Solar Panels for Industrial Units Know How

With increasing awareness about the need to conserve our planet, the world is fast moving towards the “Go Green” revolution. Stakeholders and industries are slowly shifting towards ways to save energy.Also, in India, huge electricity bills are a major concern for industries. So, industries like textile, steel, chemical, cement, paper ceramic, etc are opting for solar power systems. Another reason why industries go for solar panels is that they provide an ROI within 4 to 5 years. And the solar panels for industrial units can be used for both on-grid and off-grid allowing the industries to use the panels at night as well. The high tariff rates and increasing demand for electricity necessitate the use of industrial solar panels.A massive 44.2% of the total electricity generated in India is used by the industries. Thus, it is one such sector that has high electricity demands. And during the peak working hours, the grid gets high loads. Thus, solar panel installation is one of the best ways to curb the loads as well as meet industrial energy needs. Types of Solar Panels   The three types of solar panels are:   Monocrystalline solar panels   Monocrystalline solar panels are made from about 40 of the monocrystalline solar cells. These solar cells are made using pure silicon. They provide the highest efficiency rates and thus are preferred for industrial uses.   Polycrystalline solar panel   Polycrystalline solar panels are made of silicon too. But polycrystalline cells are made when little fragments of silicon crystals are melted. They appear blue because of the way sunlight interacts with the material. Its usage is rapidly growing as they too have a good efficiency rate.   Thin-film Solar Panels   As the name suggests, thin-films solar panels are 350 times thinner than other silicon wafers. Another distinguishing

India recently experienced Cyclone Tautkae, one of the biggest for the Indian subcontinent in decades. The wind speeds were as high as 155-165 km per hour and gusting to 190km per hour damaging the western coast of the country. Buildings, trees and electric infrastructure got severely damaged. And in the midst of all this chaos, some Solar Power Plants as well! Both rooftop and Ground mounted Solar Power Plants. That brings us to an important question about the durability of the Solar Power Plants during such severe weather conditions. Experience has shown that solar power can survive most severe weather conditions and sometimes better than electricity sources. But solar systems can be damaged. Severe weather conditions can inflict damage, making the PV system to stop performing or not perform as designed.Components of the Solar Power Plants are tested for different weather conditions to make them durable to withstand severe weather conditions. From strong winds, rainfall, Cyclones,lightning, and various extreme weather events. Today’s solar panels are built to withstand severe climatic conditions and still are stand firm on your roof or ground area. If the Solar PV system has been-installed by an experienced Solar EPC company and has Solar Power Plant insurance, the chances of damage are minimal and Insurance Company covers the damage in case it happens. Let us understand some of the extreme weather conditions and how it affects the Solar Photovoltaic system: Cyclones Solar power systems are installed at all places receiving sufficient sunlight including Cyclone prone area. For a cyclone prone area, the mounting structure should be well-designed and certified and installation should be done as per laid standards.Many premium panels are rated to withstand wind upload pressure up to a wind speed of 345km per hr.

Ministry of Power Proposes Allowing Net Metering for Rooftop Solar up to 500 kW – Visol India

The Ministry of Power has published a draft amendment to Electricity Rules 2020, which is also known as Rights of Consumer, about the Net-Metering policy. As per these updates, now solar EPC companies are allowed to use a net-metering policy on, up to 500 kW or the permitted limit, which is lesser. Besides, EPC companies will use either net billing / gross metering or net feed-in policy for all capacities above 500 KW. Ministry of Power also allows stakeholders to submit their comments to the ministry till 30th April 2021. For the prosumers, who avail net-billing or net feed-in, in Draft Amendment stated that the Commissions may introduce time-of-the-day (ToD) tariffs which would incentivize prosumers to install energy storage for later use or can be fed into the grid during peak hours. Moreover with this, the DISCOM may also install a solar energy meter to measure gross solar energy generated from the grid-interactive rooftop photovoltaic system for renewable energy purchase obligation (RPO) credit. At the starting of this year, GOI set a bottom line for the net metering which is 10KW but later some state government further lowered it to 5 KW. This made the entire rooftop segment of the solar industry very unstable. This new policy has not been well received by the solar developers, especially from the state of Gujarat, Rajasthan, and Maharashtra a lot of counter-argument was received. Not only the developers but for solar owners were also not happy with this. This policy has increased the ROI and lowered the financial benefits. The Maharashtra Solar Sangathan wrote a letter to Mr. Nitin Gadkari informing how this new policy is going to crush the MSMEs. Seeing this, Minister of MSMEs Nitin Gadkari had to intervene and he shared the concerns of the clients to the Power Minister

Basic Difference Between Net Metering vs Gross Metering - Visol India - Solar Panel Installation Company

Basic Difference Between Net Metering vs Gross Metering – Visol India – Solar Panel Installation Company

Over the past year’s pandemic time, people are adopting solar more & more in India. The government has also taken a great initiative & set up many large utility-scale power plants in India. India has set a target of 175 GW solar energy by 2022, which includes 40 GW rooftop solar. So rooftop solar is a very important segment to reach the target. What is Rooftop Solar? In a rooftop solar system, solar panels are placed on top of roofs of the building like commercial, institutional or residential buildings. They capture the light energy emitted by the sun and convert it into electrical energy. This setup is completely independent & owned by a single or more person. In this system, there are two types of policy for the consumer who generate electricity from the rooftop solar PV system: 1. Net Metering 2. Gross Metering Net Metering The net-metering system helps solar consumers reduce their electricity bills. In net metering, when the solar system produces electricity, electricity first goes to the consumer’s home load, only then does the excess power go to the local power grid. When the load of the consumer’s house increases and more power is required, electricity is imported from the local power grid. In this process, the consumer uses a bi-directional meter for measuring the exported electricity to the local grid and the imported electricity from the local grid. At the end, when the power consumption bill is generated, if the exported electricity is more, then the consumer gets credits for the excess energy injected into the grid. This can be carried forward to the next month or reimbursed at a rate provided by the state authority. & if the imported electricity is more, then the consumer will pay the bill for the excess amount of consumed

How manufacturing Industries can reduce their cost of operations post Lockdown through Solar energy at zero cost???

COVID 19 pandemic and the subsequent Lockdown, now in its fourth version has the most unprecedented effect on the manufacturing sector in the recent times. India’s factory output contracted a record 16.7% in March 2020 against a rise of 4.62% in February due to all economic activities coming to a standstill. Adopting solar energy in the current scenario can be one of the unique cost reduction strategies for the manufacturing industries.  Most of the industrial roofs are unused and going for a Solar rooftop power plant can help them achieve around 30%-50% savings on electricity expenses along with a reduction in their carbon footprint. In the case of insufficient roof space, any ground space or offsite location can also be utilized. There are unique Finance models (OPEX Model) designed where a third party can invest for your solar power plant and the user has to pay only for the electricity consumed at a tariff which would be 30-50% lower than what the user is paying to the local electricity DISCOM.   For  FY20, industrial production contracted 0.7% against 3.8% expansion in FY19.  April data is expected to be worst as a result of complete lockdown. May is unlikely to be better either, even though there are signs of recovery with some the businesses starting their operations. The manufacturing industry, which contributes almost 20% of the GDP has been affected the most. Of this, 50% is contributed by the auto industry. Even before the lockdown, the auto industry was on a decline, with a reduction in sales by more than 15%. The unorganized industry will face a more severe situation. The uncertainty would impact smaller organizations with lower resilience due to reduced or no orders and profitability.   On an average, the Lockdown would affect the profitability of the companies to

Solar Climate Change

BE A CLIMATE CHANGE HERO !!!

If they say that the sky is the limit of solar energy, they’re not hyperbolic. In recent years, the cost of installing solar equipment has dramatically decreased, while the energy provided by these solar thermal panels has increased. Going green is not just an investment in the future of the world, but also a wise financial decision. As the environmental impact of our fossil fuel economy makes the need for renewable energy sources so strong, solar energy in the 21st century is becoming the cleanest, most efficient and cost-effective way to not only live but thrive.   “If you’re trying to save the world and your wallet, switching to solar energy is your best option.“   BENEFITS OF SOLAR UV RADIATION? Like all good things, moderate solar UV radiation is great. Exposure to a small amount of UV radiation can help human beings to promote vitamin D, but doctors often advise that direct exposure is limited to just minutes per day. Many solar panels do not actually use this source of radiation to a large extent. Most panels transform the majority of their energy to the visible light spectrum, which makes up about 43% of the total sunlight entering the planet. At present, UV radiation accounts for only 4% of our planet’s sunlight. COST BENEFITS OF SOLAR ENERGY? Depending on the specific state you live in, tax incentives, rebates for the energy company and other special programs can reduce your energy bill by more than 30 percent or in some cases it can go free after installing solar panels. The savings are expected to only grow in the coming years, as installation costs continue to plummet while the panels ‘ total watts output is climbing. Homeowners investing now will reap the benefit of technology developed and refined over several decades.

Important Tips Before Choosing Right Solar Panels

Solar energy provides customers numerous advantages, but as you are here, we believe you are already more than familiar with them. Since evaluating your choices, you now think about moving to renewable energy, but you are not sure how to pick the right boards. If we work in the right direction so far, you’re in the right place. Solar energy experts, we will provide you with four top tips to guide your decision making. Consider your costs Although cost is not the only factor that guides your choice of solar panel, it is fair to say that it is important to most people. None of us want to break the bank for clean energy purposes, and thankfully you don’t have to. Like any other sector, the solar industry is competitive and many options are available. Let’s use casinos online as a comparison tool. All you have to do is look here to see dozens of different offers, so you can always find something perfect for your budget. The same goes for solar panels, so shopping, comparing prices and not falling into the idea that you need to bankrupt yourself to be clean. Assess their energy efficiency Another thing to consider is how energy-efficient the panels you purchase are. Energy efficiency measures how much the obtained light is converted into electric energy, the higher the cost, the better. Higher values, though, continue to translate to higher prices, and the fact is that you just need to meet your personal energy needs. Don’t get in the trap of thinking that you must have a Ferrari to run a school–or a top-of – the-range bungalow. Find something that will provide you with more outputs, and you’re going to be good to go. Pay attention to the temperature coefficient In that vein, you will

What is the Potential of Solar Energy in Industries?

There is a vast potential for using solar energy equipment / systems in process water and other thermal industries. Presently, energy is mainly used for these applications through the use of fuel oil, which not only relies on imports, but also creates huge atmospheric emissions that threaten our planet. India consumes over 100 million tons of oil for different uses each year. About 40% of this is used in the industrial sector alone. In addition, 40-50 percent are in thermal form with a temperature range below 250 C, which amounts to approximately 15 million tons per year of fuel oil. Applications in the textile industry include mercerizing, drying and processing; drying, dissolving, thickening, leaking and distilling in the chemical industry; cooking, drying and canning in the food industry; craft pulping, bleaching and troubleshooting in pulp and paper industry; leather industry drying and cleaning; various other applications in a variety of other industries. The working fluid required for these applications is hot water, steam or hot air pressurized within the 60-250 C temperature range. There are many solar energy technologies that can be used for these applications and which primarily reduce daily fuel oil consumption. Technologies include solar water heating systems, steam generation systems and air heating systems mounted on flat or evacuated pipe collectors, and solar focusing automatically monitoring systems. Solar water heating is a well-established and worldwide marketing technology. It can be used in the boiler feed industry in raising water temperatures from 25C to 80C to save significant fuel oil used in boilers. A capacity system of 10,000 liters per day can cost 15 to 18 lakhs and save approximately 14,000 liters of fuel oil each year for about 20 years, the lifetime of the system.
