SETTING UP A SOLAR LAB FOR ITER (Institute of Technical Education and Research), BHUBANESHWAR
Geographical Location: Bhubaneshwar, Odisha.
The Goal: The idea was to educate the youth, such as engineering students at Siksha ‘O’ Anusandhan University, on solar energy and its beneficial effects, and offer a hands-on experience on installing solar products.
The Project: The University installed a 11 KVA solar on-grid system on top of the solar lab roof in addition to a 3 KVA solar off-grid system to be used entirely by the lab to operate 2 units of 1ton inverter model air conditioners, energy efficient ceiling fans of 30 watts, and 10 LED tube lights of 22 watts.
In addition to the first-hand installation project by the students, Sunlit Future assisted the University to design a training course with best practices to be adopted during such an installation.
