The CPEX, OPEX(RESCO) and PPA are two models of buying solar energy. Here are what they mean and how they are different from each other:

CAPEX: CAPEX stands for Capital Expenditure. If you go solar under the CAPEX model, you are required to pay the total cost of the solar system upfront. This allows you to own the solar system and makes you eligible to avail the accelerated depreciation benefits.

OPEX/ RESCO/ PPA: OPEX or RESCO stands for Open Expenditure. If you go solar under this model, you essentially choose to not buy the solar system but the solar energy produced by the solar system. The solar system in this mode is installed and owned by the solar installer or a third party and you are required to sign a Power Purchase Agreement(PPA) of purchasing the electricity from the solar system at a specified rate for a certain number of years. These agreements are usually signed for 15~25 years.

Electricity is measured in kWh (Kilo Watt Hour). It is the amount of electricity consumed by an appliance in a specified period. For example, 100W bulb * running for 1 hour = 100Wh which is equal to 0.1 kWh (unit).
Your electricity bill mentions the kWh (Units) consumed by you in your billing cycle.


What is the difference between kW & kWp in relation to Solar PV systems?

KWp is the nameplate rating of Solar PV modules and kW is the actual power delivered to the load. For instance, a 0.3kWp (300Wp nameplate) module under ideal conditions (25 degrees C and 1000 watts per sq. metre radiation, etc.) will give an output of 0.3kW. However, in real life weather conditions, the output will be lower than the nameplate rating which is denoted in kW.

What is the difference between kW and kVA?

Both are units of power , kW is active power whereas kVA is the apparent power because only a certain portion of the available kVA can be utilized kVA=kW+kVAR. If you take a mug of coffee, you can see its two component coffee+ foam. Here the portion of coffee is active power(kW), foam is reactive power caused by certain electrical equipment, and coffee + foam is apparent power (kVA).

Net metering is a billing mechanism which allows you to sell excess (unconsumed) solar power generated by your solar system to the DISCOM. For example, if on a given day you generated 20 units from your solar system and consumed only 18 units, the balance 2 units will be sold to the DSICOM at a set tariff. This ensures that you maximize your savings from solar. Click here for more information.

The mechanism of net-metering can be availed only if your building mains is connected to the grid. Therefore it can only be installed with on-grid and hybrid solar systems. The availability of net-metering varies from state to state and depends on the solar policy of your state. For example, in the state of Rajasthan, the net-metering is only available to power consumers going solar under the residential category. For commercial and industrial consumers of the state the facility is available only above a certain sanctioned load.

Do I need to replace my existing meter for net metering?

Yes, you will need to get your meter replaced with a bidirectional energy meter as per the process of your local discom at a nominal charge. Typically your system installer will help you with the process.

No permits would be needed, if you are going to install off grid Solar PV system or grid connected system for captive (self) consumption. For net metering and gross metering system, certain permits and approvals are required.
For Net & Gross Metering:
1. Approval from DISCOM for grid connectivity.
2. CEIG(Chief electrical inspector to the government of state) approval for the capacity more than 10 KW(This capacity may vary from state to state).

Will my system installer assist me in getting the permits and approval?

Yes, the system installer will!
But it is better to discuss and finalize all of these things with the installer before signing the contract.

PV, short for Photovoltaic, derives its name from the process of converting light (‘photo’) directly into electricity (‘voltaic’). Simply put, a Solar PV system is a power station that generates electricity from sunlight.

The main components of a Solar PV system are:

  • Solar Panels or Modules: Solar panels consist of a group of small cells made from semiconductor material. When the sun’s light falls on the modules, it excites the electrons, thereby creating direct current (DC).
  • Solar Inverter: The DC electricity goes into an inverter that converts it into alternating current (AC). We use AC for running our household or office or factory equipment.
  • Storage Battery (optional): The best use of solar energy is to consume it while it is being generated. If the requirement is to store this power and consume it in the non-sunny hours, then solar energy can be stored in batteries for later consumption.
What is the difference between Solar PV and Solar Thermal?

The majority of solar energy, coming to our earth through the sun rays, is in the form of ‘light’ and ‘heat’. A Solar PV system uses the ‘light’ energy and converts it into electricity, which can then be used to run electrical equipment or charge batteries. A Solar Thermal system uses the ‘heat’ energy of the sun where a solar collector captures this heat or thermal energy and uses it to heat water or air.

Which technology is suitable for me?

Both Solar PV and Solar Thermal are suitable for you. If you need to run electrical and electronic equipment like lights, fans, TVs, computers, etc., Solar PV is the right solution for you. However, if you require a solution for water heating in your bathrooms or kitchens or swimming pools or for space heating, drying, cooling, etc., a solar thermal is more suitable.
