The above ground level has a special dish called 'parabolic collector'. This will concentrate sunlight into a kind of beam of light and direct it directly to an underground distributor plate.

Light will be generated from the sun as well as from artificial sources. The 'sunlight' laser beam will be placed in many special locations above the ground to direct the most sunlight possible. Of course, on cloudy days and evenings, they will use artificial sunlight to keep the park alive.
#5. Underground gardens will not rely on electricity. As long as there is no sunlight electricity it will be necessary to keep the park alive.
