Minister of Power and Renewable Energy Ranjith Siyambalapitiya said that the Government has obtained approval from Cabinet and the budget to establish solar panels on the roofs of all public institutions and thereby generate solar power.

The Minister said the ongoing ‘Surya Bala Sangramaya’ project seeks to establish solar panels on the roofs of one million households and generate power. He also said that they were encouraging the people towards this target.

The Minister made these remarks while attending a ceremony to lay the foundation stone for the technology laboratory of St. Joseph’s Balika Vidyalaya, Kegalle.
