How to Get Subsidy.
  • Submit your solar system projects with full details of financial, technical, maintenance and operation to MNRE via district Head of state nodal agency.
  • Approval by MNRE.
  • Open tender is invited, channel partner will be selected by bidding process.

Return on Investment on solar

                Return on investment are based on unit produced by solar system every month and price of per unit taken by electricity board.

For Example: – If we have 5 kilowatts on grid solar system, So the Unit produced by solar system is up to 600 units, and the unit price of Per unit is Rs 8, Then we can say that we have saved Rs 4800 per month. And If we calculate total amount invested on 5 kilowatts on grid solar plant is approx. 250000 after Govt subsidy. After All calculation our return on investment will be within 5-6 years. And normally solar system has 25 years of warranty

Extra Benefit by Net Metering.

                Net metering is a system to net the energy between export of production energy and Import of grid energy for a billing month.

In an On Grid Solar PV system production of surplus energy may happen during less demand period. This surplus of energy export to the main grid, and during night this energy drawn from the grid, and all this export import calculation done by Net Metering

Tax Benefits

Under Section 32 of Income tax burden in the first few years of the project, Govt Of India provide Accelerated Depreciation benefit up to 100 % of the total project cost. (80% is Accelerated Depreciation Tax and 20% of additional Dep).
