Waiting for School

A newly released analysis report by UNICEF shows that the first school day of approximately 140 million children worldwide has been postponed due to the COVID-19, and approximately 8 million children have entered the school for the first time in their lives to receive classroom instruction. And waited for more than a year, and will continue to wait.

Henrietta Fore, Executive Director of UNICEF, said: “As classes are resuming in many parts of the world, millions of first-year students can’t wait to enter the campus and see the classroom with their own eyes. They have been waiting for this for more than a year. At the same time, there are still millions of children who may not be able to realize this dream this semester. For the most disadvantaged children, they may not be able to enter the classroom for their entire life. The risk is soaring.”


For students, school closures will not only interrupt their studies, but will also have mental health problems, missed vaccinations, and even drop out of school. What’s more frightening is that they will increase the risk of child labor and child marriage.

Although countries are taking measures to provide children with opportunities for distance learning, at least 29% of elementary school students still do not receive relevant support. (Data source: UNICEF)

In addition to the lack of distance learning resources, insufficient technical support, poor learning environment, high housework pressure or forced work are also many reasons why children cannot participate in distance learning.

Why develop Solar Media?

The world’s 600 million people live below the poverty line with a daily income of less than US$2. Among them, 789 million people live in an environment without electricity, 800 million adults are illiterate, of which 64% are female illiterate, and there are nearly 212 million malaria cases in 2019. More than 38 million people are infected with the HIV virus, and the new crown virus is raging around the world. The poor people lack basic knowledge of epidemic prevention and because schools are closed, the information transmission chain cannot reach the last mile.

Based on the above problems, Solar Run has created a solar education media system that allows users to obtain health care information, protect their lives, reduce mortality, and provide basic school education to eliminate illiteracy.

It is better to teach people how to fish than to teach people how to fish. Send education to the last mile and contribute to improving the quality of life of the poor.

Why Solar Home System Quality Standard is Important?

In the end-selling market, people always see the same configuration products with alike appearance but have a huge price gap. Also, this situation happens when solar products distributors purchase devices from manufacturers—they don’t know why the same figure on the datasheet but the quotations are totally different until they sell the sleazy items and receive so lots of customer complaints.

The truth is that the costs of solar home systems or solar lanterns are comparatively high, and most consumers simply cannot afford to purchase something that does not meet expectations or is prone to early breakage, which was the reason that impedes households replacing kerosene with modern clean electricity.

Solar Run Apollo Solar Home System

For protecting consumers from low-quality products and for enhancing consumer confidence, Lighting Global (Now called Verasol Standard) developed a series of Quality Standards and testing methods for pico-PV lanterns and solar home systems.

In order to meet Lighting Global Standards, products are tested against a baseline level of quality, durability, and truth-in-advertising. Products must also carry a warranty. These standards have ensured the product quality from the production chain to after-sale service.

Shenzhen Solar Run Energy (Solar Run) is a company that keeps following the latest quality standard in the industry and until now it owns 13 products that meet Lighting Global Standard (Now called Verasol). As a Chinese company, Solar Run is aware of the importance of enhancing market confidence because most materials and products are shipped from China, thus Solar Run must take responsibility and work with international organizations to build the highest standard.

Lighting Global Verification for Solar Home System

The reason why Solar Run follows Lighting Global’s step is also that their test methods have been adopted by the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) as a reference point for quality assurance of off-grid lighting products (IEC Technical Specification 62257-9-5), and also the updated standard by Verasol IEC 62257-9-8.

Through the adoption of world level standards and many kinds of accompanying measures, national governments in Africa are helping to boost the availability of high-quality off-grid solar lighting and energy products – and at an affordable price for consumers.

Furthermore, although Solar Run’s products meet the highest quality standard in the industry, we never forget our main customer group is rural off-grid people who lack affordability, thus Solar Run energy is always thinking about how to make the price more competitive and cost-effective but no compromise on quality, and also Pay-As-You-Go(PAYGo) products take a great place in Solar Run product line. We hope more people could join us and change the world together.

An Overview of Solar Home System

  1. Brief introduction of solar home system

Solar home system: SHS (Solar Home System). Mainly refers to the small photovoltaic power generation system installed in office buildings and residential buildings to supply power to the residents themselves. During the day, the power generation system charges the battery; in the evening, the power generation system discharges the electric energy stored in the battery to realize power supply to household loads.

Its composition is as follows:

 

  • PV modules

Solar panels are the core part of the solar power generation system and the most valuable part of the solar power generation system. Its role is to convert solar energy into electric energy or sent it to the storage battery or drive the load. The quality and cost of solar panels will directly determine the quality and cost of the entire system.

The raw material of solar panel includes cells, glass, EVA, TPT, and aluminum alloy frame.

  • Controller

The solar controller is composed of a dedicated processor CPU, electronic components, displays, and switching power tubes.

  • Battery

Generally, lead-acid batteries, generally 12V and 24V two kinds, in small and microsystems, Lithium Iron Phosphate batteries, nickel-cadmium batteries, or lithium batteries can also be used. Its function is to store the electrical energy generated by the solar panel when there is light, and then release it when needed.

  • Inverter

In many cases, AC power is required.

There are two kinds of electricity, DC and AC. Homes that are connected to utility power use AC electricity. Flashlights, small radios, and automobiles use DC electricity. The direct output of the solar generation system is generally direct current, which needs to convert the DC (direct current) generated by the solar power system into AC (alternating current), so an inverter is required. An inverter is a device that converts direct current (DC) into alternating current (AC).

 

  1. Classification of Solar Home System

Household solar power generation is divided into off-grid power generation system and grid-connected power generation system:

  • Off-grid solar home systems.

It is mainly composed of solar cell components, controllers, and storage batteries. To supply power to AC loads, an AC inverter is also required.

 

( YelloBox—4 rooms lighting and 2 ports for phone charging )

( Mbox — Power home lighting, phone charging, fan, TV, radio, solar torch )

 

  • Grid-connected solar home system.

It means that the direct current generated by solar modules is converted into alternating current that meets the requirements of the commercial power grid by a grid-connected inverter and then directly connected to the public grid.

Grid-connected power generation systems include centralized large-scale grid-connected power stations, which are generally national-level power stations. The main feature is that the generated energy is directly transmitted to the grid, and the grid is uniformly deployed to supply power to users. However, this kind of power station has a large investment, a long construction period, and a large area, and its development is relatively difficult. The distributed small-scale grid-connected power generation system, especially the photovoltaic building integrated power generation system, is the mainstream of grid-connected power generation due to the advantages of small investment, fast construction, small footprint, and large policy support.

 

  1. Advantages of solar home system
  • Solar energy is inexhaustible.

The solar radiation energy received on the earth’s surface can meet 10,000 times the global energy demand. As long as solar PV systems are installed on 4% of the world’s deserts, the electricity generated can meet global needs. Solar power generation is safe and reliable, and will not suffer the impact of the energy crisis or unstable fuel market.

 

(2) Solar energy can be everywhere, and power can be supplied nearby without long-distance transmission, which avoids the loss of long-distance power transmission lines;

 

(3) Solar energy does not use fuel, and the operating cost is very low;

 

(4) Solar home system has no moving parts, is not easy to damage, and is simple to maintain. It is especially suitable for unattended use;

 

(5) Solar home system does not produce any waste, has no pollution, noise, and other public hazards, and has no adverse effects on the environment. It is ideal clean energy;

 

(6) The solar home system has a short construction period, is convenient and flexible, and can add or reduce the amount of solar power capacity according to the demand of the household to avoid waste.

 

  1. Application fields
  • Small power supplies ranging from 10 to 100W are used for military and civilian life in remote areas without electricity, such as plateaus, islands, pastoral areas, border posts, etc., such as lighting, TV, radio, etc.;

 

( Apollo—Room lighting, radio, phone charging, fan, TV)

 

  • 3-5KW home roof grid-connected Solar Power Generation System;
  • Solar water pump: to solve the drinking and irrigation of deepwater wells in areas without electricity;

(4) Solar water purifier: to solve the problem of drinking water and purified water quality in areas without electricity.
