Taking the lead in this regard KESCO (Kanpur Electric Supply Company) has provided the facility of net metering to a 200 kWp rooftop solar PV power plant installed by Ujaas Energy Limited on the roof of Kanpur Plastipacks Limited in Dada Nagar industrial area. With the support of UPNEDA and prompt initiative by Managing Director KESCO Smt. Selva Kumari J, IAS and her team a feasibility study was conducted on the installation and after satisfactory study the bi-directional meters were installed at this installation on 8th of May 2015.
