Investment costs for solar power systems depend on the following factors:

  • Type of equipment and capacity of solar power system.
  • Location of solar power system installation.
  • Local labor and material costs.

Energy saving capabilities

Energy saving is the electricity bill that the commercial center does not have to pay to EVN thanks to using electricity from the solar power system.

The amount of electricity produced from a solar power system depends on the following factors:

  • Capacity of solar power system.
  • Intensity of solar radiation at the installation location.
  • Lighting time of day.

Energy savings are calculated according to the following formula:

Energy saving = Amount of electricity produced / Amount of electricity consumed

Determine the payback period

The payback period is the time required for the revenue from energy savings to offset the investment costs.

The payback period is calculated according to the following formula:

Payback period = Investment cost / Energy savings

For example, if the investment cost for the solar power system is 10 billion VND and the energy savings are 2 billion VND/year, the payback period of this project is:

Payback period = 10 billion VND / 2 billion VND/year = 5 years

Calculate expected profit

The expected profit is the electricity bill that the commercial center will receive from selling excess electricity to EVN.

The amount of excess electricity is calculated according to the following formula:

Excess electricity = Amount of electricity produced – Amount of electricity consumed

Electricity selling price is regulated by EVN.

Expected profit is calculated according to the following formula:

Expected profit = Excess electricity x Electricity selling price

For example, if the electricity price is 2,200 VND/kWh and the excess electricity is 1 billion kWh/year, the expected profit of this project is:

Expected profit = 1 billion kWh/year x 2,200 VND/kWh = 2.2 billion VND/year

Thus, after 5 years, this project will pay back capital and begin to bring profit to the shopping center.

The lifespan of a solar power system will be up to 25 – 32 years .
