Globally energy demand is increasing day by day due to increase in population, urbanization and industrialization. The solar energy among other have the abundant capacity to support the increasing energy demand without intensifying the climate change impacts to the globe and its components. The isolated solar street lights installed in the outer circle of silver jubilee campus was a part of green incentive taken by the Pondicherry University to reduce the climate change issue during the establishment of the silver jubilee campus in 2010. With the time, the solar street lights faced new challenges that have significantly reduced the efficiency due to shading effects with the growing trees and some other social and security issues. The scope of work involves the study of the installed solar street lights and exploration of the opportunity for its better utilization by conducting of technical, economical and operational feasibility of uninstalling those panels utilized for street lightings and employing to construct the 7 KWp grid tie power plant in the terrace of administration block.
