20 RWA offices to go Solar as a pilot project in New Delhi

 

At least 20 resident welfare offices in the New Delhi district will soon be powered by the sun. A proposal has been approved for a pilot project under which porta cabins provided by the government to RWAs for office use will have rooftop solar panels. The initial planned solar capacity is 20 kW and is expected to be increased as more areas will be brought under the ambit of the project.

A list of 20 locations has been identified but a final list will be prepared once feasibility of each location is confirmed. “The project will be funded entirely under the ‘My Delhi, I Care’ scheme of Delhi government.

RWAs had been given porta cabins but many of them were finding it hard to function without provision for power. Some have taken up independent connections but are finding it hard to pay bills. The government then stepped in with the proposal for roof-top solar panels. This is the only district in the city with such a provision,” said Nila Mohanan, deputy commissioner, New Delhi. The project will be set up by discom Tata Power Delhi Distribution Limited (TPDDL). Its CEO and executive director Praveer Sinha said that it would be implemented within the next two to four months.

“Each porta cabin will have a 1 kW capacity system which takes the total project up to 20 kW. Each unit will be able to run at least a fan, a tube light and a television with this much supply. If the project is successful, it will be expanded to cover more areas. The power generated through the panels will be free for the users as they will be stand alone arrangements. Each system will cost roughly Rs 1.5 lakh,” said Sinha.

Sources said that a total of Rs 1 crore has been allocated for the project though the initial expenditure would be about Rs 30 lakh. “The remaining amount will be kept aside for the expansion of this project. Roughly 50-odd locations can be covered under this system eventually,” said sources.

Meanwhile, even though Delhi’s renewable power obligation has been identified, sources said that it would take another two to three years at least for it to be implemented by the discoms.
