Work initiated to install solar power plant at Sri Darbar Sahib
The Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC), after ardas (prayer) initiated the work to install a solar power plant to supply electricity at Sachkhand Sri Harmandar Sahib, Sri Darbar Sahib Complex. The Sewa (service) of this solar plant is being done by the United Sikh Mission from the United States of America (USA).
At the inauguration of installation work of the solar plant, SGPC president Bibi Jagir Kaur said very soon the power generation will start with solar energy for the holy shrine.
