Can you find out the per square meter cost of mirrors in India? This is still the most expensive part, as far as i know.

In Rajkot the mirrors were 9 Rupees per square food. So about 100 rupees per square meter, about 2 dollars. I have the figures for cost of steel per kilogram lying around somewhere, which was also significantly cheaper than what I'm used to here in Europe. Main costs were labour, as whole factory salary is required to build 1 or 100 machines. So 7500 would be for a single purchase, whereas 5000 would be multiple, including profit margin. This is why tinytech is currently building 5 64 m^2 machines to decrease labour per m^2 as much as possible and be able to offer good price for even single order.
