Now, from your own desk, find out how much your solar system would cost and how much you can save!
How can you save money with solar energy? Let’s assume you consume about 10 units (kWh) of electricity daily and have installed a 1 kW solar system on your roof. The cost of a 1 kW system in 2015 is approximately INR 1 lakh. The lifetime of a typical solar system is 25 years. So, in simple terms, the system would cost you INR 4,000 per year.
A 1 kW system would provide you roughly 5 units of electricity per day. These are 5 units of power you don’t have to buy from the grid. At a grid power price of INR 3 per unit of electricity your bill would reduce by would save around INR 5,500 a year. This not only covers the cost of the solar system but also saves you another INR 1,500 a year!
