Solar power is the natural resource of energy generated through sunlight, conversion of energy from sunlight into electricity using Photovoltaics cells. Today, when Pollution is increasing every minute and our resources of oil & coal are exhausting day by day, it becomes our responsibility to find the new natural resources from where we can generate electricity and power to run everything we required. Solar power is best and cheapest way to get electricity and power supply.
Panchmukhi services can do installation & commissioning of power plants for you to meet your power needs by the help of renewable source of energy. We can help you in installation of 1KW to 500KW power plant systems.
Indian govt. is very much focused towards generating electricity through Solar energy. Solar power plant industry is one of the fastest growing industry in India. India’s total solar installed capacity was approx. 36 GW in November 2020 and Targeting to achieve 100GW by 2022 with US$100 billion investment target.
The International Solar Alliance (ISA), proposed by India as a founder member, is headquartered in India. India has also put forward the concept of “One Sun One World one Grid” and “World Solar Bank” to harness abundant solar power on global scale
SOLAR POWER UTILIZATION IN INDIA
With about 300 clear/sunny days in a year, the total solar energy incidence on India’s land area is approx 5000 trillion kilowatt-hours (kwh) per year (or 5 EWh/yr) at present.The solar energy available in a year exceeds the possible energy output of all fossil fuel energy reserves in India. The per day average from solar-power-plant generation capacity in India is 0.20 KWH per m2 of used land area, which is equivalent to 1400-1800 peak(rated) capacity operating hours in a year with available, commercially-proven technology, state with the highest installed solar-power capacity in India.
BENEFITS OF SOLAR ENERGY
Cost Efficient Energy
Reduces the Operating Costs
Save the Environment
Solar is a secure investment
SOLAR POWER FOR RESIDENTIAL/DOMESTIC PURPOSE
There are some important points which are essential to check before installing Solar power plant for any residential building.
The Size Of The Building
Number Of People Living In
Star Rating Of The Appliances
Number Of Appliances
Many Other Factors;
Befor installation, Electricity consumption (Bill) should be checked and analysed with number of units consumed in a specific duration. Factors like weather and seasons are also important before decision of installation.It is highly recommended to see a consultant before deciding which solar system should be installed for home. Here are some approx sizes of the system and its costs. These values are on approximate basis and may vary for every individual household
1KW for 2-3 People/members
2 KW for 3-5 People/members
3KW for 5-8 People/members
5KW for 10-12 People/members
SOLAR PLANT TYPES FOR RESIDENTIAL/DOMESTIC
Main Benefit of installing a solar power plant on any rooftop is that it can generate power consistently while the sun is shining brightly and directly on the roof. It will generate the power much more than the power your home will use during this period of day. Also you can reduce your cost by transferring the excess power generated to your local power supplier company.
There are 3 types of solar power systems, suggested for domestic :
- ON GRID SYSTEM – The widely used system, which connects the solar power system to the electric grid and also allows owners to use both for personal use – the grid’s electricity as well as from solar power.
- OFFGRID SYSTEM – Here, the power system is not connected to the electricity grid. It uses batteries that keep a balance between shortfall and excesses in generation and usage of electricity. To avoid any inconvenience of users, when the solar panels couldn’t generate electricity or the batteries are discharged, an electric generator can be added, to the system.
- HYBRID SYSTEM – It is a combination of both, it combines grid connection as well as provide you storage capacity for your home, instead of transferring the excess electricity back to the grid, it allows you to save the power for peak days when demand is high and production is low. As the electricity prices are increasing day by day. The most important benefit of solar power is that it gives you choices and provides you option of dealing with the high cost of electricity.
How Solar System Works
Step-1 : The solar panels convert sunlight into electric energy, which is Direct Current (DC). This current is then sent to an inverter.
Step-2 : The inverter converts this DC to Alternating Current (AC) since households are only equipped to use AC. The grid tied inverter additionally regulates the amount and voltage of electricity fed to the household since all the power generated is mostly much more than a home needs or can handle.
Step-3 : This ‘converted’ power supply is then used by homes through the main electricity distribution panel. Your home now has access to clean and green electricity, which makes you a contributor towards a cleaner and more sustainable environment.
