How to raise concern with the right govt authority
1. Plantation of trees around our group housing society - hence land allocation/ demarcation
2. Installation of Solar energy at large scale for the RWAs to meet the needs to common area electrification
3. Creating awareness around building water harvesting plants for the RWAs and having a audit done for each and every group housing societies in NCR more
Regarding water harvesting, you are right that the builders are not doing it rightly and just make some pits to get completion certificates. In fact, this needs to be planned from very beginning when the flats are under construction so that the rain water can be effectively utilized for toilets and irrigation within the society or making deep wells for replenishing the ground water. In already existing societies, it is rather difficult and expensive to plan these facilities. I already had conducted a survey in our condominium and to provide a proper rain water harvesting in such societies and condominium requires cooperation from all residents and huge investments. Each specific case needs to be studied separately and feasibility report prepared. If you also have some experience in this field, we can jointly discuss and see how best it can be implemented in your area.
Regarding solar energy, I was also reading in News papers that you can sell power generated through solar panels to the grid after meeting your internal requirements. How far it is correct, is not really known to me. more
On the solar power generation - given it's expensive - having government support would be necessary and government intervention to spare the roof space to facilitate installation and permission around feed to grid to avail concession on the electricity generated would be required. I believe that each and every society having at least 200 residential units can generate 1 MW electricity though solar and in Gurgaon we can generate 200 MW solar energy with this initiative.
On water harvesting, I'm aware that it's a norm to have them but I also have evidences that they are just the pits to get approval which is no where actually linked with roof top water collection or even in-premise water collection into those pits.
I want to harvest the most from the nature without harming anything to reduce the diesel generator usage and purify the air... and your active guidance would be helpful to take it forward. more
Regarding rain water harvesting in any housing society, again you need to contact some experts in this field and seek their quotation for building rain water harvesting pits etc. As well as, STP ( Sewage treatment plants) has been made mandatory for any Group housing in Delhi/NCR and to my knowledge, completion certificate is being given only after establishing that proper STP with reuse of treated water has been done in the society. more
