A 200 kWP rooftop solar photovoltaic plant became operational on the campus of Sri Vishnu group of educational institutes here on Saturday. M. Kamalakar Babu, Managing Director of the Non-Conventional Energy Development Corporation of Andhra Pradesh formally launched the plant. According to K.V. Vishnu Raju, Chairman of Sri Vishnu Educational Society, the plant consists of 800 photovoltaic modules, each designed with a generation capacity of 250Wp. The project, costing Rs. 2.07 crore, received Rs. 70 lakh subsidy from the Jawaharlal Nehru National Solar Mission from the Ministry of New and Renewable Energies . The students from Sri Vishnu Engineering College were actively involved in the installation process.

Green tech

Mr. Vishnu Raju said at the launching function that the plant would generate 3 lakh units every year while the average monthly power consumption by the group of five colleges and a high school stood at 24,000kWh. He stated that it was decided to increase the generation further with the spread-over of photovoltaic panels on all the four water bodies located on the campus and the parking spaces as part of the endeavour to introduce green technologies into the group of colleges. The installation of panels on the fringes of the water bodies also helps arrest evaporation of water, he added.

Bio-manure

He further said that the educational society was also contemplating installation of a biogas plant and sewage treatment plant on the campus shortly. The group of colleges, with over 13,000 students, produces 2 lakh litres of sludge and huge quantities of bio-waste. The STP, proposed to be installed with Rs. 30 lakh, is expected to recycle the sludge and the sludge cakes produced in the process could be supplied to farmers for use as manures in the fields, he added.

Objective

He said the solar plant was intended to reduce the dependence by the group of colleges on conventional energy and sensitise the students on the need to harness non-renewable energies.

It may be recalled that the Sri Vishnu Group of Educational Society has launched a community radio named ‘Sri Vishnu FM radio’ sometime back, first of its kind in the educational institutes in the State. It transmits programmes with the content relevant to the students of Sri Vishnu Educational Society and the native people around in the local dialect and diction within the radius of 12 km for 12 hours every day.
