The US offered priority access to its shale gas output as long as India agreed to cut oil imports from Iran, a country that the US is trying to isolate.Exhibit 2: A recent Bloomberg report highlighted how India’s coal-fired power plants burnt up the scarce resource at their fastest pace in 31 years.  Exhibit 3, mis-pricing of energy resources at both production and consumption ends. A good example of this is how the government has dealt with the pricing of natural gas.MORE..

 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 thier 3rd party PPA for their solar project in chhattisgarh.

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 CHATTISGARH 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.

IDEAL LAND

Lands for solar power generation projects in Chattisgarh - 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

 Got Land for Solar power generation !!

Those of you who have large acres of non cultivable lands in Chhattisgarh State 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.

 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 based on valuation of the assets that 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%.

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 some banks are accepting less than 100 % 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 rapp

ort based on good performance in the past can bring the interest percentage down.

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 CHHATTISGARH.

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.

 

 

 

 CHECK LIST FOR COMPANIES AND INDIVITUALS FOR GETTING BANK LOAN TO SET UP A SOLAR POWER PLANT IN CHHATTISGARH

Solar power plant projects for loan proposal are new to CHHATTISGARH and particulary to the  bankers.It is difficult for them  to comprehend a business proposition with no raw material and little capital like a solar power generation project.After a few years, once several loan sanctions happen for solar power projects. The process will become mores simple as the bankers will have a better idea.

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

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.

  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. TUS EXIM bank can take between six to nine months to process loan requests. Developers aiming for a US EXIM loan usually have to arrange for alternative bridge financing  The long processing time is attributed mostly to the lengthy legal, technical and financial due diligence undertaken by the bank. The due diligence  increases 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.

There are 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  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),

 Power Finance Corporation (PFC), 

 Mahindra Finance, 

IDFC, 

 IL&FS, 

SBI Capital Markets and 

 Indian Renewable Energy Development Agency (IREDA).

The RECs must be sold within one year from the date of issuance, failing which
the RECs will lapse.

 

 

 

*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, Tamilnadu 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.

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

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.

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.

Why Andhra companies are setting up a solar plant in Chhattisgarh? Chhattisgarh is a big RPO market, lots of steel power plants and other obligated entites that can be the reason.

Why is a company from AP .....
chattisgarh is a captive power generation market. captive power generated by all the steel rerolling ... businesses. 
They all have RPOs.

Is this why Lanco is setting up its Solar panel prodution there ?

 President Pranab Mukherjee all praise for Chhattisgarh

 

In his maiden visit to Naxal-hit Chhattisgarh, President Pranab Mukherjee today praised the "young state" for its all-round development.

Asserting that Chhattisgarh has a rich legacy of one of the oldest panchayati raj systems, he said it has emerged as one of the fastest developing states in the country.

"This young state has registered all round development on many fronts and made its presence felt at the national level," he said in his address on the conclusion of 12th Rajyotsava (statehood) celebrations here.

Chhattisgarh was formed on November 1, 2000. It was earlier a part of Madhya Pradesh.

Mukherjee praised Chhattisgarh's new administrative capital Naya Raipur and complimented the state leadership for its vision and commitment to sustainable development.

"I am delighted to know that Naya Raipur is the first planned capital city of 21st century in India and is being developed as a modern and green city.

"Special features such as rain water harvesting and harvesting of solar energy have been included to make it eco-friendly. Comfort and security to the citizens are being ensured through dedicated bus lanes, cycle tracks, pedestrian pathways and barrier free movement," he said highlighting some of the features of the new city developed in 8,000 hectare area and about 20 km from capital Raipur.

Mukherjee, who is on a two-day visit to the state, also inaugurated a state-of-the-art new secretariat building here.

He expressed happiness over his first visit to the state saying it gave him "an opportunity to meet a cross section of the vibrant literary and academic communities of this new and fast growing state".

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 Chattisgarh 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 be commenced 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 tonne. The project will de-carbonise 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.

"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 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 1GW of wind power plants across India, amongst the largest capacities for power generation in the country.

Provided also that the obligated entity shall be in breach of its RPO Obligation, if it fails to deposit the amount directed by the Commission within specified time from the communication of the direction.

 

Provided that in case of any genuine difficulty in complying with the renewable purchase obligation because of non-availability of power from renewable energy sources or the RECs, the obligated entity can approach the Commission to carry forward the compliance requirement to the next year only.

 

 

Provided further that where the Commission has consented to carry forward of compliance requirement, the provision regarding creation of such fund as specified above shall not be applicable.

 10.      Non Availability of Renewable Energy Certificate

 

10.1   In the event of non compliance of the RPO by distribution licensees by any of the modalities as specified above as per the orders of the Commission, from non-solar renewable energy plants or solar power plants in the State, the distribution licensee whose purchase of renewable energy is maximum during the year shall be compensated by other distribution licensees so that percentage of renewable energy consumption by all the distribution licensees functioning in the State become equal.

 

 

Explanation – for the purpose of this Regulation, the compensation shall mean the sharing of differential of average cost of RE power purchase and average cost of Non RE power purchase of distribution licensee, which is to be compensated for the year under consideration calculated as per following example. For the example the year under consideration for RPO has been taken as year 2010-11;

 Annual energy consumption by three licensees for the year 2010-11 is 15910 MUs (total of three licensees A, B & C) and total actual RE purchased by all the licensees for the year 2010-11 is 621 MUs i.e. together all the licensees have met 3.9% RPO in the State, where as RPO percentage target for the Year 2010-11 is 5%. Individually licensee-A, B & C could finally make RPO as 4%, 1.6% & 2.4% respectively for the year 2010-11 by all the modes of RE purchase as specified above, which is well below the RPO target.

Though none of licensee could meet the RPO for the year 2010-11, it will be proper that licensee-A, which has procured more than average RPO purchased during the year, should be paid differential cost by other licensee(s) who met RPO lesser than average during the year (3.9%). The sharing obligation will be (-)19.5 MUs for licensee-A, 16.3 MUs for licensee-B and 3.2 MUs for licensee-C. Licensee-B will pay to licensee –A equivalent to 16.3 MUs at the rate of differential of average cost of RE power purchase and average cost of Non RE power purchase by licensee – A for year under consideration i.e. 2010-11. Similarly licensee-C will pay for 3.2 MUs to licensee-A at the rate of differential of average cost of RE power purchase and average cost of Non RE power purchase by licensee – A for year under consideration i.e. 2010-11.

 

Further if average cost of RE purchase for the year 2010-11 in respect of distribution licensee- A is Rs. 5.40 per unit and average cost of non RE purchase by distribution licensee- A is Rs. 3.90 per unit than differential cost will be Rs. 1.50 per unit (5.40-3.90). Licensee- B will pay to licensee –A Rs. 244.83 Lakh (16.3 MU X 1.5 Rs./kWh). Similarly licensee –C will pay to licensee –A Rs. 47.95 Lakh (3.2 MU X 1.5 Rs./kWh).In case the average cost of RE purchase in respect to licensee-A is lesser than the average cost of non-RE purchase, then no compensation will be payable to licensee-A by licensee-B and licensee-C. The above payments will be made as per the directions of the Commission and will be considered in Annual Revenue Requirement of concerned licensee.

  11.      Priority for Grid Connectivity

 11.1   Any person generating electricity from renewable energy sources, irrespective of installed capacity, shall have priority for open access, connectivity with distribution system or grid as the case may be. On an application from such person, the transmission licensee or distribution licensee shall provide appropriate interconnection facilities, as far as feasible, before commissioning of the renewable energy project. Such interconnection shall follow the grid connectivity standards as specified in the Indian Standard Grid Code, State Grid Code and/or the manner prescribed by the Central Electricity Authority.

  12.      Renewable Energy Pricing

 12.1   All the new renewable energy projects commissioned during the Control Period as specified above, shall have an option of following either the tariff structure and other conditions as stipulated in the Chhattisgarh State Electricity Regulatory Commission (Terms and Conditions for determination of generation tariff and related matters for electricity generated by plants based on non-conventional sources of energy) Regulations, 2008 and its review/amendments from time to time and/or adopt the REC mechanism for pricing of the electricity generated from the project.

 

Provided that such a renewable energy generating plant having entered into a power purchase agreement for sale of electricity at a preferential tariff shall not, in case of premature termination of the agreement, be eligible for participating in the Renewable Energy Certificate (REC) scheme for a period of three years from the date of termination of such agreement or till the scheduled date of expiry of power purchase agreement whichever is earlier, if any order or ruling is found to have been passed by an Appropriate Commission or a competent court against the generating company for material breach of the terms and conditions of the said power purchase agreement.

 

Provided that such projects that opt for either preferential tariff or REC mechanism or the mix there of, shall have to continue with the selected pricing mechanism for the entire Tariff Period or until validity of PPA; whichever is later, as outlined under Chhattisgarh State Electricity Regulatory Commission (Terms and Conditions for determination of generation tariff and related matters for electricity generated by plants based on non-conventional sources of energy) Regulations, 2008 and its review/amendments from time to time.

 

Provided further that such new renewable energy project shall exercise its choice for selection of appropriate Pricing Mechanism prior to execution of the PPA with distribution licensee or with open access consumer, as the case may be.

 

12.2   The REC mechanism entails pricing of two components, namely, electricity component and renewable energy component or REC component representing environmental attributes of renewable energy generation. For the purpose of the Operating Period from FY 2010-11 to FY 2012-13, the effective electricity component price for the year shall be equivalent to Pooled Cost of power purchase excluding renewable energy of the host Utility for the previous year in whose area of jurisdiction such RE generation project is situated, whereas, the price of RECs shall be as discovered in the Power Exchange.

 

Explanation - for the purpose of this Regulation, “Pooled Cost of Power Purchase  means the weighted average pooled price at which the distribution licensee has purchased the electricity including cost of self generation, if any, in the previous year from all the long-term and short-term energy suppliers, but excluding those based on renewable energy sources, as the case may be.

 

Provided that the Central Commission may, in consultation with the Central Agency and Forum of Regulators, from time to time provide for the floor price and forbearance price separately for solar and non-solar RECs (renewable energy component); Provided further that, with the progressive development of the electricity sector, the pricing methodologies for Electricity component and REC shall be reviewed at periodic intervals as may be considered by the appropriate Commission.

 

12.3   Tariff rate, tariff structure and other conditions for existing renewable energy project(s) have already been covered under respective renewable energy Tariff Orders issued by the Commission and the same shall continue to be operative as amended from time to time during the Operating Period, FY 2010-11 to FY 2012-13.

 

 

12.4   The consumers procuring power from RE sources through open access route shall be required to pay cross-subsidy surcharge as per condition of the open access regulations as specified by the Commission. However, no banking facility shall be provided for supply (third party sale) from renewable energy sources through open access.

 

 

13.   Power to remove difficulties

 

The Commission may either suo motu or on an application from any person, review these regulations and pass appropriate orders to remove any difficulty in exercising the provisions of these regulations.

 

14.   Power to Amend

 

The Commission may from time to time add, vary, alter, modify or amend, in provisions of these regulations and pass appropriate orders.

 

15.   Repeal

 

After issuance of these regulations the previous regulations namely Chhattisgarh State Electricity Regulatory Commission (Procurement of Power from renewable sources of energy by distribution licensees) Regulations, 2008 shall stand repealed automatically. However Power Procurement Agreement(s) already executed as per previous Regulations of 2008 shall be further governed by these Regulations.
