Press Trust of India  |  New Delhi 

The Delhi government is in the process of chalking out a comprehensive roadmap to encourage adoption of rooftop solar projects, which is a part of its vision to generate more than 2,000 MW of solar energy in the national capital by 2025.

A key component in this vision is the adoption of rooftop solar by the residential or domestic sector.

The Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy Management Centre (EE&REM), the Department of Power and the Delhi government organised a consultation workshop with various stakeholders today.

Addressing the workshop, Power Minister Satyender Jain said, It is the endeavour of the Delhi government to promote the use of renewable energy by all sectors. The residential sector is a key component in an urban setup like Delhi, and we are exploring ways and means to make it easy for this sector to adopt rooftop solar.

"The government's aim is to generate 1,000 MW by 2020 and 2,000 MW by 2025 through rooftop solar installations," he said.
