Mandatory Solar power - regulation

by | 17-06-2014 19:21 recommendations 0

Many people talk about conservation of energy and protecting our environment in many forums, but when it comes down to implementation level, many initiatives are not implemented due to administrative issues and lack of regulations/laws in our society. Recently I come across one very positive news related to this issue and wish to share the same to this wonderful forum?
The Haryana government (A small state in India)  recently made it mandatory to generate solar power in some categories of buildings and areas with a suitable enforcement mechanism.

For residential buildings of 500 square yards and above, located in municipal limits and in urban sectors, it would be made mandatory to install solar power plant of minimum one KW.

All private schools, educational institutes, colleges, hostels, technical, vocational education institutes and universities having connected load of 30 KW and above will be required to have mandatory installation of solar power plant of 5 KW. This plant will cost around Rs.2.5 lakh (4200 US $).
This would not only lead to generation of 200 MW of power for the small state but also an annual saving of huge coal and 16.60 lakh kilo-litres of water.
I sincerely hope that all the Govts across the world would take up such steps and will try to do something for the mother earth?

    I agree Unmesh, many initiatives are not implemented the world over.
    This decision of Haryana Government to make solar power generation mandatory is applauding.
    All major industries must follow this practice.
    Thanks for sharing.
