In most cities in India, where the sun shines for more than 330 days, use of solar energy has become imperative to answer your load shedding problems. Don’t be surprised, if you are driving in rural areas and see huge solar panels alongside schools. We have successful case studies of more than 100 installations all across India, where schools management have immensely benefited by switching to solar energy. There are many reasons why the management of educational institutions would like to switch to solar power to power their schools.
Why go solar?
Installing solar panels can reduce your school’s elec¬tricity bill significantly. In many places, the cost of solar electricity is the same or lower than what your school is currently paying. With an average lifespan of 25 years, a solar panel investment can save millions of dollars in the long run.
By going solar your school can also protect against rising electricity costs. Signing a contract to purchase a solar system (or solar electricity) allows schools to guarantee their electricity prices for up to 20 years, saving districts money and making budgeting easier.
We carefully evaluate each and every educational institution to offer a customized solution suiting their requirements and needs. With optimum designing of electronics, we provide stable power to science laboratories computer labs, dinning halls residential schools we have best solutions for food processing at schools thus reducing number of electronic failures in long run.
Create Educational Opportunities
Schools have enormous incentive to go solar, not just to save money, but to create an energy- and sustain¬ability-conscious student body. Since it is important that students be aware of the huge environmental challenges we face this century, schools serve as stewards of sustainability and cornerstones of green initiatives that benefit their community. With solar sys¬tems, students are able to see first-hand how sunlight is converted to electricity and solar installations can be integrated into a school’s math, science, and technolo¬gies programs to improve test scores in those fields.
In addition, Solar Energy Industries Association predicts that, by 2016, the surging demand for solar systems will add hundreds of thousands of green-collar jobs to the economy, including those in research, development, manufacturing, construction, sales, and marketing. Solar curricula help prepare students for these types of jobs.
Today’s youth need to understand energy in order to wisely power their homes, their cars and their careers. The Solar In the Schools outreach program is devoted to teaching the growing importance of energy – both how it is used and where it is sourced. Our hands-on renewable energy education approach not only teaches these vital concepts, it instills precious hope for the future.
How does a solar system work?
The vast majority of school solar systems are grid-connected: the solar panels are connected to the local utility electricity grid and supplement your school’s normal power. Grid-connected systems operate via a process called net metering.
When the sun is shining, the system produces electric¬ity that runs through the inverter and then powers the building. If the solar panels produce more electricity than is needed, the excess power is sent out onto the electricity grid and your school receives a credit for that power (as if your electric meter were running backwards). At night and when the school’s power demands exceed the solar system’s production, your building continues to use electricity from the grid. At the end of the month the school’s electric bill reflects the total energy your building used minus the electric¬ity that was produced by the solar system. This process of calculating the total power used is called net meter¬ing. Specific rules governing the details of how net metering is calculated vary state by state. For more information, check DSIRE, a database of state renew-able energy laws and incentives.
By adopting solar net metering concept for educational institutions for example schools have monthly 4 to7 days as holidays and in a year 60 to 90 days are holidays. Even in these holidays also schools can be benefited by adopting solar net metering for schools can save their electricity bills by giving excess power to the grid produced by solar panels on holidays
How large a system can we install?
The size of a solar installation is measured in kilowatts (kW). A solar system on a residential home is typically between 3 and 5 kW, but For many solar projects on schools are 50 kW to 250 kW, or more.
How does the process of going solar look?
In general, the process of going solar includes: Looking at one year of electric bills for your school or district. This allows you to determine how much power your facility uses and how much a solar system could offset. Briefly assessing your school’s roof and/or grounds to see if solar is a good fit. This involves making sure your roof isn’t shaded, too old, or unable to support panels. The “Is Solar a Good Fit for my School?” section of this guide goes into more detail about the process. Reviewing the purchasing and/or financing op¬tions available to your school, which will depend on the type of solar financing your state allows and whether grants and incentives are available. Completing a rough financial analysis to give you a sense of the total costs, cost savings, and energy impacts of a solar project.
Is solar a good fit for my school?
Two key concerns for any school interested in going solar are the safety and quality of the installation. At minimum, your building should: Face due south, to maximize the amount of sunlight the panels collect. If your pitched roof does not face south, you can still use a solar electric system, but the performance will be about 5% less with a southeast- or southwest-facing system. East¬ern, western, and northern exposures are not recommended for solar electric systems. Flat roofs facing any direction are a good fit for solar, since the panels can be adjusted to face due south.
