The purpose of this paper is to evaluate the measure of carbon footprint transmitted from diesel generators to the extent carbon dioxide. One of the diesel generator was selected for this study that are available in the University of Agriculture Faisalabad. A reliable load demand of 180 ampere, 100 ampere, and 90 ampere with six hours of operation of a diesel generator for consistently was decided for this examination. The fuel usage rate is 550 liters per week and carbon foot prints to the extent carbon dioxide (CO2) were settled. It was found that transmission of carbon foot prints as release part was 2.7kgCO2/liters (consistent component) of diesel fuel used. It was observed that the enlargement of the kilowatts extends the fuel usage and surge of the carbon dioxide. It is revealed that the efficiency of diesel generator is inversely proportional to its rated power, fuel consumption rate and CO2 emissions. Therefore, the rated power of selected diesel generator should be close to the required load demand.
