BSES Launches Pilot Project for Installing Solar Micro Grid with Battery Storage

BSES Yamuna Power Limited (BYPL) has announced that it has launched an initial project to institute solar micro grids, thus becoming one of the foremost discoms in the country to do so in a city locale.

“These micro grids will combine rooftop solar with lithium-ion-based battery energy storage systems. As a technology demonstrator, four such micro grids have been set-up at BYPL offices in East Delhi,” BSES said in an announcement.

The company also further that the energy produced through rooftop solar is used and the excess is fed into the grid, which has the latent to reduce electricity bills.

As per the declaration, a pan discom (including at consumer location) roll-out of 1,000 such solar-energy battery storage micro grids has the potential to save about 62 million units of electricity and over three lakh litres of diesel amounting to about Rs 41 crore on an annualized basis – cumulatively for the discom and the consumers, which would lead to a CO2 decline of about 51,000 tonnes.

 “The initial results of the pilot project at four BYPL locations in East Delhi are very encouraging. At these locations, the discom has installed rooftop solar plans varying between 5 kilowatt (KW) and 7 KW and energy battery storage between 7 kilowatt hour (kWh) and 10 kWh. They show that over this period only 8 per cent of grid power (net of exports) was used,” BSES believed.

The discom has tied-up with Council on Energy, Environment and Water to test and assess the system performance of the pilot project.
