Solar plants which are directly connected to the grid and can import and export energy from and to the grid are called grid-connected solar power plants. These plants are also called On-Grid Solar Power Plants.
To keep a track of various parameters of the solar plant and to act as a trusted link between consumer and the distribution company of the area, a bi-directional meter/net-meter is used which tracks all the useful parameters.
Consumer has to pay only for the net energy.
This type of solar plant arrangement should be installed by those, who live in an area well connected to the utility grid.
Huge savings in the form of subsidies, returns and Generation Based Incentives (GBI) can be met, using this arrangement of solar power plant.
Solar plants which may or may not be connected to the utility grid but contain batteries for backup are called off-grid solar power plants. Sometimes, a diesel generator input is provided in place of utility grid to charge batteries in the absence of solar energy and grid.
There are several configurations for this type of solar plant according to priority. These are:
- Solar > Battery > Grid
- Solar > Grid > Battery
- Battery > Solar > Grid
Consumer can choose any of the above configurations according to their requirements.
This type of solar plant arrangement is apt for those, who live in places where electricity is insufficient or unavailable as 24-hour back-up is provided by this system.
Solar street lights are raised off-grid solar plants which convert solar energy into electricity to run a bulb or LED mounted on a pole. They have battery backup which can be sized according to the needs.
These come in various configurations such as:
- With separate LED, battery and inverter
- With LED and battery in-built in one box and an inverter
- With all three components in same unit
- With LED and inverter in-built in one box and battery
Consumer can choose one of these according to their needs.
We also design systems for consumers who have needs other than the ones mentioned above.
