Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar launched a solar power plant at the mini secretariat on Tuesday and promised that such plants will be installed in other government buildings. Officials say it's a win-win situation because the government won't have to spend any money on the project and would get electricity at a lower rate, while the corporation will have customers for a long time.

"Above all, it is environment-friendly and will help reduce the generation of carbon dioxide," said Khattar, adding that this is the first time that a government building has got a solar power plant. 

The mini secretariat at Gurugram become totally solar, with a 100kV solar power plant on the roof providing electricity to the entire building. Officials claim that the measure will save them roughly 15% on electricity and minimise carbon dioxide emissions.

The district administration and the state's new renewable energy department have inked a contract with Ultimate Sun Systems Pvt Ltd, a Gurugram-based firm that will install the solar power plant at no cost to the district and would manage and maintain it for the next 25 years. The micro secretariat will get the energy generated, with the enterprise charging the government Ps 4 per unit.

The government presently pays electricity bills worth Ps 4 lakh per month for power use at the small secretariat, according to Nishant Yadav, deputy commissioner of Gurugram.

"The solar power plant will reduce the energy bills, and the building will turn into a green building (in terms of energy consumption)," said Yadav. 

He claimed that the power plant would create roughly 1.25 lakh units of electricity or more each year, with the government paying Rs. 4 for every unit of electricity consumed.

"Every year, we will save Ps 6-6 lakh in electricity bills this way," added Yadav. 

Ultimate Sun System offers ecologically responsible, energy-efficient, and cost-effective renewable energy solutions. According to a corporate spokesperson, the solar power facility will reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 150 tonnes each year.

"The energy generated from the solar power plant will be supplied to the building for the next 25 years at a fixed cost to recover our costs," said the official.
