A 1,020 KWp (Kilowatt peak) rooftop solar-based power plant has been introduced at the National Institute of Technology-Rourkela (NIT-R) grounds in order to tackle the capability of sustainable power source. The rooftop solar oriented boards are spread crosswise over 13 structures of the foundation involving the scholarly square, old mechanical designing office, lecture assembly, TIIR, department of ceramics and others.
The plant was introduced by CEO of Rourkela Steel Plant Dipak Chattraj within the sight of NIT-R Director Prof Animesh Biswas. With a count of more than 200 street lights would now be set up and work through the solar oriented vitality on the foundation grounds.
The venture of the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE) was actualised under the agreement with Azure Power Rooftop Pvt Ltd (APRPL) for establishment and operation of the solar oriented photovoltaic power plant.
This solar power venture of about 1020 KWp, associated with the Power Grid will currently chop down conventional power demands and requirements by one-thirds of the system.
Furthermore, the NIT-R would buy solar-based power for Rs 3.62 per unit from Azure against Rs 6 for each unit which it pays to WESCO. Thus, in this manner sparing around Rs 62 lakh per annum for every deed, as revealed by the reporters. This would thus, certainly include measures to look after the uses of a bettered rooftop system.
- Energy is Clean.
- The rooftop solar-based boards are spread crosswise over 13 structures.
- Panels have been shaped and introduced on the complete academic buildings, old mechanical engineering office, assembly hall, TIIR, ceramic division.
- The venture was executed under a concurrence with Azure Power for establishment and activity of the sun powered photovoltaic power plant.
- The venture of about 1020 KWp associated with the Power Grid would now chop down conventional power demands by one-thirds of the system.
