5. Efficient use of renewal energy sources like Solar Power, Green Initiative and Rain water Harvesting, & Social Responsibility
Plan of Action –
o The cost of conventional energy like electricity, fuels is rapidly increasing along with environmental pollution that is caused and institutes are finding it difficult to cope up with this situation ,the solution lies in using non-conventional renewable energy sources like Solar Power, Bio gas , Wind Power ,etc. to the maximum possible extent. The institute has installed 8 kg Watt solar power generating unit and proposes to increase its capacity in future so that maximum electricity requirement will be generated through it.
o In a situation where there is ample rain fall during monsoon and scarcity of water in summer rain water harvesting methods are being installed to recharge the ground water level. The institute has taken steps to provide better environment through reduced use of plastics, tree plantations, waste recycling, reduced carbon emission.
o The Institute is fully aware of its social responsibility and hence takes initiatives like blood donation camps, Adult computer literacy program, Shramanubhav Shibir every year for solving the problems of society.
