Solar System for Home

A rooftop on-grid solar system, as the name implies, is a grid-connected solar power system built on a building’s rooftop. It is one of the most common and practical methods of capturing solar energy for homes, companies, and other structures.

At Kondaas, Residential solar installations have been our forte with around 3500 plus homes installed in Tamilnadu, making us the No 1, Residential solar installer In Tamilnadu. In  KSEB, SOURA, MNRE, ANERT & SMART CITY subsidy  (Kerala government project) we have done 4000 plus rooftop solar, making us one of the best residential solar installers in Kerala too.

With this experience, we would like to  talk about the main components and features of a rooftop on-grid solar system:

1. Solar power: Rooftop solar systems are outfitted with solar panels (photovoltaic modules) that are mounted on the roof of the building. These panels capture and convert sunlight into electricity. The quantity of panels and their configuration are determined by the available roof space and the desired energy production.

2. Inverter: Solar panels produce direct current (DC) electricity, but most electricity utilized in houses and buildings is alternating current (AC). An inverter is built to transform the direct current electricity into alternating current electricity, which is compatible with the building’s electrical system.

3. Mounting Structure: Solar panels are securely attached to the rooftop by racking or mounting structure. The sort of mounting mechanism used depends on the material and design of the roof.

4. wire and Electrical Components: Adequate wire and electrical components connect the solar panels and inverter, ensuring safe and efficient energy transfer. It is critical to follow electrical rules and safety norms.

5. Grid Connection: Connecting to the local electric grid is an important aspect of a rooftop on-grid solar system. This link allows the system to export excess electricity to the grid and receive power from the grid when the solar panels are producing insufficient energy, such as at night or on cloudy days.

6. Net Metering: Net metering is used by the majority of grid-connected rooftop solar installations. When the system produces more electricity than the building needs, the extra energy is released back into the grid, and the owner receives credits or lowers his or her electricity bill.

7. Monitoring and Control: Many rooftop solar systems include monitoring and control. Energy output, consumption, and system performance can be tracked by homeowners or building owners via mobile apps like PRO KONDAAS, an IOT-based monitoring solution from our R&D wing or internet platforms.

8. Environmental and cash Advantages: Rooftop on-grid solar systems provide numerous advantages, including cheaper electricity bills, lower greenhouse gas emissions, potential cash incentives or rebates, and enhanced property value.

9. Aesthetic Considerations: Depending on the design of the solar array and the type of solar panels used, rooftop solar systems can be effortlessly blended into the architecture of the building, boosting overall aesthetics.

Rooftop on-grid solar systems are a low-cost and environmentally responsible option to create clean energy while decreasing dependence on traditional fossil fuels. To achieve the best solar performance, it’s critical to analyze the roof’s condition, orientation, and shading before installing such a system. Furthermore, because local legislation, permits, and incentives may differ, it is best to speak with a professional solar installer and the local utility company to ensure a smooth installation procedure and compliance with local requirements.
