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

hello sir ,
my self Udit kant shekhar ,i am B.tech (EE) final year student from SKITM&G ,jaipur and now doing my summer training from REIL,jaipur(in solar panel manufaturing stream)
after completing my btech i wants to do my own solar power business for it i have design a business plan but as i am a student i have no knowledge about business world.
I inspired by solar Power business after seeing our college 500kw solar rooftop project.
sir i am interested in solar power business and want to make it my career in following steps
1.I will open installation company with contract with other solar power companies
distributor /installer/project worker for get practical knowledge,network in solar field and money for further steps
2. now i will focus on marketing of my company by providing non profit services like free auditing to builder’s projects /hospital/Hotel/colleges/petrol pumps /other organizers and send proposal with showing their profits in green buildings
3. then i will proceed for self solar plant installation company
4.after it i will focus on my self projects for villages where no electricity services are available
5. my next step is for solar panel manufacturing company because main capital cost is for panel
6. now i will forward for big solar plant projects/solar parks as power seller etc
7 with all these steps i can branched it with other business like green building manufacturer/ solar training institute/technical education college in renewable energy etc
my main vision is to make GREEN INDIA GREEN WORLD
sir now i want to know your response for my business plan
and your guidance for start my business from 0th step
in hope of your proper guidance

Curious to understand how much expectation one should have from solar power panels , what all can we light up in a house with one TV, two Air conditioner, 2 fans, auto washing machine, and lights, assuming the consumption of this.
How about only one AC, one TV, and washing machine.
All cost(panels, battery, installation etc)
Does it makes sense on saving for long term 15-20 years.

dear sir/madam, As i have went over many sites,but didnt got the right information that ,what and how my diagram would be done, Today i got your site in search engine while browsing for best solar inverters, Here are (below)my requirement ,which i need to run only on solar system without any backup power,no power required after sunset, I can say running these appliance from 7 or 8am till 5 or 6pm only (1) 1#5000btu 110vac air conditioner rated 515watt,but dont have idea about starting surge.. (2) 2 #evaporative air cooler 220vac consuming 120watt each(240watt both) (3) 1 #ceiling fan 220vac consuming 70 watt (4) 1# 80ltrs refrigerator Please figure me a diagram ,that what type of inverter and what capacity of panel required…and what else is required… Reply your soonest Thankyou

Solar Module Analyzer or Solar Module Analyzers instrument is designed to measure Solar Power in the range from 400 to 1100 nanometers. The good Spectral Range, Orientation and Angular detection of meter allow users to conduct the most precise quantitative measurements of Solar Power Radiation. The Test and Measuring Instruments is High Accuracy for Insulation Measurement and for AC Voltage Measurement.
