Source:The Times of India
Date:3 November 2020

To boost rooftop solar installations in the city, BSES discoms are launching “Solarise Safdarjung” and “Solarise Karkardooma” community-based demand aggregation programmes, which will be expanded if the pilot projects are successful. The programme is an extension of BSES Solar City Initiative and brings residents welfare associations (RWAs) and solar vendors on a common platform, a BSES spokesman said. Adapting to the new Covid normal, a 100% virtual campaign will be carried out. The areas under BSES Rajdhani and BSES Yamuna already have over 2,800 such installations with an installed load of above 90 Megawatts-peak. The initiative aims to maximise the utilisation of solar rooftop potential in a targeted area. It seeks to create a market-based approach for scaling up rooftop solar utilities.
