Brokers of the sun
government has roped in spiritual gurus to promote its target of generating 40,000 MW of rooftop solar power. The government has asked spiritual leaders to install solar power units in their ashrams, or hermitages, and promote this renewable form of energy among millions of their followers. Union Ministry of New and Renewable Energy secretary Upendra Tripathi said that the gurus are in the best position to showcase the virtues of solar energy and promote the cause of green energy. Under the project, a data bank of over 100 large ashrams is being compiled to seek cooperation for setting up solar power projects in return for government is also contemplating a global conference of interfaith leaders on this issue.
