    Solar is by far the most financially benefitting renewable systems. If you are worried by your high electricity bills, solar is the way to go. The subsidy from the government is like a cherry on top. You can get your solar system up and running by claiming your subsidy of up to 40%.

    There are many benefits for going solar. The major & the most rewarding ones are:

    • It saves your money by giving you zero electricity bills.
    • You can protect yourself from rising electricity rates.
    • You can increase your property value
    • You can earn money by supplying to the grid
    • You can reduce your carbon footprint
    • You can get your money back in just 3 – 4 years
    • Most Importantly, you can contribute into saving our planet by choosing green & clean energy.

    On-grid solar power system is a solar power generation system where electricity generated by the system is used to run your home appliances. These type of systems are connected to the grid so that when the excess power is generated, it diverts the power to grid and you receive money for the power you supply.

    A typical Solar Rooftop systems consists of the following:

    • Solar Modules
    • Inverter Distribution
    • Box Solar Meter
    • Bidirectional Meter

    However, these kind of systems are connected bi-directionally so that when you need excess power which cannot be supplied by your solar systems, that power will be supplied by the grid for which you pay the money.

    As per the GUVNL scheme, the Gujarat Government is providing subsidy to install Solar Rooftop Systems for the Residential houses. The scheme started in late November when the Chief Minister of Gujarat Mr. Vijay Rupani Announced it.

    According to the scheme you can get upto 40% subsidy for your  solar rooftop systems. Here are the details:

    1. 40% Subsidy till 3Kw  
    2. 20% Subsidy Above 3Kw

    Yes there is a time limit. As per the government, you can apply for your solar rooftop subsidy till March 2021. After that the window will be closed to apply for your solar.

    The documents required for applying to claim your solar subsidy are as follows:

    1. Your latest electricity bill
    2. House tax receipt (Vara Bill)
    3. Aadhar Card
    4. Two passport size photo

    No, On grid solar systems are designed in such a way that they will not supply power during the power outage. The reason behind this is that, when the power outage is present, the energy will try to go to grid. This is done to protect the engineers working on the grid lines from getting electrocuted. The inverters are the ones that cuts the power supply to grid.

    Solar Panels are devices that generates DC current. The appliance in your homes run on AC current. So to use the power supplied from solar rooftop systems, an inverter is used. An inverter is a device that converts DC current into AC current. 

    Yes you will be able to track your solar plant generation everyday. Modern inverters are equipped with technology for giving you a summary of daily power generation. You just need to connect your inverter to a Wi-Fi or insert a sim card through a stick provided with the inverter itself.

    Today’s solar panels are also extremely resilient against high winds and heavy rain. Most solar panels are certified to withstand hurricane force winds. In addition, the aluminum and glass casings that hold a solar panel’s solar cells are highly waterproof, even during extreme rain. 

    Therefore the solar panels can run for maximum of 25 years if taken proper care and maintenance.

    Yes solar panels comes with a warranty of 10 years. If there is any irregularities in your solar panel power generation, you can apply for a warranty claim.

    Moreover, solar panels also comes with 25 years of performance warranty. This mean that for the first 10 years, you solar panels will run at 97% of its given efficiency. For the rest of 15 years, it will run at 80% of its given efficiency. If you solar performance is unsatisfactory, you can apply for warranty claim.

    There are two main types of solar panel:

    1. Polycrystalline Solar Panels
    2. Monocrystalline Solar Panels

    Polycrystalline solar panels are made from the fragments of silicon that are melted together to form wafers. They are less expensive comparatively and have about 18% efficiency.

    Monocrystalline solar panels are made from silicon bars and cut into wafers. They have a diamond pattern. They are more expensive comparatively. Monocrystalline solar panels have the efficiency of 20%

    To calculate your solar requirement you need your latest electricity bill. Follow the below instructions:

    1. Get the data about the unit consumed by your home monthly for 8 months from your electricity bill
    2. Add the 8 months units consumed by your home. Now divide that number by 6 ( 6 is taken to account for inefficiency during monsoon seasons).
    3. A 1Kw solar plant generates an average 4 unit of energy everyday. This is 120 units for 1 Month.
    4. Now divide the number you got from step 2 with 120.
    5. The answer you get will be your solar rooftop system requirement.

    A typical solar plant if given proper cleaning and care from time to time will provide a return of upto 33% every year. Your payback period will come in just 3 – 4 years.

    Yes, of course. On grid solar rooftop system are a part of net metering system. This mean that what you generate, that you use. But if you generate more than your require, that excess energy will be supplied to grid.

    For the amount of energy that you will transfer, you will receive money from the grid at a rate of Rs 2.2 per Kw (This was decided in the new Gujarat Power Policy 2021).

    This amount that you receive for giving to grid will be valid till the first 5 Years only. After this period, you will get 75% of the tariff decided by the government at that time. I hope I have answered your question.

    To clean the panels, choose the time wisely because you do not want to hinder the solar power generation process. The best time would be during the morning before the sunrise. Alternately, you can also choose to clean your panels during the evening after the sunset.

    About 10 sq.m area is required to set up 1 KWp grid connected rooftop solar system

    That depends on the requirement of your home. Check out how to calculate your solar requirement above. Then go through Our Solar Pricing Table to get a good knowledge

    Solar panels need sunlight to generate electricity. So during the cloudy weather, when there is no sunlight. The power generation efficiency will not be as expected.

    The panels are tilted because the earth has a tilted axis towards the sun. So the solar panels have to be tilted accordingly to bring out the maximum efficiency from the light coming from the sun to your solar panels.
