Petrol pumps in Pune are bidding goodbye to exorbitant electricity bills because they have found a novel way of increasing profit and preserving Mother Nature. Solar energy has become a one-stop solution for all power problems.
With the solar bug spreading boundlessly in the Indian subcontinent, how can Pune the “Queen of the Deccan” fall behind.
Petrol pumps in Pune run on solar energy
Here’s an example of a petrol pump in Ahmednagar, 50 km from Pune, Maharashtra that has installed a 10 KW solar system on its rooftop and is now reaping the seamless benefits of solar.
Before going solar the petrol pump was consuming 80-90 units of electricity per day. This was proving to be very expensive for the owner. Since the time he installed solar the electricity consumption has gone down to a whopping 0 units. His petrol pump is running completely on solar energy and is even giving backup after sunset and at night. So now his business has become grid independent.
40 solar panels of 250 watt each
15 tall tubular batteries of 180 Ah
40 ampere Solar charge controller
The entire set up cost approximately Rs. 8 lakh which the owner will recover in about 4 years.
