Glimpse of Gujarat Solar Power Policy 2015

Its really good that various states in India are changing their power policies by giving weight-age to maximum use of solar power.

Here are a few important points of Gujarat Solar Power Policy 2015:

Salient Features:

Operative Period:

  • 13 August 2015 to 31 March 2020
  • Solar Power Generators (SPGs) installed and commissioned during the Operative Period shall become eligible for the benefits and incentives declared under this policy, for a period of 25 years from their date of commissioning or for the lifespan of the SPGs, whichever is earlier.

Installed Capacity:

  • The minimum size of the MW scale project shall be 1 MW and for the KW scale project shall be 1 KW.

Rooftop solar system with Net Metering:

  • Provision for residential and Government Consumers

1. Capacity – up to maximum of the 50% of the consumer’s sanction load.

2. Tariff- surplus energy generated and exported at the end of the billing cycle shall be purchased by the concerned DISCOM at the APPC rate of the year of SPG is commissioned.

  • Grid Integration

Project Capacity and Interconnection Specification

1 Kw to ≤ 6  ⇔  230V, 1 Ph, 50  Hz

1 Kw to < 100 Kw ⇔ 415 V, 3 Ph, 50 Hz

100 Kw to ≤ 4 MW ⇔ 11 Kv, 3 Ph, 50 Hz

For ≥ 4 MW ⇔66/132/220/400 KV, 3 Ph, 50 Hz

  • State Nodal Agency and process:


  1. Registration Process
  2. Facilitating approval of power evacuation plans etc.
  3. Respond to queries and problems of Developers.
  4. Accreditation and recommending the Solar Project for registering with Central Agency under REC mechanism.
