      A 1 KW On Grid system would cost Rs 1,10,000. Government subsidy is available for residential user upto 50% in Tamilnadu.
      So the effective amount you have to pay for a 1 KW system is Rs.60,000 only.
      In addition to this amount you have to get a solar Net Meter from TNEB.
      You can contact 9952968595 for more details.
