We are as surprised as you are! We thought that Uttar Pradesh DISCOMs would be the most resistant in allowing people to connect their Solar Power Systems to the grid. I was quite wide eyed when I analysed the Net Metering Regulations of U.P as well (Read of the policy) which looked great, but I had serious doubts on its implementation.
But, here we are clapping our hands, looking at the sanctioning of the very FIRST net-metering connection in Greater Noida. For all those of you, who have been holding yourself back because of similar doubts, click here to get a free proposal. Here are the details of the Solar Power Plant that Sunkalp Energy installed in Greater Noida.
|Modules||315 Wp x 16, Indian made|
|Solar Inverter||8.2 kVA, 3 phase inverter, Austrian made|
|System Type||Grid Synchronous, net metered|
The project was installed on the Rooftop of Anilesh Enterprises located in Greater Noida and took between 15 days to 1 month after feasibility analysis (by the DISCOM) for the project to be connected to the grid (net-metering connection to be received). This is contrary to the 6 months it took us for sanctioning of the first net-metering connection in Delhi. We have come a long way. The process of getting a net-metering connection seems to have ironed out over time lending more confidence among customers. We are proud of the progress that has been made in the industry and now achieving 40 GW does not seem just a dream (Read more).
So here we present the first net-metered site in Uttar Pradesh. Take a look at the site and tell us when you want to install in yours!
