Grid Connected Rooftop Solar power Plant

Grid Connected Rooftop Solar power Plant Installation is the new found technology to reduce electric bills up to 90% for next 25 years minimum.  Government of India, Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE) through Jawahar Lal Nehru National Solar Mission (JNNSM) provides solar subsidy and other incentives to motivate people to go green go solar.

Solar power is by far the Earth’s most available energy supply, simply able to offering many times the total current energy demand.  It is sufficient to supply all of the world’s electricity, by installing solar panels covering 4% of the world’s desert area.

Solar power is a predictably intermittent energy source, meaning that whilst solar power is not available at all times, we can find out with high proficiency and accuracy when it will and wont be available.

Solar power is the conversion of sunlight into electricity. Sunlight may be transformed instantly directly into electricity utilising photovoltaics (PV), or indirectly with concentrating solar power (CSP), which normally focuses the solar’s energy to boil water. Photovoltaics have been initially used to power small and medium-sized functions, from the calculator powered by a single solar cell to off-grid houses powered by a photovoltaic array.

The solely vital downside with solar power is upfront installation cost, though solar installation price has been lowering as a result of manufacturing at large scale as well as awareness. Developing international countries have began to construct solar power plants, changing other sources of energy technology.

Since solar power is intermittent, it should be mixed both with storage or other energy sources to provide steady power, though for residential users, institutions and industries, provision of net metering makes this clear to the patron.

One elementary distinction between renewable energy and non-renewable energy is that non-renewable assets may be bought as they’re consumed, whereas with renewable assets, you pay upfront cost for the subsequent twenty five years or so of energy.

What is a Grid Connected Rooftop Solar power Plant?

In Grid Connected Rooftop Solar power Plant, the DC power produced from Solar photovoltaic panel is transformed in to AC power using Solar Inverter / Power Conditioning Unit (PCU) / (String Inverter and it is provided to the load of the user.  Excess power if any, is fed to the main Grid of 220kv / 66kv/ 33kV/ 11kV three phase lines or of 440/ 220Volt three/ single phase line depending on the capacity of the system installed at residence / schools / colleges / institution/ commercial establishment or residential complex. These Grid Connected Rooftop Solar Power Plant (SPV) systems produce electricity during the day time which is consumed fully by powering captives loads and feed excess power to the grid as long as grid is available. In case, where solar power is not sufficient due to cloud cover etc. the captive loads are powered by drawing power from the main grid.
