Grid connected Solar Rooftop Power Plant

Solar Rooftop systems have solar panels installed on the roof of any building like residential, commercial, institutional and industrial buildings. There are two types of Rooftop Power Plants-

  • Solar Rooftop System or Off Grid Systems with storage facility using battery.

  • Grid Connected Solar Rooftop PV System.

Solar Rooftop Systems with Storage facility have battery as storage facility. The solar electricity is stored in the battery and can be utilized during night also when the sun is not available.

In Grid connected Solar Rooftop PV system the DC power generated from SPV panel is converted to AC power using power conditioning unit .Generated Power by this system during the day time is utilized fully for powering captive loads and excess power is fed to the Grid. Grid connected Solar Rooftop system is operational so long as grid is available. In case, where solar power is not sufficient due to cloud cover etc., the captive loads are served by drawing power from the grid.

Advantages of Grid-Connected Rooftop Solar System

  • 1. Electricity generation at the consumption point therefore Savings in transmission and distribution losses.

  • 2.Low gestation time

  • 3. No requirement of additional land

  • 4.Improvement of tail-end grid voltages and reduction in system congestion with higher self-consumption of solar electricity

  • 5. Local employment generation.
