Frequently Asked Questions
Pakistan is one of the countries seriously lacking in the renewable energy department and major cities still lack the basic consistency of electricity supply. A Solar Solution can benefit all homes and businesses by drastically cutting down on the electric bills of any facility and use nature’s free resource to its full potential.
Using our on-grid solutions, you can drastically cut down on the electric bills of any facility using Net Metering provided by the city’s own electric supply company. Using our off-grid solutions, you can become independent of the KE electric supply and become self sufficient through the means of solar energy production. A hybrid system would incorporate both of the aforementioned systems.
Depending on the type and capacity of the system installed in the facility, the savings vary from case to case. However, the electricity bill can be reduced to zero if a system corresponding to the exact load requirements is installed.
An average system appropriately calibrated to the accurate load requirement of a facility should have a payback period of approximately 3 years, which is about 34% in terms of Return on Investment.
This system uses Net Metering provided by the electricity utility company to produce electric units using the Solar Panels during daytime and ‘sell’ it back to the electricity supplier. This has a ‘Net’ effect of your electricity bill being reflective of Units Consumed (K-Electric) minus Units Produced (Solar).
This system disconnects completely from the electric power grid and runs independently using the electricity produced by the solar panels, whilst also storing the excess in Lithium Ion batteries so that the energy may be used 24 hours of the day.
This system uses On-Grid and Off-Grid in conjunction to yield the best savings to any facility. The Hybrid system makes use of the batteries to store energy during the day whilst also utilizing the Net Metering to ensure excess electricity units are fed back into the power grid and thus help lower electricity consumption. This approach yields a fully independent system capable of powering itself solely using solar energy 24 hours during daytime, whilst also cutting down on electric bills.
This is highly dependent on the purpose of installation of the system. The usefulness of each system varies and shines in its own right. If the objective is to simply reduce electric bills then the On-Grid or Hybrid systems will be the best alternative. However, if the purpose is to become independent of the electric power grid (e.g. load shedding solution), the Off-Grid system is the best alternative.

The companies which have been approved by AEDB can install systems at their facilities and must have requisite credentials, background and technical expertise.
Our 440-Watt solar panels are sized roughly as 44×74 inches.
This is dependent upon the capacity of the Solar System Solution being implemented in the facility. E.g. a 10kW solution will require a 10kW inverter.
Our systems incorporate AC and DC disconnects, that ensure any fluctuation or surge voltage cannot pass between the solar panels and inverter, or between the inverter and facility power supply.
