How will I benefit from Solar?

There are many financial and environmental benefits of going Solar : 
  • Make Money From Sun-

    Solar Grid Tied system generates electricity by converting light energy to electrical energy. The generated electricity is sent back to the grid which reduces electricity bill of our clients. 

  • Free Electricity for 25 years-

    Solar panels have a 25 years output warranty. Therefore, once installed they generate free electricity for 25 years

  • Return on Investment-

    An average Indian home can have a payback period of 4 years on their solar panel system and ROI of more than 25%.

  • Environment Friendly-

    The most well known fact about solar energy is that it represents a clean source of energy. Solar power is a great way to reduce your carbon footprint. Moreover, 1 kW of solar power system is equal to planting 154 trees.

What types of solar system are available?

In India, primarily 3 types of system are available: 
  • Grid Tied System-

    This system works only with the electricity grid without batteries. Although, this system has no power back-up but is much cheaper and has no recurring cost. Government backed subsidies reduce the cost further. This system is ideal for cities where there is little to no power cut. 

  • Off Grid System-

    This system works without the electricity grid and has power backup options. This is ideal for cities where there is no connection to the grid. 

  • Hybrid System-

    As the name suggests, it is a combination of Off Grid and Grid Tied system. It works as a Grid Tied system when electricity is available and works as Off Grid in case of power cut. It has batteries to store energy. It is the most expensive of the 3 systems. It is ideal in cities where there are frequent power cuts.

Will Solar operate during power cuts?

Hybrid and Off Grid systems are designed to work during power cuts. They have batteries to store electricity and provide backup during power cuts. Grid Tied system don't provide back up as it needs reference voltage from grid and they have no batteries to store electricity.

What is the lifecycle of solar plant?

Solar rooftop systems installed by Rigava are durable and comes with performance guarantee. The panels comes with an output warranty of 25 years.

Does solar system works in cloudy days?
