Facebook Provides Free Wi-Fi in Gujarat Using Solar Power. How? Read to Find Out:


What Was This Solar Project All About?

This story is about a Facebook Campaign organised by Mr. Modi, the Prime Minister of India to make sure that the citizens of India enjoy free Wi-Fi in that area. Facebook recently collaborated with PM of India to start this campaign in which they decided to provide a device just like a modem that would then supply free Wi-Fi services. This device has been installed on a tower in Kota, an Indian state of Gujarat.


This device has been designed to provide Wi-Fi in the range of approximately 100 meters of that tower. To power that device, the government of India chose to opt for solar power. Facebook then approached Su-Kam to install a solar powered plant that can power this device. Our service engineer located in Kota then went to the site and recommended Su-Kam’s Brainy Eco to be installed there.


Kota district approximately receives 12 hours of day light every day. Installing a solar system in this area would be highly beneficial and so Mr. Naveen Bansal referred this case to Su-kam’s R&D unit and we then remodeled Brainy Eco into a 300VA model suitable for this site.


Technical Specifications

  1. Su-Kam’s Brainy Eco – 300VA
  2. Solar Panels – 300W
  3. Su-Kam Battery – 150AH


Units Generated and Load Running

The solar panels generate approximately 2 to 3 units per day depending on the weather conditions. The system runs the tower all day on solar power that makes free Wi-Fi available to citizens in the range of 100 meters.


Mr. Naveen says, ‘The Modi government had announced free Wi-Fi for the citizens of India through a campaign started on Facebook. So this tower located in Kota and we were given the order to power the tower through solar power. And so we installed Brainy Eco 300VA that powers the device that provides free Wi-Fi around 100 meters for everyone to use. This Brainy Eco was specially made for this project.’


We are glad to be a part of such an important project undertaken by the government of India. Solar power is truly making its place in this world and for all the right reasons.
