Rajpur Sonarpur Municipality: Grid Connect Solar PV Rooftop Power Plant

Location: Sonarpur
Capacity: 10 KWp Cumulative
Department: Government body, Municipality office

Overview – 10 KWp Grid Connect Solar Rooftop Power Plant

SunShell power facilitated the 10 kWp solar rooftop power plant in Rajpur Sonarpur, notably the first solar plant under this municipality in West Bengal to get SPV (solar photovoltaic ) plant with net metering. The historical event witnessed the arrival of Hon. Minister of Power, WB, Sri Manish Gupta, who inaugurated the project. The project was executed with the utmost care and attention, which brought about huge media attention. It was published in leading newspapers like Ananda Bazar Patrika and was simultaneously telecasted by Kolkata TV in West Bengal.

 

Technical Details

The 10 kWp solar rooftop power plant was executed by SunShell Power equipped with a grid-connected inverter with net metering. The solar plant consists of 40 numbers of solar PV modules of 250 Wp each and two inverters of SMA-Zever 5kWp with a DC switch. SunShell assures system protection and reliability. Hence AJP with SPD type II 1000V 40kA on PV string fuse of 1000V 15A and ACDB with AC side SPD (surge protective device) equipped with LED indication and suitable side MCB have been introduced. Further proper termination system has been fitted at the LT side of 415V. In compliance with IE and BIS guidelines, dedicated earthing with lightning arrestors and proper protection have also been implemented to ensure maximum safety.

 

Benefits

In a tropical country like India that enjoys around 300 sunny days a year, the prospect of a solar rooftop power plant brings measurable energy efficiency impact and spells limitless potential. SunShell’s smart installation of 10 KWP Grid connected Rooftop Power Plant at Rajpur Sonarpur Municipality with its remote monitoring system ensures user-friendly usage and efficient and proper utilization of prior unused roof space. It not only caps electricity expenses but also stands as a viable eco-friendly choice that needs quick adaptation in the face of the global climate crisis that threatens humanity.

7.5 HP Solar Water Pumping System With Dual Axis Tracker & Sprinkler
SunShell powers integrated the 7.5 HP solar water pumping system in the Chitmahal area in the Coochbihar district. This system aims to lift water from the nearby river and distribute it to the 8 hectares of land through sprinklers. This project was a first of its kind and was closely monitored by the Chief Minister’s office. The whole structure used 24 numbers of 72 Cells 325Wp Poly-Crystalline Solar Panels with a dual-axis tracker, operated manually by a single person. The dual-axis tracker helps track the sun’s changing positions due to the earth’s rotation and revolution movements and, in turn, helps capture the maximum amount of sun’s energy to be used for the system. One axis is azimuth, which allows the solar panel to move left and right. The other axis is elevation and allows the panel to turn up and down.

6.6 KWp On-Grid Domestic Rooftop Solar PV Power Plant: First Domestic project under CESC
Dr. Rajen Kumar Pandey, a renowned doctor and renewable energy enthusiast were the first to introduce a domestic net metering system for his residential solar rooftop power plant under CESC. Net metering is a billing mechanism that credits solar energy system owners for the electricity they add to the grid. If a home is net-metered, the electricity meter will run backward to provide a credit against what electricity is consumed at night or other periods when the home's electricity use exceeds the system's output.
