The multi-storey buildings in the state of West Bengal will have the obligation to install solar panels on the rooftops for power generation, according to a new policy approved by the state government on May 23, 2012, regarding power generation from renewable energy sources. The policy was cleared by the state cabinet committee on infrastructure and industry.
The new policy mandates the multi-storey buildings to have solar panels installed on the rooftops. Power generated has to be transferred to grid and residents will draw electricity from it. The additional amount will be adjusted in their monthly bills.
