The Maharashtra State Electricity Regulatory Commission has notified the Net Metering in Maharashtra for Roof-top Solar PV applications with regulations.
The government has thrown its weight and money behind the development of solar technology in recent years. Net metering is only one of the ways to convert a simple rooftop into a solar power plant that is viable and sustainable at both institutional and individual levels.
What is net metering?
Maharashtra electricity board keeps track of the energy consumed/ generated by a solar-powered unit through net metering. It allows the consumers to feed surplus and excess solar power into the state's power grid and receive a credit on their electricity bill.
Net Metering in Maharashtra
Maharashtra has the 8th largest installed solar power generation capacity in the country. Maharashtra's solar capacity in the fourth quarter of 2018 stood at 1,311 MW, with solar PV application now accounting for 3% of the overall installed electricity generation capacity. The government has an entire website dedicated to this need.
