Key success indicators : • Number of schools provided with Solar Power Plants • Reduction in expenditure on Electricity Bills of Schools • Generation of revenue transferring back excess solar energy to grid via net metering
Problem statement : Solar energy is the most abundant and suitable source of renewable energy for our country. Electrical energy produced from solar energy is also most eco-friendly and green source of energy. The Ministry of New and Renewable Resources of Energy (MNRE), Govt. of India and Govt. of Punjab are promoting solar power by offering a decent subsidy at the rate of 30 percent of the capital amount for solar projects. As most of the government schools of the Punjab State are well equipped with decent buildings and have large Rooftops, these rooftops can be used to generate large solar power.
Proposed solution : Stable and regular supply of electricity plays critical role in effective schooling as computer labs and other ICT equipments are becoming inseparable part of teaching – learning process. Further, in Punjab where summer spreads for more half of the year, hefty electricity bill of schools is also a big challenge for schools because of availability of limited funds in schools. Installation of rooftop solar panel is viable in Punjab as there is ample sunlight in its all regions throughout the year. Solar energy is stable and comparatively economical as compared to other sources of energy. Installing solar panel enables schools to run on eco-friendly energy while at the same time reduces electricity bills of schools. Further, the excess solar energy generated by the schools can be transferred back to grid via net metering, thereby enabling the school to earn revenue and plough back such revenue for effective schooling.
