In a significant push towards reducing its carbon footprint, Karimnagar, Telangana’s fastest growing town, is going to make it mandatory for commercial establishments, houses, apartment complexes and community halls to install solar panels on rooftops, if their built-up area is more than 2700 square feet (300 square yards).
The requisite construction permits will not be granted if there are no provisions to construct these solar panels. This rule came into effect on March 1 and applies to older structures as well, according to a resolution passed by the town’s municipal body.
In a bid to encourage users, the civic body will offer a 30% subsidy on the installation process, which will be done by State power discom Telangana State Renewable Energy Development Corporation (TSREDCO). Read More
