The cow and hay barns at the Manor’s New Gokul farm have been fitted with solar panels. It is a 50 kw system and it is expected that it will produce about 50,000 kw of electricity a year. “This is a further step towards self-sufficiency at Bhaktivedanta Manor,” explained farm manager Shyamasunder das.
“There is a government incentive to reward those who produce their own electricity. Electrical companies will be paying us for doing this.”
