The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) in a circular has advised schools affiliated to it to set up solar panels on their premises in order to produce solar energy. The CBSE said that this is an era of non-conventional energy and children should be taught about it and examples should be set before them in the schools itself.
The Government, in order to promote the use of clean energy, has initiated National Solar Mission to control air pollution and to discourage the use of fossil fuels for energy needs. Therefore, CBSE affiliated schools consistent with the national policy initiative may also install solar panels in their premises at places like rooftop/vacant unused area of campus to meet their power needs
The use of solar energy in schools will not only contribute to environmental sustainability and promote the habit of energy conservation among school children, but the cost savings will also contribute to the financial stability of schools in the years ahead.
