Is this due to your solar power credit from the grid? Are you supplying to the grid?

Default Re: Using Solar / Wind Power in India (EV charging, home etc.)

In another news, there appears to be some evolving situation of India pioneering a global strategy [one sun, one world, one grid] in creation of regional and international interconnected green grids.


“One Sun One World One Grid" (OSOWOG) plan - an ambitious global electricity grid

one of the most ambitious schemes undertaken by any country and is of global significance in terms of sharing economic benefits

Creation of regional and international interconnected green grids can enable sharing of renewable energy across international borders and also balancing. Such grids should work in tandem with the existing grids and will not require parallel grid infrastructure, thus requiring only incremental investment.

The global grid plan may also leverage the International Solar Alliance (ISA) co-founded by India that has 67 countries as members. It has become India’s calling card on climate change and is increasingly being viewed as a foreign policy tool

The savings is large because for electricity consumption of 500 Units and above, we have to pay ₹7.5 per unit.
Cumulative solar export stands at 12709 units, this excludes the solar power consumed by us during the day.

12709*7.5 = 95317.5 INR savings in close to 27 months.
