Renewable Sustainable Energy – Solar

Originally developed for energy requirement for orbiting earth satellite – Solar Power – have expanded in recent years for our domestic and industrial needs. Solar power is produced by collecting sunlight and converting it into electricity. This is done by using solar panels, which are large flat panels made up of many individual solar cells. It is most often used in remote locations, although it is becoming more popular in urban areas as well.

Rooftops can be of two types

Captive - The roof owner can partly or wholly own the solar infrastructure. Under various agreement types, the rooftop owner agrees to utilize the energy generated through the solar power plant system for his own personal /commercial use. This ensures reduced electricity bill and the cost of investment is covered in the early stages.

Sale through third party - The roof owner can also agree to sell the energy generated on his rooftop to the local energy utility provider. For this, power purchase agreements are made and payments are made to the electricity generator based on the REC credits (no of units of electricity fed into the utility).

Rooftop is the future of Solar

India has set a very ambitious target for rooftop solar and with NET Metering coming into effect, the parity has been reached by more than 6 states. State Governments are pushing the required policies ahead in their own states as well, and solar rooftop is poised to grow exponentially.

With solar roof top there are multiple benefits available like no land requirement, government subsidies, tax benefits & zero running costs. Savings through Negligible transmission losses add to the top line.

Rooftop Solar Systems

Unlike fossil fuels that still provide the bulk of power supply in the country, solar panels generate electricity with no air or carbon pollution, no ash or other waste products, and no inputs other than sunlight.
