Abstract

An economic feasibility study of solar photovoltaic rooftop (PV) systems in our taluka multifamily buildings was carried out to examine the effects of current market conditions, incentive programmes, and building-specific parameters. Economic analyses were conducted for 108 electricity supply points for scenarios. Several cities and towns in the country are experiencing a substantial growth in their peak electricity demand. Municipal Corporations and the electricity utilities are finding it difficult to cope with this rapid rise in demand and as a result most of the Cities/towns are facing severe electricity shortages. Various industries and commercial Establishments e.g. Malls, Hotels, Hospitals, Nursing homes etc. housing complexes Developed by the builders and developers in cities and towns use diesel generators for Back-up power even during the day time. These generators capacities vary from a few Kilowatts to a couple of MWs. Generally, in a single establishment more than one Generators are installed; one to cater the minimum load required for lighting and Computer or other emergency operations during load shedding and the others for running ACs and other operations such as lifts/ other power applications. Finally, the study showed that in addition to support measures and other economic conditions, the PV system feasibility was highly sensitive to roof characteristics, electricity demand and fuse size. Our main objective is to make a case study of rooftop solar system for 5KW load. The objective this project is to select appropriate ratting of solar panel and wiring system, selection of charge controller, selection of inverter, selection of battery, considering their rating as per requirements.
