Dilli Haat goes Green with 98% Solar Power

Overview
CleanMax Solar has commissioned a 140 kWp rooftop solar plant across six buildings at the food and
craft bazaar, Dilli Haat, in Pitampura, a popular tourist attraction in New Delhi. This project was a part
of the 2.5 MW order secured with the Delhi Government’s power generation arm, Indraprastha Power
Generation (IPGCL).
The project operates on a build-own-operate and maintain (BOOM) model. This means that CleanMax
will continue to operate and maintain the project over the PPA tenor and Dilli Haat will procure the
renewable power at a tari determined through the IPGCL tendering process.
The solar plant generates a total of 1.97 lakhs units of electricity through the year and meet’s a whopping
total of 50 percent of the power saving per unit which helps save INR 9.7 lakhs per annum.

Quick Facts

  • LocationNew Delhi
  • Capacity140.8 kWp
  • Type of systemSpread across multiple RCC roofs
  • Annual reduction in energy bills INR 9.7 lacs
  • Carbon dioxide abated186 tons of CO2 per annum
  • Date of commissioning3rd August 2017

Challenges
The disparity between the time of solar production and consumption
Dilli Haat being a venue of crafts, music, dance and cultural festivals experiences significant load
consumption in the evening and night time. Solar energy generation, however, is concentrated during
the middle of the day. This timing mismatch between generation and demand for electricity made it
critical to design the plant with energy banking system which will give the highest return.

Solution
Matching power supply and demand through Net metering
The timing mismatch between generation and demand for electricity meant the project could realize
the benefits from net metering. Net metering helps the Dilli Haat site and supports the DISCOM (the
state electricity distribution company) by providing solar power during the daytime when it’s needed in
the grid for nearby commercial and residential consumers .
Setting up net metering requires an application process and a feasibility analysis. The application is
submitted for approval to the local DISCOM and if it meets all requirements, a net metering connection
agreement is executed between the DISCOM and the customer. The process took only about a month
to complete for the Dilli Haat project, while typically it can take closer to 45 days.
Net metering enabled a larger solar capacity to be installed in a cost-eective way and helped to make
this renowned tourist destination green and sustainable.

Highlights

  • This project is part of the 2.5 MW order secured with the Delhi Government’s power generation arm,
    Indraprastha Power Generation (IPGCL).
  • The solar plant is expected to abate CO2 by 186 tons per annum.
  • The project helps the taxpayers save INR 9.7 lakhs per annum.)
