    Houses generating Rs 50 cr power annually in Malwa-Nimar region

    September 22, 2023 - Our Staff Reporter


      Rooftops of houses and other immovable properties are generating electricity valued at about Rs 50 crore annually in the Malwa-Nimar region. This electricity is produced by consumers through rooftop solar net meter installations. Indore serves as a prime example of how small efforts lead to substantial electricity savings and generation.

      Approximately 9,500 locations are now generating electricity under the rooftop solar net meter scheme for existing electricity consumers. Over the past year, these consumers have collectively generated electricity with a market value of approximately Rs 50 crore.

      In the Malwa region, electricity is being generated at around 8,500 locations. In the four districts of Nimar, there are 1,000 places where solar panel units have been installed to generate electricity under the rooftop solar net meter scheme. Net meters are instrumental in connecting these premises and rooftops to the grid.

      The highest concentration of electricity generation, around 5,890 locations, is in areas like Indore's urban limits, the super corridor, and bypass areas. Following this, Ujjain district has 1,225 locations, Dhar district has 500 locations, Ratlam district has 440 locations, and Khargone district has 350 locations generating solar power. Additionally, in various other districts, solar panels are being used to generate electricity at 30 to 250 locations. In the past year alone, more than six crore units of electricity have been generated from these complexes and rooftops.

      Benefits of solar energy production include significant reductions in current electricity bills for homes and premises, quick cost recovery for the panels within one to four years, increased potential for reducing carbon emissions, and a decrease in pollution as coal usage declines.

      Monthly solar power production figures

      * Around 15.50 lakh units in and around Indore city

      * 4 lakh units in Ujjain district

      * 1.75 lakh units in Khargone district

      * 1.50 lakh units in Ratlam district

      * 1.10 lakh units in Dewas District
