Solar energy can meet Delhi's 16% power needs: Report

NEW DELHI: The national capital has the potential to fulfil 16% of its yearly power requirement through solar energy, a report released by Greenpeace India on Tuesday said. 

The report, 'Rooftop Revolution: Unleashing Delhi's Solar Potential', said Delhi can generate 4,500 million kilowatt hours of 
solar power every year by installing photovoltaic panels on 1.6% of the city's roof space. 

"The national capital is facing serious electricity crisis and tariffs have been rising steeply. 
Solar energy provides an alternative pathway," said Anand Prabhu Pathanjali, energy campaigner for Greenpeace India. 

Releasing the report, former chief justice of Delhi high court AP Shah said the city received abundant sunlight throughout the year and the state government should mull over installing solar panels on roof tops.
