MIS for SOLAR Water Heater Installations (SOLARWHIN) in India(G-2-B) Application

10.41 Prime Minster of India has initiated a new scheme namely “Jawaharlal Nehru National Solar Mission” (JNNSM) which aims at development and deployment of Solar Energy Technologies in the country. It is being implemented through Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE). Installation of Solar Water Heater is one of the schemes of JNNSM. Through this scheme Govt. is distributing subsidies for installation of Solar Water Heaters.

10.42 This scheme is being implemented through selected Solar Water Heater Manufacturers and State Nodal Agencies. Some of the Channel Partners from among these Manufacturers, based on some criteria are accredited by MNRE. Under this scheme, proposals on installation of Solar Water Heaters (SWH) are submitted by the Channel Partners for the area of their jurisdiction. Once the proposal is approved by the Ministry, corresponding sanction orders are issued to the Channel Partners. Based on the submitted information on the status of the installation of sanctioned SWH, the necessary reimbursement of subsidy is made to the Channel Partners. The Ministry verifies each and every installation of the SWHs before issuing sanctions on the subsidy based on certain conditions of the scheme.

10.43 For effective monitoring of installation of Solar Water Heater and disbursement of subsidies to customers in India, a web-enabled MIS has been designed, developed and implemented. This MIS facilitates online submission of information on details of installation of SWH by Channel partners at customer premises. The system automatically calculates the subsidy sanctioned to the customers based on certain criteria and helps the Ministry to monitor the subsidy disbursement. The system keeps track of the duplicate claims on subsidy, installation of duplicate collectors etc. It also helps to track the complaint, if any, on the installation of SWH through SMS by the customer. At present, database contains approximately 4.25 lakh customer’s details and installation of more than 20.50 lakh sq. mtr. Collector Area.

Concessional Custom/Excise Duty Exemption Certificate Monitoring System(G-2-B) Application

10.44 A Web based application has been designed, developed and implemented for online submission of Total Bill of Material (BoM) and issue of Concessional Customs Duty Certificates (CCDC) and Excise Duty Exemption Certificate (EDEC) by this Ministry for availing duty benefits by the Solar Power Project Developers (SPDs) for initial setting up of their solar power plants in India.

10.45 SPDs located at any place in the country are required to first register himself through this web portal. System generated Login ID and Password is sent to the SPD through his registered e-mail address. Using this Login Id and Password, SPD submit the total Bill of Material (BoM) online for which the CCDC and EDEC is required for the establishing the project. Upon submission of total BoM by any SPD, a unique alpha numeric code is generated by the system which gets printed on all documents pertaining to the SPDs. The project developer shall submit the Application and total BoM to the concerned State Nodal Agency (SNA) after duly certified by the Chartered Engineer. The State Nodal Agency (SNA) scrutinizes the above documents/Total Bill of Material and forwards them to the Ministry with

suitable recommendations for issue of CCDC/EDEC. After verification of the documents/Total BoM by the Ministry, a verification code, generated by the system, is also endorsed on each certificate. Custom/Excise authorities can verify the genuineness of the certificate on-line. There are different reports generated online to assist Ministry for analysis of CCDC/EDEC generation data.

MIS for Solar Photovoltaic System Installations (SPIN) in India (G-2-B) Application

10.46 Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE) launched Jawaharlal Nehru National Solar Mission (JNNSM) during 2010-11. This aims at development and deployment of Solar Energy Technologies in the country. In the 2nd phase of the JNNSM a scheme for “Off-Grid” and “Grid-Connected Rooftop” has been launched.

Off-Grid

10.47 The objective of this scheme is to create awareness and demonstrate effective and innovative use of Solar systems for individual/ community/ institutional/ industrial applications and to encourage replacement of kerosene, diesel, electricity and other fuels wherever possible. This scheme is implemented through multiple implementing agencies (State Nodal Agencies, Channel Partners, NABARD, Local Govt. Departments, etc). Through this scheme Ministry is providing subsidy for the installation of Standalone SPV power plants up to 500kWp, Pump for irrigation and community drinking water, Solar Street lights etc. Off-Grid means there is no grid connectivity. Power generated by Solar Photovoltaic System (SPV) can be used directly and also it will be stored in the batteries so that it can be used at a later time. Initially it is decided to start with Standalone SPV system.

10.48 Channel Partners and different Govt. Agencies including State Nodal Agencies submit the proposal and this proposal is to be approved by PAC (Project Approval Committee) for Channel Partners. Based on the proposal, MNRE may approve or reject the proposal. The approved proposals will be issued sanctions and once sanction is received they will start the installation. After installation, inspection will be conducted by an agency appointed by MNRE. Once inspection is completed they can submit the project completion report for reimbursing the subsidy from the MNRE.

10.49 For effective monitoring of this above scheme, a web based system MIS (SPIN) has been designed, developed and is under implementation for online submission of proposals, projects completion, inspection, issue of sanction including the uploading of all documents. All basic modules are completed.

Grid-Connected Rooftop

10.50 The objective of this scheme is to promote the grid connected SPV rooftop and small SPV power generating plants among the residential, community, institutional, industrial and commercial establishments. There is a large potential available for generating solar power using unutilized space on rooftops and wastelands around buildings. Small quantities of power generated by each individual household, industrial building, commercial building or any other type of building can be used to partly fulfil the requirement of the building occupants and surplus, if any, can be fed into the grid.

10.51 In grid connected rooftop or small SPV system, the DC power generated from SPV panel is converted to AC power using power conditioning unit and is fed to the grid either of 33 kV/11 kV three phase lines or of 440/220 Volt three/single phase line depending on the capacity of the system installed at institution/commercial establishment or residential complex and the regulatory framework specified for respective States. They generate power during the day time which is utilized fully by powering captive loads and feed excess power to the grid as long as grid is available.
10.52 This scheme is implemented through multiple implementing agencies (State Nodal Agencies, Channel Partners, SECI, Financial Institutions, Local Govt. Departments, etc). Through this scheme Ministry provides Central Financial Assistance (CFA) upto 30% of the capital cost for plants ranging from 1 kWp to 500 kWp in residential, commercial and institutional sectors.

10.53 To monitor the progress of installation of SPV systems through the different agencies, a web based online system has been designed, developed and is under implementation. Different levels of users with various privileges are created. Various levels of login screens were prepared and nearly 160 users were created in the system for feeding the data in the desired format. NIC SMS gateway is also integrated in the application.

MIS for Solar Power Generation Monitoring System(G-2-B) Application

10.54 Solar Power Generation Monitoring System (SPGMS) is a web based online system which has been designed, developed and implemented to assist the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE) in monitoring the progress of installations and power generations of Solar Photovoltaic/Solar Thermal projects located across the country supported by the Ministry. Solar Photovoltaic/Solar Thermal projects developers log-on the web based MIS through the user id and password issued to them by the Ministry and fills online the status of their installations of project, on that basis various general reports for the progress of each Solar Photovoltaic/Solar Thermal projects, state wise progress of projects, technology used in the project etc. are generated.

10.55 Another feature of the project is that after commissioned of the project, developer provides online day to day power generation and the solar irradiance data. This system helps Ministry in generating report on monthly power generation by the commissioned project and calculates the Capacity Utilization Factor (CUF) based on these data. This System also helps to analyze the Technologies used such as Thin Film and Crystalline in the projects.

10.56 Various pictographic (Bar/Pie chart) reports such as State wise/month wise/Developer wise commissioned project, Technology used by project developers, variation of Solar Irradiance during the month, Net Exported Power by developers etc. are also generated.

IntraMNRE Web Portal(G-2-E) Application
