Loyola College, Williamnagar in Meghalaya’s East Garo hills has set a benchmark for itself by becoming the first fully solar-powered institution in the state, reported Northeasttoday.

 

A 15-MV solar power project was installed in the administrative block of the college during February this year.

 

This solar power project became a need for the college because of frequent power cuts, voltage fluctuation and lightning had damaged most of the electronics good at the college.

 

Since February, the institute is now generating twice the electricity than what it consumes, because of the solar power project installed on the roofs of the three-storied academic block and has so far produced 10 KW of power.
