How UTL Hybrid Solar Inverters Generate 30% More Electricity?

How UTL Hybrid Solar Inverters Generate 30% More Electricity?

It is evident that there are lots of solar inverters available in the market; however, do you know there are some inverters among them that can generate extra electricity. Yes, you read it right extra electricity! This blog will help you understand how UTL’s hybrid solar inverters produce around 30% extra power as compared to other options available in the market. Let us check out how:

To understand this properly, we have to understand the concept of rMPPT. UTL has come up with a technology that is more advanced than MPPT technology. rMPPT stands for ‘Rapid Maximum Power Point Technology.’ The voltage of the solar panel keeps on fluctuating according to the light intensity of the sun. The voltage keeps on decreasing or increasing from morning to evening. At all times, according to the voltage of the solar panel, which output will get the most power, it needs to be constantly monitored and changed accordingly. This is what rMPPT technology does well.

If the tracking is done properly throughout the day, then it can lead to generation of 30% more solar energy. UTL Solar has also applied for a patent for this technology.

Features of UTL Hybrid Inverters

Hybrid inverters by UTL can take input from solar panels, battery, or grid depending on the requirement and need of the source. The hybrid inverters by UTL can be easily operated in one of the 3 suitable modes. This makes them one of the best home solar solution in India. 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. 

UTL has three models in its hybrid inverter segment:

Gamma+ Solar Inverter

Gamma+ rMPPT solar inverter also known as Gamma+ Home PCU is the best selling MPPT solar inverter in India in the 1000VA range. This solar inverter is available in 12 volt and 24 volt and supports up to 1000 watt solar panels. You have options to use both types of 12 volt and 24-volt solar panels.

The secondary source is the power coming from the grid.  Heliac solar inverters are available from 850VA to 3500VA.


How UTL E-Com is the Cheapest Solar Inverter Battery?

How UTL E-Com is the Cheapest Solar Inverter Battery?

With the beginning of the utilization of solar energy and solar products, the application of solar inverter battery is increasing. However, users tend to search for products that are both pocket-friendly and efficient. Though there are many options for solar inverter battery available in the market; however, are they actually cheap? To answer this we have to understand the concept of battery pricing:

Simply reducing the size (Ah rating) or decreasing the warranty period does not make a battery cheaper. The size and warranty period are two major factors that decide the battery price. Due to a lack of knowledge about batteries and their correct evaluation, you suffer again and again. A battery with a low Ah rating or a shorter warranty period can be troublesome. This results in the replacement of your battery after every two to three years. Most of the time this loss remains hidden and you don’t even realize the loss. 

To know the actual price, UTL Solar has come up with a way to incorporate both the Ah rating and warranty period into the calculation. The solution is known as PMPA (Per Month Per Ah) cost. To calculate the PMPA cost you need to know three parameters:

  1. The price you will pay for the battery
  2. Battery size/capacity that is measured in Ah
  3. The warranty period of the battery (in months)

Consider the above-mentioned concept, this is how UTL’s E-Com solar inverter battery is the least expensive in the market:

The cost of a UTL E-Com solar inverter battery is ₹12500. It is a 170Ah battery with 100 months warranty. 

Then, its per month cost is 12500/100= ₹125

Therefore for a 170Ah battery the PMPA Cost= 125/170= ₹0.73 per month per Ah (PMPA), which is the lowest PMPA cost in the market. This is why the UTL E-Com solar inverter battery is the least expensive in the market right now. Moreover, UTL will return your full money if you find another battery, within 30 days, that has less PMPA cost than the E-Com battery.

After booking, a designated store will deliver the battery to you. UTL is also offering lifetime service for the battery that includes home visits and refilling distilled water.


PMPA: Right Way to Analyze Battery Price!

PMPA: Right Way to Analyze Battery Price!

If you are looking or have looked for an inverter battery? You must have received a lot of offers from many battery companies. But, do you actually know what is the actual price of that battery? Well, this blog is dedicated to answering all these questions.

People come across several deals and price lists when it comes to buying an inverter battery; however, knowing the actual value of that battery should be crystal clear. The battery that you think is cheap, in reality, is far away from being cheap or inexpensive. Let us know how:

How to Decide Whether a Battery is Expensive or Cheap? 

Does reducing the size of the battery make it cheaper? or does decreasing the warranty period reduce its price? The answer is No! Due to a lack of knowledge about batteries and their correct evaluation, you suffer again and again. This results in the replacement of your battery after every two to three years. Most of the time this loss remains hidden and you don’t even realize the loss. 

This happens because the battery which you consider to be cheap has either less size (Ah rating) which results in less backup. Moreover, the cheap battery has less warranty due to which you have to pay the replacement cost once it stops working in 1.5 to 2 years. And sometimes both problems occur together in so-called “cheap batteries.”

UTL Solar has deduced a way to calculate the cost of the battery effectively. This method considers all the necessary parameters in the calculation. To calculate the PMPA cost you need to know three parameters:

  1. The price you will pay for the battery
  2. Battery size/capacity that is measured in Ah
  3. The warranty period of the battery (in months)

Consider the following example to understand the concept: 

If the cost of a 150Ah battery with 30 months warranty is ₹13500

Then, its per month cost is 13500/30= ₹450

Therefore For a 150Ah battery the PMPA Cost= 450/150= ₹3 per month per Ah (PMPA)   

With the help of PMPA cost, you can correctly evaluate the cost-effectiveness of any battery easily. Using this formula, UTL Solar has launched a battery with the lowest PMPA cost. UTL E-Com battery is a 170Ah battery that has a whopping warranty period of 100 months. The price of the battery is only ₹12500. This makes its PMPA cost to be ₹0.73.

rMPPT Technology

What is the new rMPPT technology

rMPPT Technology: A Full Review!

The world of solar energy is changing rapidly. People are extensively working towards increasing the efficiency of photovoltaic cells and solar panels. In this blog, you’ll get to know about one of the technologies that are developed by UTL Solar. Before learning about we should know about certain concepts, Let’s check it out:

Solar Charge Controller

A solar charge controller, also known as a solar regulator, is essentially a solar battery charger that is connected between the solar panels and the battery. The main purpose of a solar charge controller is to regulate the battery charging process and ensure the battery is charged correctly and is not over-charged. 

Constant technological development is happening in solar charge controllers. Modern solar charge controllers have advanced features to make sure that the battery system is charged precisely and efficiently, including features such as DC load output used for lighting.

PWM vs MPPT Solar Charge Controller

A simple PWM, or ‘pulse width modulation’ solar charge controllers have a direct connection from the solar array to the battery and utilize a basic ‘rapid switch’ to modulate or control the process of battery charging. The switch or transistor remains open until the battery reaches the absorption charge voltage.

Then the switch begins to open and close rapidly (hundreds of time per second) to modulate the current and maintain a constant battery voltage. This works fine; however, the problem is the solar panel voltage is pulled down to match the battery voltage. This in turn pulls the panel voltage away from its optimum operating voltage (Vmp) and decreases the panel power output and operating efficiency.

Whereas, MPPT or ‘maximum power point trackers’ are far more advanced as compared to PWM controllers and enable the solar panel to work at its maximum power point or the optimum voltage for maximum power output. With the help of this clever technology, MPPT solar charge controllers can be up to 30% more efficient, depending on the battery voltage and operating voltage (Vmp) of the solar panel.

A step further than MPPT Technology!

UTL has come up with a technology that is more advanced than MPPT technology. rMPPT stands for ‘Rapid Maximum Power Point Technology.’ The voltage of the solar panel keeps on fluctuating according to the light intensity of the sun. The voltage keeps on decreasing or increasing from morning to evening.

At all times, according to the voltage of the solar panel, which output will get the most power, it needs to be constantly monitored and changed accordingly. This is what rMPPT technology does well. If this tracking is done properly from morning to evening, then up to 30% more solar energy gets generated. UTL Solar has also applied for a patent for this technology.

UTL Solar has integrated this latest technology into its wide range of solar home inverters. Such as Gamma+ inverter, which is a hybrid inverter because it can take input from Solar Panel, Battery, or Grid depending on the requirement and need of the source. This Hybrid Inverter by UTL can be easily operated in one of the 3 Suitable Modes. This makes UTL Solar Gamma+ one of the best home solar solutions in India.

Guide to Install Solar Panel System at Home

Beginner’s Guide to Install Solar Panel System at Home

The arrival of the summer season is a great opportunity to install a solar panel system at home. However, switching to a solar panel system according to the home’s energy requirements is not an easy task. But, considering its long term-benefits related to savings and Eco-friendly aspects, UTL Solar highly recommends you to get a solar system for your home. 

The right way to begin the process would be to start with figuring out the right solar panel system for your house. This decision should be made by calculating several important factors such as your energy needs, the location of your house, your budget, and more. This blog will help you in figuring out these factors. Let’s take a look:

Location of Your House

The location of your property is one of the most important factors to take into account while getting a solar panel systems. That is because the performance of any solar panel is directly proportional to the amount of solar radiation they receive. For the most efficient performance, solar panels should be placed in areas with broad sunlight coverage. In case, your house is situated in an area that doesn’t receive ample sunlight then the solar panels have to be more efficient.

Solar Panel Efficiency

Solar panel efficiency is yet another crucial factor that should be considered before installing a solar panel system. It is defined as the ability of a solar panel to convert input energy to output energy. There are many benefits of having a more efficient solar panel such as it supports the solar batteries to charge faster attributing to its higher output. Also, a more efficient solar panel also generates more power in areas that don’t receive adequate sunlight. If you want a panel with average efficiency, then go for solar panels having 15 to 16 percent. 17 to 19 percent is considered to be a better efficiency and a 20 percent efficient solar panel is considered to be the best.

Solar Panel System Size

The size of the solar panel that’s right for your home depends upon your energy requirements. To calculate your power requirement, you need to add up the power consumed by each electrical appliance that you are utilizing in your home. Consider your power requirement is as mentioned in the table given below:

EquipmentPower Rating (Watt)QuantityLoadDuty Cycle (Hrs)Daily Energy Consumption (Watt Hours)
LED Light10330260
Total Load (Watts)490Total Daily Energy Consumption (Watt Hours)980

The formula for calculating your panel size requirement 

Panel Size Requirement = Daily Energy Consumption (Watt Hours)/3 

                                        = 980/3

                                        = 326.7 W

This means you can choose to go with 

3 x 100Wp or 2 x 150Wp solar panels in parallel


If you don’t want to keep replacing your panels after a few years, then go for a durable panel that can adhere to extreme weather conditions such as hail, strong winds, rains, etc.  A good solar panel would last anywhere between 25 to 30 years. However, this doesn’t mean panels with less life expectancy would cease to perform after the given period. It just means that the efficiency of the panels would start to decrease after that time period. If you are looking for a durable solar panel go for a reputable and old brand such as UTL Solar that has a wide range of solar products such as solar batteries, solar inverters, solar PCU etc. for its customers. 

When it comes to buying solar panels, UTL Solar is a preferred brand trusted by all. You can go check out their wide range of offerings online. You can also contact their experts and choose a solar panel system that is perfect for your needs.

How to Choose the Right Time to Install a Solar System?

How to Choose the Right Time to Install a Solar System?

As a company that deals in solar solutions and products, UTL Solar always comes across a prevalent question from readers and potential buyers. Yes, you guessed it right! “What is the right time/season to install a solar systems on one’s premises? Most of the time it is observed that buyers are doubtful about installing a solar system during winters or in the rainy season.

The one thing that everyone should remember is that sunlight on our planet is not a seasonal phenomenon. We are also lucky to be living in the part of the world which receives sunlight throughout the year. So, this answers the question! The most appropriate time to install a solar system is when the sun is shining bright in the sky!However, there are a few misconceptions that flutter around regarding the installation of the solar systems. This blog will help you get over those misconceptions and try to answer all those questions which have been in a buyer’s mind before thinking of installing a solar system in their home, office, etc.

Non-Seasonal Product

As explained above, one of the most popular questions is whether solar is a seasonal product? Now, the question arises, what is a seasonal product? Seasonal products are those products that you only need for a particular season such as cooler, heater, or geyser. However, this is not the case with a solar systems. Solar panels are functional for 365 days of 25 years, which you have the warranty for. Sometimes it is functional beyond the warranty period too.

The sun shines each day and you need to switch on your light or fan every day at least. This will be taken care of by the solar systems. So, a solar panel is a non-seasonal product. It is perfectly capable of working throughout the year.

Weather Conditions

The second misbelief that people have is regarding the effects of weather conditions on the functioning of the solar system. It is a fact that the climate of a certain place will have a direct impact on the working of your solar systems. However, as we have discussed earlier, it is not like India does not receive sunlight at all. As long as there are sun’s rays falling on the solar panels, your solar systems will function. Nowadays, solar panels can work efficiently even in low-light conditions. According to UTL Solar’s experts, solar panels generate 10% to 25% power generation in rainy seasons.

Consumption vs Production

Some of the critics argue that the output of a solar system is less in winters as the sun is not very strong at that time. Yes, this is true, there will be some difference. However, other factors should be taken into account such as your consumption pattern. During winters the consumption rate is also low. When your consumption of power is high such as in summers, the production of power from solar panels is also high. It is also seen that air conditioners utilize a large amount of power. It is recommended that customers should install DC appliances as they consume low power to run. 

So, before making up your mind you should calculate your consumption and then decide on choosing the right solar system.

Real Use Case Scenario

Installing a solar system in small towns is completely lucrative. Since villages and small towns face more power cuts, they need to become independent of the grid. Though it is claimed that electricity has reached the remotest parts of the country, the actual scenario is a bit different and regular power cuts are observed during natural adversities such as heavy rains or floods, unlike in big cities. 

It was seen during the recent floods in parts of the country like West Bengal, Bihar, Jharkhand, Assam, Rajasthan, and more were still struggling for power. If consumers had a solar system in place they would have power irrespective of the main power supply.

Use of Latest Technology Product

Sometimes consumers are unable to install a solar system at the right time as they do not get the required and appropriate technical advice. Lack of technically sound sales consultants and lack of proper technical product details sometimes dissuade buyers from investing. 

Consumers do not get much-required knowledge and are unable to buy the latest technology product. They prefer to buy goods based on low prices, and the majority of the sellers are ready to sell them low-quality products because they do not want to lose the customer. If a customer has the proper knowledge about technically advanced products, they will surely buy them even for a little higher price tag. Below mentioned are some of the latest technology solar products:

  • Panels – Monocrystalline
  • Wire – DC cable
  • Inverter – rMPPT (UTL Solar’s Technology),
  • Panel Stand – Wall Mounted, etc.


When is the right time to install a solar system?

The right time to install a solar system depends on various factors, including your energy needs, financial readiness, available incentives, and local solar conditions.

How can I determine if my home is suitable for a solar system?

Assess factors such as available roof space, shading, roof orientation, and local solar irradiation levels to determine if your home is suitable for solar installation.

What financial considerations should I keep in mind when installing a solar system?

Consider factors such as the cost of installation, available financing options, potential savings on electricity bills, and available incentives or tax credits.

Are there any government incentives or tax credits available for installing a solar system?

Yes, many regions offer incentives such as solar rebates, tax credits, or feed-in tariffs that can significantly offset the cost of installing a solar system.

How can I estimate the return on investment (ROI) for a solar system?

For some time, solar energy has become one of the most affordable, dependable, and financially viable sources of energy. Most people are aware of the ‘Eco-friendly’ benefits of solar energy. However, there are other interesting financial rewards associated with solar energy, which are motivating people to replace traditional electricity with solar electricity as well. Solar power/energy requires an initial investment where you’ve to purchase a solar system and install it on your home or business property. However, after the initial investment, The whole scenario becomes a lifetime of savings option with lowered energy bills and increased property value. Here are some points that make the on-grid solar system a great choice for home:

It offers Instant Savings

These days with new and advanced technology growing faster than ever, the question is not if solar electricity saves money, but how much money does it save. Because of solar panels generating utility-free electricity along with government incentives, you’ll observe your bills plummeting down and savings rise up. Whether you have purchased the solar system using cash or a loan, the solar electricity bill will definitely be less as compared to a traditional utility bill. In fact, you may save money instead of spending money on buying energy.

In-Built Savings

Every month you’ll experience small energy bill savings, which will add up quickly over a certain period of time. Depending on whether it is cash or loan purchase, those savings will be observed immediately or add up to something big over time.

Everyone experiences different savings, because of the difference in location, sun exposure, and many other factors that affect the solar energy generated. While some may get 30% savings, there may be lucky ones who make 100% savings.

Long term Savings

When a customer invests in a on-grid system by UTL Solar, their investment will promise them a return every month. Now, the generated energy from the solar panels leads to a possibility that you don’t have to pay the utility company at all. Not only do you accumulate energy, but it will be credited to your account, proper accounting and adjustment will be done in the form of import/export and banking.

This clearly leads to the fact that whatever is generated extra, that will be adjusted in your peak demand, if there are some extra credit units in your account, it will be paid according to the FIT rates of that year.

This ultimately means that apart from savings you may earn something for the extra units your solar system has generated. So, basically, you will be paid for the extra units sold to DISCOM.

Depreciation Benefits

This advantage is given to promote the usage and application of the on-grid system in the industrial/commercial segment. 40% AD (accelerated depreciation) can be claimed for the installation of these systems. This facility ultimately affects the tax payment.


Apart from these benefits, there are some other benefits as well such as low gestation period, decreased transmission and distribution losses, improvement in the tail-end grid voltages and reduction of system congestion. Integration of the solar system leads to long term energy and ecological security because of reduction in carbon emission. It has minimal technical losses as power consumption and generation are collocated.

Before buying a new inverter, It is important to make sure that your current inverter works efficiently. Inverters and batteries are prone to lack in performance due to extended use over the years and show a hampered functioning.

Check out these Here are five reasons you should upgrade your inverter:

1. Inverter is not Charging the Battery Completely

One of the most common problems that people face with their inverters is the inverter battery stops charging. Generally, in these cases, the problem is of a dead battery or there is a fault with the grade separators. You can either buy a new battery or get it replaced if it is in the warranty period. However, this problem can arise due to other inverters related issues. These problems include burnt rectifiers, rusted terminals, fused active material, or even an electrical fault in the main board. Depending on the issue and after talking to a technician, you can decide to get a new battery or upgrade your inverter.

2. Batteries Need Maintenance

If your inverters is facing an electrical board failure or repetitive beeping of the alarm, or the monitor displaying incorrect codes, you should contact a professional technician. These issues can occur due to problems with battery wires and cables, or it might be that your inverters keeps switching from the mainline grid to the battery. Based on the maintenance observations, you can choose to upgrade your inverter to avoid spending unnecessary money on constant maintenance. In case you want to buy a new battery, you should go with tubular batteries or gel batteries to enjoy consistent backup power and longer battery life.

3. Increment in Load Needs

With the passage of time, it is inevitable to buy new appliances, devices, and other electronics. This will increase electrical load requirements, which your present inverter and battery might not be able to support. Inverters and batteries are engineered with a certain capacity, which should not be exceeded as it can burn out the inverter system or result in a power failure. This can also lead to the degradation of the life of the appliances and electronics used. Understanding your load requirements is critically essential to find the most effective power backup solutions. Here, you must remember these two things – Power Requirement and Volt Ampere (VA) Rating.

5. Humming Noise During Back-Up Mode

As explained above inverters have become a necessity in homes and offices due to efficient power backup capabilities. The home inverter should match your power requirements and ensure smoother electrical operation. It should also safeguard your appliances from any fuse or short-circuit. While the inverters is in backup mode, if you hear a continuous humming noise, it can be due to waveform deterrence. To explain things easily, if you have an old inverter that is based on technology such as square wave, there is a high chance that the humming noise you hear coming out of your appliances is due to the same reason.

As a solution, you can upgrade your inverters to a sine wave inverter with higher ratings to experience the best power backup.
