Why a grid-tie system?
Mr. Harwinder Singh is located in Punjab. His office named ‘Solarium solar power system’ is located in Punjab. They have been selling, distributing and spreading the knowledge of solar with Su-Kam for a while now. Recently, Hawrinder on his regular visits around Punjab, stumbled upon a family that wanted to reduce their electricity bills. The area where this home is located in is blessed with continuous electricity supply. Mr. Ravil Singh, who is the owner of this home usually received a monthly electricity bill of INR 2000.
Harwinder advised Ravil that in order to reduce his electricity bills and bring it to almost zero, he should go in for an on-grid system. Since power is available at almost all times, so it is advisable to install a grid-tie system here.
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 it essentially a one-time investment and a lifetime of advantage.
Mr. Harwinder installed the following in Ravil’s home—
How does net metering work?
The concept of selling back solar energy to the electricity board is called ‘Net metering’. Let us understand this with an example.
In this case, the solar panels will generate approximately 10 units per day on an average, i.e. about 300 units of electricity per month. So let’s take, for example, that this home uses 200 units out of 300 units from solar power to run the load and exports the rest of 100 units to the electricity board. He also imports 100 units from the electricity board to run his load.
So instead of paying for 400 (300+100), Ravil will not be required to pay anything as he exported the 100 units that he used from the electricity board from solar power. So essentially his electricity bill is zero. If he exported more than 100 units to the board, then it will be added to his next bill and those units will again be subtracted from the units he imported from the board.
This is the net metering concept.
The net metering and subsidy given by the government make solar power a very cost effective and affordable solution for one and all.
We wish Ravil and his family all the best for his future with Su-Kam and solar power and hope that more people take inspiration from such live examples. Solar is not the future, solar is our present.
