Using solar energy equipment brings out the following benefits-:
•Saving of your monthly utility bills.
•Predictability on your electricity bills for years to come. You will be protected against the unprecedented rates of electricity rates because of your own power plant, which is also your local energy source.
•Financial rewards- Financial Support for grid connected to solar roof top projects by ministry of new &renewable energy(MNRE). Objective of the scheme is to promote the grid connected SPV rooftop and small SPV power plants in the residential,community,institutional, industrial and commercial establishments. MNRE has set target of achieving 300 MW through this scheme by2017.
•Erasing your carbon footprint-: natural resources are burned in order to produce energy. India derives roughly 70% of its electricity by burning fossils fuels. By virtue of your energy consumption you too become a culprit in releasing carbon di oxide in environment, even if you do not burn fuels directly.
An average Indian is responsible for 1.8 tons of CO2 per year i.e. approximately 1632 Kg/year, steadily increasing, at a pace of 55% just in the past decade.
On the other hand, solar has no carbon footprint other than the “Grey Energy” require to manufacture panels and other accessories. To top all this, you also save the inefficiency of the grid for all the power you utilize through your local energy source viz., solar
