The Madhya Pradesh Madhya Kshetra Distribution Company Limited (MPMKDCL) is one of the distribution licensees in India which has suo motu initiated the deployment of grid-connected rooftop solar power plants. In recent past, through the support of the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE), Government of India and the German Development Cooperation, MPMKDCL has cumulatively implemented 5 MW rooftop solar power plants in Bhopal, Jabalpur, and Indore to solarize the Government buildings of the state. Further, the Government of Madhya Pradesh has desired MPMKDCL to support the installation of 10 MW additional rooftop solar plants in the state. Accordingly, following the request from MPMKDCL, MNRE has sanctioned 10 MW capacity to the Distribution Licensee and desired the German Development Cooperation to extend its support and also to encourage other Distribution Licensees of the States.
In this effort, TERI is providing consultancy services to the German Development Cooperation for supporting the implementation of the rooftop solar power plants in MPMKDCL network.
