Residential applications do also get some form of benefit from the Indian government but in a lesser degree. As for direct financial benefits, these depend on the state in which you reside and/or work.

Why don’t on-grid solar power systems come with a battery?

  • Although batteries are an immutable requirement for uninterrupted power, they also present many disadvantages such as:

    • All batteries need to be replaced every three years

  • • Some batteries release poisonous gases harmful the environment and humans alike

  • • There is always a loss of efficiency approx. 30% with every usage cycle

    Most governmental electricity infrastructures support a very stable continous electrical connection, and the on-grid systems are designed to work in conjunction with these same systems for greater savings in bills. We do also have off-grid systems which use batteries for places that don’t have grid connections. Contact us to find out more about these.
