Why Solar

There are many reasons to opt for solar power solutions, but reducing energy costs, reasonable return on investment and environmental sustainability are the most common. Self-reliance, having your own endless source of power and in some cases potential tax benefits are also key reasons to invest in Solar Power Systems.

Whether your motivation for going Solar are economic, environmental, or personal, we have a list of reasons why this will benefit you and we are certain that many of these will be of interest to you.
 

No Electricity Bills !

Use Solar Energy to offset your electric bills.

By producing your own electricity you can offset your electric bills by opting for a Grid-tie or an Off-Grid Solar System.

 

 

 

 Tax Benefits

 The government offers Accelerated Depreciation for Solar Power Systems installed by companies.

 This facility can be used for tax planning for your organization.

 

 

Self Reliance

Reduce your reliance on the electricity grid by producing your own energy.

The net-metering and off-grid systems ensure that you are always free of electricity bills, whatever the tariff.

 

 

 

 

Free, Clean & Endless

Solar energy comes from our Sun and does not cost us anything !

It is free and inexhaustible !

It is the cleanest form of energy and has been utilized by the earth, to sustain life.

 

 

Increased property value

A Solar Power System has long term economic value and will therefore enhance property value.

Covering your rooftop with solar panels will also shade your roof and keep it cool! This will drastically reduce the air conditioning costs of the top floor of the building.

 

 

 

Reliability

Our Solar Power Systems have low maintenance and are extremely reliable and are backed by some of the longest warranties available in the world.

    - Solar panels come with typical manufacturing warranties of up to 10 years and also with performance warranties up to 25 years.

    - Inverters have typical manufacturing warranties of 5 years.

 

 

Cool Your Roof !

Covering your rooftop with solar panels will also shade your roof and keep it cool! This will drastically reduce the air conditioning costs of the top floor of the building.
 

WHAT ARE MY OPTIONS ?

There are 2 options :

  • On-Grid Solar Power Systems and
  • Off-Grid  Solar Power Systems
     

WHICH ONE  SHOULD I INSTALL?

It can be a difficult task to decide which system should be chosen , since both systems have their advantages and disadvantages.

For example a grid tied system is the most efficient, in converting solar energy and supplying it to the grid ( Electricity Board ); but it does not operate with batteries and therefore needs a separate UPS back-up.

Whereas, the Off Grid Solar System has batteries for storing Solar Energy, it also has higher installation and maintenance costs.

In the section below, we highlight some of the key differences between the two types of Solar Systems, to help the consumer make a choice.

 

So which is better ? 

The section below details some of the differences, to help the consumer make a choice.

 

  Grid Tied System Off Grid System
Main Difference
  • Also known as Grid-tied solar power, it is a solar PV system that supplies power to the electricity grid.  
  • Has NO Batteries. All the energy is directly sent to the grid. 
  • An Off-Grid Solar Power System is a stand-alone, solar powered UPS.  
  • The solar electricity produced is not sent to the grid but is stored in  Batteries to supply it back to the load when necessary.
Suitability
  • Ideal for locations where there are few power cuts during the day.  
  • For example - Urban Areas, District Capitals 
  • The system does not work when there is no power.  
  • When the sun goes down and Solar power is not available, electricity from the grid has to be used.
  • Ideal for places without reliable power. 
  • For example - Rural areas, Farm houses.  
  • The system works independent of the grid  since the solar power produced is stored in Batteries, which can be used at night.
Benefits
  • Offsets and reduces a customer's electricity expenses. 
  • Increase in Government Electricity Tariff does not affect consumer.
  • Less expensive than off-grid systems - as they do not require batteries to store energy. The Electrical Grid stores energy and acts as the backup. 
  • Lower maintenance costs compared to off-grid systems. 
  • Contributes to the environment by reducing the need for fossil fuel based power sources.
  • No power cuts, since the system is not dependent on the electricity grid.
  • Immune to increases in Electricity Tariff. 
  • No damage to electrical appliances due to voltage fluctuations - since the system is not connected to the grid.  
  • Battery maintenance is higher and will need replacement over time.  
  • Off-grid systems provide flexibility as they are expandable and the units are modular.
