Shree Swaminarayan Mandir Hindu Religious and Cultural Center (in Chino Hills, CA) is currently under construction and being built by BAPS Swaminarayan Sanstha.
The BAPS Sanstha is installing a a 60kW grid-tied solar power system manufactured by GoGreenSolar. The Sanstha is estimating that the 60KW system will fulfill the new cultural center’s energy needs and have extra power that will be sent to the local grid to bring in revenue for the Sanstha. This is a very good step in the right direction in embracing clean and environment friendly energy. Hindu Temples are installing eco friendly solar energy systems to meet their power consumption needs and could be a vital medium to educate the masses about global warming and its dangers. In a previous post, i had talked about the Tirumala Tirupathi Temple having the world’s largest solar cooking system.
Shree Swaminarayan Mandir Hindu Religious and Cultural Center is also accpeting donations for the installation of the solar power system here. Donations can be made with paypal.
