Mired by the pandemic the situation has only worsened. Once again, it is solar power plants to the rescue & latest one to join the lists of solar powered mosque in Mumbai is Madina Masjid from Versova, Andheri West.

Standing tall since 1925 amidst the corrosive winds in the vicinity of Versova beach, the masjid has installed a 12 kWp (kilo-Watt peak) solar power plant on its roof which is set to generate roughly 15,500 kW-hrs of electricity per year which will help in reducing 7.8 tonnes of CO2 every year and also help in saving Rs.1.90 Lakhs per annum on electricity bill.
