@cheerfulcallie and @YinofYang - I couldn't agree with you both more. What a very beautiful pic of the greatness life has to offer! And yes, very shocking this is in Cambodia...definitely want to visit now. Thx for sharing!
I can't believe this is in Cambodia. Wow, I really want to go visit now.
this has got to be one of my fav pics so far.....very captivating, clipping!!!

What is the difference between state solar subsidy scheme and national portal solar subsidy?
With the increasing electricity demand comes the problem of insufficient resources to support such usage. This can be especially difficult for low-income families who battle paying high electricity bills every month for basic household needs. To help ease this burden, the government has suggested solar energy as a renewable and more affordable option for electrical power. The growth of solar rooftops in India has been tremendous over the last few years. Residential rooftop solar accounts for roughly 20% of the overall rooftop mark. Residential installations have seen steady growth in the previous few years and have grown by 35% over the last year. The availability of subsidies and increased awareness of solar and its benefit is the primary catalyst for the growth of this sector This blog looks at the different subsidies available to you. Solar subsidies can improve affordability by reducing the cost of installing solar panels. If you’re thinking about installing solar panels, make sure to check out the different offerings that are available to you. State Solar Subsidy: The subsidy is available only for residential solar grid-connected systems (without batteries).  Commercial or industrial sectors are not eligible to avail of this scheme. Each DISCOM has benchmarked the rates at which solar companies can sell solar systems. The amount of subsidy available varies between 20-40% and depends on the system size. Details of the support are as below. System Capacity (kW) Solar Subsidy (in %) Up to 3kW 40% Above 3kW and Up to 10kW 40% up to 3kW 20% thereafter National Portal Solar Subsidy: Under the national portal solar subsidy scheme, the government offers a fixed subsidy depending on the system size you wish to install. The detail of the subsidy is as mentioned below. Solar System Capacity Applicable Subsidy Up to 3kW ₹14,588 per kW Above 3kW and up to 10kW ₹14,588 per kW up to 3kW ₹7,294 per kW thereafter 10kW and above ₹94,822 fixed amount irrespective of system size How to apply online for national portal solar subsidy: Step 1: Download Sandes App & Register Step 2: Login and apply for the Rooftop Solar as per the form Step 3: Wait for the feasibility approval from DISCOM. Once you get the feasibility approval to install the system from any of the registered vendors in your DISCOM Step 4: Once installation is over, submit the plant details and apply for a net meter Step 5: After installation of the net meter and inspection by DISCOM, they will generate a commissioning certificate from the portal Step 6: Once you get the commissioning report submit bank account details and a canceled cheque through the portal. The subsidy will come to your account within 30 working days Difference between the national subsidy scheme & State scheme Under State Scheme, the customer pays only the post-subsidy price to the solar company (Total Price — Subsidy amount). The solar company claims the subsidy amount from the government post-installation. In National Portal Scheme, customers apply for solar subsidies through National Portal. The subsidy amount is transferred to their bank account within 30 days of solar system commissioning. The customer will initially pay the entire amount to the solar company. Adopting solar energy for your home does not have to be a complicated process — Freyr Energy is here to help make it as easy as possible. We take care of all necessary documentation and approval processes, whether central or state subsidy. We hope it has been a worthwhile read, and if you have any other questions or concerns about state and national solar subsidies, please get in touch with us anytime at sales@freyrenergy.com.
5 Precautions You Must Take Before Installing Solar Panels
Deciding to install solar panels on your roof is significant. Solar power is an excellent method to reduce your electricity costs and positively impact the environment, but there are several things you should know before switching to solar. The five key steps you should take before installing solar panels for home will be covered in this blog. By the end, you'll be fully informed about what to anticipate and how to get ready for your new solar panels. Let's start now! Here are our top 5 precautions before installing solar panels. 1) Make sure the roof is in working shape It is advised to ensure that the rooftop is physically sound. These days, warranties for solar installation services can last 20 or 25 years. It will be simpler to take care of any necessary renovations to your roof now rather than later when the panels are installed. In addition, your panels won't need to be disconnected during the roof refurbishment and reinstalled, saving you time and money. 2) Make sure you have enough roof space for the panels to sit on Is there enough room on your roof for installing solar panels? Typically,  80 square feet are needed to install 1kW of solar. Instead of a level roof, the optimal one for solar panels should have a sloping angle of 30 to 40 degrees. Thus the ideal option for solar panels is a sloping roof, but flat rooftops are just as fair. It is not suggested to install solar panels on clay or slate roofs since they tend to collapse. It would be best if you took extra precautions when you have a clay or slate roof. 3) Ensure that the property isn’t in a flood zone  Building resilience and reducing the danger of damage from floods are the top priorities for solar providers. Floods will destroy an electrical grid, but solar energy offers novel solutions to these problems. Compared to conventional power grid solutions, solar systems feature advantageous positioning and stacking options. By mounting solar panels on rooftops, you can prevent flood damage and keep the panels out of harm's way. Your solar panels will continue to power your house and business operations if catastrophic floods don't reach rooftops or corrode wire systems. A solar system's electrical wiring may suffer if the inverter is flooded. To avoid flood damage, high-quality solar panels include protective glass casings, vacuum-sealed rear panels, and sturdy metal frames. Additionally, depending on your location and environment, mounting and racking offer flexibility created for quality and sustainability. To prevent loss on your investment, it is advised to examine whether or not your property is located in a flood zone.  4) Check if your property has enough sun exposure Your roof may not have a good enough "solar window" to make the expense of panels worthwhile if it is shaded for most of each day all year. Ideally, the area earmarked for solar installation should be shadow free from 9 am to 3 pm on any given day. Major obstacles that cast shadows can be trees & vegetation, water tanks, a nearby building, parapet walls, etc. Ensuring a shadow-free area is critical for the optimum generation of power from your solar panel installation.  5) Find out your state’s net metering rules A single bidirectional meter called net metering needs to be connected to regulate the supply and import of electricity from the grid Net meter ensures you can get credited for the energy you export. The rules for net meters can vary from DISCOM.  Conclusion: Freyr Energy ensures that all points above are taken care of. You can evaluate your system size requirement with our SunPro+ app, and our team will evaluate the site and suggest an ideal location for solar panel installation. Our team helps you with liasoning and documentation for net metering. We also help you breeze through approvals and analyse subsidies available to find the best fit for you.
