150 housing societies in Dwarka to get rooftop solar installations
Aiming to promote clean energy, discom BSES Rajdhani Power Limited (BRPL), on January 7, 2018, launched the country’s first solar rooftop consumer aggregation programme for residential buildings, which seeks to provide installations at a single point for an entire apartment complex. The ‘Solar City Initiative – Solarise Dwarka‘ was unveiled by Delhi’s power minister Satyendar Jain.
Taking its commitment to promote renewables to the next level, BRPL, in partnership with United States Agency for International Development (USAID) – PACE-D and Indo-German Collaboration (GIZ) launched the ambitious initiative, the BSES said in a statement.
“This path breaking ‘utility-anchored rooftop programme’, aims to maximise the utilisation of solar rooftop potential in south and west Delhi. Unlike conventional methods, under this programme, rooftop solar installations will be provided at a single point for the entire apartment complex. In the first phase (Solarise Dwarka), around 150 societies will be targeted in Dwarka. Looking at the response, the program will be expanded to other residential segments across BSES,” it said.
