Rooftop Solar PV in Thane & Pune

The project aims at installing grid-connected rooftop solar PV systems on the rooftops of residential, commercial, and industrial premises in Thane and Pune through Maharashtra Energy Development Agency (MEDA). The electricity generated from the solar systems could either be entirely fed into the grid at regulated feed-in-tariffs or used for self-consumption with the net-metering approach.

The procurement for techno-commercial, legal and proliferation consultants, and an inception workshop to kick off technical activities were completed in Pune in January 2018. Technical inputs from PWD, municipal corporations, and DISCOM were reviewed, along with a survey of 500 buildings to assess the solar potential of each city in order to develop model legal documents.
