    Excellent 👍 Excessive power generated throughout the day diverted to grid. But as far as i know, companies do not buy solar power for not more than 3 rupees per kWh. So may not be so profitable

    One of the finest ...deciplined ... college in town who moulded & educated maximum people & shown a good & bright future. Feel proud on Christian missionaries who offer their life to give life to others. One proverb I remember at this time... No one can satisfy few RASCALS out of millions. This is Christ way & we go forward & forward. The policy says never harm anyone....if you can't do good at least not to trouble anyone. Human is one of the best element on earth if understand. Such a renowned collage students knows....other end of tunnel there is always light. Wish you all well & prayers.

    Good decision to go with Mono PERC modules but only issue is I noticed the modules are clamped using edge clamps. Talking out of experience, Edge clamps are not a good option if you dont want your modules to flyoff during a stormy cyclone.

    This is a very good move by St.Alosius College. Although it is a bit expensive move in the initial stages, but will save a lot of money in the long run, unless power distribution companies do not change their existing rules and regulations.
