Large Housing Projects: Environmental Regulation
1. Providing Roof Top Solar Power Plant and its connection to Electricity Supplier through Net Metering should be mandatory.
2. Installation of Rain Water Harvesting system through percolating pits should be mandatory.
3. Construction of a separate Shed for treatment of wet garbage through a Automatic or Semi-automatic waste conversion machine should be compulsory.
Providing these facilities at the design stage of a housing complex will be cost effective.
This will reduce the carbon footprint of such projects and make them environmentally sustainable.
Just to give an idea 1 Kwh (One Unit) of Solar power is equivalent to 0.95 Kg of Carbon Dioxide emission from a coal burning power plant. more
