. It is located between 27°37' to 30°35' N latitude and between 74°28' and 77°36' E longitude. The altitude of Haryana varies between 700 to 3600 ft (200 metres to 1200 metres) above sea level.

 

Department of Renewable energy, Govt. of Haryana:

 

The department of renewable energy is responsible for formulating policies and programmes necessary for popularizing the applications of various non-conventional and renewable energy sources in Haryana. It’s implementing various schemes concerning utilization of solar energy, biogas, micro hydel, biomass energy etc. Department of renewable energy, Haryana has been implementing solar thermal schemes, solar photovoltaic schemes etc.

 

Solar Power Projects in Haryana:

 

The Government of India has approved nine solar power projects of 8.8MW capacity to be set up in Haryana by independent power producers. These projects would get commissioned by September 2011.

 

Haryana Renewable Energy Development Agency (HAREDA) had invited proposals from independent power producers for the installation of solar power generation plants of 100 Kw to 2 Mw capacities in the state under the Jawaharlal Nehru National Solar Mission. After the approval of the state government, HAREDA issued pre-registration certificates to the 22 developers for setting up of solar power projects of 20 Mw capacity, of which nine projects had been approved by the Government of India.

 

Two projects of 100 Kw Rooftop Solar Photovoltaic had been commissioned at M/s Omax Auto Ltd, Manesar and Daruhera units at a cost of Rs 260 lakh each. Ministry of New Renewable Energy has provided a total financial assistance of Rs 1.50 crore for these projects. One such project of 50 Kw had been commissioned at Retreat, Teri, Gawal Pahari and Gurgaon.

 

The first ever 1MW solar plant is launched in Nandha village, Bhiwani district, Haryana in August 2011. This is an initiative by C&S Electric Limited.

 

Abengoa has completed India’s first solar thermal power plant (3MW) in Gwal Pahari in Haryana. The $4 million facility was built for the Indian Institute Technology in Mumbai. This facility can generate enough power for 1,000 homes.

 

 

 

Haryana is promoting the use of solar energy through disseminating solar kits amongst 200 schools and providing solar lighting in around 500 villages. Haryana is investing in installing solar energy in public places like Raj Bhawan and Collectorates of 10 districts. This is being further followed by the Haryana Power Generation Corporation planning to put up solar plants in 3 districts near existing fossil fuel plants. The state already provides a number of subsidies for solar water heating, solar lighting, solar coolers and solar lanterns.

 

The Ministry of New and Renewable Energy is implementing a programme on developing solar cities in the country.

 

Haryana Renewable Energy Development Agency is promoting the solar photovoltaic devices for running tube lights, fans and TV etc.

Solar Business Opportunities in Haryana:



The Solar business opportunities mentioned below are not specific to Haryana. They are industry specific opportunities. 



Polysilicon manufacturing



Polysilicon is used to manufacture crystalline wafers. Around a quarter of the cost of a Crystalline module goes just for polysilicon.



The Ministry is providing soft loan at 5% annual interest rate through IREDA for setting up manufacturing facilities for manufacture of poly silicon material, silicon ingots and wafers, solar cells or integrated solar cell-module plants. No soft loan is available for setting up manufacturing unit for module manufacture or PV system manufacture. The proposals are considered by IREDA as per their lending and project appraisal norms. The details of the scheme are available with IREDA.  http://www.mnre.gov.in/spv-fin.htm



Type of entrepreneurs/ investors who can benefit - Entrepreneurs keen on building up capital intensive manufacturing facilities for an emerging market. The industry is dominated by a few companies that supply around 90% of the total polysilicon market. Some of the prominent companies are Hemlock, OCI, Wacker Chemie Tokuyama, REC (subsidiary SGS and ASiMI), and MEMC.

 

Scale of investment - Typical investments of $500 million - $1 billion for building a polysilicon production plant.



High R&D or commodity manufacturing? - Commodity manufacturing



Bottlenecks/threats - High capital requirements, high energy input requirements and long-term supply contracts could be deterrents to new entrants.

 

Competition - The industry is dominated by a few companies that supply around 90% of the total polysilicon market. Some of the prominent companies are Hemlock, OCI, Wacker Chemie Tokuyama, REC (subsidiary SGS and ASiMI), and MEMC



Market size - The world market of polysilicon has been growing 30-40% annually since 2004, primarily from the growth in solar PV industry. The market size of the solar cell polycrystalline silicon market in 2009 was $5.13 billion.



Supply and demand - Following undersupply since past few years, polysilicon production capacity entered a fast-growth phase in 2009, which resulted in an oversupply situation, in response to increase in production capacity and growth in demand from the end markets. It is forecasted that the demand for polysilicon will continue to increase at more than ten percent for the period 2010 to 2012. Polysilicon oversupply will also trigger a long term decline in its prices, which peaked to the highest levels in 2008 in response to its supply shortage.

 

Indian scenario - Companies such as Lanco, Bhaskar Solar, Tata BP Solar and Acharya are reportedly setting up polysilicon manufacturing plants in India, though these are pretty much early days for polysilicon in India.

 

It is not advisable to enter into this market at present. That is why I have not even updated some of the information given above. Everyone needs to know that Polysilicon manufacture is an opportunity for those in the solar industry.

 

It is meant now, for those who are already in the business.

 

But the older companies will be able to keep their selling, transporting, costs to the least. 

 

The prices are falling, efficiencies are increasing, machineries getting outdated, and thus it is a dynamic industry. 

 

Ingot and wafer manufacturing



The process of melting polysilicon into ingots and subsequently cutting them into wafers is wedged between polysilicon production and cell manufacturing.

 

Yet, it is a distinct process that does not require physical proximity to upstream or downstream processing. Consequently, some companies specialize in just doing that. Typically, ingot and wafer manufacturing are done by the same company.



Type of entrepreneurs /investors who can benefit - Companies that have been operating in metal cutting and finishing, abrasives and related industries could be ideally suited to enter this segment.



This too is avoidable. 

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

Solar Cell Manufacturing:



Cell manufacturing involves creating the all-important pn-junction, coating and layering. It is an important step in the value chain that is responsible for about 15% of a solar PV module cost and it is here where significant technical differentiation is created.

Avoidable 

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

Crystalline Cell Manufacturing:



Type of entrepreneurs / investors who can benefit - Ingot and wafer manufacturers who are keen on forward integration can exploit this opportunity.



Scale of investment - Medium-Large. A rule of thumb guide to the capital investment in building a solar cell plant is US$1-1.25 million/MW for crystalline silicon and US$ 2 million/MW or more for thin films. The minimum economical size for a solar cell factory is about 20 MW.

 

Avoidable

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

Thin-film Solar Cell Manufacturing



Manufacturing thin-film modules comprises depositing photovoltaic material on a substrate, structuring it into cells to form an electric circuit and wire and frame it depending on application. The key suppliers for the thin-film industry are chemical companies that produce high-purity metals such as CdTe, GaAs etc. The supply chain is less constrained than that for polysilicon (used in crystalline solar) and therefore much more reliable. This industry experiences a diverse mix of big-hitters (Sharp), start-up companies and universities. Companies with a long-term vision should start investing in this field.



Type of entrepreneurs / investors who can benefit - Chemical companies that produce high-purity metals such as CdTe, GaAs are in a good position to exploit this opportunity. Glass manufacturers are also in a good position to exploit this opportunity. Equipment firms that have traditionally supplied printing machinery or manufacturing equipment to the semiconductor and display industry see the burgeoning thin film industry as a potentially lucrative market, especially as their hardware can often be easily adapted to manufacture thin film cells and panels. At the same time, these equipment manufacturers are not finding it that easy to enter the TFPV space because module manufacturers are choosing to design and build proprietary equipment rather than buy it in.

 

Scale of investment - This industry experiences a diverse mix of big-hitters (Sharp), start-up companies and universities. A rule of thumb guide to the capital investment in building a solar cell plant is US$1-1.25 million/MW for crystalline silicon and US$ 2 million/MW or more for thin films. The minimum economical size for a solar cell factory is about 20 MW.

 

High R&D or commodity manufacturing? - Opportunities exist for R&D and innovation in this exciting sector. Prominent segments where significant innovation possibilities exist are: efficiency, new thin film materials, design and process.

 

Bottlenecks/threats/barriers - For development and small-scale production, there are few barriers, as companies like Aja International specialize in providing small-scale sputtering equipment. However, when scale becomes important, access to capital might become a barrier.

 

Competition - This is a very dynamic segment with lots of startup companies, some venture-funded. There are also a number of companies that also produce crystalline technologies. Those companies tend to be in the amorphous silicon thin-film segment. The organic photovoltaics segment is mostly covered by research institutes rather than private companies.

 

Market size - The production volume has increased steadily as 165MW in 2007 and 357 MW in 2008. The share of thin films is expected to increase significantly and expected to reach about 25% of total in 2013. (EPIA data).

 

Supply and demand - The thin film solar cell production reached a consolidated figure of 1.68 GW in 2009 out of the total 3.58 GW capacity available, indicating that there is some amount of surplus capacity. However, the demand supply gap could look very different in future with enhanced offtake of thin film world over.

 

Indian scenario - There are only a few Indian companies such as Moser Baer and HHV Solar that make thin film solar cells. A few others such as Kirloskar are also exploring this field.



First solar, Abound solar, GE's Primestar etc will soon find inroads into India.

CIGS, CdTe and amorphous silicon a-si are the three types.

Worthwhile pursuing opportunity



First solar, Abound Solar, Primestar of GE are the companies to associate with.

It is a difficult manufacturing process. 

You may also want to study the below given not yet proven cos.

Miasole, (counselled by Intel)

Heliovolt, 

Nanosolar,

SoloPower

Stion

Solar frontier,

Sulfurcell, 

AQT

Telio,

Global solar

ISET

Odersun,

Wuerth Solar etc 

 

All the above are CIGS manufacturers. Some of them are startups and you need to study their production process and record well.



May make sense to tie up with any one of them, who is doing well, now, than going in of your own manufacturing. 



CdTe thin film companies are CdTe: Abound Solar, Primestar, Solexant, Bloo Solar, Willard and Kelsey, Xunlight26



a-Si - Sharp solar 



Ascent solar tipped to have the highest upside in the stock market is another company to watch out for.

 

As per the JNNSM guidelines, thin film can be imported for its Phase I Batch I and II as there are no manufacturers.

 

Some of the thin films have been found pretty efficient in India. Viz First Solar.



To repeat 

Worthwhile pursuing opportunity.  Required deep pockets. Global play.

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

CSP 



CSP is an umbrella term for CSTP and CPV.

That is the way I am taking it. 

The purists may not agree.

For the purpose of this note, it is fine to define CSP as above.



In concentrating PV (CPV), concentrators use optics to concentrate sunlight onto a small area of solar cells, thus allowing for a decrease in cell size. Because a CPV module needs less cell material than a traditional PV module, it is cost effective to use higher quality cells to increase efficiency. However, the technology makes up a very small portion of the solar industry.

 

CPV system manufacturers assemble the solar cells, concentrator unit and heat sink to form a module. Where applicable, companies will either integrate a tracking device or offer it as a separate product for free-standing module installations.

 

CPV is currently quite R&D driven, with a number of innovations taking place in this area. The types of entrepreneurs who will find this domain suitable are those who have scientific R&D backgrounds and have access to funds for significant R&D investments.



As a rather recent technology (being commercialized), there are new entrants, many of whom are venture funded. Some of the prominent ones are: Amonix (California), SolFocu (California), GreenVolts (San Francisco), Concentrix Solar (Germany) etc.



CSP



Interesting opportunity area for large companies. Very soon India will need utility scale solar energy plants with molten salt so that they can provide electricity 24 hours. As per the Renewables Purchase Obligation, RPO, all utilities are expected to buy 0.25 % every year and that is a considerable amount for each state. 

 

This is the only solar technology that allows for storage naturally. Since the solar radiation is indirectly converted to electricity, there is an opportunity to store the collected heat in molten salts, before converting the heat to electricity.

 

The cost of setting up the molten salt system is exorbitant.



The common understanding is CSP is cheaper than PV due to the use of off-the-shelf, commodity components like mirrors, turbine, etc. It also was known to have higher efficiencies in solar to electricity conversion (~15%).



Due to the global oversupply in PV panels and reduced demand due to the financial crisis, the prices of the panels have drastically reduced. On the efficiency front, the PV at 15-20% efficiency is typical now, further adding the cost parity. The result is that PV is now at parity or close to parity with CSP. One western region utility claimed that they pay 0.16 c/Kwh for CSP and 0.14 c/Kwh for PV. This difference was attributed to the timing of the PPAs; generally the difference is not significant anymore.

 

A CSP project in USA has shifted to PV. Actually it is world's largest project that has shifted from CSP to PV

 

http://www.eai.in/club/users/Nithya/blogs/7417

 

BHEL has tied up with a CSP major. 

 

The ability to provide “firm power” is a clear advantage of CSP at this time. Due to the output being provided by a steam turbine (and not directly from the field) and a ~2 hour built-in buffer in the trough technology, small variations in the in insolation do not affect the turbine output – like a passing cloud.



CSP will also be needed for many townships, industrial estates etc 



Large companies which want to take less risk and are happy with predictable rewards can go for this. 



Here are a list of CSP companies with a note for each of them. You may want to work with one of the best, than go it alone.

But then there is no clear basis for my selection. 



Viability / grid parity is a question as far as CSP is concerned. It will take a little longer than PV.

 

Spain’s track record sends an encouraging message to newer entrants in the CSP market from India to South Africa and beyond. When Spain started building plants in 2007, the first plants such as PS10 and Andasol 1 were highly dependent on imports of foreign supplies, requiring at least 50% of the requisite parts to be sourced from abroad. The plants that went online in 2010 were built with around 80% of components from Spanish companies.

Solar Module Production - Solar PV module manufacturing involves assembling the cells into a module to form an electric circuit. This is the last manufacturing step before it is distributed to wholesalers.



Indian scenario - There are about 35 companies in India that produce crystalline solar modules.



Avoidable. Dont enter now.

The market is crowded. 



China is doing predatory pricing. It will swallow even local manufacturers, if they are not quick.

If you are already a module manufacturer, it makes sense for you to enter power generation. 

 

And to enter Rooftop solar. 

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

Other Opportunities in Solar energy in India and Haryana are



*Ground Zero opportunity 

 

Roof top solar!

 

It is a very good opportunity and there are opportunities for very large companies as well as for medium sized companies and individuals to get into business. 



As an individual you can start a business as an Installer. 



You will have a few well trained / skill trained employees working under you. 



At the small, residential scale, there are practically no barriers to entry.  



There is a wealth of training material available, both in person and online which enables even a one-man contractor to become fit enough to install roof top solar. 

 

At the larger, commercial scale, the main barrier to entry is capital, expertise in management, in sales, etc., 



You will install solar modules in a rooftop as per your Integrator's instructions.



An Installer is someone who is technically minded and can manage a few people or if you can manage many people at a time, then you become an area Installer. 



The installer model is somewhat like a conventional contractor model.  Gross margins are thin, from 15 to 30%. Residential Rooftop systems typically receiving larger margins than commercial. 



Because commercial jobs will be invariably got thru an Integrator or an EPC contractor.



It is an opportunity for domestic module manufacturers to get into.

The opportunity exists for 

Installers

Area Installers

District Installers

Integrators

Area Integrators

District Integrators

Regional companies - covering a few states having similar policies

 

National companies 

 

The Installers can choose to work on their own or under the National companies, Regional companies, District integrators, District Installers, etc., 

 

The market will evolve as fragmented and unstructured to begin with and will get consolidated. 



You can get more information about types of Installers in Rooftop solar business models.

 

An integrator is someone who deals with the customer, Electricity board, etc



Then there will be a company. Either a national company or a regional company which deals with the Gov, electicity board, corporates etc, 

 

You can read all about them in Rooftop solar business models

 

And Rooftop solar technology types http://www.eai.in/club/users/Nitin/blogs/6670



Rooftop solar is a viable alternative and the prices / tariff in each state will soon help bring about grid parity and the sooner you get into it, the sooner you will reap the benefits.



Rooftop solar comes about in many forms. For example a captive power plant may need a rooftop solar solution as a part of it. 



Diesel to Renewables may need rooftop solar solution.

* Business possibilities with MNRE 

 

RESCO, 

System integrator, 

Financial Institution, 

Financial Integrator and 

Program Administrator

Each of the above is an opportunity

 

 

Implementation of off-grid solar PV project under JNNSM

FAQ

 

1. What is the Procedure to register as Channel Partner?

 

There are 5 types of channel partners and they can participate in the programme through the following procedure:

 

A  RESCO is a entity which would install, own & operate RE systems and provide energy services to consumers. These entities may tie up with FIs for accessing the financial support under the scheme. These are in fact the only entities which would approach the MNRE on their own. CRISIL is in the process of putting in place a system of accreditation. From September 2010 these entities could approach either CRISIL, CARE or FITCH to have themselves accredited and if they meet the minimum requirements laid down by MNRE they would be in a position to approach the Project Appraisal Committee (PAC) with their proposal for a in principle approval. 

 

The PAC would then provide the entity “in principle “approval and allow it to move forward with the implementation. The PAC would also specify that on completing the project, 50% of the funds would be made available automatically and the remaining on completing monitoring. 

 

As far as the Financial Institutions as channel partner is concerned, a comprehensive re-finance scheme has already been notified by IREDA.  The SPV Division has also floated an EoI, wherein they have received over 80 applications from entities interested in partnering in the bank led scheme.  

 

The SPV Division would shortlist the manufacturers region-wise or across the country depending on the strength of their existing after-sales network.  The division will also identify various products after verifying how each of the laid down by MNRE, and then along with product is meeting the standards laid  NABARD, design a pre-approved scheme which will allow RRBs to proceed with the lending for the above identified products and empanelled manufacturers.   It is highlighted that the process of empanelling both the manufacturers and products would be an ongoing process in order to make sure that if there are new players who meet the requisite standards can also be appropriately empanelled. This process it is hoped will result in enabling NABARD to announce their pre-approved scheme to all the financial institutions, which have a re-finance agreement with them.  IREDA will, after signing the agreement in Mumbai on 25th August, place token funds with NABARD to initiate the implementation of this scheme.   

 

System integrators can approach the PAC; with their project in the formats finalise to seek an ‘in principle’ approval.  Since these are entities that would first interact with their market and build a project based on the tentative orders that they have been provided by their clients, the PAC would appraise the project on three basic parameters:-

 

(i) The ability of the entity to implement the project in terms of the skill set of their personnel. 

 

(ii) Details of how parameters of quality would be met as per the standards specified by MNRE.

 

(iii) O&M Plan.

 

System integrators would however need to approach bank/banks who would be willing to have a three way tie up with their clients, themselves and the bank.  The bank/banks would also need to have a re-finance agreement in place with IREDA, NHB or NABARD.  Based on the ‘in principle’ approval, the bank would be in a position to provide the lending support to the clients that have been identified by the system integrators.  It is envisaged that both the capital and interest subsidy would flow to the beneficiaries of the scheme only through the banking channel. Requisite arrangements for providing this flow have already been clearly delianated in the re-finance scheme notified by IREDA.

 

Financial integrators are entities who need to enter into a tri-partite agreement before coming to MNRE. This tripartite agreement has to be between the manufacturers/service providers, financial integrators and any other financial institutions, which is willing to support this kind of a business model.  It is envisaged that the financial integrators would approach the PAC with details of their financial model as well as the product or service that they wish to provide through this financial/business model.  

 

The PAC would appraise the project on the following parameters: 



(i) Details of how parameters of quality would be met as per the standards specified by MNRE.

 

(ii) The ability of the entity to implement the project in terms of the skill set of their personnel. 

 

(iii) O&M Plan.

 

(iv) Financial/business models and its viability.



It is expected that the financial integrators would also tie up with a schedule commercial bank in India so that the subsidy both capital and interest can flow through the banking channel and would be covered under the re-finance scheme of IREDA.



In so far as the implementation of the scheme through programme administrators is concerned, there is complete clarity in how to move forward. 



Formats for both SPV and Solar Thermal have also been prepared.



2. How to submit a project proposal?

 

Formats for submission of proposal are given on the Website of the Ministry. 

 

Two sets are required to be submitted to PAC.3. How the project will be approved?

 

Once the proposal of the channel partner is received an in- principle approval from PAC will be given within a maximum of 45 days. In case additional information is required PAC will inform within 30 days. After full information is received proposal will be cleared in two weeks.



4. What is the subsidy disbursal mechanism?



The release of funds for the project shall be back ended as reimbursement on completion and verification thereof. However for progamme administrators, the release of funds could be front ended, with installments of 70% on sanction and 30% on completion. However, this could be extended to other entities on provision of appropriate sureties. In respect of credit linked capital subsidy and interest subsidy the scheme would be implemented through IREDA, which will be  the designated Nodal agency for disbursement of funds.



5. Procedure for accreditation for channel partner/ financial integrator/ systems integrator/RESCO? 

 

As above in (1)



6. Can NGOs directly approach MNRE for implementation of projects?

 

Only the NGOs who have already been working closely with MNRE can access the scheme directly. Otherwise, the NGOs should collaborate with SNAs. 



7. Whether lighting systems to be provided should be certified by SEC or other test centers?

 

Compliance to standards is mandatory. Certificate from test centres will help in this regard and should be provided to ensure complainace.



8. What is the policy on local content of modules, batteries and other balance of systems in off grid programme?

 

The scheme requires the project proponents to strictly adhere to the national/international standards specified by the Ministry from time to time.  The Use of imported complete PV systems is not permitted under the scheme. 

 

However, use of imported components of a complete PV system is permitted, subject to adequate disclosure and compliance to specified quality norms and standards.

 

The minimal technical requirements and Quality Standards in respect of the off-grid SPV power plants/ systems are given in Annexure-3 of the scheme for solar off-grid applications. These will come into effect from 1st September 2010 to allow sufficient time to the SPV industry to gear up for the same.



9. What are financial limits assigned to channel partners?

 

The financial limits will get decided based on the ability of the channel partner to deliver the implementation of the project within a period of 1 year. But the PAC would not accept any proposal of value less than Rs One crore or 30 kWp. Less than this amount would need to be aggregated at State level.



10. Whether commercial entities can avail accelerated depreciation?

 

The commercial entities can claim all the benefits, which are presently available for renewable energy applications, including solar, under the Income tax act and other notifications, subject to fulfillment of the conditions.



11. Whether any channel partner interested only in capital subsidy whom should he approach?

 

Only accredited channel partner and Programme administrators can access ‘only capital ‘subsidy. The commercial entities can access either capital subsidy or interest subsidy. They should approach a channel partner to avail subsidy.



12. Whether RESCOs require any permission from Electricity boards to produce power?

 

Guidelines under the Electricity Act,2003 and the extant regulations of that particular State will need to be read in conjunction to determine the process for captive power generation.



13. Whether any new technologies invented any where can be introduced in the programme?

 

The Ministry could provide up to 100% CFA for undertaking pilot and demonstration projects through manufacturers and other organizations for demonstrating new and innovative applications of solar systems. The maximum CFA that would be permissible under this provision would be up to Rs 1 crore. The PAC would evaluate the proposal based on parameters like – new applications for solar (not merely using solar as a power source), possibility of reduction of cost of BoS or system design improvement, or a new concept etc.

* Floating solar plants.



There are three companies namely Sunengy in New southwhales, Australia, Solarsis Synergy in France/ ciel-et-terre.net/ and SGPsolar in California, USA.



They have different methods of achieving solar power from floating solar panels, solar plants, etc.



They all use captured water bodies.



India has 30000 sq km of captured water bodies.



If even 1 % of that area is utlised - it will equal 1500 large coal plants.



Tata's have tied up with Sunengy, which has a patented technology called LSA.



With the other two companies, entrepreneurs/ companies from India can seek to have a tie up.



There is a solar business opportunity in terms of research for the research minded.



All about this opportunity http://www.eai.in/club/users/aathmika/blogs/1170



Tatas have already started building a floating solar plant with Sunengy, somewhere near Pune.

 

There is another company in Punjab doing this.

 

There is a clear opportunity for big companies to tie up with Solaris Synergy and or SGP solar in California USA.

 

http://ciel-et-terre.net/floating-photovoltaic/



This is the French company.

 

I have been recommending these companies for a long time. 

 

 

NOW, SGP solar has been ranked as one of  the fastest growing private company in usa. 

 

Or you can fund research in this area.

* 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 professionals.



Can 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.

Coming soon.

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

*. 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.

    The government of Haryana has put nine solar power projects in Haryana on fast track.


    The objective is to  meet the mid-September deadline. The projects of 8.8 mw to be set up under Jawaharlal Nehru National Solar Mission (JNNSM) were reviewed recently by the ministry of new and renewable energy and the state nodal agency—Haryana Renewable Energy Development Agency (Hareda)—submitted the progress report.

    The problem that these project developers are facing is getting the statutory approvals on time. Hareda has  written to all the concerned departments to take up their cases on priority and give approvals as soon as possible. Land is already in possession for all projects and the financial closure is under process for the projects with one developer already having achieved the same.

    Power from renewable energy sources a distant dream in Haryana


    The renewable energy policy of Haryana was envisaged in 2006. Since then, it has been amended twice. Haryana Renewable Energy Development Agency (Hareda) is the nodal agency for developing non-conventional sources of energy in the state.

    As per the policy, a target of power generation of 500 MW from renewable energy sources including surplus agricultural biomass, hydro, wind and solar energy has been fixed. The prospects for renewable energy in the state are not much promising. Despite being one of the most industrialized and fastest growing states in the country, Haryana is deficient in renewable energy.

    The solar insulation level in the state is in the range of 5.5 KWH to 6.5 KWH per sq metre of area. Haryana is richly endowed with solar energy resources with 320 sunny days. However, the state has negligible wind energy as only Aravali and Morini hills are expected to provide wind energy.

    POWER-HARYANA-SOLAR TWO LAST BHIWANI

    Mr Hooda said that out of these four plants those at Khedar andYamuna Nagar have already started generation and by this year end the Indira Gandhi Super Thermal Power Plant at Jharli would also commence generation.

    As a result of commissioning of all these plants, the availability of power would increase considerably.

    http://www.electroiq.com/photovoltaics/2011/08/1487806733/power-haryana-solar-two-last-bhiwani.html

    The Chief Minister said the slab system of power tariff would soon be implemented in a better way. He said that the delayed disbursement of Old Age Samman Bhatta would be made with interest by September 15 as instructions in this regard have been issued to the officers concerned.
