Solar Panels

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

Off grid solar power system

In an off-grid pv system, power output from solar panels is stored in batteries, making it expensive; system size depends mainly on the power rating of appliances and how long you run them.

On grid solar system

Since the power output is connected to the grid without storage,grid-connected solar pv systems are more popular now. You need to check your maximum monthly usage and connected load to choose the desired system size in on-grid pv solar panels.

Hybrid solar system

Hybrid sytem is similar like a grid connected system with solar energy storage. The hybrid inverter has an extra power output to charge the storage batteries. On grid system does not produce energy when the KSEB supply is down as a safety precaution, Hybrid solar system provides power backup during such a scenario.
