National University of Study and Research In Law (NUSRL), Ranchi became the first Law University in the country to utilize solar energy. Chief Minister Raghubar Das inaugurated the ‘100 Kilo Watt’ solar power plant.
Two units of 100 KVA solar plants have been installed each in the girls and boys hostel within a record time of one and a half month. These solar plants are enough to illuminate more than 300 rooms in both the girls and boys hostel
This would give respite to the students from frequent power cuts. Around 1.16 crore was spent in the installation of power plant which was fully funded by the State Government
Attempts for solar panel installation within the university campus were being made since December 2017. Installed solar panel systems will be linked to a centralized electrical substation situated inside the campus for collective solar coverage.
