Solar panels installations

Solar power plants are the best renewable energy source for domestic consumers nowadays, thanks to the new technologies and government subsidies. There are mainly three categories of a solar system for domestic consumers those are off-grid, on-grid types, and hybrid solar systems

Leading Indian manufacturers of solar panels are WareeVikram, TATA Power, Adani, etc., since basic materials required for manufacture are imported mainly from China, international brands like Panasonic, Canadian Solar, Trina, Jinko, etc., have been able to sell their panels close to the price of locally made panels.

Despite the better efficiency and performance offered by the imported brands, many Keralites prefer to go for Indian made panels due to the slightly discounted price along with the service and support they expected to get during the 25 years of warranty

Hybrid solar system

A hybrid system is similar to an on-grid system with solar energy storage. The hybrid inverter has a DC power output to charge the storage batteries, since grid-connected system does not produce energy during KSEB power failures as a safety precaution, the hybrid solar system generates power and recharges the batteries during such a scenario

FAQ

Where to install your Solar Panel System ?

Open terrace of your house measuring 100 Sq-ft is enough to produce 1 kW solar power if the solar system area is under direct sunlight, not covered by shadows, and inclined southwards at 16-18 degrees,additional frame should be fabricated according to the module design parameters . Monocrystalline panels got more efficiency than Polycrystalline solar panels

Where to buy solar panels in Kerala ?

There are many distributors of solar systems in Kerala, Since installations made under the schemes from KSEB are only eligible to get up to 40% discount; majority of home owners naturally prefer KSEB plans.

How long it may take to complete the installation by kseb ?

From the 2.8 lakhs application received till 2020 for the roof top solar program 4600 applications were selected after the screening process , Kseb plans to start the installation from first quarter of 2021.

Why KSEB solar programme get delayed ?

The delay in the installation is due to the laborious screening process. Parameters such as flat rooftops with no external interferences such as tall trees, road access to the site, network connectivity and assurance that building owners would not undertake any rooftop modifications in the next five years were considered

1, KSEB has not provided enough information regarding space occupancy rights,performance warranty,maintenace obligation conditions,contract withdrawal options etc, this create confusion among customers causing delay in project execution.

2, Applicant has to provide additional structure incase their roof top is not flat asper the design requirements, this addititional expenses often distracts the cutomers and delays the project execution.
