Educational Institutions such as Schools, Universities, Colleges, Training Centers, Institutes are running during the day time and electricity is important to run it. These educational institutions are running on either electricity or generators. Major appliances are running in these institutions are computers, laptops, lights, fans, water cooling machine, cctv cameras, water pump, air conditioners, printers, and more. Without electricity these appliances can not run that's why generators are running here during the power cut. There are major problems such as high diesel costs and paying monthly electricity bills. Many educational institutions are switching on solar energy to reduce electricity bill and diesel cost. The main benefits of installing solar power plants in educational institutions are - electrical appliances can run directly on sunlight during the daytime because institutions open at 8 am and close at 3 pm. At this time, solar panels generate sufficient energy.
Generally, an off grid solar system is the suitable solar system for educational institutions because it has an energy storage system. That means, an extra energy can be stored in the battery and during cloudy weather or night time, electrical appliances can run on the battery.
There are some limitations of this solar system, such as its price is higher than on grid solar systems. When you plan to install an off grid solar system, you don't need to take permission from the DISCOM (electricity board). But, when you plan it more than 10kW, you should take guidance from a solar expert. Loom Solar, leading rooftop solar company in India, provides an engineer visit to survey your institutions.
