Ketkki enterprises provides solar and alternative energy products, equipments and installation services.solar power is the energy of the sun which can be used to generate heat or electricity. It is clean (no fumes), quiet (unlike diesel generators) and renewable (unlike coal and other fossil fuels which take years to renew, the sun's rays hit the earth everyday). There are two broad ways in which we use the sun's energy - its heat or thermal property (e.g. solar water heater) and light or photovoltaic power (eg. a solar cell that can power your pocket calculator or an entire city). Solar power plant is based on the conversion of sunlight into electricity, either directly using photovoltaics (PV), or indirectly using concentrated solar power (CSP). Concentrated solar power systems use lenses or mirrors and tracking systems to focus a large area of sunlight into a small beam. Photovoltaics converts light into electric current using the photoelectric effect. Why use solar? Every second the sun produces enough energy to sustain the earth's needs for 500,000 years. But, why use it? It's economically sensible: The cost of conventional electricity is rising every year. After the initial cost of installing solar infrastructure in your home or workplace, you have zero recurring costs on solar power supply. It's environmentally sustainable: Let's face it, we are using coal and other fossil fuels much faster than it can renew itself. As a result, the world is running out of non-renewable resources. The sun,on the other hand, shines everyday. Research suggests that a 1kW solar power system saves 77 kg of coal from being burned, 397 litres of water from being consumed and 136 kg of Co2 from being released into the atmosphere.
Industries, institutes & households need continuous and regular access to power for various needs. Solar rooftop systems are designed to provide electricity in offices & homes with intermittent or no grid electricity. The solar rooftop system, being modular in construction, can be customized to generate and provide solutions based on your needs. The solar rooftop system can begin at about 100 watts, going up to a 100+ kilowatts. A typical 4-person semi-urban/urban home can have a good mix of solar power and grid power, balanced by choosing to install a 1 KW solar rooftop system. A 1 KW system can help save up to Rs 8,250 per year (compared to using grid electricity). When used as a power backup in grid-constrained locations, it saves fuel costs of up to Rs 56,000 per year compared to the equivalent use of a 1 KVA gasoline generator.
A solar water pump has a mini power house at its heart and consists of a calibrated and matching solar array of modules - tuned with the equivalent power of pump for that particular application. The solar water pumping system is capable of running all types of electrical water pumps with applications varying from irrigation to household demands. Irrigation pumps such as submersible, surface or deep well can also be coupled with drip irrigation systems to enhance the returns from this configuration. A typical solar water pumping system is known by the sum total of solar array size that is required to run the attached pump. A 1000 Wp solar water pump is capable of drawing and pumping approximately 40,000 litres of water per day from a source that is up to 10 meters deep. This is sufficient to irrigate about 2 acres of land with regular crops. A 1000 Wp solar water pump helps save up to Rs 45,000 when compared to equivalent use of a diesel-operated pump over a year.
