Receiving only a few hours of electricity per day Jai Hind Filling Station in Jind, Haryana was spending a fortune on powering the pump.
However, solar has transformed the situation completely. With an initial investment of Rs. 4.5 lacs the money will be recovered in 1.5 years after which electricity will be absolutely free for this petrol pump.

The filling station received only 8 hours of electricity everyday. This is not enough for a petrol pump that has to remain open for business 24 hours. So the petrol pump relied on diesel generator for electricity.
Petrol pump spends a fortune on electricity
The DG set consumed 5 litres of diesel everyday. So in a day the owner spent Rs. 500 on diesel, which means on an average he spent:
- Rs. 15,000 a month on diesel
- maintenance charges of the generator
- Rs. 10,000 per month on electricity bill
Solar comes to rescue
After hearing good reviews about solar energy the owner decided to install a solar system at his pump. The job was given to Su-Kam distributor, Dev Power Systems.
- 10 KW/180V solar inverter
- 15 numbers of tall tubular batteries 150Ah each
- 16 numbers of solar PV panels 250 watt each
- 180V/40Ampere solar charge controller
Now electricity is absolutely FREE
After installing solar system the petrol pump is completely energized by solar energy. During the day all the electrical equipment run on energy generated from the solar panels. After sunset solar energy stored in the batteries power the petrol pump.
Cost and savings
The entire set up cost approximately Rs 4.5 lacs. But with diesel cost and generator maintenance charges slashed off and electricity bill reduced, the pump owner is saving a lot of money.
The money will be recovered in 1.5 years’ time.
