Study of Rooftop Solar PV system in India

Authors(2) :-Sonam Dubey, Pushpendra Kushwaha

With the rapid increase in the demand of electrical power and shortage of present energy resources, Indian power sector is facing unprecedented challenge. Providing energy security and energy independence to billion plus population is also on the government agenda. It has been established that to meet power demand, India needs to develop a basket of energy from naturally abundant resources. Since, solar energy is extensively available across the country. Thus, utilizing solar energy is a logical choice. In recent years, Solar Energy has been increasingly used to generated power .The use of solar energy is attractive for rooftop solar system application also. Rooftop Solar systems are quite needing no fuel and require very little maintenance. PV systems have an added advantage of reliable power, flexibility and quick installation. Hence, roof mounted solar PV systems can play an important role in augmenting the power generation capacity. In the present work, the study of the Rooftop Solar PV System in India has been done. Solar home system and rooftop solar power system has been broadly discussed. Rooftop solar power PV system has been explained in the later sections along with it's connection and metering arrangements. The important part of the thesis is to have an idea about the total installed capacity in rooftop PV Power System in India and its nearby future in the Indian Market.
