  • 1.0 What is Industrial Power Pack?
    It comprises of Module, Inverter and Charge Controller
    • The power generated gets used at the time of generation (Real Time Consumption).
    • There are no batteries. So, it reduces the cost of the system and loss of the Power in conversion from Electrical to Chemical Energy for Power storage purpose and Chemical to Electrical Energy for consumption purpose during night time.



  • 2.0 What is Solar Power Back up System?
    It comprises of Module, Inverter and Charge Controller
    • It Comprises of Module, Inverter, Charge Controller and Batteries
    • The Power can be used in day time and also night time
    • The Components of the System are:


    • 2.1. SPV Modules:
      • Solar modules are either Crystalline or Thin films. It generates electricity from solar radiation. The generated electrical energy, DC, can be directly used for DC appliances or AC appliances through Inverters. The power generated at real time only.

    • 2.2. Battery Bank:
      • The battery bank stores the energy generated from Solar Module. It supplies the Power to the load when Sun is not available or the power generated from Solar Module is not enough.
    • 2.3. Power Conditioning Unit (PCU):
      • The battery bank stores the energy generated from Solar Module. It supplies the Power to the load when Sun is not available or the power generated from Solar Module is not enough.

      • When the batteries are charge to preset level, the PCU Grid/DG Power needs to be cut off manually/Auto from the system and load should be continue run from the Inverter. Solar Power must be preferred and use Grid/DG Power only when the Solar Power/Battery Charge is insufficient to meet the load requirement.

    • 2.4. DP Box & Power Meter:
      • Distribution Point is the centralised point where the power gets distributed from. Power Meter is used to measure the power generated from Solar Module and system as a whole.

    • 2.5. Others:
      • There are MCBs for the protection of the components of the system.
      • There is auto/Manual Switch Over to make the system functioning as per requirement.



  • 3.0. Solar Water Pumping and lighting System
    • It Comprises of Module, Charge Controller and Switch Over
    • It can be used by grid also, as it works in DC and AC Power as well.


  • 4.0. Solar Lighting Solutions
    • It Comprises of Module, Inverter, Charge Controller and Batteries
    • The centralized Power generated is supplied to the connected loads.
    • The centralized batteries and Inverters locations give convenient maintenance and security facility.

  • FAQ – COMMERCIAL

  • 1. What is depreciation Tax Benefit Code?
    Depreciation allowance at 80 % for Renewable Energy devices under U/S 32 Item 8 (XIII)
    1. Solar Power Generating System
    2. Solar Pump based on Solar-thermal and Solar Photovoltaic conversion
    3. Solar Photovoltaic Modules and Panels for water pumping and other applications

  • 2. How to get Subsidy on the system?
    Contact us . . . . . We are here to proceed on behalf of you. Government provides subsidy on the Solar Photovolatic products through MNRE to Individual as well corporate. We also provide the consultancy services to the clients for subsidy applications.

  • FAQ - GENERAL
    1. How does the system use Solar Power after the sun goes down?
      The Solar Industrial Power Back up System includes batteries also. We can use batteries to store the energy produced during the day time and use it when sun light is not available or not adequate to generate enough power to supply the load.

    2. Do the Modules break when load is applied to it, like stones or jumping of monkeys?
      Normally it doesn’t break, until it’s a heavy stone. It also doesn’t break on jumping of monkeys; still the threat can be minimized by making grills at very less cost.

    3. Can a common back up Battery bank be used for both Wind and SPV supply?
      Yes – with more capacity

    4. How much space does a system occupy?
      On an average 200 Sq ft for Thin Film and 160 Sq Ft for Crystalline Modules per KW of the system is required.

    5. Is the Solar Power Pack System scalable?
      Yes, the current system can be upgraded as per requirements. The modules and the balance o the system also needs to be upgraded accordingly.

    6. Do I need to mount the modules slant only? Can’t I use it as per my design?
      • No, it can be mounted at any angle.
      • It can be mounted as per the design of the building.
      • But if the modules are mounted slant and southward facing then the modules gives the maximum Power output as per the specifications.
    7. Is it available in any size or standard size?
      There are standard sizes of the modules as per Product series:

      For further detail please refer the Product Technical Sheet
    8. Can I use the same pump for Grid power?
      Yes, it can be operated by both AC and DC power.

    9. Can I use batteries for my pumping System?
      Yes, batteries can be used. It serves two purposes:
      1. If you want to use the pump in night time also, battery can be used to save the electricity.
      2. During the day time when you are not using the pump, the power generated from modules gets wasted. So, batteries can be used to store that power and use it further whenever sunlight is not available or not adequate to generate enough power.


    10. Do I need different kind of Electrical cabling and circuitry?
      It depends on the load design. Otherwise same electrification can also be used for Solar System.

    11. Does my solar system produce electricity on a cloudy day?
      • Yes. Both Crystalline Modules and Thin Films can generate electricity, not as much as in bright sunlight, but still as per the irradiance.
      • Thin films work better than Crystalline in cloudy weather and high temperature conditions.
    12. Can the system be relocated?
      • Yes
    13. What about After Sales Services?
      • We do provide onsite services. We do have our technical team available in our city to cater you better. We have collaboration with technical consultants in Mumbai for expert services. We do work with AMC terms and conditions.
      • Our customer care line open 24X7.
    14. How can we maximize the use of Solar Power?
      We can use "Grid-Tie Only" system. There are no batteries. As per the system design the load power generated will be consumed by the other loads connected to the local grid of the building.

    15. Does the system perform in cloudy weather?
      Yes. Both crystalline and Thin Film Modules work in cloudy weather. The Thin Film performs better than crystalline.

    16. How much is the water discharge capacity of the pump and system?
      It depends on the system configuration. E. g. the Solar water Pumping System with 1 kWp System and 1 Hp motor has the discharge capacity of 60,000 to 30,000 ltrs/day for the depth of 30-120 ft.

    17. Inch diameter 10 HP SM Pump, casing pipe size?

    18. Risk of damages of Pump by Grid Power?
      The pump can be used in both DC and AC power. The pump has in built protections available. E.g. The pump doesn’t start if the water level goes so down that the starting pump can make a short circuit in it.

    19. Solar modules size for future?
      For the specific range of Watt ratings the company provides the Modules with same size.

    20. Can Modules be kept under HT lines?
      Yes
