The park was launched with quite a modest amount, Rs 85 lacs, and is catching the attraction soon.

The important exhibits in the park include Solar Car, Reduce Your Electricity Bill, Global Energy Network, Model Tidal Power Plant, Solar Hut, Solar Restaurant and Glasifier Power Plant. With the introduction of visits like Landing on the Mars, there has been a great rush of the tourists. The visits provide a virtual tour to the distant places in the space.

The WBREDA charges a fee of Rs 5.00 for every visitor except for the students below 16 years of age. Students below 16 years of age has to pay Rs 3.00 and for those who are below five years the entry is free.
