Since 2010, Vikram Solar has undertaken over 180 rooftop projects at over 250 sites, and continuously ranks amongst the top three Rooftop Installers in India. Our projects spread across India and our wide-ranged EPC experience in building solar plants in difficult terrains, high altitudes, and coastal areas is testimony to our prowess in the domain.
Our involvement ranges from concept, engineering, execution and commissioning, to operations and maintenance of completed solar array systems. Our dedicated teams work in strong cohesion to deliver customized solutions to our customers keeping a delivery focussed approach and excellence as the crux of our initiative.
How does rooftop solar work?
A rooftop solar plant is constructed on the available roof area of your building. For each 100 square feet of area, you can expect about 1 kW of power output. The generated DC electricity is converted to AC through an inverter. This AC electricity is then synchronized with your metering point so it can either be used by you or fed back into the grid to make you money!
How rooftop solar can make you money?
With solar on your roof, your power bills will be massively reduced because you will need less electricity from the grid. The cost of electricity from the grid is expected to rise in the coming years, so your cost savings should also rise! And with a linear power warranty of 27 years, you can expect long-term cost savings from avoiding the cost of expensive electricity from the grid.
Furthermore, when your system is producing more electricity than you are using, you can sell the excess power into the grid. Given that prices are expected to rise, you can also forecast that you will receive increasing income from this ingenious investment!

Business Models we offer
This is the most common business model for solar deployment in India. In this model the consumer purchases the solar system, by making 100% of the payment upfront or financing the system, often through a bank.
(Under Gross Metering)
Under this arrangement, the RESCO developer leases the rooftop and pays a fixed lease/rental to the building owner over the time of the lease period for installing the solar panels of the rooftop. The RESCO developer exports the solar energy to the utility at a predetermined feed-in-tariff (FiT) approved by the regulator.
(Under Net Metering)
Here the RESCO developer invests in solar rooftop asset, and sells the generated power to the building owner in favour of a lower solar power tariff. The excess power could be sold by the building owner to the utility through net metering system.
