How to Maintain Your Solar Panels 5 Easy Steps

How to Maintain Your Solar Panels: 5 Easy Steps

Are you someone who has invested in a solar system? Or someone who’s planning to invest in solar panels for home? Do you wonder about how solar panels need to be maintained?

Well, this blog is all about how to maintain solar panels easily to keep them at their optimum condition for smooth and optimum performance.

Here are the top three most common concerns regarding solar panel maintenance issues:

  1. Do solar panels need cleaning?
  2. Will the solar panels stop working if they are not cleaned/ maintained regularly?
  3. How much time & money is required to maintain the solar panels?

Solar panels need very little care when it comes to maintenance. Regular cleaning of solar panels is not required unless you stay in an area that’s too dusty/ sandy. The solar panel’s efficiency will drop if dust/ sand/ pollen accumulates over the surface. Thus it’s important to keep the surface clean and for that, the output generated by the solar panels should be monitored regularly. If you notice any drop in the efficiency of the solar panels, then your solar panels might just need a basic cleaning. If your solar panels are placed correctly by your installer after a proper rooftop survey like UTL Solar does, then rains can be a boon for you!

Yes, you read it right! Rains can wash away the dirt/ dust particles time-to-time that accumulates on the surface of the solar panels.

Here are some solar panel tips for easy maintenance, you can save this article for future reference.

Make sure the Solar Panels are not Shaded

If the branches of a tree happen to shade the solar panels, try trimming them. Shading can lower the efficiency of solar panels.

Monitor the Inverter Daily

Keep an eye on the components of the solar system you have installed, inverters indicate if there’s any potential damage.

Keep a Note of the Daily Energy Yield

By taking note of daily solar-electricity production you will be able to see if the solar panels are working at their maximum potential or not. In case of any fluctuation due to weather inconsistencies, there’s no need to worry but if there’s any deviation otherwise you will need to clean up the solar panels/ call a trained service person depending on the situation.

Get it Serviced at least Once a Year

It’s important to get your solar panels serviced at least once a year. Hire trained technicians to check and service if required. This will save your solar panels from unexpected major damages.

You must always make a smart move by buying solar panels from the right place that offers good services a2s UTL does.

Keep your Solar Panels Clean

Keeping solar panels clean is important. And now it’s time to answer the most asked question “can I clean the solar panels myself?”, the answer to this question is yes!

Yes, readers! You can clean your solar panels by yourself, but here are some precautionary tips that you must follow while cleaning the solar panels. Following these solar panel cleaning tips will not only help you protect your solar panels but also save your panels from any major damage.

  • Shut down the solar system while cleaning solar panels and don’t forget to switch off the whole solar main switch.
  • Always refer to the user manual given by your manufacturer for special-care instructions.
  • Clean the solar panels at a comparatively cool temperature. Mornings are best for cleaning as there is natural light, moreover, the morning moisture makes the cleaning easier.
  • Never use pressure washers, hard soaps, or scrubs to wash solar panels. It’s always better to use distilled water at the normal temperature & soft cloth.
  • If you’re using a brush/ broom make sure it’s used only for cleaning solar panels and not for daily chores. Don’t use anything that will cause scratches on the surface of solar panels.

How is Gamma+ the Best Inverter for Your Home?

A twenty-four-hour power supply is rare in India. Very few areas in metropolitan cities can boast of having a continuous supply of electricity. This has resulted in the rise of inverters in India. With time people have evolved to be more conscious environmentally. In recent times people try to make conscious decisions while buying a product to save both their money and the environment by doing their bit of research.

Inverters have evolved as technology advanced with time. We have seen the important rise of solar energy in the last two decades. Moreover, in the last ten years, we have seen the cost of electricity per unit has doubled whereas the cost of solar panels per watt reduced five times. According to the trends we can assume that in the next ten years solar energy will be cheaper than electricity. So, you can see that solar is becoming a necessity and it’s the future!

Working of a Typical Home Inverter

A typical home inverter/UPS system has an inverter and battery system connected to the home power connection. When the electricity comes from the grid, the UPS/inverter system uses the electricity from the grid to charge the battery. When the power is turned off, the inverter takes DC power from the battery and converts it to AC power used by household appliances. There is a circuit breaker in the system to detect whether the grid is not supplying power and switch the UPS to battery mode.

Working of a Solar Inverter

An off-grid solar inverter has an assembly of charge controllers, batteries, solar panels, controllers, and inverter. The batteries are charged using solar panels and the inverter has the same function of converting DC to AC. It can also have an automated switch to sense if the grid is not supplying power that can change the power source of the connected home from the grid to batteries. Depending on the need the system can be designed to:

  1. To completely rely on solar power
  2. Charge the batteries from solar power when the sun is available and from the grid when it is not.

Normal solar inverters have PWM (pulse width modulation) charge controllers, PWM very

It is an old technology which produces only 1.5-2 units of electricity in a day from a 1kw panel. UTL Solar’s Shamsi inverter has a PWM charge controller.

Inverters have become more intelligent and cost-saving, with time the charge controllers advanced to MPPT (maximum power point tracking) technology that produces 3-3.5 units of electricity throughout the day with a 1 kW solar panel.

Now let’s talk about rMPPT that’s the latest and most advanced technology when it comes to solar inverters. rMPPT is more advanced than MPPT. It produces up to 30% more electricity than MPPT. With rMPPT technology, we can produce 4-5 units from 1kw Solar Panel. UTL Solar has patent rights over this technology.

That’s why UTL SOLAR is a company that sells the best inverter for home.

Let’s see WHY Gamma+ Inverter is the Best for Your Home?

This inverter is exactly what you need, we all want to save our hard-earned money. Gamma + inverter is engineered to give the best ROI (return on investment) as it has used rMPPT charge controllers that are more advanced than MPPT charge controllers. With the rMPPT solar technology, Gamma+ inverter saves 30% extra solar energy within the same investment.

How is Gamma+ Inverter Budget-friendly?

It uses the sun’s energy to charge batteries and save electricity from the grid to reduce your electricity bills, moreover, the Gamma+ inverter is almost cost-free.

If you need battery backup for 2 batteries then install one battery of 12V and if you need battery backup for 3 batteries then install two batteries 12V x 2), As GAMMA+ inverter generates backup for two batteries with just one battery as it has rMPPT technology that backs up for the second battery.

How is Gamma+ Inverter Cost-free?

If you take a normal solar inverter (1400/1500 VA) then you would need 4 solar panels of 330 W, but with UTL Solar’s Gamma+ inverter you can generate the same amount of electricity with just 3 solar panels of 330 W. Here you save the buying cost and the installation cost of 1 solar panel which is about ₹8000/- to ₹9000/- With this amount, you can get a Gamma+ inverter without paying extra.

Now you need to decide whether you want to buy a normal solar inverter by paying the full amount of the inverter that gives you less return on investment, or Gamma+ inverter SPGS (solar power generating system) that gives you maximum return on investment and get the Gamma+ inverter for free.

Alfa+ Solar PCU

Alfa+ Solar PCU: Ultimate for Industrial Usage

Nowadays, every other business and household is becoming eco-conscious, the need to use renewable energy sources for generating electricity is obvious. And installing solar PCUs and inverters is one the easiest ways to meet your power requirements while being an ecologically conscious citizen. Most hospitals, schools, industries, petrol pumps, banks and homes are able to realize the enormous potential of solar energy. Come let’s understand the difference between solar inverter and solar PCU.

What is a Solar Inverter?

A solar inverter is among the most critical components of any solar energy system. It facilitates the conversion of direct current (DC) into alternating current (AC) to produce electricity for usage in a wide range of domestic, business, and industrial applications. From televisions to refrigerators and even major technical equipment, solar inverters can power them all.

In addition to being environmentally sustainable, they also help track the entire solar system’s efficiency and provide the analytical data needed to detect and repair any technological faults. Users can also use the excess stored energy in batteries with inverters.

In the case of a solar inverter, solar energy charges the battery during the day, and in the absence of sunlight, the main grids charge the battery. During a power cut, the energy stored in the battery will come to your rescue and help you continue your lives smoothly. Now that we’ve got that covered, let’s look at what a solar PCU (Power Conditioning Unit) is.

What is a Solar PCU?

Sounds like the same thing, doesn’t it? Well, not really. While a solar PCU is similar to a solar inverter, there are a few differences. In a solar PCU, solar charging takes priority during the day. The Solar PCU controls the priority and optimally selects the source of charging. It comes with user selectable energy saver mode which allows the user to select the priority and save the bill. It also selects the source of AC output to be either from the Solar or inverter or the grid. In the Energy Saver Mode priority is given to Solar, the battery is charged first and also supports the inverter to power the appliances. Once the solar energy stops, the PCU starts consuming the stored energy from the battery. Once the stored energy is used to a particular level, the inverter switches to grid. The main focus here is to save the electricity bill cost.

In a solar PCU, solar energy takes precedence, and only in the absence of solar energy is power from the mains used. Solar PCUs are designed with the intent to gain maximum benefits from the sun and therefore reduce energy costs.

Benefits of a Alfa Solar PCU:

Can Run without a Solar Panel

You can power a solar PCU with or without a solar panel. You can either use it as a standard inverter without needing to bother about using solar power. And whenever you feel solar power would be more beneficial, all you need to do is install a solar panel.

Easy to Install and Economical

Solar PCUs are easy to install, affordable, and can also help reduce your electricity bills. It thus ensures that the user gets double the benefit.

Standalone Operation

Compared to a solar inverter, the solar PCU can run with or without Grid Power. The Solar PCUs can be used without connection with Grid. So, while inverters can be used  only with Grid, PCUs work with grid too.

In-depth Information Display

When using a solar inverter, you will have limited access to information. Whereas, when it comes to a solar PCU, you have access to detailed information such as charging status, remedial actions required, load level, battery level, etc.

A Guide to Choosing the Best Online Solar PCU

While Concluding:

So, if you are looking for an economical and viable solar inverter, a solar PCU is the right choice for you. With the growing demand for ecologically sound solutions in India and reduced dependence on grids, installing a solar PCU is a move in the right direction.

UTL Solar has an advanced range of ALFA+ Solar PCU that is mainly used in Hospitals, schools, industries, petrol pumps, banks, and also homes. PCU means Power Conditioning Unit, is an integrated unit consisting of grid charger, inverter, MPPT solar charger. Alfa + solar PCU continuously monitors battery and solar voltage as well as grid and output voltage with their current.

MPPT based solar charge controller extracts the maximum power from the solar panel whereby it increases the efficiency of the system. In Alfa+ Solar PCU MPPT charger has multi stage charging which maintains the battery charging voltage such that it increases the life of the solar battery.

PCUs have become more intelligent and cost saving, with time the charge controllers advanced to MPPT (maximum power point tracking)  technology that produces 3-3.5 units of electricity throughout the day with 1 kW solar panel.

Now let’s talk about rMPPT that’s the latest and most advanced technology when it comes to solar inverters. rMPPT is more advanced than MPPT. It produces up to 30% more electricity than MPPT. With rMPPT technology we can produce 4-5 units from 1kw Solar Panel. UTL Solar has patent rights over this technology.

That’s why UTL SOLAR is a company that sells the best solar PCUs and  inverters.

Best Inverter Battery

Why E-Com Battery Is Best Inverter Battery For Home?

If you live in an area with frequent power cuts, you must be aware of the inverter and inverter battery. Choosing the right inverter battery is important while installing an inverter system. Do you know how to choose the best inverter battery for home at the best price? If not, click here and read the blog Guide To Buy Best Inverter Batteries.

Want to get an inverter battery for home in easy installments? Want a real warranty on your inverter battery?

Generally, the inverter battery company offers a warranty of 3 years, but if the battery is defective, the cycle of replacement goes on for 15 to 30 days. Now in those days, they don’t care if your child’s examinations are going on and during the power cut they are not able to study. Other battery companies do not care whether you are able to eat your dinner or not. They don’t take charge if you are not able to entertain your guests due to the faulty inverter battery.

Why is the Inverter Battery Replacement Period So Long?

During this period the battery company runs the process of battery failure tests. Companies provide the new battery when the final claim is passed. During this cycle of replacement, the dealers of inverter battery try to compensate by giving a service battery. However, the service battery is unable to deliver required battery backup. Even after paying the whole amount for the battery, you have to struggle during power cuts. Generally, the offered warranty for the inverter battery is only of 3 years of battery, but it is not useful when you actually need it. So, is this warranty of the battery real or fake?

Considering this problem, UTL has come up with an interesting solution. UTL has designed India’s best inverter batteries that is made using the latest technology and hence will not stop working. We are promising to give ₹1000 if the battery stops working. UTL is offering this because inverter batteries from other companies are failing and if you are troubled with our battery as well, you need to be compensated.

If our Battery Stops working you’ll get ₹1000* as compensation

Are you looking for an inverter battery for home that gives longer battery backup and has a longer battery life? If yes, then here are some features that make UTL Solar’s E-Com batteries give longer battery backups & longer battery life.

Features of UTL Inverter Batteries

Tubular gauntlet plate with smaller holes for longer battery backup

Ordinary tubular batteries have large holes in the plate that leads to fast leakage of oxide particles, which gradually reduces the battery backup. The specially designed tubular gauntlet plate in the E-Com Battery has more number of smaller holes, which cuts the loss of active material but offers a complete surface for acid reaction. This also provides good backup and prolongs the life of the inverter battery.

Right mix of carbon, barium sulphate, and lignin for complete battery backup in the end months

Many tubular batteries experience a significant reduction in the last months of their life. However, the E-Com Battery provides good backup, as it has a fully balanced chemical material utilization factor in its positive and negative plates. The combination of carbon, barium sulphate, and lignin has been well utilized in the paste of the negative plate of UTL USB 17100 Battery, which helps in maintaining the ability to store charge in the plate during the end months.

Plastic cap made up of HDPE material for longer battery life

During the service life of tubular batteries or home UPS batteries, the plastic cap under the positive tubular plate cracks and breaks, leaving its paste out and terminating the life of the battery. E-Com Battery has HDPE material cap which is safe and does not allow the positive mass to come out.

High-Pressure Die Casting

The E-Com Battery has a high-pressure die casting which reduces the gap between the molecules and leaves no room for anything else. This protects the inverter battery plates from corrosion and improves the battery life.

Leak-proof vent plug

Even if you keep the inverter battery tilted at 90 degrees for 45 minutes, the acid does not fall out of it. This offers two advantages; one is that very little acidic gas will be able to come out of the battery and secondly the transportation of the battery becomes safe and efficient.

Increased amount of pure alloy for less evaporation

In inverter battery, the more pure the spine and grid alloy is, the higher their conductivity becomes. The higher the conductivity, the less hot the battery plate gets during charging. This results in decreased evaporation of water. The E-Com Battery has a pure spine and grid alloy, which results in an advantage that you will only need to add water after 3 months compared to a normal inverter battery.

Shamsi Solar Inverter: Make a Better Choice

This blog will help you make your buying decision when you are planning to buy an inverter for your home. Although there are a lot of options available in the market when it comes to buying a solar inverter. Through this blog you will be able to make the correct choice to get the maximum ROI (return on investment).

We have seen the rise of solar energy in the last two decades. According to the stats, in the last ten years we have seen the cost of electricity per unit doubled whereas the cost of solar panel per watt reduced five times. According to the trends we can assume that in the next ten years solar energy will be cheaper than electricity. So you can see that solar is becoming a necessity and it’s the future!

Working of a Typical Home Inverter

A typical home inverter/UPS system has an inverter and battery system connected to the home power connection. When the electricity comes from the grid, the UPS/inverter system uses the electricity from the grid to charge the battery. When the power is turned off, the inverter takes DC power from the battery and converts it to AC power used by household appliances. There is a circuit breaker in the system to detect whether the grid is not supplying power and switch the UPS to battery mode.

Working of a Solar Inverter

An off grid solar inverter has an assembly of charge controller, batteries, solar panels, controller, and inverter. The batteries are charged using solar panels and the inverter has the same function of converting DC to AC. It can also have an automated switch to sense if the grid is not supplying power that can change the power source of the connected home from grid to batteries. Depending on the need the system can be designed to:

  1. To completely rely on solar power.
  2. Charge the batteries from solar power when sun is available and from the grid when it is not.

When it comes to choosing the best solar inverter, there is one name that pops up in your google search, ‘SHAMSI’, a solar inverter by UTL Solar.

Why is SHAMSI the Best Solar Inverter for You?

Shamsi solar inverter has been manufactured to fit your budget, It has PWM (pulse width modulation) charge controllers like Heliac. Shamsi solar inverter is manufactured by UTL’s solar, whose inverters are the most preferred solar inverter and leading in India. Shamsi solar inverter that is widely used in the home, offices, commercial, and industrial sectors. There are various models in the Shamsi solar inverter (675VA/12V to 1475VA/24V) depending on its voltage.

Since power usage from the grid is secondary, grid power is only used when solar power is not present and the battery voltage level is reduced to a certain level. Grid power is also needed when solar power is reduced to a certain level and battery voltage is reduced to a certain level.

Shamsi solar inverter has advanced features like PWM solar charge controller, most advanced LCD features, maximum preference to solar, capability of 100% panel rating, built in IT mode etc.

Reasons for Choosing SHAMSI Solar Inverter

Installing an Inverter without solar panels has a lot of demerits. This is because electricity generated from a normal power inverter system is 50% more costly. Let us explain how:

Ordinary power inverter systems consume around 20% electricity in storing the power in the battery, during its initial cycle. Then for every next charge cycle, around 10% of electricity gets wasted. Also, during a power cut, an ordinary power inverter system consumes 10% of power for every discharge cycle and utilizes 15% of power for battery utilization. Compared to an ordinary home inverter, the battery of UTL’s Solar Inverter System has an extended life of around 9-24 Months.

Normal power inverters do not provide extra backup. However, the Shamsi solar inverter offers additional backup. Moreover, UTL Solar has amazing offers through which you can buy the Shamsi solar inverter at the price of a normal inverter. Considering the ongoing trend it is the right time to buy a solar inverter system as electricity has become 2 times more costly in the past 10 years. However, solar panels have become 5 times cheaper and the prices are expected to further go down.

The Flexibility of SHAMSI Solar Inverter

In case you do not have the required space to install solar panels, you can easily operate this inverter without solar panels, similar to a normal inverter system. It is capable of working even without solar panels and you can get the solar panel installed any time according to your requirements. Shamsi solar inverter is integrated with a solar charger, which increases the solar panel efficiency and battery life. It has different operating modes as well that are explained below:

PCU MODE for Cities

If there is more electricity in the cities, then it will run your load with generated solar power and battery. This way cuts your electricity bill.

Hybrid MODE for Villages

This mode will operate the load by generating solar power and grid electricity during the day and keep the battery charged for night backup.

Smart MODE for Towns

In most of the towns generating electricity and saving bills are dual tasks; it will operate the loads with a synchronised combination of both generated solar power and grid electricity. 

So, as explained, if you are planning to buy a solar inverter, SHAMSI solar inverter is a great choice.

Special Features of Shamsi Solar Inverter

7 Things to Consider Before Installing Solar Panels

Are you someone who is planning to install solar panels or solar systems at your home or office? You might know how solar panels work to generate electricity and how solar electricity can run all your electrical appliances. But do you know the things to keep in mind before installing solar panels at your home?

Installing a solar system and solar panel is considered to be an investment. If the solar system and the solar panel are brought from branded companies like UTL Solar then you can be assured about total ROI (return on investment) and enjoy the benefits of the solar panel for the rest of its life. Did you know that solar panels have 25 years of performance warranty*? Within the first 3-4 years the initial investment is recovered after that for the next 22 years they will be able to generate free electricity for all their electrical needs.

Solar panels are of many types but the most selling models of solar panels are: Monocrystalline and Polycrystalline. Solar panels don’t require extra space for their installation. Solar panels can be installed on any roof. You don’t need an extra empty land area. But there are Things to Keep in Mind Before Installing Solar Panels At Your Home.

What Are the Things to Consider Before the Installation of Solar Panels?

1. Having the Right Knowledge about Solar Technologies for Choosing

To install solar panels you must be aware of the latest solar technology in the market, moreover, you should also know the type of solar technology you need as per your requirements.

There’s thermal technology that’s used in solar heaters, to heat water. 

Again, there’s the photovoltaic technology that’s used to produce solar electricity.

In the photovoltaic category, there are two types as discussed earlier:

The monocrystalline solar panels are identified by black photo-voltaic cells with round edges. Having a higher conversion efficiency than polycrystalline solar panels.

Monocrystalline solar panels are known to produce more kilowatt-hours of electricity. If you are planning to install a solar system but have space limitations then these panels will prove to be more productive per square foot area.

Here are some monocrystalline Solar Panels from UTL Solar: Mono Perc Solar Panels, Mono Solar Panel 165 Watt, Mono Solar Panel 200 Watt, Mono Solar Panel 400 Watt.

While they’re the most efficient solar panels, they’re also the most expensive, since the manufacturing process of single-crystal silicon cells is more complex.

The polycrystalline solar panels are identified by blue-hued photo-voltaic cells with straight edges. Polycrystalline panels are cheaper in price since their manufacturing process is simpler. These solar panels are very durable and budget friendly.

Here are some of the best selling solar panels from UTL Solar: 100 Watt Solar Panel, 160 Watt Solar Panel, 265watt Solar Panel, 330 Watt Solar Panel, 335 Watt Solar Panel, 40 Watt Solar Panel, 60 Watt Solar Panel.

It is very important to choose the right kind of solar panel as that will affect the energy that your solar system will generate. Solar systems consist of solar panels and inverter, sometimes it has an added backup and is supported by batteries. So, it is very important to install a good inverter as well.

2. Calculating your Energy Consumption

Before installing solar panels and the solar system it is important to calculate the daily power usage. This step will help you decide the right size of the solar system & you will be able to calculate the number of solar panels required accordingly.

To calculate your daily power usage you have to note this simple formula.

Daily Power Consumption = Wattage rating x time in hours

3. Determine the Size of the Solar System & Calculate the No. of Solar Panels

Now, that you have calculated the power consumption you can make an informed decision about what size of the solar system you will need and how many solar panels will be able to meet your daily power consumption needs.

Remember this 3 thumb rule to determine the size of the solar system & calculate the no. of solar panels.

The amount of bill should equal the kW of the solar system

For example: If your bill comes to 5000, then a system of 5kW should be installed.

Only 80% of the sanctioned load is used to install the solar system

Example: Sanctioned load – 5kW

Maximum Solar Plant Allowed – 4kW

The sanctioned load will have to be increased for bigger size.

Maximum Plant Size (kw) = Shadow Free Area in Sq Feet /100

Example – Shadow free area on your roof – 1800 Sq Feet

The maximum plant you can install – 18kW

Whichever of these three has the least value, the solar system of the same size should be installed by you.

4. Rooftop Survey

A good solar panel installer will always do a site survey before the installation of solar panels. This is a very crucial thing to keep in mind, as every roof is different thus the plan for solar panel installation for every roof has to be planned accordingly to get the maximum output from the solar panels installed.

A rooftop survey helps the installer plan how the solar panels can be placed on the roof in an optimized manner, it helps them note the following factors:

  • Material of Roofing
  • Pitch of Roofing
  • Shape and Size of Roof
  • Orientation of Roof
  • Shade Around Roof

If the rooftop survey is not done properly then shadows can minimize the optimization, this can be prevented with a site survey. A site survey helps the installer to check for unsafe wire joints and structure joints, the installer can chart out a safety plan before installation so that post installation there are no safety issues.

5. Awareness About Subsidies & Offers

As you might be aware that the government promotes eco-friendly products/ concepts for the welfare of the environment and generating power from solar is absolutely pollution free, it reduces carbon footprint and there’s no emission of hazardous gasses in this process. Locally and globally there are many schemes and subsidies that are provided to people who switch to solar power To promote and inspire more and more masses these schemes have been initiated. In general government, incentives come in two main forms.

  • Investment subsidies, in which the cost of installing solar panels is partially refunded.
  • Feed-in tariffs or net metering, whereby the solar electricity you produce can be sold to the electricity utility operating the grid.

6. Check If You Need a Battery

If you wish to take an off-grid inverter or hybrid inverter then, a battery must be taken into consideration. A good battery from a good brand should be brought so that you get a good battery life and long hours of backup. To choose the right battery click on the link below:

A Guide To Buy Best Inverter Battery for Home

7. Choosing a Trusted Installer

Now that you have considered these parameters, and you are ready to install solar panels you must remember that the life of the solar panels and the working of your solar system will depend on the quality. Quality is promised by the brands and their services.

Even if you are going for good brands it is said that it’s always better to make solar panels, solar inverters, and batteries (if needed) from the same company. Have you wondered why?

It is because these work in coordination with each other if in case one component fails the whole system will get affected. Now, in such a case if you take three things from three different companies then, their service team will not only charge the services differently but also put blames on each other and you will have to suffer the consequences. But if you take all the components of the solar system from one company then, the company will have to attend to your problems, and your service cost will be saved.

Choosing solar panels, solar inverters, solar batteries and other parts from different companies might look cheap but in the long run, it’s a loss.

To install solar panels follow these steps so that you are able to make an informed decision. And you are able to get the maximum benefit by installing solar panels and the solar system.

Solar Panel Installation Cost in India 2022

You definitely have come across the term “solar energy”, It doesn’t matter in which city or town you stay in, you must have seen solar panels. Solar panels harvest solar energy! Every time you see solar panels don’t you get curious to know more about them?

This blog will talk about solar panel types, solar panel price in India, solar panel price for home, Solar Panel Installation Cost in India and more. But first, let’s understand how solar panels harvest solar energy.

Working of Solar Panel:

Solar panels are also called photo-voltiac panels. They consist energy particles called photons which convert sunlight into electricity when sunlight falls on them. Solar electricity can substitute the electricity fed from electricity board. The electricity generated by the solar panel can be used directly to power the electrical loads/ devices or can be stored as a backup.

The solar sector is booming in India, Solar panels & solar systems are used widely, they can run power systems for remotely situated telecommunication companies, light houses, village hospitals, schools, institutions along with city based residential and commercial communities.

Depending on the quality of the solar panel the system’s lifespan can be even more than 22-25 years. Making an investment in solar panels is such that once you have paid for its initial investment cost, the electricity that it is going to generate for the rest of it’s life is going to be free of cost!

Before discussing Solar Panel Installation Cost in India lets discuss solar panel types and requirements for solar panel installation.

Installation of Solar Panel

Solar panels don’t require extra space for it’s installation. Solar panels can be installed on any roof. You don’t need an extra empty land area. It’s just that your rooftop must have enough space for the installation of the required number of solar panels to generate more than a sufficient amount of electricity to suffice the power needs of your home/ building. The extra generated electricity is stored and is used at night when there’s no sunlight.

Come let’s discuss the benefits of installing solar panels, it’s obvious that by installing solar panels you’re switching to eco-friendly power generation at the same point reducing pollution and carbon- footprint. Solar power is a safe and sustainable source of energy. But did you know that Indian geography is highly suitable for the installation of solar panels as India receives a lot of tropical sunlight due to it’s mapping. There are almost 300+ sunny days every year. Thus solar panels get an ideal weather to give maximum output throughout the year.

Solar Panel Installation Cost in India can be considered as a secure investment as once you have paid for solar panels initial investment cost, the electricity that it is going to generate for the rest of its life is going to be free of cost. Moreover, as per the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy, the government pays 30% of the installation cost as a subsidy to the installer. The government encourages people to switch to an eco-friendly sources of energy and offers tax credits to those who install solar panels on their rooftops whether it be for commercial or residential purposes.

Solar panels manufactured by big brands like UTL have very low maintenance costs and have a good lifespan, thus maximizing the ROI.
