General Q&A’s

Solar power is energy from the sun that is converted into thermal or electrical energy. Solar energy is the cleanest and most abundant renewable energy source available.
When light energy strikes the solar cell, electrons are knocked loose from the atoms in the semiconductor material. If electrical conductors are attached to the positive and negative sides, forming an electrical circuit, the electrons can be captured in the form of an electric current — that is, electricity.

Basically 3:
1. We are a professionally run company with a national reach and a complete solution provider. This means we will design, engineer and configure a solution for you to your exact electrical and financial needs. It means you will get every rupee of your money’s worth and there will be neither idle capacity nor any system tripping due to overload.
2. We manage the system we install and that means reliability. We don’t just say it, we insure it with money with our output guarantee that you receive with your system. If the system we install doesn’t perform, you don’t lose, we do and our insurance underwriters do.
3. We may not be the cheapest option but would surely be the one that offers you the highest electricity production throughout the year as well as the quickest payback.

Your home must have a roof or any place where panels can easily face sun rays without any obstruction or shadow..

With most off grid systems it is a good idea to have some back up. In the event of a sudden overcast for instance, when there may be a drop in energy output from the system, batteries will kick in to maintain the power output level. You may also need charged batteries during night for times of loadshedding. Ideally you may want to go for 2 hours backup and increase this if your experience indicates requirement for more.
Our on grid systems on the other hand do not require battery back up for continuous operation but still, for night time loadshedding hours, many customers choose to install 2 hours backup.

Solar panels need radiance and sunlight. During overcast hours the system may experience some drop in output. If yours is an on-grid system, then it will increase its draw from the grid. On the other hand, if yours is an off grid system, you will either need to reduce load or provide for back up batteries to make up for the electricity shortfall.
This depends mostly on the size of the system, site access, and the distance between the array(s) and the main service. Usually residential installations can be completed within a week or two.
All hardware is made for outdoor use and is made of either rust-proof, stainless or galvanized steel or aluminum.
Yes. If you’re planning work your roof in the next few months, it may make sense to move that up and install the PV system after any civil work on the roof is complete.
Spot repairs are easily accommodated as any since module is secured with only four 5/16″ hex bolts. Non-penetrating ballasted systems can also easily be moved to accommodate repairs.

Your solar PV System is designed according to the load of your house and your daytime usage of appliances and airconditioners. For example: if you have a load of 700 Watts you may need a system to produce 4.63 units per day. We will help you calculate your requirement and determine the size of your system that best suits your lifestyle and electrical needs.
What percentage of electricity will my system provide us.

During daytime it will charge your batteries also. The larger your battery bank, the larger the system you will need so it can charge batteries at the same time as it is powering your other appliances during daytime.

It depends on the panel size. Suppose some panels are of 100Watts so an appliance which runs on less than 100 Watts can easily run on that panel.
What happens if the battery is not fully charged or consumed?

Yes. Systems provided and installed by us are fully maintained free of cost for first year of operation and at a nominal charge for each subsequent year.
Yes. On grid systems are designed to do just that. You will only draw from the grid any shortfall that remains after the solar PV system has addressed the load requirement.

For PV system, warranty is as follows:
• 15 years warranty with 80% performance.
• 1 year warranty for inverter.
• 6 months warranty for battery.
• We are providing one year free maintenance.
• After one year, it will cost Rs 6,000 + Rs 1/ watt.

Yes, you can but then you have to invest in a large battery storage system or a generator for night time use. Not recommended.
It will take 5.52 hours for charging a single battery of 200Ah to run 250 watts load. Your battery bank will be designed to fully charge during daylight hours.

Economical Q&A’s

Yes, but with terms and conditions.
Solar PV systems are solid state technology, have no moving parts and require no maintenance beyond cleaning, which can typically be done with a garden hose or a bucket and cloth. Most systems should be cleaned 2-4 times a year, concentrated in the drier seasons. Systems in agricultural areas will likely require monthly cleaning. Inverters are also solid state and require little to no maintenance beyond regularly checking the cooling fan outlets and cleaning when necessary. Mounting hardware is either aluminum or stainless steel and is rust-proof.
Approximately Pkr 4 per kWhr over the lifetime of the system – 25 years. So even if utility rates go up next year, you have hedged yourself against those increases and your rate from solar would remain Rs 4!
Ask one of our solar experts to provide you a payback table. It is usually around 5 years; at present electricity prices.
Based on manufacturers’ in-field experience and reliability testing the expected life is about 25 years. PV modules are more reliable than just about any other capital investment for your home or business.
Cost is not fixed. It varies from small size system to large size system.
