A Rooftop PV System is a photo-voltaic system that has electricity-generating solar panels mounted on a rooftop of a residential or a commercial building or a structure.
Rooftop mounted systems are small compared to ground-mounted photo-voltaic power stations with capacities in the megawatt range. Rooftop PV systems on residential buildings typically feature a capacity of about 5 to 20 Kilowatts, while those mounted on commercial buildings often reach 100 kilowatts or more.
Ground Mounted solar installations conjure up an image of large swathes of land dominated by the strong dark blue of solar modules, powering businesses, factories and sustainable growth. As the appetite for solar energy grows in India, we see several land owners warming up to the idea of installing solar plants on their land, to raise their savings and to enter into PPAs. In the race to solarize our lands, the utility market has shot far ahead, standing atop the leader board.
Solar Street Lights are raised light sources which are powered by solar panels generally mounted on the lightning structure or integrated in the pole itself.
The solar panels charge a rechargeable battery, which powers a fluorescent or LED lamp during the night.
Each street light can have its own photo voltaic panel, independent of other street lights. Alternately, a number of panels can be installed as a central power source on a separate location and supply power to a number of street lights.
All-in-one type solar street lights are gaining popularity due to their compact design which incorporates all of the parts necessary in a compact manner including the battery.
A Solar-Powered Pump is a pump running on electricity generated by photo-voltaic panels or the radiated 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.Solar pumps are useful where grid electricity is unavailable and alternative sources do not provide sufficient energy.
