Together, let's build a powerful new solar system
The Rays of Life
When the first streak of orange lights up the sky, birds begin chirping and sunflowers turn their heads to receive the rays of life. The world wakes up to the warm touch of sunlight. Plants absorb the sun's energy and release the oxygen we breathe. All life on earth revolves around one immensely powerful, pure and generous source of energy – the sun.
Solar energy is infinite. The sun radiates more than 10,000 times the amount of energy that the world utilizes every year. It is one with the environment, and is absolutely harmless in environmentally-sensitive regions. It helps us to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and control our dependence on environmentally-harmful fossil fuels.
Solar energy is the need of the hour in India. It has the potential to reach the remotest parts of our country. There are places where people still don't have electricity, one of the most basic rights the modern world is entitled to. Solar power is a cost-effective, easily implementable solution to their needs. It has the potential to create a phenomenal transformation that touches billions of lives. Solar energy is illuminating a progressive future.

Approvals & Liaisoning
- Project registration at MNRE (Ministry of Non Renewable Energy) nodal agency
- LTOA (Long-term Open Agreement) related work
- Plant commissioning certificate
- Power Purchase Agreement with the government / private company
- Land-related paperwork
- REC (Renewable Energy Certificate) related SLDC (State Load Dispatch Centre) registration
- Accreditation certificate

Plant Design and Engineering
Every region in India has unique terrains and weather conditions that pose challenges while planning solar power projects. Plenty of groundwork is invested in analyzing the soil, weather, wind, radiance and topography. The project is designed with these factors in mind. This unique approach is important for achieving maximum power output and ensuring efficient project operations. Below are the three major steps we follow during project design.
- Selection of modules based on the project capacity and efficiency.
- Markings based on the topographical sheet.
- Panels are mounted in accordance with the markings, while ensuring that there is minimum disturbance to the environment.
Construction and Procurement Management
- A robust and agile supply chain (Tier 1 vendors) with a global network for the timely delivery of system equipment.
- Inventory management.
- Quality and inspection control.
- Mounting solutions.
- Alignment of non-module components with module components to generate better yield.
- An integrated planning, scheduling and execution system.
- Final commissioning.
Post-commissioning Management (O&M)
- Site inspection.
- Regular cleaning of panels and inverters.
- Removal and replacement of faulty equipment.
- Remote monitoring.
PPA (Power Purchase Agreement)
Revenue earned through the sale of electricity to a private party or the government.
REC (Renewable Energy Certificate)
These are certificates which a solar power plant developer acquires from the government on generation of solar power from the solar power plant. These certificates are traded on power exchanges in a price band of `9.30 to `13.40 per unit.
CER (Certified Emission Rates)
Emission reduction projects can earn saleable Certified Emission Reduction (CER) credits, each equivalent to 1 ton of CO2, which can be counted towards meeting the Kyoto target.
Escalated Land Value
- Large tracts of land are acquired for solar PV power plants. The value of the land will definitely appreciate after 25 years (the minimum lifetime of a project).
- Tax Holiday for 10 Years
- No income tax is payable on revenue earned from solar power for 10 years.
- 80% Accelerated Tax Depreciation
- Establishing a solar PV power plant helps you enjoy an excellent tax benefit on your current business revenue. You can claim for 80% depreciation in the first year, 16% in the second year and so on.
Project Operation and Maintenance
The operation of a solar power plant is relatively simple and restricted to daylight hours. Since the inverter and the switch gear controllers are automated, maintenance will mostly involve monitoring the overall performance of the system.
Compared to most other power generation technologies, solar PV plants have minimal maintenance and servicing requirements. However, proper maintenance of a PV plant is essential to optimize the energy yield and maximize the life of the system. Scheduled or preventive maintenance and unscheduled maintenance procedures have to be carried out. Panel cleaning and vegetation control need to be performed regularly. A maintenance schedule needs to be prepared for standardization of the process.
Annual Maintenance Checks
- Check for discolouration of solar photovoltaic cells.
- Check the panels for dust. Clean or wash them if necessary.
- Check all the connections and ensure that they are not loose.
- Verify the array output for VOC, VMP, ISC and IMP for any sign of deterioration.
- Verify whether any string or array falls under a shadow and remove the object creating the shadow.
- Verify the function of the tracking system, if provided, in line with the sun’s trajectory and adjust the angle of inclination if required.
- Check insulation characteristics for transformer oils.
- Check the switch gear parts for dust and any risk of corrosion.
- Undertake pre-monsoon checks and cleaning of drains and cable trenches in the substation and at the solar farm.
- Check if the roads and pathways need to be mended after the monsoon.
- Check the barbed wire fencing and compound wall for damages and rectify the same.
