Mahim Jama Masjid gets solar installation

Mahim Jama Masjid has installed and inaugurated a 15 KW solar power generation system that will help save considerably on their electricity bills annually. Provisions have been made for extending the capacity to 10 kw more in the second phase. “Apart from the monetary savings, the idea is to tell devotees about the importance of reduction in carbon emissions from the environment. We hope that the efforts are replicated and moving to solar becomes a mass movement, at least for all religious, educational and social institutions in the city. The idea is to spread awareness about environment protection among devotees, so they reduce their dependency on polluting sources such as oil and electricity. Lights, fans and air conditioners at all common areas within the mosque will be powered by solar energy produced by this plant. The concept of going solar has now been accepted by the entire community,” said an official.

The solar system was inaugurated by Rahmatulla Mukri Sahab, Justice Shafi Parkar (Former High Court Judge), Habib Fakih (Former WAKF Board Member), Fahad Khalil Pathan (Managing Trustee) and Arif Pathan.
