The maximum permissible installed capacity of the above-mentioned technologies for the SSDG Feed-in Tariff Project has been set to 50 kW per customer.The maximum projected capacity (2 Megawatt) has been attained and the CEB will no longer accept any new application for further details from potential producers.
This project, announced in the 2018/19 Budget Speech, aims to promote renewable energy by allowing residential customers (who consume up to 200 kWh per month, and are in tariff categories 110, 120 and 140) to produce their own electricity from renewable energy sources. Click here for more
This new CEB MSDG RE Scheme has been prepared in response to the growing interest for the setting up of small-scale and medium-scale solar photovoltaic (PV) renewable energy (RE) projects.
The aim of this Scheme is to interconnect a total of 10 MW MSDG RE projects. Consideration will also be given to entertain small-scale distributed generation (SSDG) sized solar PV projects under this Scheme Click here for more
MEDIUM SCALE DISTRIBUTED GENERATION (MSDG) PROJECT
In 2010, the Central Electricity Board (CEB), in collaboration with the Ministry of Energy and Public Utilities, opened up the access to the national electricity grid through the launching of the Small Scale Distributed Generation (SSDG) project.
The SSDG project, however, only caters for low voltage connected renewable energy systems, with capacities of less than 50 kW. This 50 kW technical limit was set following a consultancy exercise funded by the UNDP. For renewable energy projects with capacities of greater than 50 kW, they have to be connected to the medium voltage network (22kV) and, accordingly, they do not fall within the ambit of the SSDG Grid Code.
The maximum permissible installed capacity per customer for MSDG
projects has been set to 2 MW. As for the total capacity of MSDGs that can be installed on a given 22 kV distribution feeder, they are detailed in the respective Grid Codes. Click here for more
THE CEB PUBLIC SECTOR ENTITIES RE SCHEME
The CEB Public Sector Entities RE Scheme is another action initiated by CEB to implement the measure “towards a clean and sustainable environment” announced in the Budget Speech 2019-2020.
Through this Scheme, CEB will integrate into the grid Small-Scale Distributed Generation (SSDG) and Medium-Scale Distributed Generation (MSDG) solar photovoltaic (PV) projects set up by Public Sector Entities. The Public Sector Entities includes Statutory Bodies and government-owned entities. Click here for more
THE CEB SMART CITY RENEWABLE ENERGY
The CEB Smart City RE Scheme is an initiative which will enable implementing an important feature of the Smart City Scheme promoted by Government.
The Smart City Guidelines, issued by the Economic Development Board, provides that “… a smart city project should be able to generate its own energy requirements through eco-friendly mechanisms such as solar plant…” . Click here for more
