Solar EPC

Now that you know that solar solutions are the need of the hour, your next question would undoubtedly be as to what is Solar EPC. So let’s find out.

In the solar industry, the term is used for providing end-to-end solar services from designing the system, procuring the components and finally installing the project.

E = Engineering

P = Procurement.

C = Construction

However, that’s just not going to cut it. We know that a solar panel installation is a long-term investment, and thus, you would like to know the details. Let’s dive into it:

Engineering

At this stage, it is all about doing the requirement mapping and ground research correctly. The client’s power needs are analysed, the proposed installation site is surveyed and the weather is monitored to determine supply.

Once this is done, the equipment selection commences, followed by the engineering design and 3D modelling of the proposed solar plant.

Procurement

With a clear idea of what needs to be built and how, necessary equipment is procured from multiple local and global manufacturers. The client doesn’t need to worry about finding and choosing suppliers for each component. Although they are kept in the loop at all times, for total transparency.

While any solar plant is complex, built with a diverse set of components, the basic ones include solar panels, inverters, batteries, mounting structures and safety equipment like Residual Current Circuit Breaker (RCCB) and Surge Protection Device (SPD).

Construction

The final stage involves mounting the solar panels, setting up the accessories and connecting the solar supply with the client’s existing power supply system.

The solar power connectivity can be off-grid or on-grid. With an off-grid solar system, you’re completely reliant on the sun and energy stored in your plant’s batteries. But with an on-grid structure, your conventional electric supply serves as a fallback option.

Operations and Maintenance

Just like almost anything in life requires constant care or upkeep, so does your solar power plant. It includes three basic functions:

  • Quick problem identification and resolution
  • Minimisation of downtime
  • Reporting and transparency 

O&M done on a regular basis allows your plant to produce energy at optimum levels.

We at ECOTEQ are on track to be the largest solar EPC and O&M providers in India. Our cutting-edge technology combined with superior in-house expertise has helped us work with companies and institutions of all sizes.

If you considering a solar panel installation or any solar EPC solution, we would love to get in touch with you and take it forward!

Alternative energy can be effective in almost any industry, provided you have the right environmental conditions.

We have this handy fusion reactor in the sky called the sun. You don’t have to do anything. It just works. It shows up every day and produces ridiculous amounts of power.
