Petrol pumps are often situated in outskirts of the main cities where powercuts are common. Pumps usually consume a lot of electricity as they have to function 24 hours. Petrol pumps in India often rely on diesel generators which are expensive and do not provide instant back-up. A 10kva generator may take 1.5 liters of petrol per hour. On the other hand, solar power system comes at half the cost as it provides free solar electricity for 2 decades. Most petrol pumps, who install solar, recover the full cost of solar installation in less than 3 years!
Off-grid solar package is very popular among petrol pump owners in India. The package consists of Solar PCU, batteries and Solar panels. Batteries store the solar energy generated by PV panels and provide 24 x7 backup to petrol pumps.
Lume Solar serves as an excellent solution for Petrol Pumps Solarization, We have developed solar solutions for Petrol Pumps to provide continuous supply of electricity for smooth operations at a very cost effective manner. The main reason behind the massive revamp of petrol pumps is the demand and supply gap that exists in the Indian power grid. Due to extreme remote locations of petrol Pumps, where power supply is available for few hours or not available at all we install solar systems to provide enough electricity that helps in operating the fuel guns and various other office equipment.
You must be surprised to know that one Petrol pump outlet switching to solar power would free up enough electricity to power 60 households in rural areas.
Switching to solar energy would free you from the adverse effects of load shedding and help save over 70 per cent on electricity and diesel genset bills. You can also claim dual benefits of Government subsidy* and 80 per cent depreciation benefit by switching to solar. Lume, provides the most suitable and optimum solution to eliminate/ reduce use of diesel to generate power at Petrol Pumps. It replaces the conventional DG set with Solar Power Generation set-up and Energy Storage Solution.
This complete customized solar power solution for petrol pumps is an example of how we can utilize the power of innovative renewable technology in providing uninterrupted power to customers & businesses in various applications.
If you have the willingness to go solar, we will find the best way for you to do so.
This is the most-suited solar solution for petrol pumps that are situated away from the main cities and face frequent powercuts because solar energy can be stored in batteries for later use. Off-grid solar package for petrol pumps consists of solar panels, battery bank, and Solar Inverter.
Grid-tie solar installation could be a good choice for petrol pumps situated in cities that do not face many power cuts. This is a battery-less system that consists of grid-tie inverter and solar panels.
Adding to Grid tie system , with net metering facility Surplus solar electricity generated can be fed back into grid through On Grid Solar rooftop System.
