Petrol Pumps are often situated in outskirts of the main cities where power cuts are common. Pumps usually consume a lot of electricity as they have to function 24 Hours. Petrol Pumps in India often rely on diesel generators which are expensive and do not provide instant Backup. A 10 KVA Generator may take 1.5 Ltr of petrol per Hour! On the other hand, solar power comes at half the cost as it provides free solar electricity for 2 decades. Most petrol pumps, who install solar, recover the full cost of solar installation in less than 3 years!
Off Grid Solar Packages is very popular among petrol pump owners in India. The Package consists of solar PCU, Batteries and Solar Panels. Batteries store the solar energy generated by PV panel and provide 24X7 Back up to Petrol Pumps.
