Hi all, Our apartment association is considering going for partial solar solution to meet its needs and below is our requirement – Our monthly association EB usage is around 700 units. We are looking at installing a 2.5 KW solar system (with hybrid inverter) that will help us eliminate day time genset backup during summers. We would like this system to supply to 2 fans connected in each of 15 flats in our apartment to the common (association) EB grid. We would like to explore the feasibility of net-metering since beyond the backup, we have scope to route back to the grid and save on costs – esp. since we are falling in the highest slab of EB tariffs. Our association EB connection is a 3-phase system that supplies for a lift, motor and common lights. We are not looking for battery bank backup because of the above exclusive day time requirement. Location: Hyderabad, Andhra Pradesh Some questions we have are: 1. We are assuming that ‘Islanding Protection’ will ensure that in scenario of grid-failure or load shedding, our solar system would still be active within our apartment for the select points we have planned for. Is this a correct assumption or is it total shutdown/blackout if the grid fails? 2. Is the above setup feasibile with net-metering? Esp. since our solar generation is partial and is required to meet the daytime backup for select points (for which wiring is already in place – for genset backup). We only want to avoid daytime genset backup and save on the cost – esp. during summer load shedding. 3. Is the 20% AP state subsidy announced only for net-meter or is it for the entire system? Is this subsidy available for off-grid solutions as well? 4. MNRE indicative costs are way less than what it practically works out!! MNRE guideline cost for a SPV system without battery is Rs.100 per watt. 2.5 KW (without battery) guideline cost = 100*2500 = 250000 After MNRE 30% subsidy = Rs.175000 If AP state subsidy of 20% is applicable = Rs. 140000 I have since enquired with three top companies and I am getting quotations raging from 3Lakhs to 3.5 Lakhs!!! And this is post subsidy, which is makes it almost twice the guideline cost!! Am I missing something or is there plenty of scope for negotiations :)? Thanks in advance for you expert opinions/suggestions. Thanks & Best Regards, Srinivasan M

I have Sukam Falcon Plus 12v Inverter and normal 150Ah SuKam Bazooka Tubular battery.
I wish to install 500Wh Solar panel.
In online, found solar panels with 100W, 250W, 360W and 12V, 24V, 48V.
My question is , can I connect any solar panel to my Inverter? Will sukam falcon plus has any restriction on that?
