Buddhism is a religion based on the core values of Ahimsa and Peace. Buddhists often try to extend these ideals to their daily lives. Recently, a caretaker at Buddhist monastery decided to go generate electricity in the most peaceful and non-violent way possible without harming the environment. Yes, he installed solar!
WHY THIS BUDDHIST NGO WENT SOLAR
‘Fo Guang Shan Monastery’ educational and cultural center is located in Chattarpur, New Delhi. Established in 2007, this center practices Buddhism through various social and cultural events in India. The center had its load running on Su-Kam’s solar system since the last 2 years but they were very impressed with its working and so they decided to run the rest of their load through solar power too.
Mr. Hui Xian the caretaker of this center wanted to install a solar powered system to not only reduce his electricity bill and get 24×7 power but also because it is Eco-friendly. The center had light loads like tube lights, fans and projectors.
Mr. Hui made up his mind finally contacted Mr. Rajinder (Su-Kam’s authorized distributor located in Delhi from ‘KS Distribution’). Rajinder has sold a number of Su-Kam’s solar products over the years and has carried out a number of installations across Delhi NCR.
Rajinder was happy to install a high capacity system in this NGO that would greatly help reduce their monthly bills. After a site inspection and understanding the center’s load running requirements Rajinder finally installed the following system:
- Su-Kam’s Solar PCU – 6.25KVA
- Su-Kam’s Tall Tubular Batteries 150AH- 8 in number
- Su-Kam’s Solar panels 6KW- (250W/12V-24 in number)
LOAD RUNNING AND UNITS GENERATED
This system is expected to generate approximately 20 to 30 units of electricity on a daily basis depending on weather conditions. The system will run the following load:
- Fans- 40 in number
- Tube lights- 20 in number
- Table Fans- 5 in number
The installation was a success. Mr. Hui is extremely happy with the installation. The system is now running on solar. Mr. Rajender says ‘We have installed the system according to their load requirements. The system will work perfectly. The previously installed Su-Kam solar system is also fully functional’.
We wish the center and MR. Hui all the best and hope that many others take inspiration from him and devote some time to understand the vast benefits and advantages of solar.
