Solar Panel Installation Procedures

Are you decided and ready to go solar and save your earth? It’s a good decision actually. Welcome to the growing community of homeowners around the globe who care about energy savings and creating a healthier planet for future generations.
Then the first step you have to do is to select the best solar panel installer in your area whom can do it perfectly for you.  And along with that, you should be aware of the overall functioning and price of solar panels and its installation. Before choosing the solar installer you should ask them the following questions:
1.  Ask how long it takes to install and interconnect a solar system to the grid and whether they have a waitlist. 
2.   Ask them about the subsidies, if they provide or not.
3.   Ask them what solar panels and other equipment they offer, including what types of inverters and solar panels they use. Then research to find out which equipment you want them to install.  
4.   Ask them what financing options they offer and at what rate…

Urja Kerala Mission - Energy Generation and Conservation Program

Kerala has launched 'Urja Kerala Mission' – an aggressive Energy generation and Conservation program - aimed at the integrated development of electricity sector in the state. It aims at implementing FIVE important projects in the next 3 years, at a total investment of ₹ 15,000 Crore. The launch of these projects was done with the inauguration of Urja Kerala Mission by the Hon'ble Chief Minister Shri Pinarayi Vijayan at 3 pm on 14 Jun 2018 at Tagore Theatre, Thiruvananthapuram.
1. Soura - to establish 1000 MW of solar power capacity in the state in the next 3 years. This includes 500 MW of rooftop solar power plants in houses, public and private buildings including schools, hospitals and commercial establishments.
Two models of financing are announced by the Utility.
Plan 1: KSEB Ltd to bear initial expenditure for installing Solar plants on the rooftop of consumers' building. 10% of the total electricity generated to be given to the owner of the rooftop absolutely free …

Reduce Your Carbon Footprint by Using Solar Energy

Solar power refers to energy from the sun, converted to be used either for heating or for electricity, by private households or even businesses. Solar power is generated by a surface that attracts the energy of the sun and a method of converting this energy into electricity or heat. This method can be either directly using solar panels for electricity, or indirect using a solar thermal collector to generate heat.
The good thing about switching to solar power is that once the initial investment to install the desired system has been done, then the energy resulting from the system is free. Plus, there are tariffs that pay you for the green energy you produce, and if you are connected to the grid, then you can sell your surplus electricity to your energy supplier and get paid for that as well. Moreover, both solar panels and solar thermal collectors need almost no maintenance once they have been installed.
What we are most interested in this case is that solar power is green. Why so? Becau…

Solar Energy in Transportation

As we all know solar energy is obtained from the sun’s radiation and it can be converted into electricity or heat. It is freely available and thanks to advances in technology, we can now harness even more of the solar energy that is continuously available to us. Solar energy is not only sustainable, it is renewable and this means that we will never run out of it. It is about as natural a source of power as it is possible to generate electricity.

The creation of solar energy requires little maintenance. Once the solar panels have been installed and are working at maximum efficiency there is only a small amount of maintenance required each year to ensure they are in working order. They are a silent producer of energy. There is absolutely no noise made from photovoltaic panels as they convert sunlight into usable electricity. There are continual advancements in solar panel technology which are increasing the efficiency and lowering the cost of production, thus making it, even more, cost-e…
