Solar solutions for schools: Can solar eliminate DG sets

We all have learnt about Global Warming and the importance of solar energy in school. But how many of us have been to schools that use solar energy? While educators instil the importance of reducing one’s carbon footprint, schools themselves continue to use old, conventional sources of energy. Many schools also rely heavily Continue reading “Solar solutions for schools: Can solar eliminate DG sets”

Kirloskar’s Eterna CW- A Must-Have for Sewage and Dewatering Processes

The Eterna CW is a sewage/dewatering submersible pump set offered by Kirloskar. Being submersible, the pump set is hermetically sealed, which means that it’s airtight and can be submerged in the fluid it’s pumping (click here to know more about submersible pumps). This pump is not only useful in sewage handling but is also essential in dewatering, i.e. removing excess water.

Where can it be used?

Fire panels: The most essential controlling device during fire breakouts

With fires being as rampant as they are today, it is crucial for all of us to take every measure possible to minimise damage in case of an unforeseen fire breakout. So, what can you do to safeguard life and property on your premises? One would possibly think of investing in fire extinguishers and a fire fighting pump set. While both of these are necessary, the most important thing to first look at would be a good fire panel.

That’s right. A fire panel. This is what will control your fire fighting pump set so that you don’t have to. A fire panel works completely autonomously so no one would need to risk their life to switch on the pump. The only thing you’d need to do is switch off the diesel engine pump once the fire is out.

Vijay Engineering and Machinery Company is a name people have been trusting for decades when it comes to fire safety.

Our firefighting control panel comes with the following features:

  • It automatically operates the main and the jockey pump
  • It comes with an advanced alarm system that gets triggered automatically
  • It automatically starts the diesel engine drive pump in case of power failure. The diesel engine panel also comes with a battery charger.
  • A standby pump automatically takes over in case the main pump stops working
  • It displays the system’s status, i.e. on, off, or other parameters

How does it work?

The main job of a fire panel is to maintain a constant pressure in the line. Since the entire firefighting system is pressurised, a fall in pressure predetermined by the fire panel allows it to start or stop different pumps. In case of fire, the panel first activates the jockey pump. The pump is activated by a fall in pressure. But if this pressure drop is too high for the jockey pump to handle, the main pump is activated. This is also when the alarm is activated to alert everyone and commence the evacuation process. The standby pump is activated in case the main pump fails.

Hence, VEMC’s fire panel was curated keeping in mind different types of contingencies and is designed to deal with each one. So, when you’re fireproofing your property, be sure to complete your firefighting system with a VEMC fire panel.

VEMC also supplies high-quality fire fighting pump sets. Click here to know more.


Net Metering and Why You Need It

Today, thanks to adverse economic and environmental conditions, we’re constantly on the lookout for cheaper, more sustainable alternatives for many things. Electricity generation is one such thing. With more and more people switching to solar electricity, many financial models and billing mechanisms have been introduced to significantly enhance the cost-effectiveness of solar models. Long gone are the days where we’d complain about unreasonably high light bills!

Solar net metering

Solar net metering is a popular billing mechanism among solar energy users. It works in a grid-tied system, where your solar PV system is connected to the main utility grid. So, if your energy production exceeds your usage, the extra units produced are added to the main grid. These units can then be used by others connected to the grid who need them.

When it comes to billing, users are credited every time they add units to the grid and debited whenever they use energy from the grid. They’re only billed for the net energy used. Usually, users tend to add more to the grid than they consume, e.g. when it’s sunny and limited electricity is required for indoors lighting. This allows them to minimize their electricity bills to as low as zero!

Perks of net metering

  • Save money. That’s the biggest perk of this system. It takes care of bringing down your light bill so that you can spend your hard-earned money on other things you’ve always wanted.
  • Eliminate the need for expensive solar products. By using net metering, your PV system adds excess units produced directly to the utility grid. This means you don’t need expensive solar generators or batteries to use solar energy.
  • Be more environmentally friendly. Net metering makes the best use of a renewable source of energy and adds sustainability to its consumption.
  • Make your neighbourhood self-sustaining. By switching to this system, your entire neighbourhood will use energy generated by its residents. Those with extra energy would provide it to others who need it. This way, power cuts will be a thing of the past!
  • Motivation to save electricity. Unlike in non-renewable forms of energy, you get credited for using lesser energy. This helps instil a conservative mindset when it comes to power consumption as those who add units to the grid are rewarded with significantly lower light bills.


Vijay Engineering and Machinery Company, apart from being one of the best water pump distributors, is also one of the leading solar companies in Mumbai. We offer end-to-end solar solutions and have been streamlining our clients’ journey to a more sustainable future for decades.
