NEW DELHI: Nihal, owner of Royal Enfield showroom in Hardoi, Uttar Pradesh was aware of the benefits of the solar energy. However, little did he know that it would change his life.
Introduction to Su-Kam’s youtube channel was a turning point for him. It was at that point of time that he decided to solarize his showroom in Hardoi.
Today the solar plant generates approximately 5 units of electricity every day depending on the weather conditions and powers 15 lights and 7 fans in the showroom.
This was made possible due to the initiative of Su-Kam under which a solar inverter called Brainy Eco was installed in the showroom. Brainy Eco consists of an intelligent off-grid solar system that runs both on solar and mains. In this office, for example, if they want to use mains power whenever it is available they can select grid priority so that whenever mains is available, the load will run on mains and battery will charge by mains. On all other times, it will give priority to solar. The same way one can select solar priority to maximum use solar power at all times.
“Utilizing solar power was an ideal solution for this showroom since Uttar Pradesh receives ample amount of sunlight amounting to approximately 13 hours. We tapped the city’s immense solar potential and installed a solar inverter. The solution is not only eco-friendly but also a cost –effective measure to tackle power crisis,” says Kunwer Sachdev, Managing Director, Su-Kam.
For Nihal, the solar energy has solved his power woes. “Installing solar plant has indeed made life comfortable for me and my customers. For a small town like Hardoi, where load shedding is the order of the day, solar energy comes to our rescue. The switch-over time of the inverter is minimal thus enabling my operations to run smoothly. It has also substantially reduced our electricity bills,” he says.
Impressed by successful operations, Nihal has decided to solarize all his upcoming ventures.
