Maintenance of Solar Plants

“Solar generation drops to nearly 30% if not cleaned and maintained regularly” Solar power plant is the most economical way of producing electricity. With 300 sunny days in India, we have abundant solar irradiation to produce enough electricity meet our energy demand. We need to maintain the solar power plant to get the maximum output […]

Demystifying Electricity Unit Consumption

1 Unit of electricity Electricity consumed by household is measured in terms of Kilo watt-hour. For example, if you run your geyser for hot water which consumes 1000 watt (i.e. 1Kilowatt) for 1 hour then you have consumed 1000 watt-hour i.e. 1KWH or 1 unit of electricity. For another example, if you run your T.V. […]
