SOLAR PV MODULES Solar PV Cell is converting sun light energy into an electrical energy. This technology is called as Photovoltaic technology. Number of cells group together is called as Solar PV modules. These PV modules generate DC electricity with no auxiliary components. Advantages: 1. Green Energy 2. Low or maintenance 3. Direct Generation of Electricity 4. No fuel cost 5. Renewable Energy source. 6. Easy to install Applications: 1. Solar PV Power Plants 2. Solar Street Lights 3. Solar Water Pumping systems 4. Solar Vehicles 5. Solar calculator, watches, lanterns. Available Ranges: Multi and Mono crystalline Technology: 50 Wp, 75 Wp, 100 Wp, 150 Wp, 200 Wp, 250W SOLAR ROOF TOP POWER PLANT A Rooftop Photovoltaic Power Plant, or Rooftop PV System, is a photovoltaic system that has its electricity-generating solar panels mounted on the rooftop of a residential or commercial building or structure. The various components of such a system include photovoltaic modules, mounting systems, cables, solar inverters and other electrical accessories Features • Green Energy, No Pollution, Eco Friendly • Low Maintenance • Suitable for Lighting, Fan and TV load • Netmetering Facility • Excess Power can Export to Grid Advantages • Low maintenance and Low operating cost • No interruption to operations • No disposal costs for the existing roof sealing • Contributes to meeting National Energy Saving Targets for CO2 reduction • Receipt of government subsidies and favorable energy efficiency classification in energy certificates. • Energy security by generating your own requirement of power Applications: • Houses, Apartments • Industries / Organizations • Educational Institutions • Government buildings: Available Ranges : 1kWp to 500 kWp SOLAR WATER HEATER – Evacuated Tube Collector A solar water heater consists of a collector to collect solar energy and an insulated storage tank to store hot water. The solar energy incident on the absorber panel coated with selected coating transfers the hat to the riser pipes underneath the absorber panel. The water passing through the riser gets heated up and is delivered the storage tank. The re-circulation of the same water through absorber panel in the collector raises the temperature to 80 C (Maximum) in a good sunny day. The total system with solar collector, storage tank and pipelines is called solar hot water system. Advantages: • Low Investment • Payback Period 3-5 Years. • Long life span of more than 10 years. Useful for cooking , washing, bathing round the year Evacuated Tube Collector Water heating system: Features: 1. Green Energy, No Pollution, Eco Friendly 2 . Design to perform in all season and all regions 3. Compact puff injection technique for better heat reiteration 4. Maintenance free, Zero running cost 5. Pressurized and heat exchange models also available Capacity Range: 70 LPD to 10,000 LPD Applications: 1. Houses, Apartments 2. Industries / Organizations 3. Educational Institutions 4. Hospitals SOLAR WATER PUMPING SYSTEM A Solar-Powered Pump is a pump running on electricity generated by photovoltaic panels or the thermal energy available from collected sunlight as opposed to grid electricity or diesel run water pumps. The operation of solar powered pumps is more economical mainly due to the lower operation and maintenance costs and has less environmental impact than pumps. Features: • Efficient use of Solar Power Monitor • Pressure Cut-off system. • Current Overload Protection • Thermal Overload Protection • Dry run Protection • Low Power Protection Advantages: • Most Economical type water pumping system. • Since external wires are eliminated, risk of accidents is minimized. • Green energy, No pollution, Eco friendly • Separate parts of solar system can be easily carried to the remote areas. Applications: • Agriculture and Irrigation places, especially where grid electricity is unavailable and alternative sources. • Solar powered water pumps can deliver drinking water as well as water for livestock or irrigation purposes • Community based irrigation Capacity Range: 1H.P, 1.5 H.P, 2 H.P, 3 H.P, 5 H.P, 7.5 H.P, 10 H.P SOLAR STREET LIGHTING SYSTEM Solar Street Lighting Systems offers high efficiency, long operating life and low voltage operation which ideal for solar. Solar street lights were initially used in remote locations and disaster prone areas. Features: • Power LED's for high brightness and low power consumption • Auto dusk to dawn function • Suitable for all areas, Works independently • Green Energy, No Pollution, Eco Friendly • Weather proof luminaries and battery box with locking provision Advantages: • Solar street lights are independent of the utility grid. Hence, the operation costs are minimized. • Automatic lamp ON / OFF Function (Dusk to Dawn Function) • Solar street lights require much less maintenance compared to conventional street lights. • Since external wires are eliminated, risk of accidents is minimized. • Separate parts of solar system can be easily carried to the remote areas Types of Solar Street Lighting System • Centralized Solar street lighting system. • Stand-alone Solar street lighting system. Applications: • Rural Areas. Especially where, electrical utility is not available. • Apartments • Industries / Organizations • Educational Institutions • Hospitals • Government buildings • Restaurant, Resorts Capacity Ranges: 10 Watts to 75 Watts
