SOLAR POWER PLANT
"Off Grid" or "Stand Alone" Systems are the systems that are installed on a Stand alone basis with out any support from the utility power. These systems are mostly installed in remote areas where utility power is not available or not reliable.
These systems could either be used to charge the batteries that serve as an Energy Storage device or could work directly using the solar energy a vailable in the day times. The applications where the Solar Energy is stored in the batteries include Home lighting systems, Hoarding lights, Street lights, Diesel Replacement Systems, Portable Lanterns , etc .
"On Grid" or "Grid-connected" systems are the systems that are connected to the utility grid through a special inverter. These Systems are more prevalent in "Feed-in Tariff" Applications. These Systems could be either be Roof Top mounted or Free Field Installations based on the size and capacity.
A pioneer in the deployment of operational MW-scale solar power plants in India, CIRA Renewable Energy has significant experience in the developing power plant solutions and in realising turnkey solar power plants. CIRA Renewable Energy has built extensive local know-how in the field of solar power plants: from planning and construction to startup and maintenance.
Solar power plant is based on the conversion of sunlight into electricity, either directly using photovoltaics (PV), or indirectly usingconcentrated solar power (CSP). Concentrated solar power systems use lenses or mirrors and tracking systems to focus a large area of sunlight into a small beam. Photovoltaics converts light into electric current using the photoelectric effect.
