Subhas Chandra Bose Centenary College started its solar initializing by installing 1kW off-grid solar plant. The Solar Photovoltaic (SPV) system installed at the roof-top of our college. The prime objective is minimizing the use of conventional energy by generating energy through unconventional energy source. It also saves the money spent on electricity in our college. Uses of renewable energy in the form of installation of solar panel photovoltaic system result in the reduction of carbon footprint within the college premises and simultaneously reduce grid energy conservation. This solar system generates average 120 units per month which is not sufficient to run the institution. The solar based energy is used in mainly ITC room, when the ITC classroom remains closed the energy have been used for stuff room.
Solar Power Based ICT Class Room
The college has two separate fully furnished ICT enabled classrooms suitable for meetings, seminars, lecture-demonstrations and presentations. It is more an inclusive space for interactions and demonstrations. We have regular screenings, invited lecture-demonstrations and audio-visual presentations (faculty and students) and this new intervention has enhanced the learning abilities even for slow learners. Our future plan is to form collaborations with institutions for live interactions and escalate the potentials for excellence.
Rotary drum composting is an efficient and promising technology compared to conventional outdoor technologies such as windrows and static piles, as it provides adequate agitation, aeration and proper compost mixing to produce consistent and uniform end product without any leachate-related problems.The Institution has taken up some crucial initiatives to maintain an environment friendly campus and critical thinking skills of the students in environmental education. Appropriate management of waste is crucial for the sustainable and eco-friendly college campus and environment responsible next generation.
Waste Segregation and Recycling

The National Commission for Women (NCW) has written to HRD Minister to consider the installation of sanitary napkin vending machines and incinerators within the premises of educational institutions across the country.Adhere to that guideline; our college has decided to set up the Sanitary Napkin Vending Machine at Girls Common room.
Lights and/ or fan in the classroom are not turned off in many times after using them that’s why a huge amount of electricity is consumed or getting into waste. In order to overcome this malpractice a sensor based classroom system has been mounted. Presently we installed PIR Motion sensor, Microwave sensor and Time-based switches to automatically Control them. PIR detects the human presence inside the classroom and switches ON only if there is any human inside the class.
We undertake plantations on regular basis. Our collegeorganizes world environment every year at the campus and the neighbor’s area, the faculty, the staff members andthe students participate in this „Vanamahotsav’ programme.
