Solar PV System Design

A successful design involves accurate knowledge of daily electrical load calculation and accounts for all worst case scenarios which might possibly occur during operation. A good designer will be pragmatic and keep the costs down by cutting on unnecessary over sizing the system. 
Replaced all the lights with LED lights which consume far less electricity compared with the usual CFL lights or tubelights. This lowers daily power consumption which enables you to manage with smaller solar PV system.

Solar Energy Industry in India & Its Future Prospects


PV Solar System Installer training programme - March 2015 at IST
The Indian solar energy sector has been growing rapidly, in the past few years, majorly due to Government’s
initiatives such as tax exemptions and subsidies. Due to technical potential of 5,000 trillion kWh per year and
minimum operating cost, Solar Power is considered the best suited energy source for India.

Much of the country does not have an electrical grid, so solar power will indeed be a boon for water
pumping, to begin replacing India's four to five million diesel powered water pumps, each consuming about
3.5 kilowatt of off-grid lighting. Solar energy technology consists of solar thermal technologies, which utilize
sun’s energy and solar photovoltaic technology, which convert solar energy directly into electricity.

India has been ranked 7th worldwide for solar photovoltaic (PV) cell production and secure 9th rank in solar
thermal power generation. This capacity is growing rapidly due to the entry of various private players in
manufacturing of solar energy equipment.
