What are the most crucial facts on solar energy and solar panels which everybody should know?

With the invention of the solar cells in 1954 at the Bell Laboratories, we have been focusing on developing the technology to capture and store this energy from the Sun and use it as electrical energy for consumption. India is seeing a quantum jump in the production, application, and installation of solar panels with a […]

What is PPA? And why is it so important?

A power purchase agreement (PPA) is a legal contract between an electricity generator (provider) and a power purchaser (buyer, typically a utility or large power buyer/trader). Contractual terms may last anywhere between 5 and 20 years, during which time the power purchaser buys energy, and sometimes also capacity and/or ancillary services, from the electricity generator. Such agreements […]

What is the difference between an on grid, off grid and hybrid solar power system? How does an on grid solar system work?

The solar systems can be classified into 3 different types based on their grid-connections. They’re on-grid, off-grid and hybrid systems which are a combination of both. The on-grid solar power plant is a solar energy generation system. It is connected to the utility grid. The electricity produced by the system is routed to the grid […]

What is the functionality of solar panels and how do they work?

Solar panels work by absorbing sunlight with photovoltaic cells, generating direct current (DC) energy and then converting it to usable alternating current (AC) energy with the help of inverter technology. AC energy then flows through the home’s electrical panel and is distributed accordingly. Here are the main steps for how solar panels work for your […]

Why harnessing the most abundant power source is creating a world of difference?

Harnessing the most abundant form of natural energy is going to be the future of man in the days to come. One Company, Bengal Sun Solar (I) Pvt. Ltd has been creating one milestone after another in this area of technology, thereby making them the most sought after solar power plant manufacturer in Kolkata. They […]

Understanding Solar Energy – Why and how we should be using this energy source?

Solar power is usable energy generated from the sun in the form of electric or thermal energy. Solar energy is captured in a variety of ways, the most common of which is photovoltaic solar panels that convert the sun’s rays into usable electricity. Aside from using photovoltaics generate electricity, solar energy is commonly used in […]

On-grid solar power system. How it works and what are its benefits?

With the rapid advancements of technology in the field of solar energy, more and more people have started installing solar power system. Of the several types of different systems installed across the globe, the on grid power system is the most widely chosen one. What is on grid solar? The solar systems can be classified into 3 different […]

How can Indian farmers reap the benefit of using solar energy?

Irrigation to the farmers in the paddy fields of the Siliguri and Jalpaiguri districts of West Bengal is always a matter of great concern. Located in India’s northeast, the area is famous for its scenic beauty, tea plantations and paddy fields. While the region’s fertile soil makes it ideal for a variety of crops, it […]
