Overview- 10.56 Hybrid Solar Power Plant

In 1917, Acharya Swami Pranavanandaji Maharaj established the Bharat Sevashram Sangha for philanthropic and charitable purposes. This nonprofit organization exists to improve the lives of the underprivileged. Their lives have been dedicated to serving and uplifting the poor and disadvantaged. Acharya Swami Pranavanandaji Maharaj established his first ashram in Bangladesh, and later branched out to most of the cities in India and abroad.


Our Solution

Grid-connected hybrid solar power plant that can store energy in a battery bank and utilize it during power outages was required by the client.

A grid-connected Hybrid Solar Rooftop Power Plant now relies on the municipality’s electrical grid. A grid-tied inverter converts DC electricity generated by photovoltaic panels into AC power compatible with the grid. It provides electricity at night and during cloudy days, as well as when there is a power outage. A grid-tied solar panel would not work during an outage because it prevents electrical workers from working on live lines. This problem is known as ‘grid islanding.’ SunShell Power came up with a solution to deal with this issue. When the grid goes down, the solar battery is used as a backup. Further, since the battery is used as a backup rather than full-time, it prolongs its life and eliminates the need to buy a backup generator.
