Frequently Asked QuestionsFAQ
All functions including supply chain, value chain, project scheduling, manufacturing, services and spares, technology, R&D, etc. are integrated to give a complete solutions package.
1.How much area is required to install a rooftop solar system?
1 kWp solar system requires approximately 10 sq. m (or 100 sq. ft) of shadow free area. Therefore, one 1 MWp (1000 kWp) solar system would require 10,000 sq. m / 1,00,000 sq. ft / 3 acres of shadow free area.
2.What is the cost of a 1 MW solar system?
1 MWp (1000 kWp) solar system would cost around 5-6 crores, including all components, installation and commissioning, delivery and taxes
3.What is the installation and commissioning period for a 1 MW solar power plant?
1 MWp (1000 kWp) solar plant would require 3-6 months for installation and commissioning, and typically only 30-45 days of actual work at the site.
4.What maintenance is required for a solar power plant?
Solar photovoltaic panels have no moving parts, and therefore require little maintenance, which will include module cleaning with water every 2-4 weeks and preventive electrical maintenance every 3 months.
5.What will be the average life of the solar panels?
The solar panels have a warranty for a period of 25 years, however, the projected life is longer.
6.What is the difference between solar plant installation on a rooftop versus ground mounting?
Metal rooftop solar system requires 20% lesser area than RCC rooftop solar or ground mount systems. Rooftop solar helps to reduce ambient room temperature by around 2 degree Celsius. Otherwise, both systems are equivalent.
