Frequently Asked Questions
Why should I go solar?
If you want to save money from the sun, Solar is the best investment for you. Solar allows you to save on your monthly electric bills plus it also allows you to save the planet by going green. Solar energy is a true form of renewable clean energy which leads to zero pollution (air, noise, land) and emits no greenhouse gases mitigating climate change.
Is solar power safe?
Yes. The electricity produced by a solar power system is no different than the electricity you get from your electricity distribution company. The only difference is the source. Moreover, it is among the safest source of electricity consumption because it is neither hazardous nor does it release any toxic or harmful gases during production.
What is a rooftop solar system?
You can use the empty space on your roof to install a solar system which will convert sunlight into electricity for your house or building. Such a system is referred to as a rooftop solar system.
What do I need to install a rooftop solar system?
All you need to qualify for a solar system is - empty space on your roof and access to your rooftop. Just fill the project enquiry form on our website and our team will contact you to discuss your requirement. Once the project is finalised, we will take care of your entire plant design, installation and maintenance.
What is the life of a rooftop solar system?
The Solar Plant life is 25 years. The main components are solar panels and inverters. Solar panels have a warranty of 25 years and inverter warranty ranges from 5-12 years.
Do Solar Rooftop projects have a high maintenance cost?
A Solar Rooftop module comprises minimal moving parts and hence has very low maintenance cost. SolarSquare Energy provides first 5-year maintenance free of cost to clients ensuring a hassle free experience for all our customers.
Can Solar projects damage my roof?
SolarSquare Energy has a UL certification (one of the highest quality and safety standards in the world) and ensures that no damage to the existing structures takes place during the installation or running of the solar plant. We use a multitude of techniques like non-penetrating structures and waterproofing solutions to ensure your roof’s integrity.
Do I need to clean my Solar plant?
It is a good practice to clean the solar panels 1-2 times a month. It is safer to clean the panels early in the morning or at night when no incident sun rays are present and the power plant is not producing any electricity. You can simply use a clean wet cloth, soft nylon brush or sponge to wipe the surface but ensure the panels are clear of any moisture. Don’t use metal brushes or detergents as these may streak the glass of the panel.
How much does a solar Plant cost?
The cost of a solar plant depends on its size, configuration and degree of supporting structures required. We provide you multiple options to choose from, designed specifically to meet your requirements.
What is the break-even period for Solar rooftop projects?
Rooftop solar projects are among the most lucrative investments for industrial, commercial and residential projects. The breakeven is achieved in 2-4 years itself, while you enjoy savings for the project life of 25 years.
Are there any subsidies provided by the government for solar projects?
There are no subsidies available for commercial entities. For residential rooftop solar projects, subsidies are released by state governments intermittently. Whenever subsidy is applicable, SolarSquare Energy provides it upfront to the customer in the project cost itself. At present, the Madhya Pradesh government has released a lucrative solar subsidy for the residential sector. The various slabs of subsidy are -
How do I avail subsidy provided by the Madhya Pradesh government?
SolarSquare Energy provides the subsidy upfront as a direct discount to the consumers to ensure a hassle free experience.
Overview of rooftop solar panels
India is the tropical goldmine of solar power generation since it receives almost 300 days of uninterrupted sunlight.
The electricity for which the DISCOM charges up to Rs. 8/unit, when generated by a solar panel for home, is free. That's because sunlight doesn't cost a penny.
We, at SolarSquare, offer rooftop panel systems ranging from 2 KW to 10 KW and higher for homes and housing societies.
Being the third-largest solar installer in the country with hands-on experience of installing 90 MW worth of solar panels on roof already, we believe that every residential rooftop - whether an RCC roof or a metal sheet roof - has the scope to go Solar.
Even if you consume 500 units of electricity/month, with a 4 KW solar plant for home installed on your residential rooftop, you can easily save up to Rs. 44,000 every year on your electricity bills (assuming that the electricity tariff in your state is Rs. 8/unit).
Solar installation requirements
Other than the fact that your rooftop should be easily accessible, there are a couple of installation requirements that are mandatory if you want to install a solar panel for home the right way.
#1. A mandatory rooftop inspection by experts
Did you know that if your rooftop is covered with shadows from surrounding trees or towers between 9 AM to 4 PM, your solar system for home won't be able to generate as much electricity from solar power as it should because the solar panels will be shaded?
Our expert solar consultants can figure out which spot on the roof will receive the maximum sunlight, what should the ideal height of the mounting structures be to avoid shadows, and which type of solar panel for home would be the best for you according to the type of roof you have.
Solar experts also confirm that your roof is strong enough and wide enough to support the chemical anchoring of the heavy solar mounting structures.
#2. Determining the right tilt angle for the solar panel for home
Ideally, India receives the maximum Sunlight in the Southwards direction. Since it’s not a standardized construction parameter, all residential rooftop buildings do not face South by default.
Hence, the mounting angle has to be such that the solar panel for home on your rooftop receives maximum sunlight. The ideal tilt angle for a rooftop panel in South India is 10 degrees. In North India, the tilt angle for solar panels should be more than 20 degrees.
Working of a solar plant for home
A solar system has a careful arrangement of many solar panels connected in series. As soon as the sunlight finds the PV cells in the solar module (rooftop panel), it gets converted into DC power.
A solar inverter is then used to convert the DC power into alternating current (AC) to supply electricity to run home appliances and meet other energy requirements.
The solar-supplied electricity is fed into a bidirectional meter because:
- The solar panel for home on your rooftop could be generating more power than you’re consuming.
- The bidirectional meter will supply excessive power to the DISCOM.
- The net metering system will keep a record of the electricity that was supplied to the DISCOM.
At the end of every month, you’ll actually be paid by DISCOM for the power you supplied them with (that is, if the power generated was more than the power you consumed).
Solar panel for home price in India
Everybody wants to know the details about ‘solar panel for home price’ in the country. We will walk you through the price range. But first things first – why is there a variation in the ‘solar panels for home cost’. Here are some reasons for cost variations that you might encounter:
- Types of solar panels are different.
- Different solar panels have different efficiency rates.
- Different installation companies offer different quality of services.
