MKU bets on Solar power
In the wake of severe power crisis, Madurai Kamaraj University is all set to join the solar bandwagon soon.
Having completed a comprehensive review of power requirements in its campus, the university is betting on solar power. A proposal has been prepared under the ‘green campus’ initiative and submitted to the appropriate authorities, including Finance Committee, for fund support. “The total consumption of power in the university was studied in detail and it was found that there is misuse of power to a great extent. While drastic steps are to be taken to tackle power crisis, a major plan is to tap solar energy,” Vice-Chancellor Kalyani Mathivanan told The Hindu on Saturday.
