Global level holistic approach has been made continuously towards developing alternative source that are reliable, efficient and flexible, wherein to compete with other options for managing a power supply. The call of the hour is to realize an energy system that still lifts people out of poverty and enables economic prosperity. What we need is the right amount of push to increase the ability of our present devices to produce on a larger scale and in a more efficient way and striving towards better and more advanced energy production to satisfy the human needs. With the advancement of technology in the solar and wind energy sector as they are intermittent sources, a lot many innovations have been made towards the need of a deeper and strong energy system for providing a constructive basis for engagement such as interconnected and intelligent multiple Solar Road Panels, making solar and wind power affordable. This will result not only in the economic development of the area but also will improve the lifestyle of the people living there. Thereby, making a quantum leap in energy production and connectivity. The paper aims at presenting one such solution to meet the electrical energy requirements at the campus of University of Petroleum and Energy Studies. Commencing by taking a satellite imagery and then incorporating sketchup 3D for making 3D models of the blocks inside the campus followed by locating solar panels on the roofs at appropriate positions considering all the measures (shadow, tanks, et al.) so as to get solar energy in an efficient amount.
