Homes are shrinking and offices are expanding. Every organization is looking forward to build a holistic working environment so that the employees can gel with their work and colleagues. Research has found that it has increased productivity many folded.
That is why when Mr. Sharma was expanding his business he wanted to take a bigger office space. The rent was high owing to the rising real estate prices but what came as a breather was the electricity bills that was almost less half than what other offices in the area of the same size were paying monthly. He has installed solar inverter at his residence a couple of years back which yielded favorable results. This made him choose the same for his work station. Gradually many other offices in the locality converted their energy source to solar from conventional grid electricity and increased their profit margins.
