It is reported that the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology will build a renewable energy project containing 8,000 photovoltaic modules on the campus.
The first phase of the power generation system will start in July 2020. Solar panels are installed in more than 50 buildings on the campus. It is estimated that the annual electricity consumption of 900 households in Hong Kong will be reduced, and carbon emissions will also be reduced by about 1.5 million kilograms.
The University of Science and Technology will also set aside some solar panels for experiments, allowing faculty and staff to conduct experiments on research projects related to renewable energy.
At the same time, the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology through participating in the "Renewable Energy Feed-in Tariff Scheme" of the Hong Kong China Light and Power Co., Ltd., sold the electricity generated by the above system to CLP Power, which is expected to bring HK$160 million to the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology in the next 13 years. income.
The campus photovoltaic power generation project is put into use, which not only ensures the campus power supply, but also reduces the electricity cost for the school and realizes the sustainable economic development.
