THEY CALL THEMSELVES ‘THE SOLARED ENGINEERING SCHOOL’

A college that decided to lend a hand towards making this planet green again by going full solar- that is truly inspiring. Established in 1939, College of engineering Trivandrum commonly called CET is located in Thiruvananthapuram and is headed by Vrinda Nair, Principal CET.

It was a joint management decision where in it was decided that the massive amount of load that runs in the college should be run through solar power. Previously the college utilized grid supply to run their load that incurred heavy monthly charges.

The only way to reduce the unnecessary expenditure was to ‘solarize’ the entire college. Su-Kam power systems limited feels proud to receive the order for this massive installation. The installation was handled by our expert team headed by Mr. Daniel (Deputy Manager Solar projects, Su-Kam).

LOAD RUNNING AND UNITS GENERATED

The system is expected to generate approximately 675 units of electricity every day according to the weather conditions and will be able to run the entire load of the college. Mr. Daniel says ‘It is a privilege to be a part of inspirational initiatives taken up by colleges. The college is spread over a massive area of 99.99 acres. The grid tie will function as per their requirement- running the load on solar at night and feeding the excess solar power generated back to the grid. The installation was a massive success’.
