Where you live plays a significant role for your suitability to go Solar. Two major aspects should be checked on the list to install solar PV system and reap its benefits.

Shading on the roof

The first and foremost checkpoint is to check if you live in a place that receives enough sunlight for about 280-300 days in a year. Places in equatorial belt are most ideal for solar installations.

However, solar PV systems efficiently generate electricity in sunny areas with low temperatures. Hilly regions can be an ideal example that get direct sunlight and got average annual temperatures ranging around 18-20 deg. C.

The other primary factor is if your roof gets ample of sunlight throughout the day, without much shading. Solar PV systems need adequate sunlight in peak hours to generate sufficient amount of electricity. The roofs surrounded by high buildings, trees or other objects that cast shadow on the roof throughout the day are not ideal for installation of the solar PV system. Partial shading can be addressed but not complete shading throughout the day.

Thus, it wont be preferable to proceed any further in such a case. However, you can take free technical consultation from PIXON to check this parameter by an expert for your solar decision.

It is not advisable for states that offer about Rs.3.50 as tariff rates for the same reason.

The solar rebates and other incentives that your government provides in your area also plays a significant role in your financial savings and solar benefits.
