In the presence of Power and New & Renewable Energy Minister RK Singh a 1.5 MWp rooftop solar photovoltaic (PV) plant has been commissioned at the Gurdwara Rakab Ganj Sahib in Delhi.

While speaking at the inauguration of 1500 kWP capacity solar plant, the Power Minister said, “India is making rapid strides in the field of renewable energy and we will overshoot the target of 175 GW renewable energy by 2022.”

This rooftop solar PV plant has been developed by Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee (DSGMC) at the Gurdwara Rakab Ganj Sahib.

Additionally, this PV plant is expected to generate 2 million units of clean energy annually, resulting in an annual savings of Rs 1 crore.

Lauding this noble initiative by DSGMC, the Minister said that this would inspire other institutions to go green and become environment conscious.

Singh further added that 20 cities across the country are ranked among the most polluted in the world and there is an urgent need to reduce fossil fuel use so that we leave a better world for our children.

He also reiterated his government’s commitment to bring electricity to every household by December 31, 2018.

Meanwhile, the solar power plant was inaugurated by Sant Balbir Singh Ji Seechewal and Baba Sewa Singh Ji. The Housing & Urban Affairs Minister Hardeep Puri and Dr Harsh Vardhan, Minister of Environment, Forest and Climate Change were among the dignitaries present at the occasion.
