Director’s Message

I take this opportunity to thank our valued customers, whose continued patronage and confidence in our products inspires us to extend the best of services and enables us to provide value for their money.
The International Solar Alliance (ISA) was launched on 30th November, 2015 headquartered at Gurugram, as initiated by Mr.Narendra Modi, Hon’ble Prime Minister of India. The ISA is a treaty based international inter-governmental alliance of 121 solar resource rich countries lying fully or partially between the Tropics of Cancer and Capricorn. Major objective of ISA is deployment of over 1000 GW of solar energy and mobilization of more than US $ 1000 billion of investment into the solar energy.
Prior to that, the National Solar Mission was launched on the 11th January, 2010 by the Prime Minister. The Mission has set the ambitious target of deploying 100,000 MW by the year 2021-22, is aimed at reducing the cost of solar power generation in the country through (i) long term policy; (ii) large scale deployment goals; (iii) aggressive R&D; and (iv) domestic production of critical raw materials, components and products.
In India, generally we observe about 300 clear and sunny days in a year. With plenty of land resources available (in the form of barran lands at large scale) or alternative spaces (Reservoir spread areas, canal surfaces) or Roof Top Solar at micro level, the solar energy available in a year exceeds the possible energy demand in India. The daily average solar-power-plant generation capacity in India is 0.20 kWh per m2 of used land area.
Maharashtra has a huge potential for power generation among the renewable sources of energy. In the State, there are 250-300 clear and sunny days in a year with an available average radiation of 4 to 6 kWh/sq. metre over a day. The Osmanabad region in Maharashtra has abundant sunlight, and is ranked the third-best region in India in solar insolation.
Roof Top Solar Energy plants can be useful for individual residences with terrace space or open yard, Hospitals, Colleges, Hotels, Petrol pumps, and so on.
Net Metering is an electricity policy designed for users of roof-top based panels to self generates power for their own consumption primarily and thereafter allows their electric meters to run backwards and send the extra power generated back to the main grid.  Net metering takes into account the difference of excess energy fed back to the grid and total energy consumed from the grid by the system owner. It allows the solar PV system owner to sell excess solar power generated to the utility company or buy deficit power from the utility company using a bi-directional meter to track this energy exchange.
S B Energy derives strength from Natural abundance of solar radiation, Government initiative and policy framework, Solar energy utilisation avenues and finally the end users. The Company slogan is “Serve better for smarter life”.
We welcome you to become our partners in sharing our dream, vision and our journey!
