We at Western Consultancy provide customized solar power solution for petrol pumps that shall help the owners and customers in combating the hazards of intermittent power supply in this business. The customization of the solar system varies from pump to pump depending upon their energy requirement and availability of grid power in the area.
A Brief Overview: India has over 50,000 plus petrol pump stations and a petrol pump requires more than 5 KW of electricity every day for its day to day fuel dispensing operations depending upon the size of the pump station. This amounts to a total capacity of over 1,840 KW of power required for a year for one petrol pump. Most of the petrol pumps in India derive power from Diesel Generator sets. The operation cost for running the pumps on diesel generator sets is very high. To give one an approximate figure, there is a loss of Rs 1500-2000 per day as operation cost for running the pump on diesel generator sets. This amounts to a total loss of up to Rs 5, 47,500/- to 7, 30,000/- every year by a single petrol pump in India. If one calculates the loss incurred by the petrol pumps as a result of high operation costs by using diesel generator sets, the amount would run into millions of rupees.
In the Current scenario most petrol pumps require to be run on a 24x7 basis thereby requiring an intelligent power management system. Alternate power sources like diesel generators have a higher switchover time and the dispenser pump shuts down almost instantly. Power fluctuations also end-up damaging dispensing units at petrol pumps. Sudden power failure leads to loss of fuel, time and money of both the customer and the petrol pump owner.
Petrol pumps in small cities face major energy crises because of irregular power supply. In far worse situations are the petrol pumps in remote locations which have no electricity, face erratic power supply or have grid supply for a minimal time period. Diesel Generator sets are used as an alternative to electricity from the grid in these areas. However, this proves to be very expensive as the fuel and maintenance cost of diesel generator sets is very high.
The rise in electricity costs from the grid is incumbent with the rise of the cost of non-renewable energy sources in the near future. The rise in electricity and fuel costs is going to put excessive pressure on businesses like petrol pumps. The only solution to combat this high rise in fuel and electricity costs is to adopt renewable sources of power like solar.
Easy Option Of Grid Tie Solar Systems That Eliminate The Use Of Batteries -
Since most petrol pumps offer only day time operations, grid tie solar systems become easy options for these pumps. The grid tie systems offer 98% efficiency in deriving solar power and eliminate the use of batteries completely thereby saving space and costs.
Eco Friendly -
Unlike conventional energy fuel, solar power package solution doesn't emit any gases or leave any residues, thereby contributing to a greener environment and reducing one's carbon footprint.
No Extra Space Required For The System -
A solar system's panels require open space at the pump to be installed. Only the PCU/inverter and batteries (in case of off grid systems) require storage space.
