FARIDABAD, India - Dec. 22, 2017 - PRLog -- In January 2016, BBC named Chandigarh the perfect city in the world. To make Chandigarh more perfect and beautiful, the Government of India devised a plan in 2016 to make it the first model solar city of the country.

To implement the plan, Union Territory (UT) administration issued a notification and made it mandatory for every household in the city to install rooftop solar system. But so far the response has been very slow.  The period of the notification has almost expired, just hundred households in the city of 10,000s have so far installed a rooftop solar system.

Irked by the slow response, Chandigarh Renewal Energy, Science and Technology Promotion Society (CREST) have made a complaint to the Estates office.  CREST has demanded a strict action against the defaulters.

As the deadline for installing rooftop solar system comes too close, UT Administration has already started the process of issuing fresh notices to those independent households and group housing societies who have failed to abide by the notification.

Gauging the poor response of people, CREST has announced a subsidy lead program and a cash reward for the rural welfare associations (RWA) who will take a lead in making this plan of the Government successful.

Buy subsidized High-Power rooftop solar system for Homes in Chandigarh

If you are planning to buy a house in Chandigarh, according to a new Government order, you won't be issued documents till you will not install a rooftop solar plant. And for the existing households, a strict action will be taken if they will not abide by the notification within the stipulated time.

According to this Government order, a house occupying an area of about 100-150 square yards has the option to install either 100-litre solar heating system or a 1 kW solar plant.  This option is just available for small households while as for houses occupying area above 150 sq. yards, there is no such choice available.

For houses on plots of 500-1,000 square yards, it is must to install solar rooftops of 1 kW; 1,000-3,000 square yards - 2 kW solar plant and those above 3,000- 3 kW solar plant.  Remember 1 kW solar plant is capable of generating 4-4.5 units of power a day.

Since it is now compulsory for every household in Chandigarh to install solar rooftop for power generation, it is the high time for you to start a hunt for energy efficient and cost effective solar power plant.

This time Union Government is providing you with a subsidy of around 30% for rooftop solar panels. Who knows after some time the subsidy may end and you may have to pay the actual cost of the product. These days, a 1 kW solar plant costs around Rs 85,000 and 30 percent subsidy will mean a saving of around 28000.  A 28,000 Rs saving on a product is certainly a huge benefit for the customer.

The installation of the solar power plant will cut down the size of your electric bill and the subsequent reduction in the power bill will cover the entire cost within a few years. In a way, we can say that the solar rooftop is absolutely free for the households in Chandigarh. It is a onetime investment and life-saving.
