Petrol Pump Owner Was Spending Rs. 30,000 on Generator Monthly Until He Installed Solar

Mr. Manvendra stays in Hardoi district in Uttar 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 receives negligible electricity throughout the day. Power is available for maximum 6 hours in the whole day. The biggest problem in that area is that there is a minimum electricity bill that is to be paid to the government every month regardless of whether electricity was available or not. Manvendra paid INR 10,000 monthly for his electricity consumption. He was troubled by the fact the bills were so high but more so that even after paying so heavily there was little to no electricity available throughout the day.


Like everyone in that area Manvendra also resorted to using diesel generators. And to run his petrol pump, he spent almost INR 21,000 monthly on his diesel expenditures (INR 700 approximately per day).

Manvendra was disappointed with his monthly expenditure of INR 30,000 and wanted to get rid of it completely. He then decided to contact Mr. Ranjan (Su-Kam’s authorized distributor from Hardoi).


Mr. Ranjan understood Manvendra’s requirements and decided to install a solar PCU in his petrol pump.

Indian state Uttar Pradesh, receives ample amount of sunlight. With an average of 10 hours and 30 minutes 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, Ranjan and his team of qualified service engineers decided to install the following:

Technical Specifications:

  1. Su-Kam Solar PCU – 6.25KVA/96V
  2. 8 Batteries – 150AH
  3. Su-Kam’s Solar Panels – 4KW


Load Running and Units Generated

This solar system generates 20 units of electricity in a day approximately, as per the weather conditions. The system runs the full load of 2 petrol nozzels, 4 fans and 10 tubelights.

This installation was a success and Mr. Manvendra is happy with the installation.

We had a candid conversation with Mr. Manvendra and he said, ‘I am thankful to Su-Kam since they provided me good support and advised me with which system to install. I have been struggling with electricity issues and high bills for months. I am looking forward to seeing positive results with the installation. Solar generates about 18 to 20 units every day and I am excited to see how it works. Seeing the entire installation process, I have also decided to install a small solar system in my home and I will be increasing my solar panels in my filling station very soon.’

We wish Mr. Manvendra and his family all the best and best of luck for the coming days. It has just been 1 week with this installation. Keep tuned to our blogs to know Manvendra’s first electricity bill after solar installation!
