[Update - 31-08-2014: The FAQs page has been updated. CERC Benchmark Cost and
related details have been updated from 2013-14 figures to those of 2014-15.]

General
How much land is required to setup a 1MW solar power generation Unit?
The land required for a 1 MW power plant setup is around 4.5-5 acres for Crystalline technology
and around 6.5-7.5 acres for Thin-Film technology. This is only a rough benchmark and may vary
based on technology and efficiency of panels.

What is the life-time of a typical Solar Power plant?


The useful life of a typical Solar Power plant is considered to be 25 years. This is the duration for
which long-term PPAs are signed and financial models are built. However, Solar Power plants
can run beyond 25 years while producing a lower output. Many Solar Panel manufacturers
guarantee an output of 90% at the end of 10 years and 80% at the end of 25 years.

What is the annual energy generated from a 1 MW Solar Power plant?

The usual benchmark for energy generated from a 1 MW Solar Power plant is considered as 1.5
Million units. This is only a benchmark and should not be considered as the actual output for a
given location. The amount of actual energy generated from a Solar Power Plant in an year
depends on both internal and external factors. External factors which are beyond the control of a
Solar developer can include the following:

Number of sunny days

Solar Irradiation

Day Temperatures

Air Mass

The output also depends on the following internal factors all of which are within the control of a
Solar Developer:

Plant Location

Usage of Solar Tracking systems

Quality of equipment used

Workmanship of the EPC contractor

O&M activities

What are the various modes under which we can setup a Solar Power plant?
The various modes under which a Solar Power plant can be setup depends on the specific
requirement. All the following are valid modes and the costs for each kind of system varies based
on various factors:

Off-Grid Captive Consumption for domestic premises

Off-Grid Captive Consumption for commercial premises

Grid Connected (Net Metered) Captive Consumption for domestic premises

Grid Connected (Net Metered) Captive Consumption for commercial premises

Sale of Power generated to local Distribution Company (DISCOM)

Sale of Power generated to 3rd Party consumer (Industry or Commercial entity)

What is the cost of setting up a Rooftop Solar Power plant for domestic or commercial
use?

Rooftop Solar Power plants can be broadly categorized into Battery-based and NonBattery based systems. The benchmark cost set by MNRE for the year 2013-14 for these
systems are Rs.90-100 per W for Non-Battery based systems and Rs.170-210 per W for
Battery-based systems. More details can be accessed on the following MNRE
webpage: http://mnre.gov.in/file-manager/UserFiles/amendmends-benchmarkcost-aa-jnnsm-2013-14.pdf

What size Solar Power plant is required for domestic or commercial use?
Identifying the Solar Power plant size for your domestic or commercial premises depends on the
following factors:

Wattage of appliances to be run on Solar

Monthly energy consumption from these appliances

Energy Backup or Days of Autonomy required

Roof space available for plant setup

Based on these factors, the power plant sizing can be accordingly done at your end.

Permissions and Bank Loans


What permissions/clearances are required to setup a Solar PV Plant?
A certain set of permissions need to be obtained and documents need to be submitted in order to
setup a Solar PV plant. While these may vary from state-to-state, in order to get a Solar PV
Project Accredited by AP State Load Dispatch Center (AP SLDC) for REC mechanism, the
following are the statutory clearances and environmental clearances to be furnished:
1. Industrial Clearance
2. Land conversion (Agricultural to Non-Agricultural)
3. Environmental Clearance Certificate from APPCB, Hyderabad
4. Contract labour license from AP Labour Department
5. Fire Safety certificate from AP Fire Department
6. Latest tax receipt from the Municipal/Gram Panchayat for the factory land.
7. Auditor compliance certificate regarding fossil fuel utilization
8. Approval from Chief Electrical Inspector

9. Clearance from Forest department


Also, all necessary approvals/agreements before start of Solar PV project construction are to be
furnished as and when necessary. These include the following:
10. Land purchase
11. Power Evacuation arrangement permission letter from DISCOM
12. Confirmation of Metering Arrangement and location
13. ABT meter type, Manufacture, Model, Serial No. details for Energy Metering.
14. Copy of PPA (important as Preferential PPA projects are not eligible for REC
mechanism)
15. Proposed Model and make of plant equipment
16. Undertaking for compliance with the usage of fossil fuel criteria as specified by
MNRE
17. Details of Connectivity with DISCOM
18. Connectivity Diagram and Single Line Diagram of Plant
19. Details of pending court cases with APERC, Supreme Court of India, High Court
of A.P. or any other courts
20. Any other documents requested by AP SLDC
While these are the documents that AP SLDC requires for REC project accreditation, these are
typically the clearances/documents required in general for a Solar PV project.

Can Solar Power developers avail loans from banks for Solar Power plant setup? What is
the loan % and what criteria does a bank/lending institution look for?
There are 2 kinds of Financing mechanisms that are usually discussed Recourse Financing
and Non-Recourse Financing. Recourse Financing requires collaterals and other extensive
guarantees from the Solar developer who wishes to avail loan. Non-Recourse Financing, on the
other hand, does not require any additional collateral as the Asset or Power Plant itself is the
collateral in this case. Recourse Financing is the prevalent mechanism in India currently owing to
lack of confidence of banks in the Power and Solar Power sector. The typical Debt-Equity Ratio
(Loan to Investment Ratio) for Solar Power plants is 70:30. And the typical collaterals required for
a 70% project cost loan could be in the range of 40-60% project cost. This, however, varies from
bank to bank as each bank has its own risk perception/mitigation strategy, exposure targets to
various sectors and Non-Performing Asset (NPA) limits.

Setup Costs and Power Sale Tariff


What would be the total project cost excluding the cost of land?
Total project cost per MW would be in the range of Rs.6.5 Crores-Rs.8 Crores depending on the
kind of technology you are using, whether or not you are using tracking systems, the kind of EPC
Contractor you choose for power plant system etc. CERC recently announced the benchmark
tariff for setup of Solar PV and Thermal Plants in India. Here are the links to the documents
containing more
details: http://www.cercind.gov.in/2014/orders/SO353.pdf and http://www.cercind.gov.in/201
4/orders/SO354.pdf
The table below indicates CERC determined benchmark cost for Financial Year 2014-15.

What would be the O & M cost?

Central Electricity Regulatory Commission (CERC) benchmark costs for O&M is Rs.12.3
lakhs/year/MW for 2014-15 with a 5.72% increase every year. This varies from project to project
based on the number of people you employ for maintenance, frequency of cleaning of panels,
onsite-engineer availability etc.

What would be the per unit expected sale price?


This depends on the mode of sale of power and the consumer of power.

In the case of sale of power to DISCOM, the prevailing Average Pooled Power Purchase
Cost (APPC) will be applicable.

In the case of sale of power to 3rd Party consumer, a mutually agreed price can be agreed
upon and accordingly a PPA can be signed.

It is to be kept in mind that several additional charges such as Wheeling Charges, Distribution
Charges, Open-Access Charges, Cross-Subsidy Charges are applicable in the case of sale of
power to 3rd party. These charges vary from State-to-State and DISCOM-to-DISCOM and even
based on voltage levels.

RECs and Carbon Credits (CERs)


Which kinds of Solar Power plants are eligible for REC benefits?
Solar Power Plants need to be Grid-Connected on order to avail REC benefits. Though there
have been recommendations on multiple occasions that Off-Grid Solar Power plants be made
eligible for RECs, the proposal is still under discussion. Solar Power plants setup under the
following 3 modes are eligible for REC benefits:

Captive Power plants

Sale of power to Govt. at APPC

Sale of power to 3rd party at mutually agreed price

Captive Power Plants are eligible for RECs subject to the condition that
Concessional/Promotional Transmission or Wheeling Tariffs and/or banking facility benefit are not
availed. Also, Solar Power plants setup under Preferential Tariff schemes are not eligible for
RECs. Check out more information on RECs on our REC page here
http://efficientcarbon.com/services/energy/renewable-energy-certificates

Is there a minimum size for Solar Power plants to be eligible for RECs?
As per the Second Amendment of REC Principal Regulations 2013, there is no lower limit
for Solar Power plants to be eligible for RECs. Though it previously stated that 250 KW is the

minimum size for Solar Power plants to be eligible for RECs, the same has been removed as
part of the above stated amendment.

Can CDM benefits (Carbon Credits) be availed for a Solar Power plant?
Yes. REC Mechanism and CDM are mutually exclusive and hence a power developer can claim
CDM benefits (Carbon Credits) also. However, it is to be noted that the current trading prices of
Carbon Credits or Certified Emission Reductions (CERs) at the European ETS system is less
than 0.7 Euro which are pretty low compared to the 15-20 Euro trading prices a few years back.
At these prices, getting a Solar project registered under CDM mechanism does not make any
sense as the payback for the expenses in the process itself takes several years. Unless the Solar
Power Plant is of size 10 MW or more it does not make financial sense to go for Carbon Credits
(CERs).

Benefits for Solar Power plants


What kind of Central/State benefits are available for Solar Power plant setup?
Solar plants can be categorized into 2 broad categories Grid Connected and Off-Grid plants.
The usual Govt. support available for an Off-Grid plant is a Capital Subsidy of 30% on the project
cost upto a maximum size of 500 KW. This can be claimed by the Manufacturer/Supplier/EPC
Contractor (should be an MNRE accredited supplier) on behalf of the customer. The list of MNRE
accredited suppliers (all across India) can be downloaded from http://mnre.gov.in/filemanager/UserFiles/list_channelpartners_sp_jnnsm.pdf

Subsidy is not available for Grid Connected plants that engage in sale of power either to the local
DISCOM or a 3rd party. Following are the benefits a Solar Power Developer involved in Sale of
Power Generated can avail:

Accelerated Depreciation Upto 90% of asset value with 80% depreciation allowed in
the first year.

10 years Tax Holiday Tax holiday can be availed for 10 years during which time
Minimum Alternate Tax is still applicable (19.9305%) which can be offset against tax
payable later.

Other State specific exemptions which vary from state to state.

Can Accelerated Depreciation benefits be claimed by Solar Power Developers?


Yes. Accelerated Depreciation benefits can be claimed by Off-Grid and Grid-Connected Solar
Power Developers in order to offset taxes on profits from their connected businesses. Typically,
90% depreciation is allowed with 80% allowed in the first year.

Can Capital Subsidy be claimed for a 1 MW Solar Power plant (or greater size)?
No. Capital Subsidy cannot be claimed for plants beyond 500 KW size. Also, capital subsidy is
made available only to Off-Grid and Decentralized Solar Power applications and not Grid
Connected Plants that are in the business of selling the generated power.

Is there any subsidy available for Solar Power plant setup?


Capital Subsidy of 30% is applicable only for captive power plants up to 100 KW. Subsidy will not
be applicable in case of sale of power.

Setting up Solar Power plant in Andhra Pradesh


We would like to setup a Solar power plant in Andhra Pradesh but we have not
participated in AP solar bidding. What are the other options?
Since you have not participated in AP Solar Bidding, one other way would be the REC route. You
can sell the generated power to APTRANSCO or third party consumer. Through this route, you
sell power to APTRANSCO/third party and also claim RECs for the same. This way, you will be
able to get a base tariff (APPC) from APTRANSCO and then additional revenue can be
generated through sale of Solar RECs. However, it is to be kept in mind that the following
additional benefits may be availed for a Solar PV Project commissioned before June 2014
subject to the condition that REC benefits are not availed (in case of Captive Generating Plants
and Plants setup under Preferential Tariff basis):

Exemption from Electricity Duty

Exemption of Wheeling Charges, Transmission Charges and Cross-subsidy Charges

Refund of VAT

Refund of Stamp Duty and Registration Charges for purchase of land

However, it has to be kept in mind that REC revenue is market driven and can fluctuate as both
demand and supply are pretty low on Solar front right now. Kindly refer to our monthly newsletter
REChronicles (http://efficientcarbon.com/services/energy/renewable-energy-certificates) for more and
up-to-date information on the REC market.

Miscellaneous

I have land and some company posted that they are looking for people having land and
ready to invest about Rs.10 lakhs. Can I go ahead with this investment?
It is difficult to comment much without more information about the company. However, it is
advised to check the companys track record to understand the companys previous projects and
the revenues/returns from such projects. A couple of things that you might have already
understood from the info on this FAQs page is that a typical good quality Solar PV Power plant
required Rs.6.5-8 Crores for setup. In line with this, the investment of Rs.10 lakhs you have been
asked to make comes to around 1.5% of total project cost which is not much. If your land also
has certain value, that can be factored into your equity contribution to the project. While we am
not sure about the promise made by the company to you in terms of returns, kindly make sure
that your investment has been duly considered in project equity and the associated returns. Also,
it is possible that there are several other investors such as you who might be investing in the
project. You might ask the company details regarding the same. Following are a few more things
you can ask the company to provide:

Is the entire project equity funded from investors such as you? If Yes, who are the other
investors? If No, what is the debt portion, where is it coming from and what is the
interest rate?

Where is the project going to be setup?

Who is the power sold to and at what price is it being sold?

What are the yearly estimated revenues and returns?

When would you as an investor start making money (important as payback period is
reasonably high for Solar Projects)?

As an investor, you have every right to know the answers to these questions. Kindly evaluate all
scenarios and clarify all you queries before making such an investment.

Friends,
Some Facts to be remembered before anyone thinks and talks solar.
1. Land per MW : 5 acres
2. EPC cost : 6.3 to7.0 cr. Quotes based on EPC company, status and offerings in EPC
contracts.
3. Indian Finance : approx. 12% Interest rate
4. Investor/Developer : Approx 2 Cr /MW
5. Investment Return Ratio : Approx 14%
6. Minimum Recommended Project Size : 5 MW
Summary:
Smaller projects (< 5 MW) the land should be next door to Substation becos.
Approx. cost /Km of evacuation +Stringing can be anywhere upto 15 lakhs/KM.
Hence if project is just 1 or 2 MW then the whole cost of this will be on the project).
Financial:
Generation approx. = 15.5L units/MW/year
PPA = Rs 6.5/Unit (approx)
Yearly revenue = Rs 100 lakhs per YEAR
Net Revenue = Rs 90 lakhs /YEAR
Loan 70% of Rs 7 Cr = Rs 4.9 Cr
Loan Interest = 12%
Repayment period = 9 Years
So If you can spare approx 2 Cr and wait for 9 years you can enjoy approx 80 Lakhs/Year 10th
year onwards
Major and Quality EPC companies will prefer 5 MW & above as energy, effort and optimization
happens 5MW and above.
Cheershappy solarizing
So guys keep these in mind before anyone entertains Solar Project thoughts.

seems this is one more bubble too many consultants and too many unsophisticated investors
wanting to setup 1MV plants. if i see it correctly the ROI is about 10%..which you can also get
in FD with out any risk (correct me if i am wrong here). else keep away from this it will just be
bubble like realestate.. solar per unit prices will only go down with improved efficiency of PV.
unless you are doing this on massive scale its not worth the risk. if you try to do with borrowed
money on 15% interest rates you will sink in no time.. this is no growth business you cant grow
it if you dont pump in more money and all that money will have to be converted into assets
unlike other businesses . this is high risk you are warned..

The expected price for 1 unit of solar power in Telangana is Rs.7. The expected sale of units is
1.5 MU/MW/year. The income would be Rs.1,05,00,000/MW/year of solar power. But the O&M
expenditure as per the above FAQs is Rs. 1,23,00,000/MW/year. How is this project feasible? Pl.
clarify and enlighten so that we can meet you for further discussions.

The typical O&M costs are 7-10 lakhs/Yr/Mw. I donot understand the 123lakhs.It seems a
typo..

M.S.Raju September 8, 2014 at 12:19 pm

As per the above, the expected income for 1 MW/year is 15,00,000X7= Rs. 1,05,00,000. The
O&M expr. per 1 MW per year is Rs. 1,23,00,000. Hence the proposal is not feasible. Pl. clarify.

PRADEEP (Post author)September 9, 2014 at 12:09 am

Dear Mr.Raju,
Apologies. It was indeed a typo as pointed out by Mr.Gowri Shankar. The O&M cost per
year per MW as suggested by CERC is Rs.12.3 Lakhs. This can vary from project to
project. You can refer to the following docs for CERC benchmark Cost and Unit Tariff
details
http://www.cercind.gov.in/2014/orders/SO353.pdf and http://www.cercind.gov.in/2014/orders/SO354.p
df

These are not hard and fast numbers and can be different for each project. It is only a
suggested benchmark.

PRADEEP (Post author)September 9, 2014 at 12:12 am

Dear Mr.Shankar,
1 Unit of Energy is represented as 1KWhr or 1000Whr i.e. 1000 Watt-hours.
Energy is based on time but power is instantaneous. A 100W incandescent bulb running
for 10 hours consumes 100W*10hours = 1000Whr or 1 Unit of Energy. Similarly, a 40W
Tubelight running all day (24 hours) consumes 40W*24hours = 960Whr i.e.
approximately 1 Unit of Energy.
Hope its clear.
