The historic Khalsa College inaugurated a 775 kilowatt solar energy plant on its campus in a bid to switch to green energy.
Solar panels have been installed in all the colleges, schools and other buildings on the Khalsa college campus, including hostels and canteens, to minimize their dependence on thermal and hydro-based electricity, Khalsa College Governing Council (KCGC) President Satyajit Singh Majithia said.
Majithia inaugurated the plant in the presence of Honourary Secretary R M S Chhina and Sanjeev Aggarwal, MD and CEO of Amplus, the company which has installed the project.
Apart from Khalsa College Amritsar, solar panels have been installed in the Khalsa College for Women, Khalsa College of Veterinary and Animal Sciences, Khalsa College of Nursing, Khalsa College of Engineering and Technology, Khalsa College Public School and the Khalsa College Girls Senior Secondary School, the KCGC president said.
Khalsa institutions are adopting clean energy as it is environment-friendly and the move will also help in cutting costs, he said.
