Many of the residential societies in India are equipped with diesel generator (DG) sets to supply electricity during power outages. However, use of diesel based power generation in societies is not only costly but also causes damage to environment and health. Centre for Science and Environment (CSEs) conducted a study that revealed that solar rooftop, which is environmental friendly, can be a viable option to provide backups in residential societies. Not only this, solar rooftop can trim down the monthly bills of the residents, as excess power generated through solar rooftops can be consumed by the residents.
To release the findings of the study on the techno-commercial viability of solar rooftop in residential societies and to explore ways to scale up the deployment of solar rooftop, to replace DG sets, we are organizing a conference with all concerned stakeholders.
Centre for Science and Environment is organizing a conference "Solar Rooftop - Replacing Diesel Generators in Residential Societies" to shine a light on the issues and challenges in the deployment of solar rooftop in residential societies and would explore the ways to scale up this technology by getting together stakeholders from government, industry and civil societies.
