The plant, with 441 solar panels installed at a cost of Rs 77 lakh under RESCO model, will be able to generate 1.8 lakh units of power in a year and the society may earn generation-based incentive of over Rs 3 lakh per year.
RESCO model helps companies supply electricity generated from renewable resources.
Addressing a gathering at the venue, Kejriwal said the solar plant would save consumers a lot of money.
"First time, a solar plant has been installed under RESCO model in a residential society in Delhi. Consumers will be able to save Rs 5 per unit and annually the society will be able to save Rs 9 lakh without any investment but just by utilising resources," he said.
"If you compare power tariff with other states, 400 units of power in Delhi would cost around Rs 1,200 and in Mumbai, it would cost Rs 4,000. We are able to give uninterrupted power supply, with some exceptions, as promised in during elections," he said.
Speaking about expansion of rooftop solar plant in the city, Kejriwal said he saw "infinite possibilities" and would try to make it a movement.
"In the next two months, we will hold meetings with all Residents Welfare Associations(RWAs) who have spaces on terraces and we will make it a movement to replicate this model for clean energy," said Kejriwal.
The plant was set up jointly byGNCTD's Department of Power andIndraprastha Power Generation Co Ltd.
Unexpected weather disrupted the event and many participants were forced to leave the venue after makeshift tents were damaged in the heavy winds.The chief minister, however, left the venue only after the event ended.
