Solar Photovoltaic (PV) System
Solar roof-top PV system installation is affordable and helps reduce your electricity bill considerably. This reduces our dependency on the grid supply and contributes in reducing frequent power outages. It is a Greener, Cleaner and Cheaper approach to meet our increasing electricity requirements. Solar technology is sustainable and has long life with zero fuel costs.
Grid-tie PV System
In Grid-tie Solar PV Systems, the PV system is connected to the utility source or the electricity service provider.
During the day, when electricity is generated by the PV System, it is utilized for the in-house usage and any surplus electricity generated
is fed to the grid. A Net Meter is used to measure the exported electricity. During evenings, when the solar electricity is not generated, the power is drawn from the grid.
The advantage of Grid-tie system is that the costly battery bank setup is avoided thus reducing the cost of installation.
For example: A Consumer imports during a billing cycle 900 kWh (units) and exports 500 kWh. The electricity bill will be for 400 kWh.
- Reduces your EB bills drastically
- Pay only for the difference between imported and exported energy
- Helps you in ensuring that you are below the 4th slab rate
- From a consumer turn into a supplier
- Most suitable for areas with rare power cuts
Environmental benefitsBy installing a 1 kW Solar PV System
- You are mitigating 30.75 tonnes carbon dioxide emissions.
- Your installation is equivalent to planting 49 teak trees over the lifetime.
Off-grid PV System
In an Off-grid PV system, Net Meter is not used and the PV System cannot export electricity to the grid. An array of batteries is frequently used to provide back-up power during the evenings/night when solar power is not available. This system is most suitable for places with frequent power cuts.
