Even as the world debates the need for renewable energy amid concerns of climate change, a school in Puducherry has set an example for the rest of the country.
Sri Aurobindo International Centre for Education, Puducherry has become India’s first fully solar-powered educational institute.

The institute generates thrice the electricity it consumes through solar power plants installed on the roofs of the dining room, primary school, library and high school in the campus.

The institute has been self-reliant in energy since September 2014.
