“We are closely associated with the Kerala Energy Management Centre to carry out various initiatives under its Urja Kiran programme since 2015. This comprises of awareness programmes for the public and students on energy conservation and efficient usage of various energy devices,” said Sajimol Augustine.

Various initiatives

The college has succeeded in reducing its power consumption considerably after setting up solar panels on the campus.

All these energy conservation initiatives such as imparting training to manufacture LED bulbs, formation of a start-up for making ornamental designs of LED bulbs etc. are spearheaded by the I-Connect (Initiative for Conservation of Nature & Energy coordinated by Teresians) under the Department of Physics, said Kala M.S., HOD.
