Solar PV-Rooftop Project
In 2015, AAA Energy Management & Consult Limited, Nigeria appointed Exergy to develop, design and install a Rooftop Solar Photovoltaic system (PV) for one of the new office building complexes for Nigeria’s National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) in Kaduna, Nigeria.
The design was considered to provide power supply to the building for 24 hours of shortage from the grid.
Exergy installed the PV system on the roof of the building under construction and provide training to local engineers and installers.
The project sought to promote and made greener power supply reducing the impact of diesel generators (the alternative solution to power shortage in Nigeria). The solution provided the expected results.
The total area of the NEMA building complex is 800 square meters including the Solar PV area ( 170 square meters). The total capacity of the PV power plant is 25kW with part of the rooftop covered by PV modules, the system was designed to be hybrid Off-grid system with energy storage through battery.
The 25kWp PV system now generates electricity sufficient to power the building lighting and fire alarm loads to cover up the daily power shortage period with a significant reduction of carbon dioxide.
The proposed solution give response to the client demand by:
