Green Campuses, going green with solar 

The Higher education department has gone eco-friendly with the installation of solar panels in the college. It was decided to install solar power systems on the campuses of 48 government degree colleges and 16 teacher education institutes under its jurisdiction.

This step of the institution will reduce its electricity bills and help students in studies.

Moreover there is a huge need for the development of rooftop or ground-mounted solar plants in their buildings for making the institutions self-sufficient for power generation, decreasing the cost of energy consumption and creating green campuses, said officials.

The department has roped in the Green Energy Development Corporation of Odisha Ltd (GEDCOL) for the work.
