Projects Sustainable Lifeenergies and water
Aspects of the Projects Sustainability can actually be found in all KS-Plus projects. Even the children in school know nowadays that the ressources of this earth are not endless and that we have to be very careful to pass the planet to the next generations in a state which allows life furtheron. Renewable energies, protection of natural ressources like air, soil and water are included as an essential part of it.
Projects Sustainability: Renewable Energies
- Renewable energies play a central role in our Projects Sustainability. In November 2017 the installation of photovoltaics on existing roofs in Kirpal Sagar was started. The aim is to cover about 50% of the annual electricity requirement. In the course of 2018, the target is 700 kWp. Currently, we continue to collect for the installation of solar panels on the Academy and its boarding school as well as on other buildings.
Projects Sustainability: Clean Water
- Clean Water is currently a major issue in Kirpal Sagar. The common systems like 3-chamber plants have their weaknesses in the rainy season because they are difficult to protect against flooding. At the moment, alternatives and additions are being sought with high pressure. KS-plus already supports and collects for the implementation.
