The Delhi police has signed an agreement with Solar Energy Corporation of India (SECI) to set up rooftop solar energy systems in over 200 of its buildings across the city. Under the agreement, the SECI will support the implementation of grid-connected rooftop solar photovoltaic systems on the establishments of Delhi police.
The project is expected to be completed soon in a phased manner with active cooperation between the two agencies. This MOU will be optimally used in the buildings and complexes available with Delhi Police all across the city.
Rooftop solar photovoltaic Project:
It has been estimated that Rooftop Solar Systems of total capacity of about 3-4 MW will be implemented across various Delhi Police buildings.
The project will utilize vacant roofs of their buildings to harness solar energy and to cater part of their electricity demand through the generated green energy.
The project would result in significant reduction on electricity bill payments of the Delhi Police.
