Living in a country with a solar potential of over 2,300,000 MW per Annam, over 30% of Pakistani’s are still without electricity. While many other options for power generation are in the pipeline, solar energy is the only option that can be up and running within a matter of 2-3 months. That combined with the fact that one can have electricity even in the remotest of locations and requires little maintenance makes Solar Energy the way to go to bridge energy shortfall.
MEGA Engineering provides energy security and independence via its Solar Solutions.
GENERATE CHEAP POWER DURING THE DAY
Solar power is now one of the cheapest sources of electricity in the world, having a system installed at your house can provide instant savings! A system designed to save money on your monthly electricity bill runs only during the day. This system acts like a supplemental form of energy during the day taking over all the base loads minimizing your daily bill and lowering your average cost of electricity. It is designed in a manner that all torque loads go on to the grid causing no harm to the system.
If you are creating excess power you can now sell it back to the grid and increase your savings!
The law for net-metering has been passed by NEPRA, Please contact your local distribution company or check with us wether your local distribution company has started offering net-metering.
OFF-GRID POWER SYSTEMS
When the utility power is unavailable or too expensive to bring in to your home or cabin, solar panels allow you to be your own utility company! You can live in peace, with no noisy gas generator to disturb the quiet. There are several variations of off-grid solar power, depending on your needs and budget.
All variations of off-grid solar power depend on solar electric panels and store electricity in a bank of batteries.
OFF-GRID DC SOLAR POWER SYSTEMS
DC off-grid solar power systems are most often used to power DC appliances in RV’s, boats, and cabins, as well as farm/ranch appliances like cattle gates and rural telecommunications systems when utility power is not accessible DC solar power is less expensive than AC solar power because an inverter is not required to convert the electricity produced by solar panels and stored in batteries from DC to AC. But DC solar power does NOT power standard AC appliances.
OFF-GRID AC SOLAR POWER SYSTEMS
Off-grid solar power also stores DC electricity in batteries. The addition of an inverter allows this system to convert DC electrical current coming from the batteries into AC or alternating current. AC is the standard form of electricity for anything that “plugs in” to utility power and is the appropriate current for common household appliances.
While AC off-grid solar power systems are more expensive because of the cost of the inverter, the appliances you are able to use are less expensive and there are more kinds of appliances to choose from.
OFF-GRID SOLAR POWER FOR REMOTE TELECOMMUNICATIONS
Small off-grid DC solar power systems can power tele- communications electronics in locations which are far away from power lines.
OFF-GRID HYBRID SYSTEMS
Communications Service Providers continue to expand their network coverage into rural and remote areas lacking access to reliable electrical grid power. These base station sites are traditionally powered by diesel generators. It is estimated that more than 420,000 diesel-powered base stations operate around the world today, with the number expected to grow significantly over the next four years. Diesel fuel consumption and generator management present significant MEGA challenges to network operators. They can make the difference between profit and loss in low markets
ON-GRID SOLAR POWER SYSTEM
Advantages of Grid-Tied Systems
1. Save more money with net metering
A grid-connection will allow you to save more money with solar panels through better efficiency rates, net metering, plus lower equipment and installation costs:
Batteries, and other stand-alone equipment, are required for a fully functional off-grid solar system and add to costs as well as maintenance. Grid-tied solar systems are therefore generally cheaper and simpler to install.
Your solar panels will often generate more electricity than what you are capable of consuming. With net metering, homeowners can put this excess electricity onto the utility grid instead of storing it themselves with batteries.
Net metering (or feed-in tariff schemes in some countries) play an important role in how solar power is incentivized. Without it, residential solar systems would be much less feasible from a financial point of view.
Many utility companies are committed to buying electricity from homeowners at the same rate as they sell it themselves.
2. The utility grid is a virtual battery
Electricity has to be spent in real time. However, it can be temporarily stored as other forms of energy (e.g. chemical energy in batteries). Energy storage typically comes with significant losses.
The electric power grid is in many ways also a battery, without the need for maintenance or replacements, and with much better efficiency rates. In other words, more electricity (and more money) goes to waste with conventional battery systems.
HYBRID SOLAR POWER SYSTEM
According to many renewable energy experts, a small “hybrid” electric system that combines wind and solar (photovoltaic) technologies offers several advantages over either single system.
In much of the United States, wind speeds are relatively lower in the summer when the sun shines brightest and longest. The wind is strongest in the winter when less sunlight is available due to shorter days. Because the peak operating times for wind and solar systems occur at different times of the day and year, hybrid systems are more likely to produce electricity consistently throughout the year.
Many hybrid systems are stand-alone systems, which operate “off-grid” (not connected to an
electricity distribution system or utility).
For the times when neither the wind nor the solar system are producing, most hybrid systems provide power through batteries and/or an engine generator powered by conventional fuels, such as diesel or liquefied natural gas (LNG). When the batteries run low, the generator turn on providing power to the property, and recharging the batteries. The generator runs until the batteries are partially charged. The system must not administer a full charge or it will not allow for the wind generator and solar panels to produce more energy. The dumploads on the solar panels and wind generator will catch all current not needed to fully charge the batteries.
Solar Swimming Pool System
Advantage of solar swimming pool system
With the mass emission of greenhouse gas like carbon dioxide, global warming is a growing problem to face. Renewable energy is thus greatly promoted and applied in developed countries. Government subsidies renewable energy users or allows free tax policy so as to reduce consumption of those non-renewable energy like oil, coal. This significantly helps to save energy and protect environment.
MAT Solar circulation system is featured with modular design, zero noise and pollution free. It is fully safe and reliable, very easy for maintenance. No battery is required. The AC backup box can be added to realize solar and grid hybrid power supply.
MAT Solar circulation system not only benefits the domestic and commercial users with purified water and advanced swimming pool circulation mode, but also reduces electricity cost with free energy.
Application of solar swimming pool system
Mainly for swimming pool circulation and water purification, to provide and maintain clean water.
Solar Water Pump
A solar water pump has a mini power house at its heart and consists of a calibrated and matching solar array of modules – tuned with the equivalent power of pump for that particular application. The solar water pumping system is capable of running all types of electrical water pumps with applications varying from irrigation to household demands. Irrigation pumps such as submersible, surface or deep well can also be coupled with drip irrigation systems to enhance the returns from this configuration.
A typical solar water pumping system is known by the sum total of solar array size that is required to run the attached pump. A 1000 Wp solar water pump is capable of drawing and pumping approximately 40,000 liters of water per day from a source that is up to 10 meters deep. This is sufficient to irrigate about 2 acres of land with regular crops. A 1000 Wp solar water pump helps save up to Rs 45,000 when compared to equivalent use of a diesel-operated pump over a year.
- Each solar array has a number of solar modules connected in parallel or series. Every solar PV panel generates current by converting solar radiation to electrical energy.
- The electrical energy from the entire array is controlled, tuned and directed by the inbuilt controller in DC pumps or through the Variable Frequency Driver(VFD) and enables the connected pump (may be submersible or surface) to draw water and feed the delivery pipelines.
- The water thus drawn from ponds, rivers, bore wells or other sources by a solar water pump is pumped to supply water as required. It can be stored in tanks from where it is later channeled to fields or the supply from the pump may be coupled with drip irrigation systems to provide optimized water to fields directly.
