New Delhi: The front posts of Border Security Force (BSF) in Sri Ganganagar district along the Indo-Pak border in Rajasthan have now been fitted with solar power equipment to help the jawans recharge their communication and safety gear.
Gurgaon-based power back-up solutions company Su-Kam today announced it has solarized each BSF post along the international border with a 1.5 Kilowatt solar system comprising a solar inverter along with 500 watt solar panels and batteries which provide energy to power lights and 2-3 fans in each of these locations.
The batteries store electricity to power these posts even after sunset and the jawans, who had to earlier travel 4-5 kilometer to their base camps to get their gadgets charged, can now recharge their wireless systems and mobile phones at their posts.
“The tough geographical region did not have electricity which caused a lot of inconvenience to jawans. This initiative will go a long way in fulfilling their power needs,” said Su-Kam Power System Managing Director, Kunwer Sachdev.
Su-Kam claims it is India’s largest power solutions company and has presence in 90 countries globally. The firm manufactures power solutions products including solar products, UPS, batteries and customized solar solutions.
