Commercial Rooftop Solar Systems in India: Installation and Benefits

Utilize Your Rooftop Space with Solar Panels

The vast majority of commercial rooftops remain underutilized, presenting an ideal opportunity for solar panel installation. By converting this space into a solar energy source, you can significantly reduce your electricity costs, which often range between ₹12 to ₹16 per unit. Solar energy is free after installation, potentially reducing your electricity bills by more than 70%.

Installation Requirements for Commercial Rooftops

At Ztric, we manage every aspect of the installation process, from evaluation to completion. The key requirements for a successful installation include:

  1. Roof Strength Inspection: Commercial solar systems add approximately 15 kg/square meter of load. We ensure your roof can support this weight without risk of collapse.
  • Roof Type Consideration:
    • RCC Roofs: For continued use of the area, elevated hot-dip galvanized steel mounting structures are necessary.
    • Metallic Sheet Roofs: Aluminum rail structures are used due to their lightweight, sturdiness, and corrosion resistance.
  1. Slope, Direction, and Mounting Angle: Optimal energy generation occurs with a south-facing slope that remains shadow-free from 9 AM to 4 PM. The ideal tilt angle varies by region: 10° in South India and above 20° in North India.
  2. Easy Rooftop Access: Safe, direct access is required for transporting materials and for regular maintenance post-installation.

How Commercial Rooftop Systems Work

A commercial solar system comprises several components working together to convert solar energy into electricity:

  1. Solar Panels: Installed at precise angles to maximize sunlight absorption.
  2. PV Cells: Convert sunlight into direct current (DC).
  3. Solar Inverter: Converts DC into alternating current (AC).
  • Power Distribution:
  1. With Net Metering: AC power is fed into a bi-directional net meter. Excess power generated from 11 AM to 2 PM is exported to the DISCOM, and the units are deducted from your electricity bill. Power is imported during non-sunlight hours to keep the building operational.
  2. Without Net Metering (Captive Consumption): All generated power is consumed within the building. No bi-directional meter is needed as there is no excess power to export, ideal for rooftops with limited space.
