Cost Of Installation Solar Modules In India, 2021
In India, the maximum number of families come in the middle-class because of their limited income. And all we know, solar is a big & long-term investment. If someone wants to move on with solar, then the first big question that hits their mind is the cost of the whole system including installation. Can they wear it or not? & If they can wear then is it worthy or not.
After knowing that the cost is too higher for them, still, they want to move on solar then what can be the possible way to afford it. And what is the best system they afford in their budget? Installation cost also varies the capacity of the solar system. In this blog, we talk about the written below things:
- Main Components of Solar System with prices & Warranty
- Types of Solar System
Type of The Solar System:
- The on-Grid solar system is known as the grid-connected solar system, & DISCOM provides subsidies on this as per their state government policies. The solar battery is not used in this system.
- The OFF-Grid solar system is not connected to the local grid, & consumers cannot get any subsidies on this. This system requires energy storage, that’s why the cost of this system is too high as compared to an on-grid system.
- Hybrid Solar System is the mixed form of the on-grid solar system and off-grid solar system.
Components Of Solar System:
There are four main components in the solar system, which help generate electricity from solar energy. Every component of the system has its own importance & work, so we can call it complemented to each other. Its prices also vary with many factors like the brand which consumers choose, warranty of the product & capacity, etc.
- Solar Panel
- Solar Inverter
- Solar Battery
- Solar Charge Controller
- Panel Stand, and
- Solar Panel Installation Accessories
# Solar Panel:
The solar panel plays a main & very important role in the solar system so we can call put it the primary category of the system’s component. It converts sunlight into electricity. There are three types of solar panels available in the market which are provided by many new or old brands. Solar panels cost & warranty vary from brand to brand & their’s capacity (Per Watt) wise. Canadian Solar & Renewsys are counts in the no.1 solar panel manufacturer because of its product quality & services also.
For Example, if a 350-watt solar panel costs Rs 7000, a 450-watt solar panel will cost Rs 9000. Regardless, both panels are similar in appearance.
Price: 20 Rs. per watt (approx) || Warranty: 10 to 25 years (approx)
That electricity, which is generated by solar panels, is in AC (Alternative Current) form. & electrical appliances run from DC form of electricity, so the inverter converts electricity from AC to DC. Many types of solar inverters are available in the markets, so their price & warranty also varies from brand to brand & its capacity. There are many trust-able old brands & new brands, which consumers can refer to as per their choice & requirement. Fronius & Enphase are the old & very trustable brands in solar inverter in India. Enphase brought the concept of microinverter into the Indian market.
Price: 19000 per KW (approx) || Warranty: 10 years (approx)
# Solar Battery:
Consumer needs a solar battery for energy storage so that they can use the energy as per their requirement. Solar systems are three types, & consumer needs a solar battery only in off-grid & Hybrid solar system. As solar batteries are very costly, so most people are not choosing both types of solar systems. There are many new technology-based batteries available in the Indian market. The cost of solar batteries is depending upon their quality, brand, capacity & technology, etc.
Price: it depends upon warranty & capacity || Warranty: 5 to 10 years (approx)
# Solar Charge Controller:
As we can take an idea from its name, the solar charge controller control the voltage or current & helps to save solar batteries from overcharging. There are two types of solar charge controllers available in the market. Both types of charge controllers are widely used in the off-grid & hybrid solar systems Because both types of solar systems needed solar batteries. The price & warranty of the solar charge controller depends upon the capacity (amps & volts), quality & varies from brand to brand also.
Price: 1900 Rs minimum (approx) || Warranty: 1 to 5 years (approx)
These are the four main components of the solar system. We knew about their work, warranty & those factors in which prices vary. Now let’s know about the other complementary components of the system.
# Solar Panel Stand:
The stands provide a balanced platform to solar panels so that panels can be protected from strong wind & set at a proper angle to get enough sunlight. Approx. cost of these stands is ………., but it varies as per market.
# ACDB & DCDB Distribution Box:
ACDB takes AC power from the inverter & supply it to Ac appliances through the distribution board. It provides compulsory protection to the device to protect it from voltage fluctuation damages. It’s mostly used with a grid-tie solar inverter.
Solar DCDB is used to protect the system if there is any fault during failure on the DC side. It can be used with an off-grid solar inverter as well as a grid-tie solar inverter. The price of both types of distribution boxes is based on market prices.
# DC & AC Wire:
AC and DC both types of wires are used in installation as per the system’s demand. The cost of these wires is more than normal wires. For these wires, many trustable brands are available in the market. Price also varies from their quality & brands.
Besides these components, there are many small components are the parts of the solar system like lighting arrester, connectors, wire thimbles, earthing kit & installer tools, etc. These small parts are easily available in the local market and the prices of these parts depend on the prices of the local market itself.
So it is the complete detailed information about the installation cost of the solar system. If you liked this information or you want to give any kind of suggestion, then you can comment below in the comment box. Stay connected for important information with Ornate Solar.
