Solar for Academic Institutes

Why Academic Institutes should go Solar way

The time is ripe for Academic Institutes to go the Solar way owing to below features

  1. Academic Institutes have constant power consumption during day time
  2. Academic Institute Buildings have ample Roof space to install Solar panels
  3. Academic Institutes have higher EB tariff rate than domestic connections
  4. Long term prospect of Academic Institutes
  5. Academic Institutes will be a target for installing Electric vehicle chargers

Power Consumption Pattern of Academic Institutes

Unlike domestic connection the power consumption in Academic Institutes is constant and more during the daytime. Daytime is when the sunshines and the Solar system is generating power. If the Academic Institutes have Airconditioned labs and classrooms it makes more economical sense to go the solar way.

Academic Institutes have ample Roof space

Academic Institutes, typically have many buildings spread apart which provides ample shadow free roof space for the Solar system installation. Also facilities like Toilet blocks and parking sheds offer the same. Why not put the unutilised Roofspace to the best of its use.

Academic Institutes have higher EB tariff rate than domestic connections

The EB tariff rate is at par with the commercial rate where as the domestic connections have slab rate and provided power at subsidised rate. Academic Institutes are constantly looking to reduce the runing cost and EB bill is definitely the one to look at.

Long term prospect of Academic Institutes

Academic Institutes as an establishment are run for generations. There are many Academic Institutes which are running for than 20 years. This allows the Academic Institutes to think long term benefits rather than short term. Looking at a period of 25 years the EB tariff may triple. Solar panels comes with a performance warranty of 25 years. The projected degradation of a solar pael is 15% over the period of 25 years. This indicates the Solar panels lasts long and will produce energy for decades to come. This will ensure that the Academic Institutes is protected against the EB tariff rise
