TOP 10 REASONS YOU NEED TO SWITCH TO LED LIGHT BULBS

Light emitting diodes (LEDs) have been turning up all over the place, which leads one to wonder why. What's so great about these little lights? Why are we seeing more and more LED light bulbs cropping up on everything from cars to traffic lights?
  1. LED light bulbs last longer.

    Without a filament to break or burn out, LED light bulbs can last for over 100,000 hours without showing their age (that's over eleven years at full brightness). This lifespan is twice that of typical fluorescent bulbs and twenty times longer than incandescent light bulbs.
  2. They are energy efficient.

    An incandescent light bulb loses 80 percent of its energy to heat, leaving only the last 20 percent for light. LED light bulbs turn this around, giving up a scant 20 percent of their energy to heat loss. Not only that, but they operate at 10 to 20 percent of the power required for incandescent bulbs of similar brightness.
  3. LEDs are more colorful.

    LED light bulbs can be made in a vast array of colors without the use of extra filters, which brings down production costs. They also provide a truer, brighter color than a filtered bulb.
  4. LED light bulbs work in silence.

    The days of humming bulbs came to an end with the creation of LEDs, so there's no need to lose sanity listening to the thrum, tick, or ping of other light bulbs.
  5. They are incredibly safe.

    With so little energy lost to heat and so little energy used overall, LED light bulbs run cool, which means no burnt fingers or burnt down houses. They are extremely durable thanks to their solid-state construction, so there's no broken glass to deal with, either.
  6. LED light bulbs are focused.

    LEDs can be made to focus without the use of extra reflectors or lenses, which means less bulk and lower cost for the same beam of light.
  7. They are the best for dimming.

    Incandescent bulbs turn yellow when dimmed, while LED light bulbs retain their true colors.
  8. LEDs are versatile.

    Thanks to the wide array of colors and shapes LEDs be made to replace most any light bulb. Their diminutive size and power-sipping nature also open up a world of possibility, from infrared remote control lights to ultra-light headlamps.
  9. LED light bulbs bring light quickly.

    Lighting up to their full brightness in microseconds, LEDs are a safer choice when reaction time is a factor, like when that car in the fast lane slams on the brakes.
  10. They promise a brighter future.

    LED light bulbs don't contain mercury, like compact fluorescent bulbs do. Combining that with the fact that they outlast their energy efficient cousins, makes the choice to go LED clear as day.
LED light bulbs have a staggering number of uses, and somehow they keep excelling at all of them. When it's time to shed light on the subject, this jack-of-all-trades masters all.

Rooftop photovoltaic power station in India

rooftop photovoltaic power station, or rooftop PV system, is a photovoltaic system that has its electricity-generating solar panels mounted on the rooftop of a residential or commercial building or structure.[1] The various components of such a system include photovoltaic modulesmounting systemscablessolar inverters and other electrical accessories.[2]
Rooftop mounted systems are small compared to ground-mounted photovoltaic power stations with capacities in the megawatt range. Rooftop PV systems on residential buildings typically feature a capacity of about 5 to 20 kilowatts (kW), while those mounted on commercial buildings often reach 100 kilowatts or more.
  • Are you tired of paying Energy Company month after month for electricity?
  • Are you tired of the constant rate hikes and surcharges on your Electricity bill?
  • Why not add a solar energy system to your home and start producing your own electricity!
  • Produce Solar Energy - Earn Revenue
Karnataka Government Provides an opportunity to its Electricity Consumers to Install Grid connected solar rooftop System. As per the Solar policy 2014-21 of Govt. of Karnataka, All ESCOMs in Karnataka has implemented the programme for installation of Grid connected Solar Rooftop PV system on the Rooftops of Residential/Commercial/Educational/Industrial Organizations in Karnataka to encourage generation of Solar Energy.
Who are Eligible:
Under this program, the consumers can setup solar PV plants on rooftops of buildings of:
  • Individual households
  • Educational institutions
  • Commercial establishments
  • Industries etc.
In fact anybody in Karnataka who takes energy from respective ESCOM is eligible under this scheme.
Capacity Limits of SRTPV:
  • Capacity limit is from 1KWp to 1000 KWp.
  • FROM 1 KWp to a 500 KWp (to those who avail subsidy.)
  • There is no upper limit for generation a roof top applicant with an Installed Capacity of 1KW can generate up to 1MWp.
Power Purchase Tariff:
  • Tariff as per KERC ORDER - DATED 10.10.2013 on Net Meter basis are as follows: (Tenure of the Power purchase agreement shall be for 25 years.)
Type of Solar PlantApproved Tariff in Rs./Unit
Roof Top Solar PV plants (Without Subsidy)9.56
Roof Top Solar PV plants (with MNRE subsidy)7.2
Incentives to Go Solar:
  • Net Metering: Net Metering allows the Solar Project Owner to feed the excess Solar Power to grid when the load available is low, say, during weekends in office buildings. The excess power fed is offset against the electricity used from the grid in the electricity bill.
  • Accelerated Depreciation: Accelerated depreciation of 80% is available under the Income Tax act for the Commercial and Industrial rooftop solar PV systems. This can provide significant savings to a SRTPV power plant generator who is a taxable assesse and has sufficient profits against which the depreciation can be charged.
  • Section 32: of Indian Income Tax Act. Provides Accelerated Depreciation Of 80% of the Invested Capital in To Solar PV Projects to Professional Companies with Tax Liability. Investors Can Set off Their Tax Liability on the Taxable Income to the tune of 80% in the 1st Year and subsequently 20% in the 2nd Year.
  • Section 80-IA (sub section 4) of income tax Act, 1961 allows 100% tax waiver on the income generated for any single 10 year period during first 15 years of operational life of a power generation project.
