New Delhi, May 27: United States Ambassador Mr. Richard R Verma and Secretary, Ministry of New & Renewable Energy, Dr. Upendra Tripathy announced Hyderabad-based Shri Shakti Alternative Energy Limited as one of the winners of the PACEsetter Fund’s 1st Round of funding. PACEsetter, acronym for Program for Advancement of Clean Energy, is a joint initiative of Govt of India and US State Department and is managed by Indo US Science and Technology Forum. These grant awards are given to scale up projects that hold significant promise for India’s development through the use of solar and other renewable sources of energy.

dvsk speechShri Shakti Alternative Energy Ltd (SSAEL) intends to scale up the innovative program launched by the Govt of Rajasthan’s Horticulture Department which involves creation of water harvesting structures, recharging ground water, pumping with solar pumps and irrigating through drip. Some farmers' income levels increased four-fold and even young MBA graduates were inspired to take up farming. SSAEL is offering an innovative cloud-based platform that tracks the performance of Solar Pumps and remote Solar PV Plants through data loggers and GSM-SMS technology.

The award envisages setting up pilot demonstration projects in Rajasthan and Chattisgarh for 400 solar pumps and 100 solar PV plants on a single platform that tracks both solar pumps and off-grid power plants. This mechanism of monitoring crop cultivation, yields and ground water levels alongside power generation holds the potential to radically improve agri-livelihoods and local economy. GIS and visualization on maps is planned along with supporting linkage to Aadhar Card and Soil Health Card for a strongly-knit program management during scale up.

Mr DV Satya Kumar, Managing Director Shri Shakti Alternative Energy Ltd, said “The system will record measurement of current and voltage from the solar array and will report the kWh generated, percent solar utilization, water flow and operational status. Such real-time performance monitoring was earlier viable only for large megawatt solar plants and to bring that to pumps and off-grid plants will dramatically improve the service levels and scale up of the program.”

Dr. Dinesh Kumar Goyal, IAS (Retd), former Additional Chief Secretary, Govt. of Rajasthan, and architect of the Rajasthan Solar Water Pumping Program, is the Team Leader of this project. Speaking on the occasion, Dr Goyal said “The system obtains feedback from farmers on the service quality through SMS soon after a service call. Instant report generation is possible state wise, district wise or manufacturer wise, in the form of charts and customizable reports.”

 Remote Performance Monitoring & Outsourced Service Management of Solar Pumps and Off-grid Solar PV Plants


pace setter for webfin


Remote Monitoring & Outsourced Service Management of Solar Pumps and Off-grid Solar PV Plants which has been selected for an Award under the first call of the PACEsetter Fund which is part of the PACEsetter program under IUSSTF, will be done through a cloud-based online portal with pilot demonstration projects in Rajasthan, Chhattisgarh and AP States in India and has the potential to be a game-changer in monitoring and evaluation (M&E) of the off-grid solar projects and in highlighting that M&E aspect is critical aspect in the solar pumping program management.This is especially relevant in view of the huge target of 3 million solar pumps by 2022 announced by the Government and current installed base is less than 100,000 pumps.

We are hopeful that with our pilots in Rajasthan and Chattisgarh, under PACEsetter program, we will enable the State Agencies to have better monitoring, control and a feedback mechanism to achieve their program objectives and subsequently scale up at national level.

Performance Monitoring

  • Performance monitoring and O&M – Key enablers to help MNRE achieve its target of 1 million pumps by 2022.
  • Real time data and performance reports for stakeholders viz, State and Central Governments, OEMs, Installers, NABARD etc
  • Outsourced service management and prompt service to farmers
  • Reduced AT&C losses for State Discoms
  • Employment generation, Skill development and training of local technicians
  • Monitoring and control of scarce resources, leading to energy and water conservation
  • Better irrigation leads to better farming output, better rural economy.
  • Reduction in Green House Gas emissions
