According to the board of trustees, the installation of a solar system costs over K200 million to provide 24-hour electricity at Kaunghmudaw Pagoda in Sagaing Township.
The installation began on 6 April, completed on 12 April, and has been operational since 13 April 2024. Ninety-six solar panels capable of producing 56,160 watts have been installed in the southeast corner of the pagoda. Additionally, there are 32 sets of 450-watt searchlights, eight sets of 240-watt searchlights, electric lights on the pagoda slopes, lighting for the pagoda square, purified water for pilgrims, water coolers, and three water dispensers for drinking water in the pagoda’s buildings and shops, all available for 24-hour use.
The project received K100 million from the Sagaing Region government and K107 million from donors to ensure continuous power supply and energy conservation. Any surplus solar power will be utilized to operate two water fountains in the pagoda round the clock. — TWA/TKO
