This will save the University more than about Rs 65 lakh annually and the University will get electricity at about Rs 3.33. After the solar power plant is set up, the University will generate 13.70 lakh units of electricity annually.

University Vice Chancellor Professor Samar Singh said that setting up a solar power plant is an important step towards environmental protection. It will be installed on the roofs of all the buildings of the University and after this the rate of electricity per unit to the University will also be reduced, because so far the cost of electricity per unit from Dakshin Haryana Bijli Vitran Nigam is about Rs 6.40. Power Purchase Agreement, was signed in the presence of University Vice-Chancellor Professor Samar Singh, Estate Officer and Chief Engineer, Mr. Bhupendra Singh, Sub Divisional Officer, Mr. Somvir Gehlavat and Sukhbir Agro Energy Limited CEO, Mr. Khalid Nadeem and Deputy Manager Mr. Anil Yadav.
