Solar power lights up Swedish Embassy

According to reports, in an effort to reduce carbon footprint, the  Swedish Embassy has started using solar panels for power generation. The embassy will meet 10% of its total energy demand through solar power.
The embassy building has solar panels  spread over an area of 600 sqm that produce about 75 kw of power. This, say officials, will result in annual savings of Rs 7-8 lakh in power bills.
Swedish  Ambassador  Lars-Olof Lindgren and minister for new and renewable energy  Farooq Abdullah inaugurated the system on Thursday. Lindgren said that the project was part of the Swedish government’s efforts to reduce its  carbon footprint at Swedish properties all across the world by 26% till 2016. “Key measures have been taken to reduce the energy consumption during 2012 and onwards targeting a total energy consumption of approximately 35% through new and renewable sources,” said Lindgren.
