What is a Commercial Solar System? How Does It Work?
Commercial solar systems are growing in popularity across Gujarat and India as they are a great way for small and midsized businesses to gain access to electricity at the lowest possible cost. This is clean, renewable energy, which keeps your electricity bill under control and allows you to take advantage of the abundant sunlight in the region, which is available for absolutely free.
Commercial solar systems are installed in agriculture and manufacturing operations. They are also used to power offices, buildings, hotels, restaurants hospitals and rental properties. You can expect to have the highest possible ROI or return on investment in commercial solar systems.
Not only does installing such a system allow you to make the most of your land and roof space, it ensures that you get to benefit from the various subsidies and tax tariffs that are granted by the government to encourage the use of solar energy.
How Does a Commercial Solar System Work?
A solar photovoltaic (PV) system consists of multiple photovoltaic modules. Each PV module consists of 36 to 73 photovoltaic cells. The PV cells convert the sunlight into electricity and all of the modules are connected to each other to form an array. They have a modular structure which makes them easy to transport and install.
Basically, when sunlight falls on these solar PV panels, the photovoltaic cells convert the energy of the sun into Direct Current (DC) electricity. This is sent to an inverter.
The inverter converts the direct current into alternating current, which is referred to as “conditioning” the power. This AC current is then fed into the power outlets to which the lights, air conditioners, fans and the various equipment or machines are connected to.
This is where it gets interesting – because the solar system works in sync with your regular power company. Any electricity produced in excess by the solar system is fed back to the utility company and when that happens the electricity meter runs backward, which saves you a lot of money on your power bills.
You can access the utility power at evening and night time and solar power during the day, which allows for maximum savings. The solar power thus produced is very stable, so you don’t have to worry about any fluctuations in the current, which could affect your machinery.
