A: Solar energy is simply energy provided by the sun. This energy is in the form of solar radiation, which makes the production of solar electricity possible. Electricity can be produced directly from photovoltaic, PV, cells.
Solar energy is the cleanest and most abundant renewable energy source available and India has some of the richest solar resources in the world. Modern technology can harness this energy for a variety of uses.
A:Rooftop solar PV systems are of 2 types:
Grid-tied – These rooftop systems are primarily designed to supply the generated power to the grid and also power the load. These systems will NOT generate power during a power failure as the inverter shuts down the system to stop sending power into the grid and avoids the risk of electrocuting utility personnel who are working to repair the grid.
Off-grid (Stand Alone)– This system does not work with the grid and is designed to work only with a battery backup or diesel generator in off-grid applications. The difference between the systems lies in the kind of inverter used, and the inclusion of batteries.
A:The cost of your solar investment will vary greatly depending on the size of the system, your location and available incentives. To find out what a S’unlimited system will do to your electric bill, get your quotation..(CALCULATOR)
A:Solar panels are increasingly becoming a popular way to provide energy to Indian houses, due in large part to rising energy bills and carbon emissions. The newer solar panel models in the market are expected to have 25-30 year lifespans and warranties to protect them for at least half that time.
Solar panels does not have any moving parts, which is why there`s not a whole lot of maintenance to take care of. However, cleaning is one aspect of solar panel maintenance.
A:For rooftop solar power plants however, area is a significant constraints in most cases, for both residential and commercial rooftop solar power plants. The extent of roof area required by a solar PV plant is dependent on two factors Shade-free roof area Panel efficiency. Approximately Rooftop Solar PV plants require 100-130 Sq.ft (10-13 sq.m) of shade-free roof area per kW of plant capacity. Shadow free space is important because shadows falling on the panels reduce power output.
A: Sun provides a tremendous resource for generating clean and sustainable electricity without toxic pollution or global warming emissions. Solar energy systems offer significant environmental benefits in comparison to the conventional energy sources, thus they greatly contribute to the sustainable development of human activities.
A:Solar energy is a resource that is not only sustainable for energy consumption, it is indefinitely renewable (at least until the sun runs out in billions of years). Solar power can be used to generate electricity, it is also used in relatively simple technology to heat water (solar water heaters). The use of skylights in home construction can also greatly reduce energy expenditure required to light rooms in a homes interior during the day.
Here are some of the advantages of solar energy.
-Lower utility bill
-Low maintenance cost
-Can be used in remote locations
-Long life up to 25 years
-Increase property value
