Site Selection

Step Sub-step DESCRIPTION
Details Activities undertaken Important factors to consider
SITE IDENTIFICATION AND PROJECT PRE-FEASIBILITY IDENTIFICATION OF SITE The first step in project design and development is the site identification. A list of land available for industrial use is published by the Karnataka Industrial Development Board in a notification titled ‘Identified regions for Industrial Development under Land Bank scheme’. The document enlisting land banks can be accessed here. If land from this list is not chosen the category of the land has to be checked with the Revenue Department of the State. Further, one of the key factor in identification of a suitable site is to obtain the consent of the present owner of that piece of land, to sell. Suitability of a place includes factors such as suitable irradiation, access to site and availability of evacuation infrastructure.  This step is undertaken in conjunction with other analysis such as solar radiation analysis, infrastructure analysis etc. A taluk level document enlisting solar irradiation data is available at this link. 1. Identify a suitable piece of land     2. Obtain consent from current owners                                                         3. Check the categorization of the land with the Revenue Department 1. The consent of the owner is integral at this stage                              2. The State’s solar policy is contemplating deemed conversion of land by reforming section 95 of the Land Reforms Act                                                                          3. Determination of the type of land; whether agricultural or other wise
SOLAR INSOLATION AND SHADOW ASSESSMENT It is recommended that for ascertaining accuracy of solar irradiation data, dedicated weather stations are erected at the site for local irradiation measurement and a minimum of 12 to 18 months of data is gathered for observation.
There are currently 6 solar radition resource assesment stations under the Natinal Institute of Wind Energy (NIWE). They are located at Mysore, Bellary, Chitradurga, Belgaum, Bijapur and Gulbarga. Data from these stations can be purchased by filling up this form.
The following has to be checked :        #Global Horizontal Solar Radiation
#Diffused Horizontal Solar Radiation
#Direct Normal Solar Radiation
#Wind Speed/Direction
#Rain Accumulation
#Air Temperature
#Atmospheric Pressure (SLP) and
#Relative Humidity.
Technical advice is suggested for this level.
POWER EVACUATION FEASIBILITY AND SITE ACCESSIBILITY The developer has  to consult and check on the interconnection voltage level with KPTCL/ Distribution Utility for the desired voltage level transmission corridor up to the project site. A project of less than 5 MW has to be connected at a voltage level of 11 kV and all power plants above 5 MW have to connect at voltage levels of 33/66/110/220 KV. A grid feasibility study is done to evaluate the evacuation capacity of existing transmission system.
The evacuation feasibility study involves the following steps:
#Nearest feasible substation for interconnection
#Identification of interconnection point
#Voltage level
#Feeders and Bay available in the substation
#Right of Way
The following are the steps in obtaining power evacuation approvals:
a) Application to KPTCL/ESCOM (Depending on the volatge levels)
b) Submission of Power Evacuation plan
c) Single line diagram
d) Details about Conductor, Line, GSS etc.
e) KPTCL/ESCOM will approve the evacuation plan
f) KPTCL/ESCOM will ask to deposit the prescribed fee
g) Bay allotment will be done by KPTCL/ESCOM, if available
h) Equipment Approval – Foundation etc. – Done by KPTCL/ESCOM
i) Survey, Estimation – KPTCL/ESCOM
j) SCADA Aprroval – SCDA, KPTCL
k) TAQC Inspection and Dispatch approval – KPTCL/ESCOM
l) PTCC Approval – BSNL PTCC Cell – 11kV, 33 kV – Bangalore, Double Circuit – Chennai
# The interconnection to the Sub station level has to be done at a specific voltage level                              # A transmission study has to be carried out to ensure that the nearest sub-station or the sub -station under consideration has adequate evacuation capacity to support the solar power plant being set up.
