University has a setup of solar devices including solar geysers installed in hostels and solar street lights. In addition, we have a solar set up of poly carbonate panels of 25Kwh that generates around 100 units/day. This saves around Rs. 24000/ month in electricity bills. University has further planned to setup solar power plant of 200Kwh in our second phase.
The eco-friendly waste management system involves a Biogas plant of 10 cubic meter that consumes the garden waste, kitchen wastes and other wet waste are collected from different areas of the campus and produce biogas that is used in boy’s hostel mess. During the destruction process there is no odor, flies or leaching of contaminants
Wheeling to the Grid
University has a setup of Solar Power Plant of 25 Kwh in its first phase which in term to contributing our daily energy demands it also helping us in reducing our electricity bills. When consumption reduces on holidays or week ends by using Net Metering service of PSPCL where produced extra energy is borrowed by PSPCL and adjusted in our electricity bills.
Sensor-based energy conservation
Sensor based energy conservation: sensor based devices are being installed at various places in university that control the lighting system. The street lights are connected to it that are controlled by the sensor that control the lighting system by switching on and off based on availability of natural light. This helps in saving energy by keeping an automatic check on usage of light and keeping it on off mode when not in use.
Use of LED bulbs/ Power Efficient Equipment
Use of LED lights: As LED s consume very low amount of power; University is actively replacing the tube lights with LED lights as average LED lasts for 50,000 to 100,000 operating hours that is 2 to 4 times long as compared to simple tubes. Depending on the existing lights and the LED installed the energy savings shall be reached to about 60% and above
