What is an on-grid system?

Ans: An on-grid system is the one in which the solar power plant is sync with the distribution company line. Excess energy is fed back into the grid which energy credits are given to the customer by the distribution company which can be utilized later by the customer. The system size usually comes in ranges from 1 kilowatt to megawatts.

Will the solar on-grid plant generate electricity when the grid connection is not present?

Ans: No. On-grid solar requires grid connectivity to function. Without a grid, the solar inverter switches off as a precautionary measure. This is because the energy which gets generated in excess is exported out into the grid, and if there's an issue in the distribution line the workers working there can get a reverse current shock as a result when there is no grid connection solar generation is automatically stopped by the solar inverter. You can install a backup inverter with a battery or a hybrid solar inverter with a battery which will provide backup when there is a power outage issue.

Will the power distribution company give money in return for excess energy credits exported by the solar power plant?

Ans: No. Energy distribution companies don't give money in return for excess generated units. Meanwhile, you can always use the credits stored in the past whenever your monthly bill is generated more than usual to get a net-zero bill.

Does on-grid solar come with a backup battery?

Ans: No. There is no provision of battery in an on-grid solar system.

What is an off-grid solar system?

Ans: Off-grid solar or battery-powered solar system is a system that does not require grid connectivity. The excess power generated is stored in the battery which provides backup at the night for critical loads. The system size usually comes in ranges from1KW to 10KW

How frequently do solar power plants require maintenance?

Ans: Yes. Solar plants do require periodic maintenance in order to function properly in long term. Bird droppings and soiling are the major issues for solar panels. Clean the solar panels every 15-20 days for maximum energy generation. Simply clean the panels with water or a dry cloth.

At what time of the day should the solar panels be cleaned?

Ans: Solar panels become hot in the daytime, so if you are cleaning the panels with water due to thermal expansion the glass of the solar panels can break potentially damaging the solar power plant. Always remember to clean the solar panels early in the morning before 7 am or in the evening after 6 pm.
