The solar market in India grew about nearby 75% in 2017 than what it was earlier in the year 2016. Solar power is now available to maximum households and businesses in India. What are the reasons why so many homeowners and companies in India choose to go solar these days?
On my end, stopping my blabbering, & not making you wait for more, here are the 8 most amazing reasons, our researchers have identified for you why most people and businesses these days choose to go solar.
Lets Start to Read Solar Panels Benefits & Advantages of Installation
1. Saves Lakhs Of Rupees
The electricity needs of people and businesses are increasing day by day & on the other side, the cost power per unit in India has shot up to 8 rupees from 4 rupees their by recording a significant growth of above 50% in the last one decade.
According to a recent research, installing a solar panel in India can save an average household 5-6 units of power per day which can bring in monthly savings of well above 1500 INR in many states of India. The average life of a solar panel installed at home or business is 15-20 years. And when we extend this saving to next two decades, it translates to near about 4 Lakh savings.
2. Solar Power is Green
Solar power is greener than all the other sources of electricity, be it fossil fuels like coal and diesel or nuclear electricity. The emission of harmful pollutants and greenhouse gases takes place while generating electricity from conventional sources of energy. Dangerous climate gases such as hexafluoride and nitrogen trifluoride have many thousand times impact than an equal amount of Carbon dioxide emission.
3. The Sun Will Never Die
We all consider solar energy as a renewable source of energy. The birth of sun took place about 4.57 billion years ago and will last for another 7 billion years before it turns into a white dwarf. So we don’t need to worry that solar energy will exhaust anytime soon in the near future. Luckily we have another 7 billion years before this will happen! 7 billion years is a quite long time beyond one's imaginations.
4. To Reduce Pollution
The coal, gas and petrol based electricity is taking a toll on the health of our environment. And the unhealthy environment is taking a toll on the health of both animals and plants. With 2.5 million deaths in 2017, India is ranked No. 1 in deaths related to pollution. "According to the latest report submitted by The Lancet Commission on pollution and health, 28 percent of nine million pollution linked deaths worldwide in 2017 occurred in India".
5. To Save Non- Renewable Fuels
The non-renewable sources of electricity like petrol, coal and diesel are depleting fast. And going by the current consumption rate, the energy pundits have estimated that the current resources of nonrenewable resources like coal, petrol and gas will just last for a period of maximum one century.
The use of solar energy will not only put a brake on the use of the non-renewable fuels to generate power but will provide people with a pollution free clean source of power to run electrical appliances.
6. Power To Buildings In Remote Locations
The locations like ships, Spacecraft & guest houses on mountains and islands don’t have direct access to grid power. People living here either use generators or solar inverters to generate electricity. But using a generator means an open invitation to noise and harmful gases. And generator based electricity is expensive for an average income commercial or household. When you use solar inverters in these places, you get an absolutely free of cost power supply.
7. To Generate Income
People these days install grid- tie solar inverters to generate electricity and then sell it to a utility grid to generate income from the tariffs. The networks or governments pay people money per solar power unit. The average cost of a power unit in India is Rs 8.
8. Abundance of solar energy
Among all these three non- renewable sources of electricity water, wind and solar, the solar energy is most abundantly available and as easy as a pie to convert into electricity. The other two non- renewable resources of electricity are not abundantly available and require to build a strong & expensive infrastructure to generate power.
After realizing all these facts, the maximum emphasis on the people and business is now on producing electricity based on non-renewable resources like water, wind and solar energy.
