2. Why should you go “Green”?
Global Warming: There are a lot of factors catering to Global Warming
and one of the most significant one is “Thermal Power Plants”.
Thermal Power Plants use coal and water to generate electricity.
3. Why should you go “Green”?
Contributing factors to “Global Warming”.
Air Pollution: Coal combustion releases many toxic substances like
Carbon dioxide, Nitrogen oxide, sulfur dioxide, mercury and many others
which has been the main causes of various respiratory and
cardiovascular diseases in humans.
Water Pollution: Thermal Power Plants converts water to steam to generate
electricity and the remaining waste water is pumped back to
lakes/oceans which usually is 5-8 degrees hotter than the water that
receives it, creating a “Thermal Pollution” which affects marine life.
Waste heat: Much of the heat produced from burning coal is wasted. A
typical coal power plant uses only 33-35 percent of the coal's heat to
produce electricity. The majority of the heat is released into the
atmosphere or absorbed by the cooling water.
4. Why should you go “Solar”?
Solar energy is one of the fastest
growing and environmentally
sustainable trends in renewable
Light and heat from the sun is
converted into electricity using
photovoltaic (PV) solar panels
installed on the roof.
Energy efficient homes and
businesses know that solar energy is
a smart investment that will benefit
them in the long run.

6. Advantages of Solar Energy.
Sustainable energy: The sun is
an infinite natural source of
energy. Unlike fossil fuels it will
never run out.
No carbon footprint: Solar
systems produce zero
emissions (gasses, smoke) or
Solar energy credits: When
you produce more energy
than you need, the utility
company will buy back the
Solar energy systems are
customizable to the sizes and
needs of each home or building.
7. Advantages of Solar Energy.
Over its expected 35 year life the 1 KW solar
panel system will provide equivalent CO2
reduction as planting 145 trees !!
Each KWh of electricity from a coal fired plant
uses approx 1 Kg of coal, so this system saves
burning of 8 Kgs of coal per day per home. In a
year it reduces release of 2000 Kgs of Carbon
8. Advantages of Solar Energy.
Each kWh (Kilowatt Hour) of electricity
produced by Coal Fired electricity
uses 2.5 liters of water. By installing a
1Kw Home Solar Panel System you will
be saving the environment around
3,750 liters of water every year !!
Every year 20 lakhs people die in India due
to pollution related diseases like asthma,
lung cancer, blood pressure.... However the
cost to treat pollution related diseased in
India is estimated to be more than Rs. 10,000
9. Advantages of Solar Energy.
1.) It’s good for the environment.
2.) Earn a greater return on investment.
3.) Solar Energy systems are durable.
4.) Solar can not only save you money but also can
make you money!
5.) Solar has a fixed energy cost.
6.) You can use your Solar Energy all day.
7.) No need to be dependent on grid.
10. How does Solar Power System Work.
Types of Solar Inverter:
There are basically two types of Solar Inverter.
1. Stand alone or Off grid solar Inverter.
2. Grid tie Inverter.
11. How does Solar Power Systems Work.
Stand alone or Off grid solar Inverter:
Stand-alone PV systems are designed to operate independent of the
electric utility grid, and are generally designed and sized to supply certain
DC and/or AC electrical loads.
With an inverter to power AC loads
Best suited for Remote Electrification requirement, with 1-2 days of
For systems with no battery the energy is used immediately like in water
pump application. only works when it's sunny
Common applications are direct power to DC loads, water pumping and

13. How does Solar Power Systems Work.
Grid tie Inverter:
Grid Tie System is comparatively the simple but best suitable for the area
where utility is reliable and well maintained
Grid-Connected systems can supply solar power to your Load and use
utility power as a backup.
As long as there is enough electricity flowing in from your PV system, no
electricity will flow in from the utility company.
If your system is generating more power than you are using, the excess
will flow back into the grid, turning your meter backwards.
15. How does Solar Power Systems Work.
1. Modules – solar electric collectors. 3 basic types in the marketplace: Mono
crystalline, poly crystalline, thin film.
2. Charge Controller – regulates the power going to the Inverter / batteries
3. Inverter – converts the DC power produced by the CHARGE
CONTROLLER to AC. Vise-a Versa it can convert AC power to DC for battery
charging. Same Inverter can also EXPORT power to Grid.
4. Batteries – Stores DC power
16. Frequently asked questions.
Q). How does grid tie solar installation works?
A). There are three major components of grid-tie solar installation: solar
panels, grid-tie solar inverter and bidirectional meter (optional).
When sunlight falls on solar panels, they generate DC electricity. This
electricity goes to grid-tie solar inverter where it gets converted into usable
AC electricity. It then enters the main power supply of the building and
powers all connected electrical load. Any excess energy generated is fed
back to the grid via bi-directional meter which helps keep track of electricity
taken from the grid and fed back to it.
Q). What happens to the grid tie solar installation when grid fails?
A). As the name suggests, grid-tie solar inverters are connected to the grid
and cannot work without the grid. When the grid fails, system also fails to
generate any electricity.
Q). What happens to the grid tie solar installation in the absence of the sun?
A). In absence of sun, solar panels cannot make any electricity so electricity is
taken from the grid to power connected load.
17. Frequently asked questions.
Q). How can we make savings with grid tie solar installation?
A). You save money by installing grid-tie solar inverter because you power the
electrical load through solar i.e. you do not take anything from grid. This way
you make savings on your electricity bill. Another way to make money
through grid-tie solar is to sell surplus energy to the state electricity board. In
Karnataka you will get paid Rs.9.56/unit as per net-metering policy.

Q). Who should go for grid tie solar installation?
A). Areas that get good and reliable power supply, but expensive electricity
bill should go for grid-tie solar.
Grid-tie solar is particularly good for establishments that function during the
day such as schools and offices because they operate during the sunshine
hours. They can generate and use all the electricity they need with grid-tie
States where net-metering policy has been implemented should also think
about grid-tie solar because they can get paid for selling solar electricity
back to the grid.
18. Frequently asked questions.
Q). How does off-grid solar installation works?
A). A typical off-grid solar installation consists of solar panels, solar inverter,
charge controller and battery. When sunlight falls on solar panels, they
generate DC electricity. This goes to the inverter to get converted into usable
AC electricity to power the connected load. Surplus DC gets stored in battery
for future use. The solar inverter has an inbuilt solar charge controller which is
connected to the battery. It makes sure that right amount of voltage and
current are delivered to charge the battery. Solar panels can sometime
generate very high amount of voltage which can be harmful for the battery.
They also prevent backflow of current from battery to solar panel during
Q). How does off-grid solar installation works when there is no sun?
A). In the absence of sun, solar panels cannot make electricity so the solar
inverter uses solar energy stored in battery to power connected electrical
19. Frequently asked questions.
Q). Can I convert my ordinary inverter to solar?
A). YES, absolutely, All you need is external solar charge controller and solar
panels (Solar conversion kit) this works with any brand of UPS/Inverter.
Q). Can solar work in cold and cloudy weather?
A). You would be surprised to know that solar panels can actually work very
well even when temperature is between 15 to 25 degrees Celsius. This is
because solar panels need maximum sunlight and not maximum heat in
order to generate solar electricity. India is blessed with an average of 300
sunny days in a year so solar panels give good performance in Indian
Q). How much roof space is needed for solar installation?
A). To give you an approximate 1kw system requires 12-15 square meters of
shadow free space. Make sure that solar panels are not shadowed by trees
otherwise they will not be able to function to their fullest potential.
