Commercial Spaces, domestic sector and agriculture sector constitute major part of electricity usage in India today and has been growing rapidly. Rolling 'power-cuts' have become all too common in rural and urban India, forcing many commercial consumers and households to invest in expensive back-up power sources (diesel generators and/or battery-UPS systems). Utilization of solar-PV in a decentralized manner has the potential of addressing these sectors to a significant extent and help in overcoming India's electricity shortage. The decentralized energy generation and usage however poses new challenges and huge. The paper addresses these issues and presents the design and development approach that would make a difference. © 2013 IEEE.
