Day-time use coupled with daytime production forms antique supply demand match for educational institutions. Captive power generation helps the institutes to offset their grid-electricity consumption.
Additionally, favourable net metering scheme and subsidy benefits from the government make solar more viable than costly diesel generators. Educational institutions can benefit from the feed-in- tariff scheme during holidays and during weekends when the facility is not operational. This factor alone can reduce the operational costs and safeguard them against rising electricity costs in future.
1. Captive generation
2. Faster return on investment
3. Reduced dependence on diesel generators
4. Increase awareness of green energy amongst student
5. Positive impact on future generations
