20 Oct What is the cost of 1 kWh solar system in India?
The cost of 1 kW solar power plant in India ranges in cost from ₹50,000 to ₹120,000 depending on components used.
To Explain Further,
In simple terms, it’s like buying a bike, you can get a hero cd dawn which costs 39k or you can buy a high-class premium bike like Royal Enfield classic which costs ₹ 1.45 lakh.
it all comes down to functionality of the SPV system.
Components can be divided in two types-
Economy brands comprising of manufacturers of panels & inverters, companies which are less than 5 yrs old (Indian & international make)
& Premium brands – of components, with presence in continents
eg – Chinese , German & Japanese make
with facilities existing for more than 10 years.
Any type of system you opt would deliver 1 Kwp of power when commissioned for live power generation, but in the end it all boils down to your choice, you either buy a samsung mobile phone or an iphone, basic function of it is to make a call.
In my opinion, one should opt for best configuration of Solar panels, Inverters, cables & mounting structure, for once it is fixed on your rooftop or landmark, the system carries a 25 year + age for power generation & you will get the return for your investment in maximum of 5-6 years no matter how expensive brands you opt for, and after those 5 years, the system is basically generating you money while being parked on your rooftop.
Cost of 1KW Solar Power Plant system can be split as
Solar Photovoltaic Panels (mono/poly crystalline)
range ₹25 to ₹55 per Watt.
(here the cost can also go upwards till ₹150/watt, depending on the technology you opt, HIT, PERC, N/P type, BIPV, cdte Etc)
Solar inverter – 3 types

2.Off grid – ₹9 to ₹14 per watt.

mounting frames – you can play with custom aesthetically pleasing designs for Mounting your Solar panels to harness sunlight, provide shade & also increase the appeal of your installation.

In the end i would like to tell you a secret about Solar EPC industry,
Don’t just opt for a solar power plant installation based on the lowest cost fot installation,
this is the future, & you are investing a good amount of money in it, learn about it, ask a lot of questions & choose for your self, because it’s your asset you are buying,

and the reason that your loan would be paid of in under 6 years from your energy bill savings, so it’s better to buy the best money can buy in this Solar sector.
