New Delhi: Four historical Gurudwara of the Delhi will be lightening with solar energy from April. Plants of solar energy will be mounted on their roof, which will generate about one Megawatt of power. According to the Delhi Gurudwara Management Committee, this will be an honor to the seventh Sikh Guru Har Rai. Putting solar lights in the Gurdwaras is the step taken to save the environment.
A decision has been taken to install solar power plates in Gurdwara Bangla Sahib, Gurudwara Rakab Ganj, Nanak Piao Gurudwara and Majnu Tila Gurudwara. The power of their daily usage will be made from rooftop mounted solar power panels.
DSGMC President Manjit Singh believed that this work will be finished by March end. Next week, a project in four Gurdwaras will start. By April, Gurudwaras will start getting power generated from solar energy. The company has been selected after the tender for the project.
This project will work on the technology of photovoltaic effects. In the four Gurdwaras, about 13 lakh units of power will be produced in one year. A megawatt solar power generation will reduce emissions of around 1300 tonnes of carbon dioxide every year. During the 25 years, this project will reduce the emissions of 30,000 metric tonnes of carbon dioxide.
The future will be two MW capacity Harjit Singh, President of NSGMC’s New Energy Wing has said that the capacity of the project can be increased by two megawatts of one MW. In the future, this decision will be taken according to the needs of these Gurudwaras. When applying the project, future needs are kept in mind. In the coming time, gurudwaras will be able to get the energy needed by solar energy
