Frequently asked Questions(FAQs)

When a solar energy system is installed on your residence, you can protect yourself from the ever-increasing electricity rates and save money on those electricity bills. The amount saved depends on the solar policies and utility rates in your area. Investing in solar energy is a smart investment decision regardless of your location.

Using solar energy can have a positive impact on the environment. It reduces the greenhouse gas emissions which contributes to climate change and emits fewer air pollutants like Sulphur dioxide and particulate matter which can lead to future health problems.

The solar energy produced by the panels is dependent on the sunlight available at your location. If the weather is cloudy, your solar panels will produce less energy and no energy at all in the night. Solar is still an investment even if you live in a cloudy city because of its high electricity and financial benefits.

Solar panel systems require little to no maintenance for 25-35 years as they are made of durable tempered glass. In most instances, you don’t even require regular cleaning of solar panels. If something happens to the solar panels, the equipment provided by the manufacturers come with a warranty period which varies from company to company.

The solar power systems which include solar batteries are expensive. For home users however, batteries are not required. The grid will power your system and all the excess power goes back into the grid. You can even draw more electricity from the grid if and when required.

The increase in the solar power system depends on your roof space and inverter size. If there is additional roof space for the panels and additional capacity available in the inverter, you can increase the size of the system. Another option can be of adding a second solar panel system to your roof However, it depends on the state’s regulations on the system size limit which can be installed

There are some inverters that can provide power backup in the case of a blackout situation when paired with the battery. Normal inverters will shut off in the event of a blackout. This is done to prevent electricity repair people from being injured by your panel sending the power back to the grid.

Checking the performance of the solar power system is easy. Mostly inverters come with a built-in display which tells how much power the system is able to generate. Some even tell you how the system has been performing over time. Even we can monitor the performance of the solar inverter through web application on your mobile

Checking the utility electricity bill is the easiest way to find out how much you need to pay for the electricity. You can even contact your solar panel provider to guide you in your electricity bill.

The time taken to install the system usually depends on the size of the system. The bigger the system, the longer it takes to install. For instance, installing a 5kW system takes 3-5 hours.

The waiting time varies from state to state. When the booking is approved by the state, the installation gets processed

The roof space requirement depends on the size of the system that is supposed to be installed. A small system (1.5kW) requires 12m² of roof space. The north facing part of the roof is ideal for setting up the system. The solar power system is flexible and modular and can be adjusted and set up according to the roof.

When a solar energy system is installed on your residence, you can protect yourself from the ever-increasing electricity rates and save money on those electricity bills. The amount saved depends on the solar policies and utility rates in your area. Investing in solar energy is a smart investment decision regardless of your location.

The system called net metering utilizes credit solar energy system owners for electricity produced by the solar panels. With this, you only pay for electricity generated other than that produced by the solar panels.

Both the State and Central Government provide 2 forms of assistance when we install a solar system. These are-

  1. A rebate when you purchase the solar panel system, which comes off the price of the system.
  2. The purchase of the power which we don’t use during the day

The energy provider will buy back all the energy you do not use from the solar panels.

We do not require a planning approval currently to install the panels on your roof.

That doesn’t matter. The solar power systems can easily be installed on those roofs which are facing anywhere from due east to due west. However, north-facing roofs are best for production of solar energy.

The size of the system depends on several factors. These include:

  • How many panels can fit on your roof?
  • How much is your budget?
  • Your needs. A whole bill can be covered by a smaller system bill.
  • Your future plans. If you are planning to start a family or staying in that house for a long term.
  • 1.5kW – 3-4 hours
  • 3kW – 1 day
  • 5kW – 1 to 2 days
