    IUB shifting to solar energy

    January 12, 2021 - Pakistan Observer


      Under the Clean and Green Pakistan program, educational institutions are being shifted to solar energy on the direction of the Punjab government. The Islamia University of Bahawalpur (IUB) is also at the forefront of this mission of national service. Installation of 5624 solar panels on an area of 11 acres in the university is in its early stages. It will also provide supply to the national grid system. The pilot project will generate electricity at a very low rate of Rs. 1.7 per unit.

      This will save the university about Rs. 70 million annually. When the energy load of the university is reduced, we will also provide electricity to the national grid through net metering, which will save the university a lot of money. The 2.5 MW power project will be completed before March 31.Engr. Prof. Dr. Athar Mahboob, Vice Chancellor, the Islamia University of Bahawalpur told that special about this project is that the talents of the university students are being utilized in its construction.
