By the end of the Feed-in Tariff in 2033, the project is projected to have gained HKD 26 million in income to the college.

The solar project will also provide educational opportunities for students in the areas of STEM (A curriculum based four specific disciplines Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematic) and sustainability. College Principal Arnett Edwards said the project will also create the awareness of students and further motivate them to promote renewable energy not only in the college but also in their respectively communities across the 80 countries where they come from.
