The budding engineering students must understand the nature and society and utilise their studies for the betterment of society. By selecting the good path, the students must reach greater positions in their life.
The Superintending Engineer of TSNPDCL, K Madhava Rao speaking on the occasion said that the Telangana government strived hard for giving quality and standard electricity to the people. The solar power plant that was installed in the college will minimize the use of 178 tons of coal producing 2.85 lakhs units of solar power reducing the 78 percent grid supply and is eco-friendly.
