The total cost of the 360 kW PV Solar system was around Rs 37 Millions at the time of installation that includes the purchase cost of the solar panels and installation cost of the overall system. This 360 kW PV Solar (Net Metered On-Grid) system fulfills the total Electricity load demand of UW and excessive electricity is dispatched to the main grid free of cost for community support purposes.
Rainwater harvesting (RWH) System is the collection and storage of rain, rather than allowing it to run off. Rooftop rainwater harvesting is used to provide drinking water, domestic water, water for livestock, water for small irrigation, and a way to replenish groundwater levels. RWH system is installed at UW Library Complex, and the collected water is redirected to the underground tank at the sports field. This water is used for irrigation purposes. The total cost of the RWH system was around Rs 1.55 Millions, which includes the overall cost of the system.
