Bangalore's daily power demand is about one-third of the state's total power consumption. The average 2/3 bedroom home consumes approximately 15,000 Watts (0.015 MW) of power every day. Depending on the amount of unshaded roof space available in your home, you could cut your dependence on the electricity grid.
What you need to know
What is solar power? How is it generated?
Solar Power is the generation of electricity by photovoltaic cells placed on a rooftop or similar area with good access to sunlight.
There are three essential components in the standard Solar Power System:
- Photovoltaic Panels: These are the photovoltaic cells that convert solar energy to electricity. This component has the greatest area requirement, with the number and size of panels corresponding to the energy requirements of the building.
- Inverter: The inverter converts the Direct Current (DC) power generated by the panels into usable Alternating Current (AC) for use in the building. Inverters are available in a variety of capacities, depending on the expected electricity load.
- Battery: The battery stores the electricity generated by the panels, which is generated during sunlight hours, for use during the night or whenever no power is being generated. Battery sizes vary, and are usually chosen based on the night load.
Why consider solar power?
Environment-friendly and convenient energy production: Unlike energy generated by thermal power plants dependent on fuels, solar energy has no costs associated with the source of energy. It does not generate any gases or disposable waste as in the case of other common grid-based power sources. Unlike hydel and wind power (which are also green and clean power sources), solar power is available throughout the year and is not drastically affected by adverse weather conditions. A rooftop solar energy system could save an average of a tonne of CO2 per year, more than 30 tonnes in its lifetime.
Freedom from power cuts and dependence on the utility grid: A well-designed solar electricity system provides uninterrupted flow of electricity to a residence, whether as a complete system or as a supplement to the utility grid.
Long-term cost benefits: Setting up of a solar energy production system represents a large capital expense, usually costing a few lakh rupees. However, when considered over a long term, a solar power system guarantees production of electricity over a period between 15-20 years with minimal to no maintenance, compared to the fluctuating rates and availability of electricity through the utility grid.
