Gurugrammers Take Up Solar To Fight Against Air Pollution
This story is being narrated by Aditya Arora and his family, residents of Gurugram, who decided to install solar panels on their roof, as a step towards fighting air pollution. Aditya’s family resides in Sector 10 and they decided to switch to solar earlier this month.
Here is their story-
- WHY OPT FOR SOLAR- WHAT WAS ADITYA ARORA’S STORY?
The area where Aditya’s home was located had sufficient power supply but the per unit rate of electricity was very high. He lives with his family in a 2 storied home and owns his own roof. Like any regular house, he owns fridges, TV’s, geysers and other electrical loads.
Aditya and his family struggled with increasing air pollution in the city. The fog around Delhi NCR made of toxic gases with a high concentration of nanoparticles responsible for respiratory health problems. The human body can no longer filter out these toxins.
It is thus the need of the hour to make some serious lifestyle changes.
Mr. Arora was one such citizen who abided by the quote once said by Mahatma Gandhi ‘Be The Change You Wish To See In The World’
He then decided to go online and started doing some preliminary research, as we all instinctively do when in doubt, since Google seems to have the answer to everything!
Aditya stumbled upon the ZunRoof website as he scurried through the internet and was impressed to see ZunRoof’s work as a rooftop solar solutions provider. He then decided to call us and thus began the wonderful journey of Aditya Arora as a happy ZunRoof Client.
As a part of ZunRoof’s regular procedure, we first went to his home and carried out a detailed site assessment and suggested him to install a 3KW Grid Tied-solar system in his home.
2. WHY GRID TIED INVERTER?
A Grid tie inverter would not only reduce his monthly electricity bill by running the home load on solar but would also help him earn money by selling the excess solar power produced by solar panels back to the grid.
On-Grid solar inverter, also known as the Grid-Tied solar inverter, works in connection with the main grid. It offers the advantage of running load directly through solar and selling excess solar power back to the electricity company by feeding the grid. A grid-tied inverter can only be installed in areas where mains supply is sufficiently available, which was perfect for Aditya’s home.
Gurugram receives approximately 11 hours of daylight every day in this month of March. And investing in solar power in this area would bring perfect results and reduce electricity bills to a maximum.
ZunRoof then suggested for the following system configuration to be installed in his home :
3. TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS
- MNRE Approved Grid Tie Solar Inverter (Single Phase)- 3kWp
- Solar Panels – 16 panels, 325W each.
4. UNITS GENERATED BY ZUNROOF SOLAR INSTALLATION
The system is expected to generate approximately 9 units of electricity daily depending on weather conditions and the region where is it installed. The installation at Aditya’s home was a great success. The system is now running on solar and it has helped to resolve his problem of high electricity bill!
The net metering and subsidy given by the government make solar power a very cost effective and affordable solution for one and all.
Mr. Aditya says ‘I really wanted to contribute my bit to improve the environment around the city. I can now proudly say that I am a responsible and informed citizen. My family and I do wish others would also contribute their bit in making Gurugram a home for us all instead of a smoke chamber. We also want to thank ZunRoof. They really made it easy for us to tackle the whole procedure of going solar. Many thanks to the IITian team and the great work they are doing’
We wish Aditya and his family all the best with their new solar installation!
