Special Instruction for promotion of solar energy net-metering issues, will benefit consumers by reducing the monthly bills

Power Division has issued special instructions to all DISCOs for promoting and further easing installation of net-metering in order to provide opportunity to all electricity consumers to curtail their monthly electricity bills besides optimal utilization of solar potential of the country.

The instructions were issued today during one point agenda on net-metering meeting of Central Power Purchasing Agency  (CPPA).

As per the latest instructions, all the DISCOs have been directed to establish one window for interested net-metering electricity consumers. The appointment of focal persons will in this regard be ensured besides their active engagement on targets assigned by the Power Division. Each officer at operational level will be assigned targets of net-metering which will be properly monitored. These targets and their results will count for greater points during their assessment for promotion and other benefits.

All the DISCOs are further directed to ensure proper briefing of consumers during open katcheris by the respective Superintending Engineers, XEN and SDOs. All the DISCOs will also run a comprehensive awareness campaign for educating the consumers regarding benefits of net-metering.

The meeting while emphasizing the importance of net-metering in order to tap the solar energy potential of the country, also underscored the need to extend all out facilitation to the consumers by the DISCOs. It was noted that although the rules and regulation for net-metering are adequate however the practical steps taken by DISCOs are not enough to promote it in order to fully and optimally utilize the potential. It was further directed to  strictly  monitor all targets in this regard.

Earlier the meeting was informed that a total of around 900MW solar panels have been imported in the country. There are 1190 electricity consumers with a cumulative capacity of 26MW who have installed net-metering so far.
