Why Solar Power

Willing to switch to solar power to generate free and eco-friendly electricity? We have streamlined the process of finding the right solar vendor for you. Get quotations from DISCOM-empanelled vendors with a detailed breakdown of pricing.

Nowadays global warming is not just a theory in the textbooks. In the recent G20 meeting, every participating country including India has decided to boost the use of renewable energy sources to build a sustainable future. 

In FY 2012 solar energy only had a stake of 4% in the renewable sector (worldwide). In FY 2023, solar energy has a stake of 50% in the total renewable energy sector (worldwide). In indicates a huge surge.

Do you know the reason why the globe prefers solar energy over other renewable energy sources? Read this to get a detailed idea about the advantages of solar energy.

Advantages of Solar Energy Usage for Home and Commercial Sector

These are some of the most important solar power benefits that influence its interest among the public:

1. Solar Power Is a Renewable Energy Source

Solar energy can be an alternative to fossil fuels in future. By increasing the use of solar energy, we can save fossil fuels for future generations. The world is also gradually reducing its dependence on fossil fuels and embracing renewable energies like solar. 

Solar and wind energy can grow 9x and 13x respectively between 2022 and 2050. From experts’ view, by 2050, non-fossil fuels will take the majority stake (52%) of the total energy generation system (according to DNV).

2. Solar Power Helps to Reduce Electricity Bills

A solar power plant generates free electricity from the energy of the sunlight. Using an on-grid or grid-tie solar system, you can reduce your electricity bills by around 95%. Every 1 KW solar system can save around Rs. 11,500 from your electricity bill every year.

If you want to know about the 1 KW solar installation cost along with the required components, prices, subsidy amount, etc., you can read our blog on this topic.

3. Solar Subsidy by the Indian Government

The Indian Government announced up to Rs.78,000 subsidy for new solar system installations. The cabinet has also approved the budget of Rs. 75,021 crore to disburse subsidies for the next 1 crore rooftop solar installations. 

So, if you install a solar system, you will get back a portion of your initial investment as a solar subsidy.

For 1KW, 2KW and 3KW or above solar systems, the subsidy amount is Rs. 30,000, Rs. 60,000 and Rs. 78,000 respectively.

4. Solar Power Makes You Energy Independent

By installing an off-grid solar power plant, you can become 100% energy-independent. This is one of the best benefits of solar panels in homes which is ideal for those places with no grid connection. Even if you use a grid connection you can go off-grid using a solar power plant.

However, the on-grid solar system is dependent on the power supply grids in your area because it cannot work during power cuts.

5. Solar Works Everywhere

Unlike other renewable energy sources, solar energy can work in every geographic location. The sunlight falls everywhere on this earth but at latitude-wise different angles. 

According to solar experts, to get the best electricity output, some specific angles must be followed to install the solar panels:

Name of the States

Solar Panel Angle

Andhra Pradesh, Kerala, Karnataka, Telangana, Tamil Nadu

12 – 18 degrees

Gujarat, West Bengal, Jharkhand, Chhattisgarh, Maharashtra, Odisha, Madhya Pradesh

18 – 24 degrees

Delhi, Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Haryana

24 – 30 degrees

Punjab, Himachal Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Jammu & Kashmir

30 – 36 degrees

6. Solar Energy Requires Low Maintenance Cost

Even if the solar power plant needs a high amount of investment as its set-up cost, its maintenance cost is very low. Generally, the maintenance cost is around 1% – 2% of the initial investment. 

For example, if your set-up cost is Rs.1 lakh. Your maintenance cost will be Rs.1000 – Rs.2000 every year which is another solar power benefit for customers. Therefore, it is easy for the owner to maintain the solar system over a long time of 25 years.

7. Solar Power Is CO2 Free

A solar power plant is not only beneficial for your pocket but also beneficial for the environment. Solar energy has no carbon and greenhouse gas emissions in our environment. 

The fact is that a 1 KW solar power plant can reduce up to 4 KG CO2 emissions per day. Therefore, by using solar energy we can also save our environment from pollution. According to a report published in the PV magazine, the carbon emissions equal to 10 fully grown trees are offset by one solar panel.

Even if you consider the life-cycle emissions (mining, manufacturing, installation, maintenance, disposal) of a solar panel, it is 20 times less than coal-based electricity production and 12 times less than natural gas-based electricity generation.

8. Solar Increases Your Property Value

After the installation of a solar power plant, your total property value increases. Most people consider this as an upgrade of your home. Buyers usually pay a higher amount for a solar-installed property. 

Based on a report published by NREL of the USA, if your solar system reduces Rs. 1,000  from your electricity bill per annum, your total property value will increase by Rs. 20,000. This is more or less same applicable for India as well.

9. Solar Power Utilises Your Available Rooftop Area

The rooftop area is one of the most unutilised in our building structures. By installing a solar power plant in this unutilised space, you can generate free electricity for your house. With solar, the unutilised space can give you returns.

CEEW Report suggests that the free rooftop space of Indian households has the potential to generate a total of 637 GW of electricity with solar energy.

10. Solar has a Lesser Energy Waste

The electricity supply process through the grid involves energy waste as the energy travels a long distance from the source to the destination. In such cases, it loses up to 6% – 8% of the total energy. However, solar power energy has less energy waste as the distance between the source and the destination is small.
