What is a 3kW Solar System?

A 3KW system has the capacity to produce 12 units per day, meaning it can generate approximately 12 kWh of electricity daily. A typical household in Pakistan usually consumes between 300 to 400 units per month. Therefore, a 3KW system can adequately meet the needs of a family that requires approximately 400 units per month.

An ideal 3KW system consists on:

  • 6 Solar Panels of minimum 550 Watts
  • An inverter  5kW 
  • Roof mounting 
  • Battey 
  • Wire 
  • Other essential items to fix the system

How many appliances can I use on a 3KW solar system?

  • 1AC-Inverter (1.5-ton=2100watts)/Inverter refrigerator(900watts) (one major load at once)
  • 2 Fans (120watts)
  • LCD (100watts)
  • Water Pump (500watts)
  • 6 Lights (90watts)

3kW Solar System Price in Pakistan?

This price varies depending on which solar panels you use, the company, the wattage, the type of inverter used, whether the system is on-grid, off-grid, or hybrid, and obviously the roof mounting, stands, and wiring. All these factors have a significant impact on the total cost, either increasing or decreasing it.

3kW Hybrid Solar System Price in Pakistan

The hybrid solar system is the most efficient compared to on-grid and off-grid systems. The reason is that you can enjoy the benefits of direct solar energy and also use electricity from the grid as well. If your solar system generates extra electricity, it will not go to waste. This is why the hybrid system is popular, although it is slightly more expensive than the other two types. However, its benefits are significantly greater. Additionally, you can take advantage of Net Metering with a hybrid system.

The price for a 3KW hybrid solar system is approximately Rs. 550000 with AGS batteries.

Conclusion

A 3-kilowatt solar system is the most affordable option in the solar industry. It’s a good choice for many middle-class families because it fits their budget. Let’s say a typical home in Pakistan uses about 300 units of electricity each month. If each unit costs 21 rupees, then the monthly bill would be 6,300 rupees (300 units x 21 rupees per unit). But remember, you don’t just pay for the electricity you use; there are extra charges too.

So, it’s a smart move to install a 3-kilowatt solar system in your home. It might seem expensive at first, but it’s important to think about the long-term benefits. When you do a cost-benefit analysis, which compares the costs and benefits, you’ll see that investing in a solar system pays off. Even though it’s a big expense now, you can save too much from the electricity bill.
