Industries, institutes & households need continuous and regular access to power for various needs. Solar rooftop systems are designed to provide electricity in offices & homes with intermittent or no grid electricity. The solar rooftop system, being modular in construction, can be customized to generate and provide solutions based on your needs. The solar rooftop system can begin at about 100 watts, going up to a 100+ kilowatts. A typical 4-person semi-urban/urban home can have a good mix of solar power and grid power, balanced by choosing to install a 1 KW solar rooftop system. A 1 KW system can help save up to Rs 8,250 per year (compared to using grid electricity). When used as a power backup in grid-constrained locations, it saves fuel costs of up to Rs 56,000 per year compared to the equivalent use of a 1 KVA gasoline generator.
- A solar rooftop system is composed of a set of solar PV panels, mounted on the rooftop of a residential or commercial building, connected together to generate electricity by converting solar radiation into electrical energy.
- The electrical energy generated from the array of panels is transmitted to inverter, which converts DC output of solar module into utility grid electricity.
- For off grid systems, a battery bank stores power that cannot be utilised directly by the load. This will be used when requirement of load is more than what the solar PV is providing at a particular time or when power from solar energy is not available, thus reducing the consumption of power from grid and increased savings on your electricity bill.
