Street Lighting Project for TEDA
Su-Kam has carried out street lighting project of Tamil Nadu Energy Development Agency's (TEDA). It is the first project in India for Centralized Street Lighting System. The project is spread across seven districts in western Tamil Nadu including the rural belt of the state.
Su-Kam has installed 2000 solar street
First phase - In this phase of the project a 500 Watt inverter along with battery backup is installed at the
location that provides supply to a cluster of 10 street lights. The model involves retrofitting a cluster of
existing street lights and energizing them from a central SPV Power Plant with provision for grid back
and distribution through Tamil Nadu Generation and Distribution Corporation Limited (Tangedco),
Second phase – In this phase of the project a 600 Watt inverter along with battery backup was installed
at the location that supplies power to a cluster of 15 street lights. The model involves retrofitting a
cluster of existing street lights and energizing them from a central SPV Power Plant with provision for
grid backup and distribution through Tamil Nadu Generation and Distribution Corporation Limited
First phase - The project lights up 3220 street lights through 322 numbers of 500 Wp Solar Power Plant.
This is currently being installed in the rural areas of Tamil Nadu.
Second phase – The project lights up 3495 street lights through 233 numbers of 500 Wp solar power
plant. This is currently functional in seven districts in western Tamil Nadu including Salem, Erode, Karur,
Namakkal, Coimbatore, nilgiris etc.
Solar Street Light Project – Loyola Arts College, Chennai
Su-Kam in association with its channel partner successfully implemented the 'LED Street Light' project
at Loyola Arts College, Chennai.
The entire compound is lit up by installing 67 nos. of 10.8
Watt LED DC lights with 50 AH battery and 50 Watts solar
panel. This solar installation replaced hundreds of CFLs
which were earlier installed thereby resulting into huge
savings. It is a totally stand-alone system and is independent of the Grid. With the success of this project which is a model example towards taking the
first step towards adopting new and renewable energy, a number of corporate and educational
institutions are now approaching Su-Kam for installing a greener set up for their energy usages.
