Solar Photovoltaic (SPV) Power Plant

Being an eminent college of Science and Technology, the authorities of Dr. B. C. Roy Engineering College believes in tryst with the environment. It is undeniable that the mother Nature is being badly ravaged owing to the harnessing of the sources of energy from the core of its heart. A 30 KWp On−Grid Rooftop Solar Photovoltaic (SPV) Power Plant was installed in the college. The generation of electric power has been started from 06−01−2021. There are 80 solar panels (solar photovoltaic modules) and each panel contains 72 solar photovoltaic cells. It generates on an average 120 unit (kWh) electricity per day. Excess power is transmitted to the Grid. There is zero maintenance cost of the solar power plant. The plant was inaugurated by Dr. Binoy K. Dutta, Chairman, BCREC Society and former visiting professor of IIT, Kharagpur.
