SOLAR FOR HOSPITALS & CLINICS
Hospitals work round the clock to save lives and to bring new lives into the world. They need 24×7 uninterrupted power supply to do do. However, hospitals are forced to buy expensive and inefficient diesel gensets to combat powercuts. Even a small hospital may have to spend up to Rs. 30,000 on a 20kva diesel genset for power back-up. On the other hand, the cost can be brought down to zero by running hospitals on solar.
4 Ways Hospitals Can go Solar
Off-Grid, Solar PCU, for Hospitals and Clinics
This is the most-suited solar solution for hospitals that are situated away from the main cities and face frequent powercuts because solar energy can be stored in batteries for later use. Off-grid solar package for hospitals and clinics consists of solar panels, battery bank, and Solar PCU which functions both as an inverter and solar charge controller.
Converting Existing Inverter and Battery into Solar Power System
If hospitals already have inverter and battery bank, then they can choose to make a solar system out of it by installing solar panels and solar charge controller. While solar panels make solar energy, the charge controller ensures that solar energy is utilized efficiently to charge batteries.
DC System for Hospitals
This could be a revolutionary, energy-efficient and cost-effective solution for all hospitals. DC system consists of solar panels, batteries and lights & fans that can run on DC. If a hospital installs Solar DC System, then it doesn’t have to rely on grid for running lights and fans.
Grid-tie Solar for Hospitals
Grid-tie solar installation could be a good choice for hospitals situated in cities that do not face many powercuts. This is a battery-less system that consists of grid-tie inverter and solar panels. Surplus solar electricity generated can be fed back into grid through grid-tie solar.
