A solar panel technician walks past the the solar panels on the roof of the Sai Prasadalaya. The Prasadalaya at the Shirdi Sai Baba Shrine is powered by solar energy: a large array of concave mirrors transform sunlight to energy to create hot water and steam for the Prasadalaya's kitchens. Approximately 1,000 devotees are served a Prasad (holy meal) every day at this facility. The cost for a Prasad meal is around 15 Rupees but the Saibaba Sansthan Trust provides meals to all Sai devotees for only 6 Rupees.
