Cost of Rooftop Solar System (On-Grid, Off-Grid, Hybrid) in India

Cost of Rooftop Solar System (On-Grid, Off-Grid, Hybrid) in India

December 07, 2016 0 Comments

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

 

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 (kW) System Cost (Rs)
0.5 48,000
0.75 62,000
1 74,000
1.25 89,000
1.5 1,19,000
1.75 1,35,000
2 1,46,000
2.5 1,77,000
3 2,09,000
4 2,88,000
5 3,43,000
6 4,06,000
7 4,59,000
8 5,16,000
9 5,71,000
10 6,12,000

 

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 (kW) System Cost (Rs)
5 3,43,000
6 3,99,000
7 4,59,000
8 5,07,000
9 5,52,000
10 5,80,000
15 8,53,000
20 11,15,000
25 13,65,000
30 15,40,000
40 19,65,000
50 21,81,000
75 31,85,000
100 40,26,000

 

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 (kW) System Cost (Rs)
0.5 63,000
0.75 85,000
1 1,01,000
1.25 1,24,000
1.5 1,61,000
1.75 1,84,000
2 2,02,000
2.5 2,48,000
3 2,94,000
4 4,01,000
5 4,85,000
6 5,76,000
7 6,57,000
8 7,42,000
9 8,26,000
10 8,95,000

  

The cost of rooftop solar system is decreasing every year. This is due to reduction of solar cell price, economy of scale and new technologies. This table will be updated from time to time. You can also check the updated cost of rooftop solar system yourself by generating a quotation here.

Tips: System size depends on electricity consumption, available shadow free space for the solar panel installation and the amount of autonomy needed. For example, a 1 kW solar photovoltaic system can produce 120 Units (kWh) of electricity per month and needs around 10 square meter (108 square feet) of shadow free space to install the solar panels.

So, if the average monthly electricity consumption is 120 Units, then a rooftop solar system of 1 kW is needed. If consumption is 600 Units, then 5 kW is needed and so on. Similarly, if the available space on the roof is 100 square meter, a 10 kW rooftop solar system on that roof can be installed (since 1 kW system requires 10 square meter for the installation).
