ZERO EMISSION HOUSE

This system has been configured to power an average Indian home which has an electricity bill of around Rs 1000 / month assuming 1 Kwh costs Rs 5....The 1000 W solar panels working between 9 am to 5 pm in 8 hours can capture 1000x8= 8 Kwh / day approx. It consists of the following 1) 1000 W of solar panels - These would take approx 10 sq meter of area and would convert sunlight into electricity...Cost Rs 1,15,000/ approx. 2) 2 KW GRID TIE SOLAR INVERTER - This inverter will first take the DC current from the solar panels and convert in into a 220V AC supply and give it directly to power your appliances....any excess current available is used to charge batteries and any further surplus availabe is exported to the grid....its first priority is solar panels, next priority is batteries and last option is grid...at night it allows electric current from the grid...also this inverter is MPPT enabled so allows the solar panels to work at their best efficiency...the inverter efficiency is >90%... The 2 KW inverter would allow adding another 1000 W or 1 KW of solar panels at a later date...For more details on this inverter please visit our ebay listing titled - SOLAR INVERTER 2 KW......The 2 KW Solar inverter would cost approx Rs 75,000/. Also, while we recommend a 2 KW Solar inverter, with 1 KW solar panels, to allow addition of 1 KW more of solar panels worth around Rs 1 lakh at a later date we could also give a 1 KW solar inverter costing Rs 45,000....so it saves your Rs 30,000 on this purchase and if you decide for a 1 KW inverter with 1 KW solar panels your cost will be Rs 1,70,000....however, a 1 KW solar inverter cannot support air conditioners....

COMPULSORY ADDITIONAL INVESTMENTS This system requires a min 4 , 12 V 100 - 150 Ah batteries to allow the solar inverter to function smoothly....these batteries are best sourced

..no danger of acid spill or fumes...000 . the solar inverter batteries have exhausted and grid supply is also not available.an additional normal 2 KW pure sine wave inverter with 4 pieces ...Rs 10.....normal liquid acid batteries are around 25% cheaper but need water monitoring and need to be installed outdoors.. ..... channel support for the 100W x 10 solar panels would be needed.... The lower the depth of discharge the longer the battery life...after 25 years the membrane replacements would cost around Rs 3 lakhs as the tanks.. 12V. Also.......discharging batteries to only 30% depth of discharge level means a 4 x 3 = 12 Kwh battery bank will be needed..000. a 5 KW x 4 hour = 20 Kwh VRB (Vanadium Redox Battery) with a 25 year life of 10.cost likely to be between Rs 5.this additional inverter and 4 batteries would add to the cost by Rs 50.these batteries will be subject to use only when there is no sunlight available.000. We cannot supply batteries from our place.8 Kwh..000 cycle costs Rs 10 lakhs..The batteries being used with the solar inverter are being subject to a daily chargedischarge cycle and likely to fail in 2-3 years.8 such batteries can store some 14.......since this set of 4 batteries will be subject to use only as a last option they are expected to last 7-8 years.4 Kwh which should thus be enough.if you want us to supply the batteries the additional costs will be around Rs 50..sealed maintenance free batteries are recommended as they don't need water monitoring.. 2) Additional 2 KW inverter + 12V x 150 Ah battery x 4 pcs ..this means Rs 13 lakhs for a 50 year battery.they will also ensure a 24 hour electricity to the home...000... 150 Ah batteries are recommended....the 1 KW solar panels can generate some 4-5 Kwh of energy everyday.....this would involve local level fabrication work.You could simply lay the solar panels on your roof and wire them to a charge controller but on a slant roof....a 12V . OPTIONAL ADDITIONAL INVESTMENTS 1) Structural support to fix solar panels ..... even if power supply from solar panels or grid is not available for upto 3 days. Please source it from your local supplier. electrolyte suffer no degradation in performance.. 150 Ah battery stores 12x150 = 1800 Wh or 1.from your local supplier..

...People. are not really concerned about the environment......... This option could increase the cost of your solar panel system by around Rs 50.To maintain equal charge levels in the battery banks 2 battery equalizers would be needed.3) Battery Equalizers .for a 1 KW system they would cost approx Rs 70. 5) Solar Tracker . 4) Automatic solar panel cleaners . 6) UV / IR filters + AR coating ..... ARE SOLAR SYSTEMS ECONOMICAL ? As far as my personal experience of selling in India goes.000 more. 50% esp in summers.5-1% per year largely under the ultra violet (UV) rays from the sun. Also most crystalline silicon solar cells decline in efficiency by 0.3% ...000.Quality. A solar panel cover glass with a suitable anti-reflective coating can deliver an additional 0.. Special solar panel cover glass for a 1 KW system which can block UV (prevent solar cell ageing) & IR (prevent solar cell heating) and comes with AR (anti-reflection) coating will add to costs by Rs 50. India is all about the money.. all they care about is the money in their pockets. depending on the time of day 4% to 15+% of the incoming light is lost from reflections and thus.000.000.It is estimated that solar cells performance degrade at 0.after all... in general have a very poor purchasing power. price is the most dominating factor involved in any purchase.so a 1 KW (1000W) system will deliver only around 800 W after 20 years....0. Further. ..50% / °C rise in temperature. reliability & service support come next. is not available to generate electricity.This would add to the cost by Rs 7.000.foundation civil work may cost around Rs 5....They rotate the solar panels along with the sun and can boost output from solar panels by approx..6% power conversion.This technique moves a mechanical arm over the solar panel thereby cleaning them at regular intervals......so a 1000W system rated at 25 C will deliver only around 900 W at 45 C.

.. However. Taking maintenance costs into account the car costs us more than Rs 3.we are all equally poor..000 on its diesel every month. Besides we spend Rs 1. don't worry..00 per month.... With..sometimes. We could have saved that money on public transport and by using electric 2 wheelers or cars but my father says public transport is inconvenient and also below his status. Solar systems do eventually pay up but the break even periods are pretty long at around of 7-10 years given that coal electricity is as cheap as Rs 3..the seller has to stock items and keep things ready.I wonder how many people would be willing to take all this trouble when . another aspect is does India's middle class. Besides selling car's and homes does not require government subsidy.. offer service support.using the cheapest and most inferior technology for their electricity or will they would like to upgrade themselves to independent power generation using sunlight ! If you feel solar systems are expensive.500 per month.... offer quality & guarantee.500 every month. want to remain middle class forever . always dependent on someone else for job & money. you are not alone..this is the land of poor people... this business is capital intensive. Selling solar systems even with subsidies as high as 50% is tough !! Also. arrange loan... One more point.750 as interest every month.. or finding it difficult to afford them.99% of India can't afford solar energy based systems.dependent on the government to give them cheap & dirty coal electricity... advertize it..30 per KWh...833... extending the logic a little further.In the bank the Rs 10 lakh at 7% would give us Rs 5. arrange govt subsidy. my father owns a flat which costs Rs 10 lakh and fetches a rent of Rs 3. The car we own costs Rs 3 lakh. the above arguments all I am trying to prove is that owning both the house and car may be uneconomical but India's middle class is willing to spend huge sums on them and even pay loans for 30-35 years..But my father is not willing to sell it as he says property prices will go up in future. it may be more convenient to enjoy highly subsidized electricity from coal fired plants and enjoy life as usual. This money in the bank could give us Rs 1..At the moment coal generated electricity is so cheap that practically nothing can compete with it. install it.
