GURUGRAM: The new and renewable energy department of Gurugram
has asked all heads of departments to send data of government buildings
under their jurisdiction for setting up solar power plants on rooftops.

but after the state finance department did not approve the installation
completely on government grants, they would now be set up under the
“Government buildings with a sanctioned load capacity of 40kW or more
should install a solar power plant under the RESCO model. The
government will also benefit from this, since there is no investment from
the state’s side and electricity produced from these plants will be cheaper than discom,” said Rameshwar Singh, project officer,
After the heads of departments owning the buildings send their data, HAREDA will prepare a site feasibility report. The heads
have also been asked to send an undertaking mentioning they are ready to install the rooftop plants.
“The new tariff for the power produced would be Rs 4.13 per unit for 101 to 500 kWp capacity and Rs 4.10 per unit for 501 to 1,000 kWp capacity. The tariff from 40 to 100 kWp capacity under the RESCO model is in process. Projects having capacity
equal to or more than 40kWp will only be installed,” a letter said.
