Decision Maker Response

Arvind Kejriwal’s response

Feb 5, 2020 — Dear Citizens,

Thank you for raising your issue through this petition. This petition by Mishika Singh makes pertinent points about how Delhi can benefit from solar energy.

We would like to inform you that the Delhi government has already installed solar panels in 21 schools and the work is in progress in 100 more.

We ran a successful pilot of terrace solar panels in #DelhiGovtSchools. The electricity bill for this school was reduced from Rs.35,000 to Zero. Our plan is to install a total of 500 schools. This is an important step towards power independence for Delhi!

I want to assure you that if voted back to power, my government will certainly make it a priority to make Delhi solar friendly. The vision of my government for the next 5 years is summarized in the 10 guarantees and our manifesto for Delhi assembly elections.

Based on our success, we will now work towards installing solar panels in all Government schools and Government offices under the Delhi Government.

Thank you,
Arvind Kejriwal
Chief Minister of Delhi
