CSE wants use of solar rooftops to be made mandatory

The Centre for Science and Environment (CSE) has called for installation of solar rooftops to be made mandatory for all upcoming residential societies and sought a ban on use of diesel generator sets in highly-polluted urban areas like the national capital.

The environmental watchdog has argued that decline in cost of solar panels means that they are now a financially viable option, and the cost of electricity generation through them, including the capital cost, is a third (Rs 10 per unit) of that generated through diesel generator (DG) sets (Rs 27- Rs 33 per unit).

The solar rooftop can also reduce monthly power bill of the consumers. The extra units generated through solar rooftops can be exported to the grid, something which cannot be done with DGs, according to CSE.
