Everyone wants to stand out from the crowd……
To be the part of future and invest into something which pays you from the very first day sounds ambiguous. But all this can be changed by harnessing Solar Energy.

SURE SOLAR presents you solar power plants which has highest quality and lowest prices from the competition. Solar power plant convert the sunlight into electricity which can be used by load and it reduces the electricity bill to as low as ZERO. The cost involved is recovered in 6-7 years and you enjoy free electricity for a period of 18-19 years.

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 effective. During operation solar power plants produce zero emissions.

Now you can generate your own energy on your roof top and increase the value of your property by making it Self Sustainable.
Come… Join the revolution brought to you by SURE SOLAR……………



Solar Power - The Future

The biggest challenge in India today is the availability of electricity. With the rising population it is impossible to meet the demands of people living in remote areas. While majority of supply is consumed by Industries after industrial revolution in India, the residential area is left in darkness. As the supply is limited as compared to the demand, the tariff is very high.

With the advancement of Science and Technology, today it is possible for a house owner to generate his own electricity and supply the excess generation to the Grid.


This is possible by the conversion of sunlight into electricity (DC) inside solar panel.
This electricity is similar to the electricity provided by batteries.





The next part of the system is Inverter which converts this DC electricity into AC electricity which we use to power our appliances .

 The AC power thus produced is consumed by the load and any excess generation is fed into the grid from where is can be used in the unavailability of sunlight.



The AC power thus produced is consumed by the load and any excess generation is fed into the grid from where is can be used in the unavailability of sunlight.



How Does Solar Energy Work?

Our sun is a naturally occurring nuclear reactor. It releases tiny packets of energy called photons, which travel the 93 million miles from the sun to Earth in about eight-and-a-half minutes. Every hour, enough photons impact our planet to theoretically satisfy global energy needs for an entire year. However, solar-generated power currently accounts for just four-tenths of one percent of the total energy consumed in the United States. Solar technology is improving and costs are dropping rapidly, though, so our ability to harness the sun’s abundance of energy is on the rise. In fact, a report from the International Energy Agency indicates that solar energy could become the largest global source of electricity by 2050. In the coming years, we will all be enjoying the benefits of solar-generated electricity in one way or another.



So how does solar power work?

Photovoltaic solar panels
Photovoltaic (PV) solar panels are made up of many solar cells. Solar cells are made of silicon, like semiconductors. They are constructed with a positive layer and a negative layer, which together create an electric field, just like in a battery. When photons hit a solar cell, they knock electrons loose from their atoms. If conductors are attached to the positive and negative sides of a cell, it forms an electrical circuit. When electrons flow through such a circuit, they generate electricity. Multiple cells make up a solar panel, and multiple panels (modules) can be wired together to form a solar array. The more panels you can deploy, the more energy you can expect to generate.



Basics of electricity

PV solar panels generate DC (direct current) electricity. With DC electricity, electrons flow in one direction around a circuit. This example shows a battery powering a light bulb. The electrons move from the negative side of the battery, through the lamp, and return to the positive side of the battery.

With AC (alternating current) electricity, electrons are pushed and pulled, periodically reversing direction, much like the cylinder of a car’s engine. Generators create AC electricity when a coil of wire is spun next to a magnet. Many different energy sources can “turn the handle” of this generator, such as gas or diesel fuel, hydroelectricity, nuclear, coal, wind, or solar.

AC electricity is chosen for electrical power grid, primarily because it is less expensive to transmit over long distances. However, solar panels create DC electricity. How do we get DC electricity into the AC grid? We use an inverter.



Inverters

A solar inverter takes the DC electricity from the solar array and uses that to create AC electricity. Inverters are like the brains of the system. Along with inverting DC to AC power, they also provide ground fault protection and system stats including voltage and current on AC and DC circuits, energy production, and maximum power point tracking.



Putting it all together

Here’s an example of how a residential solar energy installation works. First, sunlight hits a solar panel on the roof. The panels convert the energy to DC current, which flows to an inverter. The inverter converts the electricity from DC to AC, which you can then use to power your home. It’s beautifully simple and clean, and it’s getting more efficient and affordable all the time.



However, what happens if you’re not home to use the electricity your solar panels are generating every sunny day? And what happens at night when your solar system is not generating power? We don’t store solar-generated energy for later use, rather it flows back into the grid. But don’t worry, you still benefit through a system called “net metering.”



Net metering

A grid-tied PV system has no batteries. So when the sun is shining and the solar user doesn’t use up all the energy generated in a day, excess power is sent out of the house to the grid. This is called “back feeding” the grid. At night, the grid will provide energy for lights and other appliances as usual, so solar users are covered in exchange for the excess energy they shared with the grid during the day. A net meter records the energy sent compared to the energy received from the grid.



Solar Power Plants have very attractive payback periods and you enjoy free electricity upto 20 years. So take a step forward, get in touch with us for a clean and beautiful future.  



Solar energy is genesis for all forms of energy

This energy can be used for generation of electricity through the Photovoltaic route which converts solar energy in to electricity that can be used for many purposes such as lighting, pumping and generation of electricity. With its pollution free nature, virtually inexhaustible supply and global distribution- solar energy is very attractive energy resource.


1. Solar for grid connected electricity

Grid interactive solar energy is derived from solar photovoltaic cells on a large scale. The grid connection is chosen due to following reasons:


  • Solar Energy is available throughout the day which is the peak load demand time
  • Solar energy conversion equipments have longer life and need lesser maintenance and hence provide higher energy infrastructure security
  • Low running costs & grid tie-up capital returns (Net Metering)
  • Unlike conventional thermal power generation from coal, they do not cause pollution and generate clean power
  • Abundance of free solar energy throughout all parts of world (although gradually decreasing from equatorial, tropical, sub-tropical and polar regions). Can be utilized almost everywhere.

2. Solar for off-grid solutions

While, the areas with easier grid access are utilizing grid connectivity, the places where utility power is scant or too expensive to bring, have no choice but to opt for their own generation. They generate power from a diverse range of small local generators using both fossil fuels (diesel, gas) and locally available renewable energy technologies (solar PV, wind, small hydro, biomass, etc.) with or without its own storage (batteries). This is known as off-grid electricity. Remote power systems are installed for the following reasons:


  • Desire to use renewable - environmentally safe, pollution free energy
  • Combining various generating options available- hybrid power generation
  • Desire for independence from the unreliable, fault prone and interrupted grid connection
  • Available storage and back-up options
  • No overhead wires- no transmission loss
  • Varied applications and products: Lighting, Communication Systems, Cooking, Heating, Pumping, Small scale industry utilization etc.


Solar Myths

SOLAR MYTH 1: SOLAR WILL GET MORE EFFICIENT, SO I SHOULD WAIT

Fact: These days the media loves to hype emerging technologies, but the truth is we’re still using the same solar technology we were back in the 1960’s. Since then, solar has become only moderately more efficient (unlike computers or cell phones which experience dramatic improvements in short periods of time). Given this stable technology profile (plus many state incentive programs) solar makes sense right now. Once installed, your panels will continue to work for decades.  


SOLAR MYTH 2: SOLAR DOESN’T WORK IN COOL, CLOUDY, OR FOGGY CLIMATES.

Fact: Solar panels work just fine in ambient light and will produce significant energy in the fog or on overcast days. In fact, solar panels are actually more efficient at cooler temperatures than hot ones. Although this might seem counter-intuitive, consider that solar panels on a rooftop in cool, foggy climate produce only one percent less electricity than one where it’s sunny and hot. Consider too that Germany leads the world in residential solar right now, and doesn’t have a sunny climate.


SOLAR MYTH 3: I WILL STORE THE EXCESS ENERGY I GENERATE IN BATTERIES.

Fact: Nearly all modern solar panel systems are grid tied which means they’re connected to the conventional electricity grid. Your system generates power during the day and excess is fed back into the grid through a system called net metering. When this happens, your meter spins backwards and your utility company credits you for that power. At night or on overcast days, you’ll use grid power, but you don’t generally get charged for it because of all the credit you’ve generated. This grid tied method tends to be the most convenient for homeowners. Batteries are an option for those who really want them, but they’re expensive, bulky, and have to be replaced every five to ten years.


SOLAR MYTH 4: SOLAR PANELS REQUIRE MAINTENANCE.

Fact: Solar panels have no moving parts and do not require regular maintenance. Typically the recommendation is to hose off the panels once a year or so, but many panel owners actually never clean the panels and instead rely on the rain to do the job for them. Typically this will cause only a very slight loss in efficiency (about 5 percent) over the lifetime of the panels. Of course, if any large debris falls onto the panels, it’s recommended you remove it. These days, solar systems come with monitoring software that allows you to spot any drops in power generation right away.


SOLAR MYTH 5 : SOLAR PANELS WILL CAUSE MY ROOF TO LEAK, DETERIORATE, OR COLLAPSE.

Fact: Solar panels actually protect and preserve the portion of the roof they cover. If there’s ever a problem with the roof that needs to be repaired, panels can easily be removed. Most solar panels are not attached directly to the roof itself, but rather to a mounted railing system. Installers add sealants to fill in any gaps and often the mounts are surrounded by metal “flashing,” or coverings that act as an extra barrier from the elements. Note: if your roof already leaks or needs to be replaced, it makes sense to make roof repairs first before installing solar panels.


SOLAR MYTH 6: SOLAR IS STILL SO EXPENSIVE THAT IT WILL NEVER BE ABLE TO PAY FOR ITSELF.

Fact: Perhaps one of the most unfortunate solar myths is that it’s only for rich people and/or environmentalists, when in reality many homeowners choose to go solar simply because it eliminates their big monthly electricity bill. In fact, solar is a very wise choice for people who could actually use the extra couple hundred bucks a month that they’re currently paying in power bills. Studies show that on average, solar panels return two to four times their cost in saved electricity bills and typically pay for themselves completely within 6 to 8 years.


SOLAR MYTH 7: WHEN THE POWER GOES OUT, MY HOME IS STILL POWERED.

Fact: When the power goes out, grid-tied systems go out too. That’s because it’s not safe to be pushing electricity back out onto the wires while workers may be trying to fix the problem, so your inverter (the big box near your meter that turns DC electricity created by the panels into usable AC current) recognizes that the grid is out and shuts your system off.


SOLAR MYTH 8: SOLAR WILL LOOK UGLY ON MY ROOF.

Fact: Haven’t you heard? Solar is the new black. In the last ten years there’s been a growing awareness of how smart renewable energy is from both environmental and economic perspective, so solar panels are finally coming into their own and being regarded as an enhancement instead of an eyesore.


SOLAR MYTH 9: INSTALLING SOLAR PANELS WILL INCREASE MY PROPERTY TAX.

Fact: In many other states, solar installations are property-tax exempt. From an investment perspective, this means that installing solar panels could increase the resale value of your house without costing you an extra dime in property taxes. The same cannot be said for other home investments such as swimming pools, a new deck, etc.


SOLAR MYTH 10: SOLAR PANELS REQUIRE A TRACKING SYSTEM TO FOLLOW THE ANGLE OF THE SUN.

Fact: Though tracking mechanisms can provide efficiency gains for your solar panel system, they typically do not increase efficiency enough to justify the additional expense and maintenance of moving parts in residential situations. More importantly, most homeowners don’t have the additional space required for these systems.
