This comprises two plants of 50 kW each installed at the administration building and the School of Social Sciences III, with the help of PEC Limited. The solar power plant is expected to generate 400-450 kWh of electricity per day for about 300 days in a year, amounting to an annual generation of 120,000-150,000 kWh. Further, JNU plans to expand its solar capacity by installing 2 MW to run its research labs.
