The Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE) has announced that acting on requests made by implementing agencies has endorsed old off-grid solar power plants to be connected to the grid potential locations.
State nodal agencies and/or implementing agencies under the off-grid and decentralized solar PV applications programme had requested the ministry for allowing the connection of the old off-grid solar systems be connected to the grid.
In this respect, “it has been decided with the approval of Competent Authority that the places where off-grid solar power plants were earlier installed and reliable grid supply is now available with net-metering provision, such plants can be connected with the grid as it will lead to optimal utilization of assets. However, conversion to a grid-connected system of such plants is subject to applicable regulatory provisions and cost of such conversion will be borne by the concerned State Government/ beneficiary departments,” the ministry issued in a notification.
In April, the Maharashtra State Electricity Distribution Co. Ltd. (MSEDCL) has been allowable to procure wind power from projects with which its Energy Purchase Agreements (EPA) have expired after the Maharashtra Electricity Regulatory Commission (MERC) approved its petition.
