Advantages of Using Solar Power in Petrol Pumps

India has over 50,000 petrol pumps catering to the demand of the country. And do you know how much electricity a petrol pump needs every day? It requires more than 5 KW of electricity every day for their operations. This amounts to a total capacity of over 1,440 KW of power required for a year per petrol station. Running your petrol pump on electricity is possible in the big and medium cities but the petrol pumps, especially in rural India, derive power from diesel generators sets as they do not have a continuous power supply or do not have power lines.  The operation cost for running the pumps on diesel generators sets is very high. So using solar panels is more advantageous than a diesel generator. Use of solar energy in petrol pumps has proven to offer reliable operations of dispensing units even in load shedding hours. The dispensing units last long as the solar system provides superior power quality.

  • Can be used on pre-installed inverters
  • Economic, Smaller, hybrid systems with battery banks
  • The best solution for places with DG usage of more than 8 hrs
  • Saves on monthly expenditure on consumption of diesel used in DG sets
  • Uninterrupted power supply
  • No voltage fluctuations
  • Can work in synchronization with Grid & DG sets
  • Really long life ( Solar panels - 25 yrs; Electronic devices - 5yrs)
  • Zero maintenance
  • Easily expandable at minimal costs
  • Income tax benefits

Grid-Tied Solar Panels works best where there are no power failures or where diesel generators are used in absence of grid supply. Off Grid Solar Panels works best when there is no electricity.

A petrol pump that switches to solar energy makes available enough power for around 60 houses in rural areas. Even cost-wise, solar petrol pumps work out to be cheaper. The solar power assembly is subsidized by the government. Monthly savings result in the petrol pump dealer recovering the cost of solar panels in just a couple of years. Being commercial establishments, petrol pumps attract high power tariffs. Now, solar power is becoming cheaper than coal-generated or other fossil fuel electricity. Establishments have all the more reason to opt for renewable energy.

Globally, 2.8 billion people lack access to clean cooking facilities. By 2030, 2.3 billion people will still lack access to clean cooking facilities. In India, an estimated 780 million people rely on biomass for cooking., (almost 60% of households still cook with biomass). The country with the largest population without clean cooking access, Indian government promotion of LPG and improved biomass cookstoves means that over 300 million people gain access to clean cooking facilities by 2030, but more than one person in three remains without. In contrast with the huge strides made in electricity access in India, the number of people without clean cooking access over the last 15 years has only increased by 80 million.
