 Plant Performance Evaluation

SECI has laid down certain solar generation parameters that the systems
set up by the solar companies have to comply with. To ensure compliance,
SECI has taken Performance Bank Guarantees (PBG) from these solar
companies and has linked subsidy disbursement with actual generation from the
project. The parameters would ensure that the customer gets the most returns
and benefits when they install a rooftop solar power plant.

The following parameters must be complied with:

The solar company shall be required to meet
minimum guaranteed generation with Performance Ratio (PR) at the time of
commissioning and related Capacity Utilization Factor (CUF) as per
the GHI levels of the location during the O&M period.

PR should be shown minimum of 75% at the
time of inspection
for initial commissioning acceptance to qualify for
release of 30% subsidy.

Minimum CUF of 15% to be maintained for a period of 5
years is one of the conditions for release of PBG. The solar company should
send the periodic plant output details to SECI for ensuring the CUF. The PR
will be measured at Inverter output level during peak radiation conditions
