APDCL Empowers Communities with 242 Solar Street Lights in Assam, Overcoming Challenges for Efficient Illumination

Location: Assam
Department: Government Tender

Overview – Solar Street Light at Assam

Assam Power Development Corporation Limited issued a tender to install 242 Solar Street Lights. SunShell Powers won the entire tender bid for the installation of 242 solar street lights in various districts of Assam by providing the lowest quote price.
As SunShell installed the solar lights, many challenges were encountered. It was inaccessible due to rural areas, and transporting materials to the site was difficult because of dense forests and plantation fields. The project was a huge success for SunShell as it faced every challenge head-on.
SunShell also signed a contract in this project to provide comprehensive operations and maintenance services for five years after the project was completed in Assam.


Our Solution

In all, 242 solar streetlights have been installed across Assam. Each light system used 200wp solar panels and a 12V 150Ah battery. This ensured that enough solar energy was stored in the battery to illuminate the roads at night. The street lights were mounted on octagonal poles 7 meters long with 36W LED lights. SunShell Powers is extremely proud of its contribution to the entire project.
