To save energy, reduce electricity bills and generate revenue from its own resources, South Delhi Municipal Corporation (SDMC) plans to tie-up with National Thermal Power Corporation Limited (NTPC) for installing rooftop solar plants on over 200 buildings, including maternity centres, zonal offices, parking lots and school buildings.
The proposal was approved at a standing committee meeting on Tuesday, which included signing a memorandum of understanding with NTPC for installing rooftop solar PV and solar ground-mounted plants.
NTPC Vidyut Vyapar Nigam Limited will be responsible for the project design, supply, erection, commissioning, operation and maintenance for next 25 years.
The Centre is currently supporting installation of 5kW solar plants, but there are bigger buildings that have potential and space for 20kW plants so they have joined hands with NTPC for setting up bigger plants at Capex or Resco model.
As on date out of 177 school building 5KW sites, 38 have been completed and rest are suppose to be completed y year end.
