Can a project get points if the renewable energy generated on site is being supplied to the grid?


A project has installed on-site Solar PV which generates energy equivalent to 100% of its total energy requirement. However, this energy is directed to the grid and building is fed by grid separately. Can a narrative explaining this (along with total energy generated by Solar PV Scan simulation sheet) be used to fetch all renewable energy points under criterion 18 (GRIHA Version 3) with appropriate calculations?


Yes. The project may decide to use the energy generated by on-site solar PV for any purpose that they want or may feed it into the grid. The project will achieve all points as far as they have data to prove that the energy generated by the PV is equivalent to the energy consumed by the project for lighting and air-conditioning as per the clause.
