Solar Home in Kerala Runs on Both Grid-tie and Off-grid Solar Systems. How?

Why A Grid-tie System?

Mr. James is located in Kerala. He has been selling, distributing and spreading the knowledge of solar with Su-Kam for a while now. James recently came across an enthusiastic customer and he was excited to share his story with us.

Jimmy and his family live in Kerala, and are old Su-Kam customers. They had decided to solarize their home with Su-Kam’s grid-tie inverter. In Kerala, there isn’t a problem of power cuts like there is in other rural parts of India. So after proper consultation, Jimmy decided to solarize his home.

Recently Jimmy decided to upgrade his existing system to a higher capacity solar system so that he could comfortable run his entire home load on solar power. And so he approached Mr. James from creative business solution and asked for his advice.

James then suggested to upgrade his grid-tie inverter from a 2KW system to a 5KW system.


How Is a Grid-tie Inverter Better Than a Regular Inverter?

Grid-tie inverters are amazingly designed machines that basically enable you to feed back the excess solar energy generated to the grid and earn money. Excess solar energy means the energy you don’t use to run your load.

Grid-tie inverters are always connected to the grid. One cannot install grid tie inverters in areas that do not receive any mains supply. As compared to an off-grid system, a grid-tie system also provides freedom from battery maintenance making essentially a one-time investment and a lifetime of advantage.

Mr. James then installed the following in Jimmy’s home:

Technical Specifications:

  1. Su-Kam’s solar panels – 5KW
  2. Su-Kam’s Grid-tie Inverter – 5KW
  3. Average production of the month – 25units


Mr. Jimmy says, ‘I had previously installed 2KW grid tied inverter in my home. It worked perfectly for quite a while and seeing positive results I wanted to upgrade the system to a higher capacity. And so Su-Kam’s distributor James suggested that I install a 5KW grid-tie inverter. I also have a 5KW Su-kam off-grid solar PCU in my home that is running perfectly. I have to say my life has changed after installing these solar systems.’

We wish Mr. Jimmy and his family all the best with his future with Su-kam and solar power.
