Our Heritage

abtHeritgeRightImg
triangle-lft

Energy has come a long way since its inception. We have taken this invention and together with technology have employed it in our various facets of life since then. Its value is incomparable and undeniable. But in the wake of the threats of climate change, we need to find alternatives to substantially decrease our dependence on conventional energy.

In the year 1839, the French scientist Edmond Becquerel brought about the concept of Solar PV. After fine-tuning this innovation over many years later, we are finally at a stage where we can and have to rely on this energy now more than ever. To reduce our carbon footprint we need to curb the emission of carbon dioxide, and this can be achieved only if we depend on the infinite resource of the sun and its energy. The possibility of using the sun to directly supply our energy needs is enormous.

An innovative and personalized solar energy solutions provider along with a Complete Energy Ecosystem, SunEdison is a step towards promoting renewable energy that generates a greater return on investment and a firm power at the lowest cost for the next 25+ years. Our main focus is to help urban dwellers, commercial complexes and small businesses in urban areas, tier two and tier three cities create an uninterrupted, cheaper supply of power through harnessing solar energy.

With our state-of-the-art Solar Power system and advanced integration technology, we provide solar power to residential complexes as well as commercial complexes and small businesses in urban areas, tier two and tier three cities.

SunEdison refines our corporate core values as

ourValues

SunEdison has been one of the leading renewable energy development companies in the world since its establishment. Being a pioneer in this new paradigm of energy, with many firsts to its name did notcome easily. We think any institution needs a strong foundation to build upon and our values have guided us, and helped us grow exponentially.

Sustainability

Global warming and climate change are a global threat of our times. Furthermore, the natural resources of the earth are finite and human dependency on fossil fuels is not sustainable in the long run. What the world needs is more green energy and we at SunEdison are striving every day to make solar power the norm.

Quality

Our clients trust us to give them the best in the market and and we take their trust seriouslyWe understand that innovation and quality go hand in hand and to that effect we develop inhouse or sometimes even learn and adopt the best practices to deliver truly world class products and services.

Adaptability

There is no one solution that fits all and SunEdison realizes that perfectly, hence we take utmost care to design each solar energy system taking into consideration a many factors to suit each individual requirement. Functionality and output of a system is optimized only if the right design meets the right location and SunEdison ensures this.

Affordability

Unless there is a sensible ROI solar energy will not be a viable option for many and SunEdison has been trying to break this barrier since its inception. Affordable and uninterrupted solar energy for every household is a dream we are working towards.

Current technology

SunEdison pioneered the Levelized cost of energy production. Through constant innovation we put in a great deal of effort to reduce the cost of every kilo watt of energy produced over the lifetime of the project. Each technology has its own pros and cons and we at SunEdison are well aware of it. So any solar power system designed by us takes into consideration, individual needs of the customer and deliver something that would fetch the best possible outcome of energy and an optimum return on investment to customer. Some of the technology that use to design our systems are

  • Single axis trackers could be vertical, horizontal, tilted or polar aligned. They rotate on one axis moving in a single direction to harness the energy of the sun.
  • Dual axis trackers continually face the sun because they can move in two directions which maximize the output.
  • Module cleaning robots can be used where the cost and availability of labor is not easy. This type of automated cleaning is not only consistent but is water free and sustainable. The ROI will be manifold in places where water and labour is scarce.
  • String inverters The advantage of using string inverters would be that you would require only one of them for a series of 6 to 10 panels. This would be cost effective.
  • Micro inverters inverters The core advantage of using micro inverters is that you can yield more solar electricity even if some panels are shaded due to each panel having its own unit.

SunEdison has adopted the Toyota production systems and lean techniques due to which we are able to successfully complete projects in the shortest amount of time possible. Where time is saved money is also saved. Perfect examples of this would be

The 1st utility scale project in Gujarat. This project was successfully brought to light in 74 days.

The 1st canal top solar project in Gujarat as also completed in 80days.

SunEdison constantly strives to bring the cost down and fetch maximum RoI for our clients through innovations developed and adopted in-house.

Emerging technologies

SunEdison believes constantly upgrading our product portfolio and how well we put them to use for our clients will be the best thing we can do for them. Instituting world class technology into the solar power industry will bring immeasurable benefits to the world around us. We have been using the light from the sun to generate solar power; now with the use of some advanced technology we are moving towards harnessing the power of heat to generate electricity. A more sustainable living is what we are striving for every day and we believe using innovative technology such as

  • Thermoelectric Generator
  • Batteries for Storage
  • Waste Heat to power using organic rankine cycle ORC
  • Process waste to power etc will take us that much closer to our goal of a greener earth.

FAQs

1.What are the legal requirements needed to install a solar plant?
No permits are required for installing an off-grid solar system but approval is required to install an on-grid solar system. This approval has to come from DISCOM, which allows you to connect to the grid. We will help you with this process to ensure you don’t have to strain yourself!
2.What is the minimum area required to install a rooftop plant?
In an area of approximately 100 sq.ft (10 sq. m), 1 kWp solar system can be installed. This space, however, has to be a shadow-free zone.
3.Is the energy that is produced, constant through the day?
No, the energy produced through the day is not constant because it depends on the sun. The energy generated by the solar panels is directly proportional to the sunlight captured by the solar panels.
4.How does a solar plant work?
Photovoltaic models solar panels, convert the light from the sunlight not the heat into electricity. This produces direct current or DC, which is converted into alternating current or AC by feeding it into an inverter. The inverter is connected to the main service panel. It is here in the main service panel that it feeds into the internal power grid.
5.What makes up the solar plant?

The panels, inverter, racking and solar battery storage unit are the four main components that make up the solar plant.

Panel: Made up of semiconductor material, the solar panels harness the light of the sun and convert it into DC.

Inverter: The DC that is generated by the solar panel is converted into AC by feeding it into an inverter. This is then wired into the equipment in the house, companies and businesses.

Racking: This is what attaches your solar panels securely to the rooftop! Solar battery storage: The solar battery stores the energy that is generated through the day to be used during the night; as the solar system cannot generate power at night.
