Haryana Makes Solar Water Heating Mandatory (India)

In a move aimed at saving power, installation of solar water heating system at certain categories of buildings has been made mandatory by the Haryana government.

Deputy Chief Minister Chander Mohan said Saturday that the system will be mandatory for industries, hospital, nursing homes, hotels, banquet halls, jail barracks, canteens, group housing societies and all residential buildings with an area of more than 500 square yards that fall within the municipal sectors in urban estates.

He said that all government buildings, schools in residential areas, colleges, hostels, technical institutes, tourism complexes and universities would have to install solar water heating systems.

Mohan said the Haryana Renewable Energy Development Agency (HAREDA) was implementing the programme to meet the hot water requirement of industrial, domestic and commercial sectors through solar energy.

He said financial subsidy will be given for installing solar water heating systems under a scheme run by the central ministry of renewable energy.
