SOLAR ENERGY FAQ
What is GRID-TIE Solution?
Grid-tied or grid connected solar is a solar electricity system that does not use batteries. Your house/farm/industry/office is hooked up to both TANESCO and your solar electricity system, so you will always have electricity available at the flick of a switch even when its cloudy.
You can install a solar electricity system of any size and you will only ever be billed if your power consumption is in excess of the amount you are generating.
The grid-connected solar is 100% efficient and also provides unlimited ‘on demand’ energy. This is what makes it so attractive. It has all the benefits of being attached to the electricity grid but with a portion of your electricity bill never increasing in price.
This Solution helps in saving your daytime electricity bills up to 100%.
What is OFF-GRID Solar?
Off-grid connected solar is a solar electricity system with battery backup. During the day the sun shines and charges the batteries as well as supplies power to your home. During the evening or on rainy days when the sun isn’t shining you use the power stored in the batteries. Your house is not connected to TANESCO hence the name: off-grid.
Although there have been large price reductions in the cost of solar panels and inverters, batteries are generally quite expensive and might require regular maintenance. Generally the idea of being off the grid is quite appealing but it does require more investment. Most of the time it is more cost efficient to connect to the grid and offset your electricity consumption with a grid-connect solar PV system than to go off-grid.
However if you are building a new house or holiday home in a remote location off-grid solar can work out to be a lot cheaper than paying to be connected to the grid. There is no absolute standard off-grid system and it should be designed to suit your specific electrical loads and use patterns.
At GadgetroniX.Net we have designed systems that run lodges, farms, residential houses, offices, companies etc. We love off-grid systems and would love to help design yours.
What is Solar Water Heating
Solar Collectors are typically located on the roof or ground mounted on a rack. They transfer the thermal energy from the sun to the cold water or a heat transfer solution.
Storage Tank is a super-insulated hot water tank that stores the sun’s energy for later use. Water in the tank receives the sun’s energy from the heat transfer solution through a heat exchanger. In some cases, your existing hot water tank can be used.
What is Solar Water Pumping
Solar Water pumps are designed to deliver the highest volume of water across a wide range of lifts. Solar water pumps perform equally well in irrigation projects and for wide area of drinking water applications where they meet the most demanding requirements, economically and without the use of fossil fuels or a grid connection.
What Solar Water Pumping Applications can I use?
Ground Water Solar pumps
Access to a clean, reliable water supply is critical for the survival of humans and animals. Ground water sources offer a cleaner and reliable supply of drinking water.
Our pumps are matched to local water conditions for optimum performance. Intelligent designs keep electronics above ground and the brushless DC drives match solar generators perfectly.
Ground water solar pumping products deliver drinking water to people and livestock economically and reliably
Irrigation The need to irrigate agricultural land efficiently, economically and sustainably is critical for food security. Costs for irrigation using diesel power are rising at >10 % per year.
Solar irrigation solutions produce no emissions, generate no noise. Solar power for irrigation is more reliable than wind power while being significantly cheaper and cleaner than diesel power. Solar pumps can also complement the design of drip irrigation systems, delivering water precisely and efficiently to individual plants. Very high volumes of water for large scale irrigation can also be supported through a wide range of pump sizes and vertical lifts.
Solar irrigation solutions are a very attractive alternative to diesel powered pumping and support sustainable agriculture
Solar Pool Pumps
For homes/hotels/lodges with swimming pools, circulation and filtration pumps used to keep pools clean are typically the second biggest consumers of electricity.
Using the technology, expertise and experience gained in critical drinking water applications, we can supply a wide range of pool pumps that use zero electricity and have a long life. Additional benefits come from quiet operation and modular construction for simple maintenance. Our solutions save the owner money and reduce their environmental footprint.
Pool pumps are a compelling proposition for homeowners and commercial pool operators in a sector where operating costs need to be minimized.
What are Solar Refrigerators & Freezers?
We supply World Health Organization (WHO) standard vaccination refrigerator/freezers to organizations and dispensaries in the most remote areas of Tanzania.
We also supply and install solar freezers for fishing cooperatives to chill their catch rather than having to resort to preserving it with smoke, a practice that makes the fish more chewy and harder to sell.
Customized solar chillers – We source, supply and install customized solar chillers for Butcheries, fish markets, restaurants, hotels.
