National Chiayi University currently utilizes two types of renewable energy: solar and wind power. For solar power generation, solar panels have been installed on the rooftops of suitable buildings across all four campuses. The area of buildings with installed solar panels accounts for 65.6% of the total area suitable for solar panel installation on campus. In addition, the rooftop of the Department of Mechanical and Energy Engineering is equipped with sun-tracking solar panels and wind power generation units. Besides being used for green energy education courses, the installations generated approximately 4,305,081 kWh of electricity in 2022, all of which is utilized in the department's practical classrooms.
