Benefits of using a Rooftop Solar System:
- Long Delays in Permitting, Environment Clearance, Land Siting:
Large Solar Farms have to go through a myriad of regulations and clearances. There have also been instances of lawsuits against solar thermal and solar PV plants in India by wildlife and environmental groups as well as local Indian tribes. This problem is non-existent in case of a rooftop installation. Free area of your home’s rooftop can be easily utilised for installing a rooftop.
- Electricity Transmission Costs:
Grid Connection leads to additional costs for solar farms, while rooftop solar can use existing transmission infrastructure.
- More Grid Stability:
A large part of distributed solar is consumed locally, while farms supply 100% to the grid. That makes managing the grid difficult when solar penetration increases. A rooftop installation leads to a more balanced grid.
