Sunlit future in partnership with EcoSoch Solar has installed a 391 kW on-grid Solar PV system at Rangers Factory, an apparels manufacturer in Bangalore.
Generally, an on-grid system stops generating electricity when there is a power cut. This factory has diesel generators as back up. So during power cuts, the diesel generators send a reference voltage and frequency, matching the grid, to the solar inverters. This helps power the inverters. Once the inverters are switched on, the load is supplied by both the solar panels and the diesel generators, running at a low RPM. This reduces the diesel usually needed to run the factory when the grid isn’t available. This is the first of its kind solar system in Karnataka.
