Solar power for Golden Temple complex

Solar energy is all set to be tapped for the supply of power to the Golden Temple Complex.

In a pilot project, the Punjab Energy Development Authority (PEDA) is in the process of installing a water heater of 4,000 l capacity and a 18 KV solar power station for the utilisation of hot water in Guru Ram Das langar building and for the generation of power for the Golden Temple Complex.

“The water heater and solar power generation projects are likely to get completed in the first week of October. The capacity of the projects will subsequently be increased in a phased manner as per the requirement,” said PEDA Chairman Bhai Manjit Singh and SGPC secretary Dalmegh Singh Khatra.

While the solar water heater work had been accorded to Chandigarh-based Solar Synergy, the solar power generation project would be set up by Delhi-based Punj Allied Company.
