3E powering solar & storage solutions for Indian schools

29-03-2019

3E is connecting solar systems with battery backup, monitored by SynaptiQ, on the rooftop of Indian schools. This project enables the pupils to learn in better conditions and have reliable access to energy supply.

The primary school located in Katavaram hosts 82 children divided into three classrooms. Even though the school was initially powered by a solar park located 3 km away, the power cuts used to be so frequent that the school had basically no access to electricity. Faced with this situation, Kelly Mermuys, 3E’s country manager in India, started collecting money to install a small solar system that would ensure stable electricity output for school devices. Today, the project is pleased to announce the successful implementation of 8 PV panels on the school’s rooftop.

3E provided technical support by connecting a 2kWp solar system with lithium battery backup, monitored by, SynaptiQ, 3E’s asset management software platform.

Having stable access to electricity improves the education and the comfort of the children. Thanks to this solar system, the teachers are able to make greater use of the tv, pc and beamer for the schoolchildren, which is a valuable asset considering the size of the classes. In addition, the pupils have now an easier access to water thanks to a pumping system that is powered by the electrical output.
