Mr. Daniel stays in Trivandrum district in Kerala with his two daughters, his wife and in-laws. The area that he stays in did not have a problem of frequent power cuts those were just occasional but he had a large house and his electricity bill was shooting up. He wished he didn’t have to pay that ton of money every month to run 3 Air conditions, refrigerators, and the usual home load.
Then one day he came across an advertisement in the newspaper ‘Capital Solar System’ (Su-Kam’s authorized distributor). The advertisement was about how easy it was to install a solar system at home and benefits of solar power.
This got Daniel to wonder if he could have a solar system in his home too! And so he decided to call up Mr. Moorthy, owner of Capital Solar system from Kerala.
Trivandrum district of Kerala and receives approximately 11 hours and 40 minutes of day light every day in the winter month of December. And investing in solar power in this area would definitely be a success.
And so Mr. Moorthy decided to install a solar power conditioning unit in George’s home. A solar power conditioning unit is different from a regular inverter in the way that it has an inbuilt solar charge controller. That is usually externally installed in case of an existing inverter at home.
Here is what he installed –
- Su-Kam Solar PCU – 6KVA/96V
- Su-Kam Solar Panels – 250W/24V (12 in number) – 3KW
- Su-Kam Batteries – 150AH (8 in number)
Units Generated and Load Running
This solar system is expected to generate approximately 10 to 15 units of electricity on a daily basis depending on weather conditions. The installation was a major success. The system is now running on solar comfortably. Solar power from this installation is used to run the following load of home including 1.5 Ton AC, 4 lights, 2 fans, home theatre, garden lights, microwave and mixer grinder. A total of 2000W load is running on this solar system.
After the installation, we spoke to Mr. Moorthy, Su-Kam’s authorized distributor.
He quoted – ‘We have installed Su-Kam solar PCU in the customer’s home according to their load requirements. Mr. Daniel is very happy with the installation. The system will bring a significant difference in their monthly electricity consumption from the grid. Earlier they spent INR 10,000 every month on electricity consumption. It has been 2 weeks that the solar system is installed so we are waiting for the end of the month to see the difference. We are expecting it to reduce down by 40% minimum.’
We had a candid conversation with Mr. Daniel too.
We asked him if he is satisfied with the use of solar power and what he thinks about the future of solar power in India and he says, ‘On this Christmas, I wanted to turn my home into a solar powered house and contribute to green India. We spent a lump sum on electricity bills but that problem has a long term solution now. I am very satisfied with the installation.’
We are glad to associate with such educated men who wish to learn more about solar power. We feel blessed to associate with such people.
We wish Mr. Daniel and his family all the best and hope to serve him and his family again in the future.
