In holidays, the tank is filled with water about two times because of 600 hosteller and above 40 residents of the college quarter.The amount of water used per month is [{(4500x3) x25} + {(4500x2) x5}] = 38, 25,000 gallons.

Create short-term and long-term plan for the use of solar energy on the campus

For the above said purpose we have sent a proposal to The Minister-In-Charge, West Bengal Renewable Energy Development Agency for installation of Solar Photo Voltaic Power Generation facilities at the roof tops of 06 college Hostel Buildings covering a total area of 30,588.7 square feet. Our Governing body has also passed a resolution to set up a solar tree within the college premises. For this purpose we have progressed through the initial phase of discussion with Dr. Anjali Chatterjee of Durgapur, CMERI.

Sveral compost pits have been set up in different parts of the college campus and regularly organic manure is being produced in them. The college has stopped buying inorganic fertilizers and is using this organic manure for its different plants in maintain various gardens. Moreover, a vermicomposting unit has also been developed in the college and is being maintained regularly.
