Step 1

The solar panels convert sunlight into electric energy, which is Direct Current (DC). This current is then sent to an inverter.

Step 2

The inverter converts this DC to Alternating Current (AC) since households are only equipped to use AC. The grid tied inverter additionally regulates the amount and voltage of electricity fed to the household since all the power generated is mostly much more than a home needs or can handle.

Step 3

This ‘converted’ power supply is then used by homes through the main electricity distribution panel. Your home now has access to clean and green electricity, which makes you a contributor towards a cleaner and more sustainable environment.

A net energy meter keeps track of the all the power your solar system produces. Any solar energy that you do not use simultaneous with production will go back into the electrical grid through the meter. At night or on cloudy days, when your system is not producing more than your property needs, you will consume electricity from the grid as normal. Your utility will bill you for the “net” consumption for any given billing period and provide you with a dollar credit for any excess production during a given period.

1 kW of Solar Plant

Mitigation of 226 Tonnes of CO2

Saving of 1,672 Barrels of Crude Oil

Equivalent to Plantation of 344 teak trees

In addition to significant savings, the 1 kWp solar plant would reduce CO2 emissions by 226 Tonnes1 over the life of the plant, which

  • Has the same effect as reducing consumption of 1,672 barrels2 of crude oil would have on CO2 emissions
  • Has the same effect as planting 344 teak trees3 would have
  • Will result in improved public health and environment quality and enhance your economic, environmental and societal capital
