Solar energy gift for civic main building
Relief is on the cards for the cash-strapped civic body as the authorities have decided to make use of solar energy in place of conventional sources.
The Aurangabad Municipal Corporation (AMC) plans to install rooftop solar panels at its main administrative buildings. An investment of Rs 53.32 lakh will be allotted for the work, to save on electricity charges which are around Rs 1.5 lakh a month for the main administrative buildings.
Mayor Bapu Ghadamode approved the municipal administration’s proposal to spend Rs 53.32 lakh for the ambitious project. In the proposal, the municipal officials have said that the civic body would recover the investment in three years.
