Solar Power Generating Project

Introduction.

Solar Power Generating System for Schools and Government Institutions in Southern Province.
The project is aimed at popularizing the use of solar power as an alternative source of energy, as a solution to the energy crisis and educating school children on alternative energy sources.
This project will generate electricity through the Solar Power Generating Systems installed on the roof of the Institute and supply it to the main grid of the Electricity Board.
Considering the power consumption pattern, solar panels can be installed in the following ways:
1.Net Meeting Method - If the number of units of electricity generated by the Solar Power Generation is less than the number of units consumed, only the change is made. By setting the total number of units to be less than the amount of electricity produced, this will reduce the electricity bill.
2.Net Accounting System - If the amount of electricity generated by the solar panel is greater than the number of units used, the CEB will pay the customer for the excess.

Benefits:

• Using solar power as a natural resource that is not harmful to the environment.
• Expansion of solar power to the community as an alternative energy source.
• Reduce the amount of CO2 released into the environment.
• Able to reduce electricity bills.
