    Title: Design development of solar tree of 2KW system.
    Cost of Project = INR 4 Lakhs.
    Description: Sunlight is often deemed as the only abundant and truly “free” energy resource. Among all the different techniques available to harness solar energy, the most popular and mature technology is the photovoltaic conversion of sunlight into electricity. Despite its merits, solar PV technology has issues with the land requirement (especially in urban areas), capture efficiency and public perception (due to the absence of pleasing aesthetics). The concept of a solar tree is capable of addressing these problems effectively with elegance. In this project an attempt is made to demonstrate the components of the solar tree and its design. Through 2KW system output is given to Fire proof and water proof USB with 5V/2.4A/8USB, Plastic body, USB output: 2.4 A, 4 three pin Input: 220-240V AC and 11 LED light in periphery of tree which makes system more ascetically compatible during night time.
    Status: Completed
