Partnership Opportunities in Rooftop Solar Business: Maharashtra

With the net-metering mechanism implemented in Maharashtra and a demonstration of it in of our sites in Pune (4 kW Residential Project), Sunkalp Energy feels sure about expanding its Rooftop Solar market in Maharashtra. It’s the next hotbed for solar- except for the slight space constraint. With Sunkalp’s in-house capability to build super-structures, space constraint is taken care of as well. Owners of roofs, almost never have a reason to doubt its success in Maharashtra. (more…)

Over-sizing of Solar Arrays

Over-sizing is become a popular theme in solar power plant design in India as there is an increased pressure to drive down costs in installations. Let us understand the technical benefits and dangers of over-sizing solar arrays.

1. Advantages of Oversizing Solar Arrays

1.1 Higher Yield

As all solar EPCs know, a solar array typically never generates at more than 80% of the nameplate capacity or kWp. Thus a 10 kWp solar array, at any given time in Indian conditions would rarely exceed 8 kWp. Thus if we can connect more than 10 kWp of solar panels to a system with a 10 kVA inverter, the net generation or yield of electricity will ofcourse be higher. (more…)
