From system planning to commissioning, Oorjan can offer you a turnkey solution for solar energy. If you have little cash, Oorjan can also help you with bank financing. Because the APPC is quite low, the oversize of the rooftop solar installation does not offer many financial benefits. We recommend Gujarat electricity consumer size their system to generate only as much as their average monthly consumption. In practice, the 50% limit on the sanctioned load will likely be reached before the consumption-based size. Previously, GERC had launched a contract authorizing Gujarat Urja Vikas Nigam Limited (GUVNL) and other state-owned DISCOMs to source electricity from small solar projects with a capacity of up to 4 MW to meet their RPO targets. The Gujarat Electricity Regulatory Commission (GERC) has published the tariff framework for the purchase of solar electricity by distribution licensees in the state. The Commission had requested proposals from all stakeholders and had scheduled a public hearing on the proposed tariff framework for solar projects on 7 March 2020. Rooftop solar has reduced your electricity bill by 8,447 USD – 4,629 USD – 3,818 USD every two months and 22,908 USD per year. This implies a simple return on investment (ROI) of 15.5% per year. Gujarat is blessed with an abundance of sunshine – the entire state has an overall horizontal irradiation of more than 5.5 kWh/m2/day, which is even very high in global comparison.
Gujarat has been a pioneer in innovative concepts such as solar panels on irrigation canals. As of March 31, 2016, Gujarat had 1,100 MW of photovoltaic installations installed. This year, under the 2015 directive, geDA introduced rooftop solar installation for individual electricity consumers. Solar power projects designed for self-consumption and not registered under the REC mechanism are subject to 50% of the wheel charges applicable to ordinary consumers of open access. Solar projects set up for the sale of third parties and registered under the REC mechanism are subject to 100% of bicycle fees applicable to ordinary open access consumers.
