In this letter, their consent has been sought to install Solar Photovoltaic (PV) panels on the roofs of office buildings under the Renewable Energy Services Company (RESCO) mode. On behalf of the Minister, the heads of the departments have been instructed to appoint a senior officer of their department as the nodal officer to coordinate with the Punjab Energy Development Agency (PEDA), so that the buildings of the concerned departments can be equipped with solar energy. To streamline the equipping process.

The cabinet minister informed that PEDA has already installed solar PV systems with a total capacity of 88 MW on the rooftops of various government buildings. This step will be helpful in providing employment to many people directly and indirectly.

It will also help in meeting the power deficit by providing relief to the over loaded power distribution network. Along with this, the burden of electricity expenditure on the government will also reduce. Thus it is a more efficient means of providing energy.

Aman Arora said that the project would help protect the environment by adopting clean and clear energy as an alternative to the traditional methods of power generation using natural energy, thereby helping in decarbonizing the state’s power sector. Due to the advantages of Solar PV, it has become the most preferred source of renewable energy.
