Power back- up and solar solutions provider Su-Kam has launched the solar grid-tie inverter. The newly launched product can be powered by mains as well as solar energy. It can work even voltage as low as 80 to 450 volts in DC and 150 to 280 volts in AC and is able to generate solar power even during low periods of sunshine.
With an efficiency of almost 100 per cent, the IEC- certified product can withstand dust and heavy rains, the maker claims. Low voltage along with erratic power supply is one of the major problems India faces with many states like Haryana, Uttar Pradesh, Bihar reporting the problem.
The inverter can also be connected to GSM Remote Monitoring application. This helps a customer to monitor the system from anywhere in the world. A customer can not only monitor the performance of the solar energy but also keep a record of up to 25 years. The inverter is equipped with an LCD screen which regularly monitors units of electricity being made, input and output voltage and the like. The inverter is priced in the range of Rs52,000 to Rs 86,000 depending upon the capacity.
On the occasion, Mr. Kunwer Sachdev, Managing Director, Su-Kam said, “The solar grid- tie inverter is designed to be highly efficient, yielding return of investment within a short span of three years. Equipped with state- of the art technology, the product is a viable option not only for commercial establishments but also for home- owners if their state has an active net-metering policy and pays a good price to residents for feeding excess solar electricity back to the grid.”
Powered by highly advanced Dual Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) technology, the product is able to operate and adjust to the different intensity of light on a solar panel to extract the maximum solar power available. Being light-weight and transformer less, the grid tie-inverter can be even mounted on the wall.
