December 07, 2016 0 Comments

If you looking for the installation of solar panels on your roof and wondering how much it will cost and how much savings you can have on your monthly electricity bill, then you are in the right place. People ask this question quite often and most of the cases this is the first question people ask. Here, I have tried to address this important questions without going into any technical details.


The cost of rooftop solar system depends on the system size (1 kW, 25 kW, 100 kW etc), system type (on-grid, off-grid, hybrid etc), autonomy needed (1 Hr, 4 Hr, 24 Hr etc), location and also on the quality of the products and services.


A comprehensive summary of various types of solar systems along with the cost is given here for you convenience. The pice is inclusive of GST. Please do not hesitate to drop a comment in the comment section at the bottom if you have any specific queries/comments/suggestions.


On-Grid Rooftop Solar System

Where To Use: Power cut is less than 2 Hr a day on average, peak load is 5 kVA or more, want to reduce electricity bill. Suitable for residential, commercial and industrial purpose where the electricity consumption is above 500 Units (kWh) per month. 

System Size System Cost Cost/Watt
1 kW Rs 82,000 Rs 82
5 kW Rs 3,85,000 Rs 77
10 kW Rs 6,20,000 Rs 62
15 kW Rs 9,00,000 Rs 60
20 kW Rs 12,20,000 Rs 61
25 kW Rs 14,50,000 Rs 58
50 kW Rs 26,50,000 Rs 53
100 kW Rs 50,00,000 Rs 50
250 kW Rs 1,25,00,000 Rs 50
500 kW Rs 2,40,00,000 Rs 48
1000 kW Rs 4,60,00,000 Rs 46


Off-Grid Rooftop Solar System

Where To Use: Where grid electricity is not available and the peak load is less or around 5 kVA. Generally remote area or places where grid connection is not feasible.

System Size System Cost Cost/Watt
1 kW Rs 1,33,000 Rs 133
2 kW Rs 2,72,000 Rs 136
3 kW Rs 3,99,000 Rs 133
4 kW Rs 5,36,000 Rs 134
5 kW Rs 6,55,000 Rs 131
6 kW Rs 7,86,000 Rs 131
7 kW Rs 8,96,000 Rs 128
8 kW Rs 10,32,000 Rs 129
9 kW Rs 11,34,000 Rs 126
10 kW Rs 12,40,000 Rs 124


Hybrid Rooftop Solar System

Where To Use: Frequent power cut, peak load is less or around 5 kVA, daytime consumption is high etc.  Suitable for normal household and places where electricity consumption is less or around 500 Units (kWh) per month.

System Size System Cost Cost/Watt
1 kW Rs 85,000 Rs 85
2 kW Rs 1,74,000 Rs 87
3 kW Rs 2,55,000 Rs 85
4 kW Rs 3,44,000 Rs 86
5 kW Rs 4,15,000 Rs 83
6 kW Rs 4,98,000 Rs 83
7 kW Rs 5,60,000 Rs 80
8 kW Rs 6,48,000 Rs 81
9 kW Rs 7,02,000 Rs 78
10 kW Rs 7,60,000 Rs 76
