Inverter required: 5 kW
Battery required: 13 kWH
Solar panel required: 5 kW to generate 20kWH /day (4 kWH / day as per OEM recommendation)
Space required: 200 Sqft (for solar Panel)  

Energy bill calculation:
Per day consumption: 20kWH
Per month consumption: 600kWH
For 600kWH electric bill shall be (including demand charges): Rs 5200
Considering AC will run for 4 months in a year, Electric Bill for those 4 months shall be: Rs.20,800.00
Balance 8 months electric bill shall be: Rs 24,000.00
Total electric bill for one year shall be: Rs 43,800.00

Advantages of Off Gird System
1.Green Power
2.Zero carbon emission for the power Generation
3.Zero GWP (Global Warming Potential) for the Power generation
4.Pollution Free Energy
5.Reliable Power without Interruption and constant Voltage
6.Safely usage of Equipment without any Surge and no need of Stabilizer
7.Low maintenance (If Lithium battery is used)
8.No electric bill (or minimal electric bill as no consumption)

Disadvantages of Off Gird System
1.Initial investment is high
2.Weather dependent. Less power in Cloudy days
3.Fairly large space Required for Solar Panel.
4.High maintenance for lead acid battery
5.High cost for battery replacement, every 3-5 years (for lead acid battery)
If You chose ‘Lithium Ion’ battery, then point no. 4 and 5 can be taken care.
