Net metering is the process through which you attain a “dual-benefit “by installing a solar power plant on the roof, open space, walls of the building to generate electricity. Generated power is first used in the building as per the requirement and the surplus power is fed to the grid of utility.
A bi-directional meter is installed in the supply line to register import and export of power. Net metering arrangements, thus, combine elements of captive power consumption and exchange of power with the utility.
Under Net Metering Policy, all consumers of electricity having minimum sanctioned load of 1.25KW and maximum of 12.50 MW who intend to generate their own electricity and desire to contribute towards environmental protection can install Solar PV plants on Roof-Tops/ Walls/Open area of Individual Households, Industries, Commercial Establishments, Institutions, Residential Complexes, Schools, Colleges, Hospitals, Sheds, Cold Stores, Government and Semi-Government Buildings, etc.
