Tata Power Solar, integrated solar company, has successfully commissioned a 120 kWp solar plant at the famous Bahaí House of Worship, popularly known as Lotus Temple, located in New Delhi.
Tata Power Solar collaborated with the Lotus Temple enabling them to take their first step towards going green and manage a quarter of their annual power requirement (i.e. 45600 units) through solar energy. This project will also help the temple displace nearly 120 tonnes of carbon dioxide (Co2) per annum.
Ashish Khanna, ED & CEO, Tata Power Solar, said, “We are proud to partner with the Lotus Temple for a project of this nature, where a spiritual enterprise has taken the lead in using clean energy for their daily power needs. There is a strong need for collective effort in solarising our country and initiatives such as this will help spread awareness on a larger scale while increasing access to clean energy.”
“By employing the solar energy route, we want to set an example and encourage our followers as well as visitors to the Lotus Temple to take on a sustainable way of living. We have had a good experience working with Tata Power Solar and would like to thank them in enabling us to realise our green energy goals. The Bahá’í House of Worship is frequented by a number of foreign diplomats and the project has been highly applauded by them. This initiative is in line with our philosophy of being in harmony with nature and will go a long way in creating a sustainable solution,” commented Shaheen Javid, General Manager, Bahá’í House of Worship.
