“Photovoltaic” is composite of two words. “Photo” means Light. “Voltaic” means producing Electricity. The term “photovoltaic” taken from Greek. Phos meaning “Light” and the name of Italian Physicist-Volta, after whom the volt (and consequently voltage) are named.

Solar PV panels manufactured as per National and International standards are robust and can withstand the normal stresses subjected to nature.
A PV system is made up of different components. These include PV modules (groups of PV cells), which are commonly called PV panels; one or more batteries; a charge regulator or controller for a stand-alone system; an inverter for a utility- grid-connected system and when alternating current (ac) rather than direct current (dc) is required; wiring; and mounting hardware or a framework.
Majority of electrical equipment used for domestic/commercial/ Industrial purposes are of AC system. So, it is necessary to convert solar power generated at DC system to AC system. An inverter will convert DC to AC system.
For every kW peak SRTPV system installed on a South facing roof, the system will generate 4 to 6 units per day. However, the energy generation depends upon the weather conditions and reduces by around 10% for an East or West facing roof.
The cost of the SRTPV system depends on the make of the Grid-tied system used, Type of Roof, the height of building etc. However, the approximate cost of Grid-tied SRTPV systems varies between Rs.60,000 to Rs. 90,000 per kWp. The cost of Hybrid Systems is more as they include the cost of Battery and other Control & protection systems.
Yes. All registered metered consumers coming under the jurisdiction of ESCOM area are eligible for installation of the solar RTPV system.
Gases such as Carbon dioxide, water vapor, Nitrous oxide, and Ozone trap the Sun’s heat and do not let it escape. As a result, during the day the Earth’s surface gets Warm. But when Earth cools down in the night, the heat is released back into the Air. However, some heat still remains trapped in the lower atmosphere, keeping our planet Warm. This natural process is called Green House effect.
Solar PV system can be used to power your entire home’s electrical systems, including lights, cooling systems, and appliances.
Net-meter (bi-directional meter) is having provision to record energy imported from the grid to meet the load and energy exported to the grid after self- consumption. Both energy import and export records in the net-meter. The difference between Export and Import readings is the actual energy consumed/delivered.The net meter records surplus energy exported to BESCOM grid. When your system generates less energy than your consuming load, the meter records energy imported from BESCOM grid.
The SRTPV Panels will be normally having 25 years of guaranteed life and Inverter with a guaranteed period of 5 years and same is to be guaranteed by installing agencies.

BESCOM will sign a Power Purchase Agreement with Solar rooftop PV generator which will be in force for 25 years.

Yes. For grid connection, prior approval is required.For off-grid SRTPV systems installation, no permission is required.

Yes. The consumer can download the application form for installation of Solar RTPV system from BESCOM website
Subject to feasibility, permission will be issued normally within 7 working days from the date of registration of application.
The nodal point of contact for SRTPV programme shall be the AEE(Ele), O&M, Sub-division, BESCOM.
Yes. Ministry of New Renewable Energy (MNRE), Ministry of Power, GoI will grant subsidy. For further assistance please visit
Grid parity exists when an alternative energy source generates electricity at a cost matching the price of energy from that of Electricity Supply Companies.
Companies every year and with the reducing trend in Cost of Solar Generation. Every year, Grid parity will be achieved sooner than expected.
