5 MW roof top solar project for Gandhinagar - Gandhinagar Municipal Corporation
  • Start year: 2011
  • Type: Technical/Infrastructure investment
  • Status: Completed

The State government of Gujarat has launched the ambitious “Gandhinagar Solar Rooftop Programme” during 2010-11 in the city of Gandhinagar. The project aims at promoting public participation for the generation and utilization of solar energy. The program involves a PPP between Gujarat Power Corporation Limited (belonging to the State of Gujarat), the Project developer (private party) and rooftop owners, from the domestic. commercial and public sector,. The distribution company in Gandhinagar city is acting as an off taker in this program and has agreed to purchase clean power generated from these projects.
As part of the project a total capacity of 5 MW solar PV will be installed. The project is divided into two clusters with 2.5 MW installations in each one. Out of this 2.5 MW capacity, 2 MW was installed on the rooftops of government buildings and 0.5 MW was installed on private rooftops.
The project developer was selected based on a competitive bidding process and it is responsible to finance, install, own, operate and maintain the solar PV systems. A “Power Purchase Agreement” was signed with the local electricity distribution company and the project developers.
The project developer has signed a “Green incentive & lease agreement” with rooftop owners for a minimum period of 5 years to a maximum period of 25 years. The two selected project developers will get INR 11.21 and INR 11.793 respectively per unit of electricity sold to the distribution company. The property owners will get a Generation Based Incentive (GBI) of INR 3 per unit of electricity generation.
The 5 MW solar rooftop installations are expected to generate 8 million kWh of electricity in a year.
After the success of the program in Gandhinagar, the government of Gujarat is aiming to replicate the PPP based solar rooftop installation in other 5 cities, namely Surat, Vadodara, Mehsana, Rajkot and Bhavnagar.
Applications were invited from interested parties from residential and commercial buildings, educational institutes, industrial establishment and public or government building for the installation of solar PV systems
