Why is Decentralized Solar so important?
Grid: ₹4 to 9 per kWh: ram-bharose (as per god’s will)
Diesel generator: ₹24 per unit at 85% load: instantaneous
- at 40% generator load, costs goes up to ₹34 per unit
Battery back-up: storage costs ₹12-15 + ₹5 per kWh
Solar PV: under ₹5 per kWh when dc is used: day time only
- Conversion to AC may add ₹1.50 per unit; No land-cost added
