“I was tired of Spending Money on Generators so I Installed Solar to Power My Petrol Pump”

This story is narrated by Su-Kam’s authorized distributor Mr. Rajeev Garg, who helped this man save INR 10,000 on electricity bill per month by installed solar! Here is the full story –

How Did Solar Help This Man?

Mr. Rao stays in Kangra district in Himachal Pradesh state with his family. He owns a large filling station in which he has petrol dispensers and an office area for paper work.

This area does not experience power cuts but Mr. Rao ended up paying heavy electricity bills of approximately INR 7000.


Like everyone in that area Mr. Rao was also using diesel generators. And to run his petrol pump, he spent almost INR 3000 monthly on his diesel expenditures.

Rao was disappointed with his monthly expenditure of INR 10,000 and wanted to get rid of it completely. He then decided to contact Mr. Rajeev (Su-Kam’s authorized distributor from Himachal Pradesh).

Mr. Rajeev understood Rao’s requirements and decided to install a solar PCU in his petrol pump and asked his nearby dealer Mr. Ashok to help Mr. Rao install a solar system in his filling station.


Indian state Himachal Pradesh receives ample amount of sunlight. With an average of 10 hours of day light, a solar installation in this winter month of January would be perfect for this area.

After a detailed site inspection of the filling station, Ashok and his team of qualified service engineers decided to install the following –

Technical Specifications:

  1. Su-Kam Solar PCU – 6.25KVA/96V
  2. Batteries 150AH – 8
  3. Su-Kam’s Solar Panels – 2KW


Load Running and Units Generated

This solar system generates approximately 10 units of electricity in a day, according to weather conditions. The system runs the full load of 4 petrol nozzles, canopy lights and office lights and fans. About 2KW load is currently running on the system.

This installation was a success and Mr. Ram and his son are happy with the installation.

We had a candid conversation with Mr. Ashok and he said, ‘We have installed a 6.25KVA solar PCU since they were incurring heavily electricity bills up to INR 10,000 every month. Mr. Ram and his son were very fascinated with the concept of solar power and wanted to save their electricity bills. We have installed this system 2 days back and we are waiting for the month end to know the real benefit of this system.’


We wish Mr. Rao and his family all the best and best of luck for the coming days. Keep tuned to our blogs to know Mr. Rao’s first electricity bill after solar installation!
