Core Competencies Of AlienSolar

Core competencies are the resources and strategic advantages of a business, including the combination of pooled knowledge and technical capacities, which allows it to be competitive in the marketplace. This is a deep proficiency that enables a company to deliver unique value to customers. Simply, core competencies are what the company does best and consist of the combined activities, operations, and resources that distinguish it from competitors.

How Core Competencies work: To develop Core Competencies a company must take these actions:

  • Isolate its key abilities and home them into organization-wide strengths.

  • Compare itself with other companies with the same skills to ensure that it is developing unique capabilities.

  • Develop an understanding of what capabilities its customers truly value, and invest accordingly to develop and sustain valued strengths.

  • Create an organizational roadmap that sets goals for competence building.

  • Pursue acquisitions and licensing arrangements that will further build the organization’s strengths in core areas.

  • Encourage communication and involvement in core capability development across the organization.

  • Preserve core strengths even as management expands and redefines the business.

  • Outsource capabilities to free up resources that can be used to deepen core capabilities.

Core Competencies of AlienSolar:

Knowledge Providing: Knowledge regarding solar photovoltaic or solar thermal system is a very crucial part of being energized by solar energy. Many people do mistakes by selecting more than the required system size, avoiding protection system, getting confused by the mode of operations of solar power plants etc. We educate people by providing every possible information such as how to select system type (On-Grid, Off-Grid, Hybrid), how to calculate cost-effective system size to meet the energy requirement, generation and savings estimate No hidden parameters are there that can misguide our customer.

Site Survey:

  • Fulfil exact requirement - We analyze roof capacity & condition, electricity consumption, load, meteorological data etc. and determine the required system size.

  • Consider losses – We consider generation losses due to deflected tilt angle and azimuth of the PV module of every specific site. We assume losses of electrical wiring, inductive or resistive load installed at the particular site etc.

  • It is FREE – Our trained professionals do the basic site survey. From survey report to quotation generation, everything is absolutely free


  • Visualization - We provide the 3D animated design of how the power plant will look like considering exact dimensions of the roof, solar PV modules, module mounting structure etc. with proper shadow analysis before installation.

  • Preliminary Project Report – PPR includes major technical data like required and proposed system size, area required, generation estimate at proper latitude and longitude, details of components to be used for the project and financial prospects like cost estimate for the system, monthly or annual savings, payback analysis etc.

  • Detailed Project Report – DPR is the best solution to understand every minute detail regarding a project (suitable for large projects, more than 50 kW).

The technical portion of a DPR is powered by

  1. Site assessment (based on detailed site survey)

  2. Existing power supply assessment

  3. Electricity consumption and demand analysis

  4. DISCOM approval (for On-Grid system)

  5. Feasibility assessment

  6. SRA (Solar Resource assessment using PVSyst)

  7. 3D Design (using AutoCAD or Google SketchUp)

  8. SLD (Single line diagram using Proteus of Layout)

  9. Technical details of every component (panel, inverter, structure, balance of system etc.)

Financial portion covers

  1. The cost estimate of the solar power plant

  2. Warranty of the system and specific components

  3. Payment terms

  4. Payback analysis

  5. Cost for operation and maintenance

  6. Annual maintenance contract etc.

  • Engineering Drawing – We have our in-house design team to look after the electrical and civil design of an entire power plant which provides optimum output and maximum benefits to the consumer.


  • Expert Installation Team – We have our own installation and execution team of trained employees including engineers and technicians with vast experience in solar system installation to execute a project rapidly.

  • Tools and Machinery Equipment – We use proper tools and equipment that prevent damages of solar plant components and saves time during

  • Safety – Our installers follow every safety measures by using hard hats, safety shoes, safety belts, gloves, lifelines etc. to prevent any accident during installation.

  • Life of power plant – Warranty of solar PV modules is 25 – 27 years. We keep in mind that the other components should be installed in such a way that they can get maximum life. We care for best workmanship.

Accreditation – AlienSolar is channel partner of MNRE (Ministry of New and Renewable Energy), Central Govt. Our EPC terms follow every guideline of MNRE from component procurement to site testing and commissioning.

Maintenance:We provide free maintenance for the first year and provide annual maintenance at minimal cost. You will also have the option to monitor the system online remotely (using Wi-Fi and data logger). The parameters we cover under maintenance are

  • Quarterly cleaning of modules

  • Review array output, current and voltage to verify proper operation

  • Watch for shading by trees, weeds and other obstructions

  • Inspect PV modules for cracks, damage, discolouration

  • Inspect the entire system for loose or damaged wiring

  • Inspect inverters and clean any filters or vents to ensure any unrestricted air flow etc.

Customer Service: Most successful businesses recognize the importance of providing outstanding customer service. AlienSolar is well known for maintaining ongoing and already executed client relationships. We always try to provide the best service to our customers even after the warranty exceeds.


AlienSolar owned and managed by Orrand Technologies Pvt. Ltd. is playing an important role in unorganized Solar EPC sector in India by introducing the core competencies like innovation, brand recognition, marketing, customer service, employee recognition etc.
