Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee (DSGMC) has decided to set up solar panels on the roof-tops of four Gurudwaras in the city to generate cost-effective green-power electricity.
Solar Energy Corporation of India (SECI) has been selected to execute the project at Bangla Sahib, Rakab Ganj, Nanak Piao and Majnu Ka Tila Gurudwaras in New Delhi, which is expected to generate around 4,000 units power per day. The project was awarded to SECI after a competitive bidding leading to the signing of an agreement DSGMC recently.
“DGMC is likely to save around Rs 60 lakh per year as power bill and responsible for fixing solar panels which will generate around 4,000 units power per day,” DSGMC President Manjit Singh GK said.
According to DSGMC Renewable Energy Wing Head Harjit Singh, the project will increase to 2 MW from 1 MW to meet growing future demands of these shrines, reducing around 30,000 metric tons of carbon emission.
“Biogas project, langar waste and water management, heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) energy saving projects are also being implemented by the renewable energy wing,” he added.
