Solar Plants

On Grid System

The solar PV system will generate power and feed excess power to the grid after supplying to the customer load only on the availability of the grid. The amount of excess unit exported to the grid will be credited in your account as per PPA guide lines.

Off Grid System

The OFF GRID system does not need grid support it works independently because day time energy will be stored in the battery and it can be used as an when required by the customer.

Net Metering Process

Solar Net-metering In Bangalore a facility known as
“net-metering” has been introduced. In net metering the solar energy exported to the grid is deducted from the energy imported from the grid subject to certain conditions. The consumer pays for the net-energy imported from the grid. To enable net-metering BESCOM will replace the existing service connection meter with a bidirectional meter that displays the import and export energy separately.

1. An ONLINE application should be filled by the consumer in the prescribed FORMAT and register on BESCOM portal.

2. Pay registration fee along with facilitation fee.

3. Copy of the online filled application along with necessary documents (copy of electricity bill, self certification of not availing subsidy from MNRE) with registration fee receipt shall be submitted to jurisdiction O&M, Sub-division office, BESCOM

4. BESCOM will do feasibillty and PPA and give permission to start the work.

5. After installation BESCOM team will come for the synchronization of the PV plant with the grid.

6. A change of metering cubicle may be required if PV plant is connecting to grld via transformer. The cost of the cubicle will be extra.
