VERTUS is offering a new cost effective solution that will give significant and reliable savings on diesel costs to its consumer, which can unlock a large diesel abatement market for solar PV in India.
Intuitively, it makes a lot sense for companies with high diesel consumption to go solar. The most productive use of solar power happens during shedding, when companies have to use costly power from diesel gensets. Now dependency on diesel gensets can easily be minimised by replacing them with solar PV. The financial returns from substituting diesel from rooftop solar needs to be calculated carefully because they have very different cost structures as with Diesel gensets- The initial cost of the system is low but running cost (both fuel and maintenance) is high but in case of Rooftop solar PV- Initial investment is high but running cost is very low.
