Why Should Investors invest in Grid Tied Solar Plants?

Investor receives a monthly payment from the customer for the total number of units consumed from the rooftop plant, as investor owns the solar plant, investor is eligible for claiming depreciation on the capital cost of the system and 10 year tax holiday on income generated from the solar plant

For commercial consumers, the debate of whether solar is viable or not has already passed because commercial consumers are paying upwards of Rs10/unit (kWH) in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana whereas via third party solar PPA, they can save up to 10%-15% on the per unit cost of electricity without incurring the upfront CAPEX. That translates to significant savings over a long term

Commercial consumers have adequate space to go solar and third party solar PPA is not only viable but a very attractive proposition for them. For Commercial consumers in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana, third party solar PPA is a very affordable and the most cost effective way to opt for solar power.

For Investors investing in solar makes sense economically and environmentally, because the investment is risk-protected, and the returns are solid, Thanks to government tax credits and depreciation benefits, it’s now very profitable to invest in solar

Who is motivated to install a Solar Grid Solar Plant?

Residential and Commercial customers who are paying more than ₹10,000 in monthly electricity bills are willing installing a grid tied solar system to save on their electricity bills by 10% – 15%

See Grid-Tied Rooftop Solar Plants with Net-Metering for details

What is the Economics of 10 KW Grid Tied Solar Rooftop plant?

Below are the assumptions for economics of a 10 KW grid-tied solar rooftop plant

Cost of setting up a 10 KW Grid Tied Solar Plant = ₹ 7.0 Lakhs
PPA Sale Price to Consumer = ₹ 8.00/Unit
O&M Costs = ₹ 15,000/Year

10 KW plant produces around 15,000 units per year, this number is arrived based on the fact that in AP conditions 1KW generates on average 5 units per day multiplied by 300 sunny days in a year

Total Revenue (15000 * ₹ 8.00 (PPA Price)) = ₹ 1.20 Lakhs
Total Expenses = ₹ 15,000.00 (O&M Costs)
PBIDT (Profit Before Depreciation and Taxes) = ₹ 1.05 Lakhs
Income Tax (Income Tax Holiday for 10 Years) = ₹ 0.00
Profit After Tax (PAT) = ₹ 1.05 Lakhs

Project IRR (ROI) = 15%
Payback Period = 6.5 Years

Above financial analysis gives you a good idea on profitability of a grid tied solar plant, Solar plant provides an 15% for the first 10 years and 10% for the next 15 years, which is decent, considering the absence of risk as in other businesses and this model is immune to market conditions
