The solar plant at Sree Sankaracharya University of Sanskrit, Kalady, will be inaugurated on January 21.
With the new solar plant, installed at a cost of Rs 83.85 lakh, almost 50 % of the university’s power requirement would be taken care of and the university is expected to save Rs 1.5 lakh to Rs 2 lakh per month on electricity bill.
The solar plant has 100 kilo watt capacity. There are 400 panels with each having capacity of 250 watts to generate 12,000 to 15,000 units of electricity per month.
“We have obtained all the approvals from KSEB and got Rs 12 lakh subsidy. We expect another subsidy of Rs 12 lakh. While the warranty for the plant is 5 years, for the solar panels it is 25 years,” said university vice-chancellor MC Dileep Kumar.
Along with this, foundation stone will be laid for the language block — that will house English, Malayalam and Hindi department — as well as for the administrative staff quarters in the campus.
