Want to save on your monthly electricity bills? Did you know your rooftop can help you with that? Yes, you heard that right. The rooftop of your house can allow you to save a substantial amount of money on your electricity bill by reducing your dependency on the power supplied by the electricity grid. Solar home systems installed on your rooftops can allow you to power your whole house by harnessing the power of the sun. This way you will be able to use as much electricity as you want, as this is a natural form of energy which is almost free and easily available.
Another major advantage of solar home systems is the fact that there are no power cuts. Sun is always available and when it is not, you will have alternative backups to make sure that your power needs are not compromised. This way you can get rid of power cuts and, also the need to schedule your day according to the availability of power.
Does that sound reasonable?
If yes, then book a free solar consultation with one of our technical experts, and they will visit your property, inspect the site, assess your requirements, and then suggest the most feasible size and type of the solar home system based on the direction of the property, exposure to the sun and other factors. Not only that, they will also provide you with an estimate of the approximate savings you will be able to make based on the number of units the system will generate and the payback period of the initial investment.
Moreover, in order to encourage you to use solar energy to meet your residential needs, the Government of India has introduced some solar subsidies on the initial cost. Interestingly, you may be eligible to get a subsidy of as high as 30%.
