Overview of the project:
To have sustainable and reliable power, Punjab Police decided to opt for solar with energy storage. Solarization eliminated the negative impact of 3-4 hours of power outage experienced by these police stations, especially in rural Punjab. Spread across rural Punjab, the 69 police stations now have uninterrupted access to CCTNs (a centrally operated server system). This helps with seamless sharing of data across police stations and in turn, serve and protect their citizens around the clock.
System size and capacity:
All critical loads at each police station are connected to a 2.5 kW hybrid solar system. A hybrid solar system generates power in the same way as a common grid-tie solar system but uses special hybrid inverters and batteries to store energy for later use.
Apart from providing un-interrupted electricity 24x7 to the police stations, solarisation of these 69 sites will eliminate about 276 tons of Greenhouse emissions annually which is equivalent to planting about 3,000 trees every year.
