Dr. Dev Pal Reddy owns a Nursing Home in Telangana state called ‘Sri Lata Nursing home’. This nursing home is a large hospital that runs high wattage appliances that use a lot of power over the day to run. Dev Pal Reddy spent INR 25000 approximately over the month to run his appliances that include air conditioners, lighting load, and other medical equipment.
Dev Pal was worried about his rising bills and wished to reduce it. He found out about solar power from his colleagues and decided to install a solar power system. But he wanted to know the perfect solar system for his hospital. Dev Pal then decided to contact our expert in solar business, Su-Kam’s authorized distributor Mr. Prakash. Prakash and his team of qualified engineers went to the site and understood the load requirements and finally decided to install a grid tie inverter in the nursing home!
How Is A Grid-Tie Inverter Better Than A Regular Inverter?
Grid-tie inverters are amazingly designed machines that basically enable you to feed back the excess solar energy generated to the grid and earn money. Excess solar energy means the energy you don’t use to run your load.
Grid-tie inverters are always connected to the grid. One cannot install grid-tie inverters in areas that do not receive any mains supply. As compared to an off-grid system, a grid-tie system also provides freedom from battery maintenance making essentially a one-time investment and a lifetime of advantage.
Mr. Prakash installed the following in the nursing home:
How Does Net Metering Work?
The concept of selling back solar energy to the electricity board is called ‘Net metering’. Let us understand this with an example.
In this case, the solar panels will generate approximately 25 units per day on an average that is about 750 units of electricity per month. So let’s take for example that this nursing home uses 500 units out of 750 units from solar power to run the load and exports the rest of 250 units to the electricity board. He also imports 100 units from the electricity board to run his load.
So instead of paying for 100 units, he imported from the board, Dev Pal will not be required to pay anything, since he exported the 250 units to the electricity board from solar power. So essentially his electricity bill is zero.
This is the net metering concept.
The net metering and subsidy given by the government make solar power a very cost effective and affordable solution for one and all.
BS Prakash then reported back to us and said, ‘The nursing home spent INR 25000 approximately every month and their bills will be reduced substantially after installing on grid solar system. The capacity of the system is large enough to accommodate their full load and during weekends they will be able to export unused solar power to the electricity board.’
We wish Dev Pal Reddy and his nursing home all the best with his future with Su-Kam and solar power and hope that more people take inspiration from such live examples. Solar is not the future, solar is our present.
