SGPC to install solar power plants in 79 Gurdwaras to bring down electricity expenses

CHANDIGARH, Punjab—To bring down the electricity expenses, the apex Sikh body Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhik Committee is going to install solar power plants in 79 historic Sikh shrines being controlled by it. Notably, donations in most of the Sikh shrines have come down due to prevailing coronavirus pandemic.

Sharing the development with media, SGPC president Gobind Singh Longowal said that these solar power plants will help in bringing down the current electricity expenses almost to half. “In the first phase, we are going to install these solar power plants in around six Sikh shrines for the experiment,” he added.
