Alternate Energy Systems
HOW IT WORKS
A rooftop solar pv system, is a power system that uses the limitless energy from the sun to provide clean and usable power. The Photo Voltaic cells convert the sunlight into electrical energy. When multiple such cells are connected in a series parallel connection, the output power is enough to cater electrical loads.
TYPES OF PV SYSTEMS
This system stores energy from the sun, the most popular power storage device today for such systems is the deep discharge solar battery. Power from the batteries is then converted to AC power with a help of an inverter. Such systems are extremely suitable for applications where grid supply is intermittent or unavailable.
This system integrates the rooftop pv system with the utility grid. The output from the solar v system is connected just before the utility energy meter. During the daytime, when the sun is shining, the pv system generates power and feeds the electrical loads. Any power requirement over and above of that generated by solar pv system is seamlessly drawn in from the utility grid. While such systems do NOT provide power at night or during emergency as backup, they reduce the utility electricity bill drastically.
HOW NET METERING WORKS?
Net metering is an agreement wherein; the solar PV system owner is allowed to sell excess solar energy to the utility company or buy deficit energy from the utility company using a meter to track this energy exchange. The meter used for such systems are called NET METERS.
WHY CHOOSE TO GO SOLAR ONLY ON ROOFTOPS
A large part of landscaped buildings and office complexes can be utilized to plant solar trees. Triton Greentech designs, installs and maintains such solar trees, that help you go green in a pleasantly aesthetic way.
