Summers are in, and this time, weathermen predict the hottest of all summers for us in India. While as the owner of house, you must be feeling jittery that as your family starts using air conditioners more often, the electricity bill is bound to increase, here’re few cool tricks that you can share with your family and ensure that your electricity bill is at bay.

Common Occurrence:
Most members of our family have a habit of running their ACs at 20-22 degrees and when they feel cold, they cover their bodies with blankets. This leads to double loss. HOW???

Concept of body temperature tolerance
Do you know that the temperature of our body is 35 degrees Celsius? The body can tolerate temperature ranging from 23 degrees to 39 degrees easily. It is called human body temperature tolerance. When the Room temperature is lower or higher, the body reacts, by sneezing, shivering, etc.

When we run the AC at 19-20-21 degrees, room temperature is much lower than the normal body temperature and it starts the process called hypothermia in the body which affects blood circulation, whereby, blood supply in some parts of the body is not adequate. There are many disadvantages in long term such as arthritis etc.

Other health effects of low temperatures
Most of the time there is no sweating when AC is ON, so the toxins of the body can not come out and in the long term, cause risk of many more diseases, such as skin allergy or itching, high blood pressure etc.

When you run AC at such low temperatures, it’s  compressor continuously works on full energy, even if it is 5 stars, excessive power is consumed and it blows money from your pocket.

Key Question
What is the best way to run AC then?

Set up Temperatures for 25 Degrees.

You don’t get any benefit by first setting Temperature of AC to 20 – 21 and then wrap the sheet/ thin Quilt around you. It is always better to run AC at 25+ degrees and put the fan on at slow speed.

The benefits

This will cost less electricity and your body temperature will also be in the range and there will be no ill effect on your health.

Another advantage of this is that the AC will consume less electricity, the blood pressure on the brain will also decrease and saving will ultimately help reduce the effects of global warming.

Here’s how –

Suppose you save about 5 units per AC per night by running AC on 26 Degree and other 10 lakh houses also do like you then we save 5 million units of electricity per day. At the regional level this savings can be crores of units per day. Please consider the above and do not run your AC at all below 25 degrees. Keep your body and environment healthy.

Share it with your network!

With little respite from the government measures of subsidising electricity costs for the rural consumers, high transmission and distribution losses and volatile price of electricity from sources like coal, it is expected that our electricity tariffs would go up by 4~5 percent every year for several years to come. The future of electricity consumption looks grim not just for the industrialists but also for the residential owners.

To brace ourselves from a futuristic perspective, we need to start exploring renewable energy, especially solar in India, combinations with our existing systems to become reliant.  Apart from seeking to save the planet; it’s pure economics to produce electricity than to fall back on expensive and polluting diesel generators to keep the lights on.

Among the array of renewable sources available, Rooftop solar is the fastest growing segment in renewable energy in India, driven by large customers, according to Bloomberg New Energy Finance research. Especially with  Net Metering initiatives- a process where all the extra units that you generate from your solar system that go unused, are sent back to the main grid and adjusted monthly against your consumption from the network, helps the user to be self-sufficient financially as well.

In India, we envision a future where we can meet the ever-increasing energy demand in an economical and more importantly, in a sustainable manner. In the renewable energy space, solar rooftops make economic and commercial sense. The  transition to solar households has never been this easy with the right amount of government intervention.

Why buy electricity when you can produce your own.Having said that, one needs to carefully asses the ground reality  and handpick  a system that fits one’s energy needs and your finance capabilities.

Do you have a roof that can support solar panels?
The first and foremost thing one needs to understand before instaling residential solar is to check on how much shadow-free space is available. If one’s roof is covered in the shade most of the day throughout the year, then it might not have a favourable advantage to justify the costs of solar panels. Also, it is essential to understand the placement of panels, quality of components and expertise of the installer.

How to determine the consumption rate of your household?
It is also important to size the system appropriately to make the most economic sense out of the investment in the rooftop solar installation. One needs to asses the amount of electricity consumed utilised by a family. What one must also factor in is- the rising electricity tariffs set by the various state governments.

For instance, a monthly bill of Rs 5,000 on average can be offset by installing a 5kW rooftop solar plant at home.

Buy the system or directly buy the electricity?
Every household will need to calculate their cost-benefit analysis depending on their spending power. Understand the various financing schemes offered by the service providers so that the solar system fits your energy needs and your finances. The most common options available are as below:

Direct Buy
•    Own your system
•    Avoid interest charges
•    Get all the benefits of solar from Day 1 of installation

Purchase clean electricity produced from solar
•    Get solar at zero upfront cost
•    Start saving on your electricity bill from day 1
•    Affordable monthly payouts

Every emerging economy envisions a future where it can meet its ever-increasing energy demand in an economical and more importantly, in a sustainable manner. India has climbed to the second position from the third in last year’s ‘Renewable energy country attractiveness’ index released by Ernst & Young. This rapid progress, especially in India, is primarily due to a combination of stable government intervention and the attractive economics behind the solar power. Industrial entities are the early adopters of renewable energy. However, the adoption of solar power for domestic consumption has gained momentum due to the rise in electricity bills, interrupted power supplies and energy-intensive lifestyles.

Although the government has incentivised the infrastructure feasibility required for residential solar, a lot is yet to be changed regarding consumer behaviour and preferences. Those as mentioned earlier are the key aspects that could potentially bolster residential solar into a new era of carbon-free energy In India.

Energy Independence:
By instilling the notion of homegrown electricity among people, suppliers can reduce country’s reliance on burning coal and nuclear resources for power. This self-reliance could also facilitate optimised and conscious consumption.

Real-Time Monitoring:
Monitoring and analysing data from residential solar is an integral part of a solar implementation. Current information about the energy created and utilised help households to customise their needs based on dynamic requirements with minimal effort and risk.

Efficient Financing:
While solar power is economical in the long run, most of the investment needs to be made upfront. Strong government-led financial incentives such as EMI and credit policies could bolster the adoption rate.
