We are one of the best and leading solar energy companies in Kerala offering customized solutions for all energy needs. Our company makes solar products using the highest environmental and labor standards, as close to the market as possible. Using solar or photovoltaic panels will decrease your home or business dependency on the primary energy grid and, in turn, your power bill. Moreover, panels can produce more energy than your house and office need. There will be no waste as you can sell your excess electricity to the utility company for even lower energy bills. This process is popularly known as net metering. Similarly, it also lowers your electric bills and reduce your carbon footprint.

 The solar system consists of solar panels (Solar PV Modules), a mounting system, and a solar inverter with a computerized controller. They produce DC electricity from sunlight. Then the inverter converts the generated electricity into AC that can be used in the household. The automated controller is the best, ensuring optimal performance and managing the solar system. However, a battery is necessary if you want an off-the-grid solar or backup system. 

What are Solar Panels?

 A solar panel is a collection or combination of solar cells (or photovoltaic) that generates electricity with the effect of photovoltaic. They are in a grid-like pattern on the surface of the solar panels. Solar panels wear very slowly, without dirt and are clean. Considering the maximum sunlight absorption, the most common and essential location for installing solar panels is on the roof. On the contrary, if the installation on the top is not possible, they can also be mounted on the ground. Hence, one must make sure that sunlight falls on them without any hindrance.

Types of Solar Panels:

 There are two types of solar panels available in India. They are as follows.

  1. Monocrystalline Solar Panel:
    These solar panels have pure Silicon cells, and they generate high power. The Mono Perk cells with sizes 156 mm and 156 mm look blackish. They occupy less rooftop space and perform 30% better even in low light. Their efficiency rate comes around 19-22%.

  2. Polycrystalline Solar Panel:
    A traditional solar panel has multiple silicon cells and looks blueish. More importantly, it is less expensive but takes more space. The Polycrystalline solar panel has less efficiency of 14-17%.

 How Many Solar Panels Do I Need?

One of the most important questions that come to your mind is the number of solar panels needed. It depends on three key factors. They are

  • Average daily consumption of energy.
  • The number of solar panels you need for your home or business premises also depends on the sun hours in your area.
  • And finally, your actual roof size.

The average energy consumption is the most crucial factor in determining the number of solar panels. Here, the consideration is the total Kilowatt-hours (kWh) you intend to use in the future or one that you currently use. 

The number of solar energy panels needed depends on your location and the sun's hours. Moreover, there are varying amounts of sun hours in India, which will affect the number of solar panels you will need.

Your roof size is also a key factor as it will determine the roof stability and the number of panels you install that can easily fit on your roof, the energy that it will generate, and the cost.

The below table shows the approximate amounts of space you need so that it helps in generating a specific amount of energy.

Price of Solar Panel:

 The solar panel price depends on various factors like the model of the solar PV panel, its quality, capacity, technology, and manufacturer of the brand. Depending on the requirement, you can install solar panels like 10, 20, 40, 50, 75, 100, 180, 440 watts solar, and 440-530 watt shark bi-facial solar panel. The best quality solar panel price is around.₹ 40 - ₹ 85 per watt, so for a 1 kW solar panel, the maximum price is ₹ 85,000/. Similarly, the price of a 500 W solar panel is about half or 42,000/. The prices of solar panels can vary from 2022; there is an increase in solar panel price and after rising GST for Indian brands from 10 watts to 440 watts. There is a rise in GST rate from 5% to 12%,

 5 Features of Solar Panel available in Indian Markets:

The following are the five features of solar panels.

  1. Cell Technology:

The purest raw material to make Solar PV Module are Mono Crystalline Solar cells. Hence, their power generation is higher in monsoon and cloudy weather.

  1. Size of the Module:

The solar panels whose sizes are small will occupy less space on the rooftop. Therefore, smaller size panels are costly.

  1. The Thickness of the Frame:

Frame thickness matters the most as it is the second raw material that impacts the build quality of a solar panel. A solar panel of aluminum structure has almost 30 mm – 45 mm Frame thickness.

  1. Connecting Wires:

Solar panels connection is either in series or parallel that makes an array. Now you might think that what is an array? An array connects multiple solar panels. Hence, the solar must come with at least a 1-meter wire. Then, it must have an IP 68 Junction box that makes it water and dustproof.

  1. Unbreakable Glass:

Solar panels have three essential things: solar cells, aluminum frames, and transparent glass. It is more convenient if we talk about a foldable solar panel with solar glass. Thus, it is because foldable glass panels have fewer chances to break.
