An official of the state education department said the hybrid solar systems to be installed in schools would have a battery bank of 7.2 VAh/Wp so as to ensure uninterrupted power at schools after installation.
He said the central assistance of 30%, which is on reimbursement basis, would help fund the additional burden of Rs 110 crore to provide the battery bank. Moreover, any amount which is left after installation of hybrid solar systems in all the government schools and receipt of central assistance would be used for operations and maintenance, upgrading and replacement of consumer items (battery) considering the fact that the solar panel would have a warranty period of 25 years and the power conditioning unit (PCU) and batteries would have a warranty of five years after successful commissioning, he added.
