FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is a solar PV system?
A PV system consists of different components, including:
1. Solar Modules (group of solar cells)
2. Charge Controllers (to control the amount of charge going into the inverter)
3. Inverters (to convert the direct current (DC) of a PV system into alternating current (AC) for use in electrical appliances)
4. Batteries (to store any excess energy and use it when the PV system is not generating power) (for off-grid and hybrid systems only)
5. Racking (mounting hardware for the modules) etc.
How will going solar help me in my business?
Going solar will help you in the following ways:
1. Save Money: Solar power is often cheaper than your grid electricity. There is also no peak time “demand” charge associated with solar electricity. If you own the rooftop system, you will have access to free electricity after a certain time period – i.e. once the initial cost of the system is amortised.
2. Lock In Your Energy Costs: As fossil fuel stocks deplete, the costs of grid based electricity (generated using fossil fuels) will continue to rise. Going solar allows you to locked-in your energy costs for the lifetime of the system, typically a period of 25 years or more.
3. It Makes Perfect Business Sense: Depending on your electricity consumption and the incentives and/or rebates available in your area, your rooftop solar system could pay back for itself in as little as 4-5 years. Since the systems last for as long as 25-40 years, you will have access to free electricity for many years.
4. Improves Your Business’ Public Perception: Solar systems are an emissions free source of electricity generation. Therefore going solar also has huge environmental benefits. This will improve the perception of your business in the eyes of your customers, your employees, the community and even the government. It’s great CSR.
WHAT SHOULD BE THE SIZE OF MY INSTALLATION?
Size of a system depends on a lot of factors including your building's load profile, sanctioned load, type of system, etc. Don't worry, we will come by, assess everything and recommend the most optimum system size for you.
