Commercial and Industrial Solar Plant

Commercial and Industrial Solar Panel Installation

Solar Power Plant Installation 

Solar panels can provide power for both business and residential use. The most common and the best location to install solar PV panels is the roof – photovoltaic panels are mounted on the roof to get maximum sunlight and generate as much power as possible. 

However, when roof installation is not desired or possible, the solar panels can also be mounted on the ground so long as no objects block access to the sun.

1) Industrial solar panel 

Industrial solar panels can be used both for on-grid and off-grid power systems. A quality solar panel will generate a better output than an inferior one.

Space is usually not a constraint for rooftop solar panels installation in industries, so it becomes a viable option for high electric load requirements. 

2)Commercial solar panel 

Commercial rooftops are larger than residential rooftops. A commercial solar panel usually has 92 cells, making it 12 inches wider than a residential panel with an average of 72 cells. The higher the cell count, the more generation of electricity. 

Commercial Solar Power Generation in India 

People are frequently concerned about high electricity costs in commercial sectors. By installing a commercial solar power plant, companies can significantly reduce their electricity bills by up to 100% for 25 years or more.  

20kW solar system 

  • Ideal for small and medium-sized businesses and organizations. 
  • 120-square-meter shadow-free area is needed for the installation 
  • The ROI of this system is about 3 to 5 years. 

40kW solar system 

  • Best for medium size manufacturing units where 160 units/day of power is required. 
  • 240-square-meter space is required for its installation 

75kW solar system

  • Best for medium and large-sized businesses  
  • It can produce up to 300 units/day on average 
  • 450-square-meter area required for installation 

100kW solar system 

  • Suitable for large manufacturing units with high energy usage 
  • Generates 400 units/day of power 
  • 600 square meter area is required for installation 

Such commercial power plants are suitable for businesses, commercial complexes, school-colleges, industry etc., with high energy consumption. 

If the commercial solar system produces more power than how much is consumed, the extra electricity will be exported to the utility grid via net metering. The government pays you the same or adjusts the same in your next electricity bill. 

Solar Power for Industrial Use 

Solar energy can be used to generate power for a variety of industrial applications: 

  • Food processing 
  • Chemical production 
  • Water desalination 
  • Enhanced oil recovery 
  • Mineral processing and many others 

It can be achieved using heat pumps powered by PV panels or concentrating solar-thermal power (CSP) technologies. Mirrors are used to concentrate sunlight onto a receiver when concentrated solar energy is used for the industrial process because it can easily reach high temperatures, contrary to electric heaters. 

Advantages of Industrial Solar Panels

  • Reduction of electricity bills
  • Reduction of carbon emission 
  • Consume free power and sell the surplus 
  • Roof protection – keeps the roof cooler 
  • Increases property value 

Commercial Buildings with Solar Panels

Commercial buildings (offices and other business organizations) can use solar panels for water heating, cooling, lighting and electricity applications. 

Commercial buildings rely on electricity for most of their energy consumption – the higher energy consumption makes installing solar panels suitable in such buildings. Economic benefits can also be availed for rooftop-solar systems in commercial buildings. 

Rooftop solar systems can meet up to 20% of a building’s requirement in India.
