Tata Power, India’s largest India’s largest integrated power company, has operationalised the net metering for the Rooftop Solar photovoltaic (RTS PV) system installed at the premises of Vardhan Industries Ltd, a Tata Power consumer, in Mumbai. This is the first installation of net meter by Tata Power in its Mumbai distribution area under the procedure outlined in the MERC (Net Metering for Roof-top Solar Photo Voltaic Systems) Regulations, 2015, a release from Tata Power noted.

A net meter has the ability to record the import and export of power. Through net metering arrangement, a consumer can drive surplus units of electricity generated by the solar units into the distribution grid of Tata Power. The units will be then adjusted against the quantum of electricity supplied by Tata Power during applicable billing period. Tata Power has developed a comprehensive architecture to facilitate the connectivity of the consumers’ RTS PV systems with its distribution grid. The company has synchronized the 10kW RTS PV system with its distribution network in the month of February. 

Vardhan Industries Limited had applied for connectivity of its RTS PV system with the Tata Power network under the net metering arrangement.
