The Intellectual school of physics and mathematics in Uralsk launched a solar station. The solemn event was attended by the First Deputy Governor of West Kazakhstan region Mukhtar Mankeev, Board Chair of AEO Nazarbayev Intellectual Schools Kulyash Shamshidinova, representatives of the Ministry of Energy and Shell Company.
Specialized parking is equipped with solar photovoltaic panels with a capacity of 100 kW/h. The photovoltaic station generates electric power by converting solar radiation by means of photovoltaic modules. It will save up to 20% of the annual energy consumption of the school and direct surplus produced electricity to the urban network, which will significantly reduce the cost of electricity consumption.
