Home solar system?

Any one here knows a proper solar system for a home use? with details,,, size of solar panel ect? volts? watts? wagera wagera

and from whre i can buy it from lahore

i really want to know this wagaira wagaira thing as well :D

I also got wind of the same few days back ... tried to google it but of no avail.... A million dollar question :) .

^^^Didn't google well i guess. I found these:

I find it amusing that people think that a solar setup will give them free energy but balk at the upfront payment for the panels, charge controllers, batteries, inverters, etc.

^ Ditto. Every1 wud hav been using it in the west otherwise if it was that economical and advantageous.

I reckon wait for a decade or half nd u'll see new materials capable of producing photovoltaic energy at much lower costs.

Recently a relative converted power supply of his whole house (no air conditioners) to solar. Approximately costed him 25 lacs. All equipment was imported, nothing purchased locally. The price includes custom bribes.

Well--actually solar panels are far far more useful and the only reason they are NOT used is very high upfront cost. Why would West go for solar panels when they have winter for more than half of a year...

Coming back to OP question, I was listening on GEO that solar panel setup of 1KW would cost 5 lac and they say that 1KW is more than enough for any household...

One iron consumes 1 kW - 2 kW of electricity so, how can you say 1 KW is enough for household needs? Even a refrigerator consumes 90 - 250 watts and every house must have atleast one refrigerator. Fans, lights all add up to more than 1000 W. And if there is Air Conditioner, total consumption becomes 2500 - 5000 W or higher.

^it should go WITHOUT saying that iron or refrigerator or AC's MUST NOT be switched ON when you are using 1KW system. This is only for fans or lights. Moreover, if you have loadshedding of 6-8 hours a day(I am specifically talking about Lahore) then there is really no need of switching on heavy duty things within those hours.

This is called spamming :blink:

Dear according to a programe of Capital Talk, Rukhsana Zubair has told that for 1 Watt it will be 5 Lac rupees expenses

LOL. 1kW maybe, certainly not 1W.

1 Watt is equal to 1 Volt when 1 is Amps :D maybe it was 1kW or 1 mW

No doubt, inflation is everywhere but 5 lac for 1W.....NOOOOOOOOOOO...:P

10-15 lacs for 2-3kw is not that bad i think... only if it runs flawlessly for 5-7 years.

^10-15 lac is seriously too much, given we live in Pakistan where ..........(leave it..:D)

actually it runs much more than that.

For a proper solar system, the cost of replacing the batteries is almost same what you save on electricity bills.
