Birla Eductaion Trust
Birla Education Trust, Pilani (BET) is one of the oldest trusts of the country, active with the sole purpose of education to young minds. Established in 1929, today five schools and country’s first science and technology museum are running under their roof.
BET campus majorly consists of historic buildings with old electric system arrangements. This was a challenge for insertion of new age solar system into the existing system. Since there was one transformer present for a widespread system cable routing was another challenge. Also, Rajasthan being the area with high wind speeds, higher structural stability was needed. Non availability of proper ladder to the roof was also one of the challenges.
To ensure the safety of the long cable routing, after every inverter one breaker was installed. Stronger structure was installed to withstand heavy wind loads. Project was executed within given time frame.
