NEW DELHI: BSES Rajdhani Power Ltd (BRPL) on Sunday launched ‘solar city’ initiative that aims to maximise the utilisation of solar roof top potential in south and west Delhi.

Under the programme, rooftop solar installations will be provided at a single point for the entire apartment complexes. In the first phase, around 150 societies will be targeted in Dwarka. Looking at the response, the programme will be expanded to other residential areas across BSES.

The project is in partnership with United States Agency for International Development (USAID), PACE-D and Indo-German Collaboration (GIZ) initiative. It was unveiled on Sunday by Delhi power minister Satyendar Jain.

A 1kW solar PV rooftop system, which likely to to generate 4 to 5kwh per day, corresponds to an average monthly savings of Rs 750 for a period of 25 years on power bills for single point delivery consumers. 

Moreover, to set up the solar plant, a 30 per cent capital subsidy is provided by the Union new and renewable energy ministry.

BRPL chief executive officer Amal Sinha said that “The programm’s objective was to educate the consumers of the benefits of the solar energy, while ensuring quality compliance of the systems installed. It will also facilitate various finance options available to the consumers.
