Many schools and colleges in India are fast realizing that they can save on electricity bills, and send a positive eco-friendly message to the young minds they nurture by installing solar. While some schools and universities choose to install grid-tie solar to get relief from high electricity bills, others prefer off-grid solar installations.
Many schools in metros opt for Grid-tie solar system. This is a battery-less system that consists of grid-tie inverter and solar panels. This system is maintenance-free and helps in saving money on electricity bills. It is also possible to sell surplus solar energy to state electricity board through grid-tie solar installations.
Off-grid solar is widely used by schools and universities in India. It is suitable for areas that face frequent powercuts because it lets you save extra solar energy in batteries for use during powercuts. Solar PCU – off-grid solar inverter, which has an inbuilt solar charge controller, is an important part of any off-grid solar installation.
With our solar charge controllers, any ordinary inverter or battery can be converted into solar power system.
This is the cheapest and most-efficient way to go solar for schools and colleges. Grid-tie and off-grid systems convert DC generated by solar panels into AC because all electrical appliance can run only on AC. Whereas, Su-Kam’s DC system comes with LED Lights, Fans and TV that can run directly on DC. It also has battery to save solar energy for later use.
