NTPC arm commissions 1 MW rooftop solar plant at IIT Jodhpur


NTPC Vidyut Vyapar Nigam Ltd (NVVN), an arm of NTPC, has commissioned its first rooftop solar photovoltaic project at IIT Jodhpur, Rajasthan.

The 1 MW grid-connected solar project has been implemented by NVVN under the RESCO model, with a power purchase agreement duration of 25 years. 

Under the RESCO model, a renewable energy service company (which provides energy to consumers from renewable energy sources) designs, builds, funds, and operates the entire solar power plant (roof or ground-mounted). The consumer pays the developer against assured monthly unit generation per kW and DISCOM adjusts generated units in the consumer’s electricity bill.

The project is set up on the roofs of 14 buildings inside the IIT campus. 

The rooftop project is expected to generate around 14.9 lakh units per annum and will meet 15% of the electricity requirement of IIT Jodhpur. The project will help offset carbon dioxide emissions of 1,060 tonnes per year.
