Why Solar

Why Go Solar?

Whether your motivations for going solar are economic, environmental, or personal, this sizable list of solar power benefits will have something for everyone. Here are the topmost reasons why solar panels are good for your home, institute, non-profit, commercial complex or industry.

Solar power systems derive clean, pure energy from the sun. Installing solar panels on your home, industry, commercial complex or institute helps combat greenhouse gas emissions and reduces our collective dependence on fossil fuel. Traditional electricity is sourced from coal Not only are fossil fuels bad for the environment, they’re a finite resource. Limited availability creates a volatile market in which energy prices can skyrocket in a short period of time. Unlike the fossil fuels that still provide the bulk of India’s power supply, solar panels generate electricity with no air or carbon pollution, no ash or other waste products, and no inputs other than sunlight.

Given the low greenhouse gas emissions from solar power, increasing its adoption is an essential strategy in efforts to combat climate change at an individual and national level.

UR Energy customers can reduce their electric-power carbon footprint at a scale and pace that is not only consistent, but vastly accelerates India’s attainment of Sustainable-Clean Power goals. In fact, the typical UR Energy’s system starts delivering net carbon reductions in less than 1 year.

Beyond installing clean energy systems, our company has made progress in a number of environmental and social categories, such as combating climate change, creating a safe workplace, and improving energy access for off-grid communities. Learn more about our environmental and social impact:

Solar PV Basics

What is a Solar PV (Photovoltaic)?

Solar PV cell is the basic building block of a PV system. It consists of semiconductor material that absorbs sunlight to generate electricity through a phenomenon called “photoelectric effect”.  Only sunlight of a certain wavelength can effectively generate electricity. Although a solar PV can generate electricity on a cloudy day, but it is not as effective as it is on a sunny day.

A basic PV cell produces a very small amount of electricity and multiple of them are connected together to form a Solar PV module that can generate 10 W to 300 W output. If more electricity is required, the multiple such PV modules have to be installed in an array.

Multiple kinds of materials are used to create a solar cell and the efficiency of solar cell depends on the same. The efficiency of a solar cell is defined as its capability to convert a certain amount of sunlight into electricity. Solar cells available in the market are of various efficiencies: 4%, 8%, 12%, 14% and 16%. The size of a Solar PV module required will depend on output and efficiencies.

What is Rooftop Solar?

A solar PV system mounted on a rooftop of a building – residential or commercial is a mini power plant as opposed to large-scale power generation projects. It converts solar energy into electricity to meet the power requirement of the building and feed additional power generation into the grid. They fall under two brackets: commercial and residential.

Although anyone can install a rooftop solar system, the size of the installation varies significantly varies depending on the availability of space, amount of electricity consumed by the end user, and the ability or willingness of the owner to invest the capital required.

ON a theoretically basis a 1 kW plant can generate up to 4.5 units of electricity a day, enough to power three fans, seven tube lights and a cooler for four to five hours.

The government has set itself a target of 100 GW of solar power by 2022, of which 60 GW is to come from utilities and 40 GW from rooftop solar installations. While the 60 GW target seems achievable, the country is lagging behind on the target set for rooftop solar.

What are the benefits?

Rooftop solar provides companies and residential areas the option of an alternative source of electricity to that provided by the grid. While the main benefit of this is to the environment, since it reduces the dependence on fossil-fuel generated electricity, solar power can also augment the grid supply in places where it is erratic. Rooftop solar also has the great benefit of being able to provide electricity to those areas that are not yet connected to the grid — remote locations and areas where the terrain makes it difficult to set up power stations and lay power lines. Some of the technical benefits are:

       • The roof /terrace space of the building is put to productive use.
       • It lowers the transmission and distribution losses.
       • Improves grid voltages at the tail-end and reduces system congestion.
       • The distribution network is used as a source of storage through net metering which reduce losses.
       • DISCOSM/utilities can efficiently manage the daytime peak loads.
       • The renewable purchase obligations (RPOs) of obligated entities are met, which are targeted at 8% of electricity consumption
       • Minimal technical losses as power consumption and generation are collocated.
       • Low gestation period.
       • It is estimated that annually about 60 million tonnes of CO2 r over the system life cycle is reduced providing ecological security.
       • Provides long-term energy security.

Why Go for Solar Rooftop Systems

  1. First and foremost – by investing in a SolarPV Product now, you can hedge utility prices – fix electricity rate @ Rs. 2.20/- per kWh for 25 years. With a solar panel system, you’ll generate free power for your system’s entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don’t produce 100 percent of the energy you consume, solar will reduce your utility bills and you’ll still save a lot of money.
  2. The cost of solar power generation is drastically reducing so will your electricity bills, as it is prepared after adjusting import and export of power.
  3. If you’re a in a business or homeowner with fluctuating cash flow, going solaralso helps you better forecast and manage your expenses.
  4. Improving the environment and cutting energy costs are the most common.
  5. Many people are aware that solar is a great home efficiency upgrade and are eager to reduce their carbon footprint while also improving property value.
  6. They provide a great return on your investment almost about 25 to 40 per cent for residential and 30 to 50 per cent depending on project size and geographical area.
  7. Almost zero maintenance, fuel-free and above all is Affordable and  reliable
  8. Easy to install and requires simple wiring system.
  9. MNRE, GOI provides 30% subsidy on installation of Rooftop solar power plants in domestic sector and non- profit making institutions.
  10. Reduction in payback period after availing Generation Based Incentive (GBI).
