To install solar panels in a home in Delhi is always a difficult task because of the densely populated areas. With the increasing consciousness of saving natural resources and the rising electricity bills, almost every house in Delhi NCR wants to install solar panels to save money.
But the main problem that occurs while planning for the installation of solar panels is the very compact rooftops. Generally, the homes are built with 3 BHK multi floor specifications, and in Delhi NCR multi floor buildings are almost everywhere and are compact. Another problem is that the top floor owner is the owner of the rooftop, whereas the rest of the floor owners do not get to own the rooftop space.
The average power consumption for a 3 BHK home ranges in between 40 to 50 units per day in the peak season of Summer, whereas in Rainy Season, the daily power consumption goes down to 15 to 20 units and in winters it ranges from 25 to 35 units.
According to the data driven by the power consumption, a 3 BHK home is paying Rs. 1 Lakh to Rs. 1.5 Lakh per annum as their yearly electricity bill. The high electricity bills can be curbed with the usage solar panels or a solar system. A solar system with heavy watt capacity can provide power to all the residents of a building and can decrease their yearly bills by a good margin.
