net-metering in India

Net Metering policy for roof top PVs in various states in India Solar powered systems can be divided as: Grid connected solar power system. Stand alone Offgrid system. When solar energy production is in excess as compared to the load requirement at that moment, the excess energy we can be either stored in the batteries or can be sold back to the utility grid. This difference of energy can be tracked using a meter connected to your solar pv system. usually following two types metering systems are involved: Gross metering Net Metering  Net metering is an agreement that allows the solar PV system owner to sell excess solar energy to the utility company or buy deficit energy from the utility company using a meter to track this energy exchange. Advantages of Net Metering: The most important advantages of net metering are: 1. Financial benefit for the system owner Since the system owner is charged for the net energy consumed from the utility grid, the owner

Industrial Vocational Training for Engineering Students

INDUSTRIAL VOCATIONAL TRAINING FOR ENGINEERING STUDENTS VOCATIONAL TRAINING FOR ENGINEERING AND DIPLOMA STUDENTS Institute of Solar Technology is going to conduct four weeks / six weeks Summer /Industrial (Vocational) Training Program for Students of B.E./ B.Tech./Diploma in Engineering and M.B.A.from the month of June and July 2015.
