Did you know Roof top solar System opportunity and guideline for how much pay to install rooftop solar system.

As we know The future is bright for  Rooftop Solar Technology. A technology fills a significant need in supplying electricity, creating local jobs and promoting economic development in rural areas, let’s we look forward to understand opportunity in this sector.

“Convert Today’s innovative opportunity into Tomorrow’s sustainable future.”

  1. Invent Solar products or sell (As a distributor)
  2. Develop solar projects, Became a skill development institute or became EPC Players..!!
  3. Provide best services, Became a placement consultancy or financial adviser or consultancy.
  4. Huge demand of Energy auditor or Data analyst..
  5. Integrated approach for Nature inspired Eco village by developing innovative tools and product for farmers by using solar energy for agriculture application.

How much pay to install rooftop solar system Or why price is different? – Four reasons why solar prices can vary,

  1. The equipment used in your system,
  2. How you finance your installation,
  3. The installer who you select.
  4. Are you preferred New technology.
  5. How much electricity do you use?
  • The equipment used in your system :- It’s depends on your budget and your priorities. You can install low-cost, lower-efficiency Economy solar panels, mid-range Standard solar panels, or high-performance Premium panels (with a price tag to match). The equipment you select will affect both on your system’s performance and your total solar costs.
  • Solar Financing – Very important point, as per selection you choose will have a significant impact on your savings. There are three different mode available to finance your solar system installation:
  1. you can purchase your system via cash or check payment,
  2. You can take out a solar loan,
  3. sign a lease or power purchase agreement (PPA) with a third party.
  • Installation Company :- There are many EPC companies installing solar across your area. You can choose a “small, locally-based installer or a national-scale installer” for your solar energy project. Each option has distinct advantages:
  1. MNRE Approved installers can give you an off-the-shelf package and are more likely to offer leases and PPAs.
  2. while local installers offer more personalized service and are often priced more competitively.
  • Are you preferred New technology :- Just like mobile phone, in solar energy system technology will updates.. it’s depends on what you preferred?
  • How much electricity do you use :- The price is depends on electricity usage, if we used more energy efficient technology, less power consumption & there for system size also reduced.
  • The cost of solar system also depends on where you live and how much electricity you use.

Note – Be careful while you  looking forward for installing solar system.

Integrated Solar Street cum Outdoor Lights..!!


Integrated Solar Street cum Outdoor Lights..!!


#DYK – Majority factory, mine or construction work, Agricultural sectors as well as few SMEs are located near the Villages..!!

As we aware about Pradhan Mantri Soubhagya Yojana 2017 has introduced by GOI With an aim to provide electricity services to all. But still few villages do not generally have any outdoor street lighting facility. Movement in the dark lanes of these villages is in deed challenging and dangerous.

Our Aim is villagers or Any citizens do not have to face the darkness anymore..! Here we have 1 simple but effective solution..

Integrated Solar Street light..!

Integrated Solar Lighting System with motion sensors is ideal for

1) Places where we do not have continuous power supply or there is no power connection,

2) Voltage fluctuations are very frequent,

3) The area is un-even, it is a rocky, mountainous region that prevents proper wiring installations,

4) Areas within national sanctuary/forest premises or in a similar green belt with restrictions on use of high voltage electricity.

5) Around House & Schools.. For Children’s

It’s simple & #DoItYourSelf kit, Which also create employment generation.

I must would like to invite you to Take the initiative to make our planet green and support several such areas around your on in the remote villages in India.l

Phase III – Continuation of Off-grid and Decentralised Solar PV Applications Programme.


Cabinet approves Continuation of Off-grid and Decentralised Solar PV Applications Programme – Phase III


The Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs, chaired by the Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi has given its approval for implementation of Phase-Ill of Off-grid and Decentralised Solar PV (Photo Voltaic) Application Programme to achieve additional 118 MWp(Mega Watt peak) off-grid solar PV capacity by 2020.

Phase-Ill of Off-grid and Decentralised Solar PV Application Programme covers following components.

Solar Street Lights: 3,00,000 numbers of solar street lights will be installed throughout the country with special emphasis on areas where there is no facility for street lighting systems through grid power, North Eastern States and Left Wing Extremism (LWE) affected districts.

Stand-alone Solar Power Plants: Solar power plants of individual size up to 25 kWp(kilo Watt peak) will be promoted in areas where grid power has not reached or is not reliable. This component is mainly aimed at providing electricity to schools, hostels, panchayats, police stations and other public service institutions. The aggregated capacity of solar power plants would be 100 MWp.

Solar Study Lamps: 25,00,000 numbers of solar study lamps will be provided in North Eastern States and LWE affected districts.

For solar street lights and solar power plants, financial support up to 30% of the benchmark cost of the system will be provided except for NE States, Hill States and Island UTs where up to 90% of the benchmark cost will be provided. For solar study lamps only 15% of the lamp cost to be borne by beneficiary student and balance will be provided as financial support as such systems will be provided to school going children in backward and remote areas.

The total project of the three components included under the phase-Ill is Rs. 1895 crore of which Rs. 637 crore will be provided as central financial assistance.

The off-grid solar systems will also open better livelihood opportunities for beneficiaries in rural and remote areas thereby increasing self-employment in such areas. It is estimated that, besides increasing self-employment, the implementation of Phase-Ill is likely to generate employment opportunity equivalent to 8.67 lakh man-days for skilled and unskilled workers.

Off-grid and Decentralized Solar PV Applications Programme has high impact in the rural and remote areas of the country where grid power has either not reached or is not reliable. During the Phase-Ill, the programme is likely to benefit 40 lakh rural households. In addition, the off-grid solar power plants proposed in the programme to provide electricity to schools, hostels, panchayats, police stations and other public service institutions will help communities at large and also help in increasing participation of women in education, social and livelihood activities.
