Looking for a solar panel supplier ? You have come to the right place.

Inverters play a crucial role in any solar energy system and are often considered to be the brains of a project, whether it’s a 2-kW residential system or a 5-MW utility power plant. An inverter’s basic function is to “invert” the direct current (DC) output into alternating current (AC). AC is the standard used by all commercial appliances, which is why many view inverters as the “gateway” between the photovoltaic (PV) system and the energy off-taker.
Inverter technologies have advanced significantly, such that in addition to converting DC to AC, they provide a number of other capabilities and services to ensure that the inverter can operate at an optimal performance level, such as data monitoring, advanced utility controls, applications and system design engineering.

Enthusiasm For Solar Micro-Grids In Developing World Gets A Sobering Reality Check In India

Last week, India helped the world get one step closer to an international climate pact when it ratified the Paris Climate Accord. Much of India’s strategy to reduce fossil fuels relies on a transition to renewable energy, namely solar. In fact, with solar prices worldwide plummeting, many countries are placing bets on solar.

Most analysis conducted to date suggests that among various competing solar technologies the economics are best for utility-scale photovoltaic (PV) projects. But grid scale PV can only serve households actually connected to the grid. Millions of people in developing and emerging economies live without electricity, either because the grid has not reached them or because they remain too poor to pay.

Rooftop solar and solar micro-grids seem appealing as a clean solution to a crippling energy access problem that condemns these countries to low growth. Micro-grids—where a handful of homes are centrally wired to a field of solar panels—are becoming especially popular because, unlike rooftop solar, the high upfront installation costs can be spread throughout a village, making them cheaper. Often fully or partially funded by non-profits and social venture capital, solar micro-grids are popping up in villages from Africa to Bangladesh, where households are able to flick on a switch for light for the first time.

So are solar micro-grids a sustainable solution to lighting up the developing and emerging world? Unfortunately, a recent study I conducted with my colleagues in the state of Bihar, one of the poorest regions in India, suggests they may have a tough time. A mix of inefficient policy, conflicting incentives and unreliable operations can ultimately lead to a product that consumers do not want.

The first challenge is low take-up. In our study, only 20% of potential micro-grid customers signed up, even with existing capital subsidies augmented with subsidies that cut monthly usage fees in half. There are various reasons this may have happened. One reason involved the low-power nature of the micro-grid. While we might think households would (and should) be willing to pay for small amounts of electricity to be able to switch on a light at night, this was not the case. Households wanted enough electricity to power a fan or even a television. If they couldn’t get that, they were willing to do without. A separate study found a similar phenomenon in Kenya and Tanzania. As with any other product, getting people to pay requires giving them what they want – even if this means serving fewer people with the same number of solar panels.

Even where micro-grids have takers, solar is not the only game in town. In our study, solar micro-grids faced competition from generators burning a mix of diesel and kerosene. This source of electricity can be more flexible than solar, doesn’t require storage and is often cheaper. In India, a specific problem occurred because of a government subsidy program. The government provides an allotment of highly-subsidized

kerosene to households meant for lamps. But not satisfied with the inferior lamps, households are trading in their kerosene to the operators of small generator plants. The kerosene is used to power the plants, and in return the households receive cheaper electricity. So, this policy essentially subsidizes a dirty fuel burned in a high-pollution small generator, while simultaneously making it very hard for solar micro-grids to compete.

Save big by using solar energy

The Delhi government has saved nearly Rs. 6 lakh per month on its electricity bills since the Delhi Secretariat started using solar power in November.

Four months ago, the Delhi Secretariat or the Players’ Building started drawing power to the tune of 1 MW from the city’s first ground-based solar power plant at Indraprastha Power Station.

“During peak time the solar system feeds the building with over 33 per cent of its power requirement. We expect another 1 MW of supply by next month, which will further increase our savings to about Rs. 18-20 lakh,” said a government official.

The total power requirement of the secretariat is three MW and the solar power plant at Indraprastha is also being built with the same capacity. “Two MW will be completed by April. Once the plant is fully operational Players’ Building will become the first State secretariat in the country to run completely on solar energy,” said the official.

The government has partnered with the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE) to set up the plant on a vacant plot in the power station. The plant utilises latest technology including a tracker mechanism which tracks the movement of the sun for maximum output.
