BHEL trade unions oppose shifting of solar plant from Jambooree ground

Trade unions and employees of BHEL have decided to oppose the management’s decision to drop the plan of installing solar power plant at Jambooree ground. Incidentally, political rallies and functions at Jambooree Maidan have robbed BHEL of its ambitious 10 MW solar power plant, forcing the public sector giant to cut down on its capacity 5 MW.

Deepak Gupta, president of INTUC (Youth) trade union, said: “The solar power plant is necessary for BHEL township. It can help the company save around Rs 10 crore every year. All are surprised that the district administration has not shown any interest in the project when the entire world is talking about green energy.”

Gupta said that the plant was to come up on 50 acre land, while the Jambooree ground area is around 300 acre. “Even after installation of the solar plant, ample space will be available to organise political events.

The administration must allow BHEL to start the work,” he said. During the protest, the trade union will make people aware of the need for solar power plant for the township. Read More
