Why He Chose Solar!

Here is a story about Hari Kishore, who owns a petrol pump ‘Sarita Filling Station’ in Ahirori District, Uttar Pradesh. He was troubled with the fact that there is no electricity available in his area and having to resort to using a diesel generator was costing him too much.

For this filling station, he spent INR 1000 daily on diesel. The price of diesel in Uttar Pradesh is INR 54.38 per liter and is rising every month.


Hari then did his research and found out how people in Uttar Pradesh are turning to solar and getting relief from this frustrating problem. Ahirori district approximately receives 13 hours of day light every day and Hari decided installing a solar system in this area would be perfect.

To turn his petrol pump into a solar powered pump, he contacted Ranjan Singh, Su-Kam’s authorized distributor in Uttar Pradesh. Ranjan has been handling with solar system installations for a while now and after careful inspection of the filling station he gave the following suggestions—

Technical Specifications

  1. Su-Kam’s Solar PCU– 6.25KVA/96V
  2. Su-Kam Solar Panels– 250W- 16 panels
  3. Tubular battery– 150AH – 8 batteries


Units Generated and Load Running

The 4 KW solar panel generates approximately 20 to 22 units per day depending on the weather conditions. The system runs the entire load of the petrol pump that essentially includes 2 fuel dispensers and LED lights of 1.5 KW. The solar system will run two dispensers at one time. Hari is extremely happy seeing his petrol pump turn into a solar powered station.
