UPDATE

French consulate goes green

Chief Minister of Puducherry V. Narayanasamy on Friday inaugurated the renovated reception hall of the Consulate that can be completely lit by sunlight alone. Apart from replacing LED lights in the urbanisation, the architects have constructed surfaces on the pillars that can bounce light back to the ceiling and diffuse it lighting up the entire central hall. They have installed 144 solar panels on the rooftop of the consulate building. The 45.36 kW capacity rooftop on-grid solar system produces on an average 5700 units per month.

The consulate building fulfils the criteria for a five-star rating, the highest level of certification of energy efficiency given by Bureau of Energy Efficiency (BEE).
