City-based Sardar Patel Institute of Public Administration (SPIPA) has set up a 65 kilowatt solar power generation unit on the roof-top of its premises in the city.

 The project, set up by Gujarat Energy Development Authority (GEDA) will generate about 78,000 units of electricity per year worth Rs. 3,90,000.

 Vipul Mitra, Director General of SPIPA, said, “Green energy holds utmost significance for the next generation. As the same time it has unlimited potential and small installations like the one at SPIPA can be of great help to unlock this potential.” The project is estimated to reduce carbon emission to the tune of 78 tonnes, while saving 54 tonnes of coal annually.
