Economic Viability of Alternative Power ….

(via Unitron Energy) Economics of complete system estimates.

1 KW purely solar will cost about Rs 3.5 to 4 Lakhs. The conversion ratio or efficiency of the solar panels will be betweeen 13-14%.

1 KW wind – solar hybrid depending of energy mix will cost between Rs 2.4 to 2.7 Lakhs

Only wind, will cost between 2.0 to 2.20 Lakhs and cost drops to Rs 1.65 – 1.85 Lakhs when installed in large numbers.

In the case of alternate systems, a 1KW portable generator will cost 0.30 Lakhs, cost of fuel per year 4-5 hours a day, 0.35 to 0.45 Lakhs, total first year expenses comes to 0.85 Lakhs. Similarly a 1 KW inverter with 4-6 hours of battery backup, 0.85 lakhs, annual draw from grid 0.20 to 0.25 Lakhs at Rs 5/- per unit, first year expense approx 1.10 lakhs.

We are evaluating Unitron Systems to be put along with all the villas on the golf course.

  1. Hi Shrikanth,

    Clover greens is a great project. I wish I can afford an abode there. I have a concern that I would like to clarify with you. I am looking at some plots near clover greens from a builder, this is for me and my family to settle down after I R2I. (BTW, I work at Intel, Santa Clara). I see an Exide battery factory in close proximity to the lands and I am reading reports on Google that the effect of lead poisoning due to battery factories could be immense. Also not sure about the ground water quality.

    I am pretty sure, you guys must have done your due-diligence when you started the project. Please let me know your opinions and findings that your team of experts must have done and help me make a decision. Please email me when you get a chance.

    Thanks,
