An intelligent lady from Mumbai has shifted her complete lifestyle on solar energy. Her house and car now run on solar power, and the lady has been able to cut down her bill costs from 10K to just Rs 300 per month.
Dr. Reema Lewis, a 38-year-old physiotherapist and pilates trainer, who shifted to the Mumbai Metropolitan Region (MMR) after her marriage to heal the residents – have turned her duplex home in Vashi, into a beautiful green living space.
Born and raised in Bengaluru, Reema has always maintained a strong connection with nature and she loves planting and growing trees and flowers. Pursuing her deep love for Mother Earth, Reema has turned her Mumbai home into a nature-friendly living space. She along with the help of her husband, has installed a 5 KW Solar System that powers their complete house.
Electricity Bills Reduced From Rs 10,000 Per Month to Amazing Rs 300 Per Month: All Thanks To Solar Energy!
“When I was expecting in 2010, my husband and I decided to go solar. We had a newly purchased house and believed that the greatest gifts we could offer our newborn son are an environmentally friendly home. One of our first moves was the installation of a solar water heater. All the toilets and kitchens have solar water and we use the water to bathe, wash vegetables, cook and drink,” says Dr. Reema.
Five-years later, the couple turned the complete power supply of their home to solar. They saved money for a 5 KW Solar System. Now their entire home is powered by solar energy.
“Thanks to solar panels. Our electricity bills which would easily touch up to Rs 10,000 per month and even more in summer seasons have now been reduced to just 300 per month. Today, each and every equipment of our house and even my clinic runs on solar power.”
Dr. Reema says that the entire solar system for her house cost around Rs 2.5 Lakh. But she feels like she has paid her home’s electricity bill for 2 years in advance, while she has received a lifetime of free solar power.
Monthly Petrol Expenses Reduced From Rs 9000 Per Month To 500 Per Month!
She also sold her gasoline-fuel vehicle and purchased an electric vehicle. Previously, she used to spend Rs 9000 for petrol a month, but today the average petrol costs are less than Rs 500 because she had an electrical charging unit set up in her garage, that is attached to the tower with her solar PV systems. Her car runs 100 km on a 6-hour charge.
Dr. Reema Lewis has encouraged all her readers to go eco-friendly. This method is not only Earth-friendly but also cost-efficient.
