Solar Energy Basics

Sun as source of energy has been used by mankind from million years ago in various forms or other. People around the world have been using solar energy for primary purpose of drying, fermentation, salt extraction etc. Electricity using solar energy is produced using Photo Voltaic (PV) panels made of diffused silicon wafers which are stacked to form solar panels. Silicon is mounted beneath non-reflective glass to produce PV panels. Solar photons (particle representing quantum of light) when strike on solar panels it forces free electrons from negative charge layer. These electrons are then sucked by positive charge layer which results in flow of electrons resulting in electricity generation.

Solar technology has been around from as long as 1839 when Alexandre Becquerel observed photovoltaic effect. Over the years, scientists have worked on improving the efficiency of solar cells to bring down the cost of producing electricity using solar cells in comparison to conventional energy sources.

Our commitment to solar energy

S.N.R.E. focus on solar energy as an alternate source of energy reflects in its unique range of services and products. We are eager to participate and work with you in solving your energy problems by using innovate applications of solar technology. We believe that with availability of sun through most parts of the year, India is poised to be world leader in generation of electricity using solar energy.

As per The Jawaharlal Nehru National Solar Mission guidelines, India has taken an ambitious target to deploy 20,000 MW of grid connected solar power by 2022. To read more about Government of India initiatives on promotion of solar power, click here to download our free e-book.

Sloar Roof Top Installation

The Renewable energy independent power producers program (REIPP) only made provision for solar PV greater than 1 MW, which effectively excludes most rooftop systems. In spite of this the past year has seen a great increase in the number of private rooftop PV systems installed on commercial/industrial premises at the cost of the owners. Ostensibly for generating electricity for own use, these systems are nonetheless grid tied, and could be capable of feeding surplus power back into the grid under low load conditions. A number of residential rooftop grid tied PV systems have also come to light, using nett-metering by agreement with the relevant municipalities. Several municipalities have drawn up procedures for connecting such systems, and NERSA has also produced documents covering such situations. So it would seem that in spite of exclusion from the large scale REIPP program, privately installed small scale grid tied rooftop solar is alive and well.
