Ex­pe­ri­ence of a Home­owner in Chennai

Consumer Voice - - Feature -

Three years back, S Ku­mar had in­stalled a 1.25 kW so­lar rooftop spend­ing about Rs 2 lakh. He be­lieves the cost has now come down to less than Rs 1 lakh. He saves about Rs 1,000 a month and is plan­ning to ex­pand the sys­tem soon. He does self-main­te­nance and is happy about it as it does not in­volve any labour. What cost him some money was the un­ex­pected re­place­ment of an in­verter, but this was an un­usual cir­cum­stance ac­cord­ing to Ku­mar. He is aware that he may have to change the bat­tery, cost­ing about Rs 18,000, ev­ery four years but is pos­i­tive that these rates will also go down in the fu­ture with ad­vance­ment in tech­nolo­gies.
