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.
Housing Society Rooftop Solar Systems in India
Out of all the monthly expenses that a housing society has to pay for the common area activities, electricity bills are the biggest expenditure.
It's the moral obligation of the solar power housing association to make residents aware of the fact that using solar power for housing societies can reduce the common area electricity cost substantially.
The rooftop area of a housing society is owned by its RWA (Residents Welfare Association). The Corpus (the maintenance charges that the residents pay every month) collected every month amounts to crores of rupees in a span of 10 years or so.
When the solar power housing committee (RWA) invests that Corpus in installing a solar power system for housing society, they're practically investing in free electricity generation to power up common area amenities like water pumps, lifts, lights in parking and on every floor, and so much more!
We, at SolarSquare, understand that the RWA requires headache-free solar installation; hence, we offer a 5-year AMC (Annual Maintenance Contract). It means, we ensure the regular cleaning and maintenance of the solar panel for housing society for the coming five years.
Once you're our client, whether or not your rooftop solar power system for housing society is generating electricity is our headache, not yours!
How solar power works?
A solar power system for housing society works the same way it does for an individual house. The only difference is that the power being generated here is huge.
- When light falls on the solar panel for housing society, the PV cells convert that light into DC power.
- That DC power is converted into AC power with the help of a solar inverter.
- AC power is fed into a bi-directional meter set up to handle the common area power needs of the housing society.
The bi-directional meter keeps a record of the number of units imported from the grid and the number of excess units exported to the grid.
If there’s been additional power from the DISCOM that has been used above the solar power that’s generated, you will have to pay for that imported electricity.
If the power generated by the solar system for housing society has been more than the power consumed, and you supplied electricity to the grid, DISCOM will pay you for the power you provided.
Benefits of using solar power for your housing society
Solar energy for housing society is free. What you’ll invest as the upfront cost will be recovered within 3 to 5 years, and you’ll continue to get free electricity for almost 25 years.
The benefits that the society draws from installing a solar power housing system are:
- A dramatic reduction in the common area utilities electricity bill.
- The reduction of the carbon footprint.
- Better rooftop maintenance.
- A cooler rooftop due to the installation of the solar power system for housing society. Needless to say, if the roof is cooler, so is the rest of the building.
The savings on the common area electricity bill can be used for other activities like amping up the security, installing a children's play area, rainwater harvesting, and much more.
The benefits that the residents draw from the installation of a rooftop solar system are:
- The monthly CAM (common area maintenance charges) they pay for common area electricity reduces.
- They get to enjoy the pride of dwelling in a society that has adopted a sustainable way of living.
- The sale value of a property with rooftop solar is higher than normal property rates in the same locality. So, homeowners get to sell or rent their property at higher prices.
Why choose SolarSquare for installing solar power housing systems?
When the solar power housing committee decides to use solar energy for housing society, it's not their individual decision. Since Corpus is actually the money of the residents, the management committee must have the approval of the residents.
The route to getting the approval of the residents to allow the installation of solar power housing systems can be awfully long. There's an Annual General Meeting (AGM) where the RWA has to get the much-needed approval.
Since it can be quite a task to bring all the residents on the same page, we help the solar power housing association to prepare for the AGM.
At SolarSquare, we take pride in the fact that we take a consultative approach. We help the management committee educate the residents about the monetary benefits of installing solar power housing systems.
Choosing SolarSquare means:
- Getting a 5-year AMC contract.
- Having the guidance of engineers with expertise in designing solar systems for high-rise buildings where the wind speed is very high.
- Receiving the best suggestions on the types of solar modules and technology that'll be most beneficial for your society.
