Promotion of Solar Energy

 

           The Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE) has been implementing various schemes in the country, including in Madhya Pradesh, to promote solarenergy.

The names of the schemes are as under:

i. Development of Solar Parks and Ultra Mega Solar PowerProjects.

  1. Scheme for setting up 1000 MW of Grid-Connected Solar PV Power Projects by the Central Public Sector Undertakings (CPSUs) and the Government of India organisations with Viability Gap Funding(VGF).
  2. Scheme for setting up 300 MW of Grid-Connected Solar PV Power Projects by Defence Establishments and Para Military Forces withVGF.
  3. Pilot-cum-demonstration projects for development of grid connected solar PV power plants on canal banks and canal tops.
  4. Bundling Scheme - 15000 MW grid-connected solar PV power plants through NTPC Ltd./NVVN.
  5. VGF Scheme for setting up of 2000 MW of Grid Connected Solar PV Power Projects through Solar Energy Corporation of India(SECI).

vii. VGF Scheme for setting up of 5000 MW of Grid Connected Solar PV Power Projects throughSECI.

viii. Installation of Grid Connected Solar Rooftop PowerPlants.

ix. Off-Grid Solar PVScheme.

 

   The details of quantum of funds provided to Madhya Pradesh under various schemes during the last two years are given in Annexure-I.

 

The details of provision of subsidy for consumption of solar energy are given inAnnexure-II.

 

 

Above information was given by Minister of State (I/C) for New and Renewable Energy and Power Shri R. K Singh in a written reply in the Lok Sabha today.

Scheme

Central Financial Assistance (CFA) / Subsidy

1.

Scheme for Development of Solar Parks and Ultra Mega Solar Power Projects

  • Rs.20 lakhs/MW or 30% of the project cost including Grid- connectivity cost, whichever islower
  • CFA @ Rs 25.00 lakh per park for DPR preparation of solar parks, conducting surveys,etc.

2.

Operationalization of 300 MWSolar PV Projects by defence establishment and para military forces

  • The bidders selected on the basis of bids for minimum VGF requirement for the project with commitment to supply solar power at Rs. 5.50/KWh for 25years.
  • The upper limits of the VGF are asfollows:
    1. Category-I: Rs.2.5 crore/MW for project capacity up to 5 MW or 30% of the project cost whichever is lower;
    2. Category-II: Rs. 2 crores/MW for project capacity greater than 5 MW up to 25 MW or 30% of the project cost whichever is lower;and
    3. Category-III: Rs. 1.5 crore /MW for project capacity greater than 25 MW or 30% of the project cost whichever islower.

Keeping in view the technology upgradation and economies of scales, the upper limit of VGF was revised on 17.02.2017 to @ Rs. 1.10 Cr./MW for all projects irrespective of sizes for which tenders were not brought out and the tariff was revised from Rs. 5.50/KWh to Rs.4.50/kWh.

3.

Scheme for Setting up of 750 MW Grid-connected Solar PV Power Projects under Batch-1 of Phase-II of JNNSM with Viability Gap Funding Support

The selection of the bidders has been based on the Viability Gap Funding (VGF) required for the project in an ascending order up to the full capacity. Viability Gap Funding (VGF) is limited to 30% of the project cost or 2.5 crore per MW, whichever is lower. Solar Energy Corporation of India (SECI) has signed PPA with such project developers for purchasing entire power from the project for 25 years at 5.45 Rs. per unit (4.75 Rs. per unit for projects availing accelerated

depreciation).

4.

Scheme for Setting up of 2000 MW Grid-connected Solar PV Power Projects under Batch-III of Phase-II of JNNSM with Viability Gap Funding (VGF) Support

The Project developer is provided a VGF based on his bid. The upper limit for VGF is kept at Rs.1.0 Crore/MW with a pre- determined tariff of Rs. 4.50/kWh.

5.

Scheme for Setting up of 5000 MW Grid-connected Solar PV Power Projects under Batch-IV of Phase- II of JNNSM with Viability Gap Funding (VGF) Support

The Project developer is provided a VGF based on his bid. The upper limit for VGF is kept at Rs. 1.0 crore/MW. SECI will select projects through competitive e-bidding based on minimum VGF sought (quoted in INR/MW), or there may be a provisionforquotingadiscountedtariff(quotedinINR/kWh)

with zero VGF.

Scheme

Central Financial Assistance (CFA) / Subsidy

6.

Grid Connected Rooftop

CFA of up to 30% of project cost /bench mark cost (whichever is lower) is being provided for installation of Grid Connected Rooftop Solar Projects in Residential, Institutional and Social sectors in General Category States and up to 70% of the project cost/benchmark cost (whichever is lower) in Special Category States (i.e. North Eastern States including Sikkim, Uttarakhand, Himachal Pradesh, Jammu & Kashmir, Lakshadweep and Andaman& Nicobar Islands).

 

For Govt. sector, achievement linked incentives are being provided. Subsidy/CFA is not applicable for commercial and

industrial establishments in private sector

7.

  • Rs. 1.5 crore/MW or 30% of the project cost, whichever is lower, for Canal Bank SPVprojects.

The Scheme is closed for new sanctions.

8.

Scheme for setting up of 1000 MW of Grid-Connected Solar PV Power projects by Central Public Sector Undertakings (CPSUs) under Batch- V of Phase II of JNNSM

The Scheme has provision for Viability Gap Funding as follows:

 

  • Rs.1 Cr. /MW, for projects where domestically produced Cells and Modules are used
  • Rs.50    Lakh   /MW,   for   projects    where             domestically produced Modules areused.

The Scheme is closed for new sanctions.
