Why Indian Solar Power Plants Should Use Trackers

It was not long ago that solar trackers were considered an unnecessary luxury while setting up solar power plants. Although they brought about an increase in plant performance, developers weren’t willing to invest on the additional costs.

Solar Trackers are devices that come in conjunction with the mounting structures and help direct the panels in the […]

How to Choose the Best Solar Panel?

Solar panels are the heart of a solar power system as they are the ones that generate electricity! The rest of the solar power plant is only to ensure that the electricity thus generated is converted and transported optimally.

In addition to its fundamental role, solar panels account for around 60% of the total cost of a solar […]

What are the Expected Returns from a Grid Connected Solar Project?

Revenue from the solar plant is computed by multiplying the units generated by the plant over a year with the tariff applicable in the location of the plant. The units generated for a year can be found out as below

Annual Generation (kWh) = CUF x Capacity (kW) x 24 x 365

CUF can be ascertained by […]

The major portion of the expenditure for a solar plant is taken up by the initial investment required. There are other expenses which we need to consider initially as part of utility scale solar costs, such as the inverter replacement cost, operations and maintenance cost, insurance charges and such.

Initial Capital Investment Required

This should […]
