Solar Rooftop on Government Buildings

Solar Rooftop on Government Building

Smart City Patna would be a solar city, an eco-friendly tourist destination and a hub for health, education and IT industry. The proposal for Rooftop buildings at Patna is based on the feasibility survey carried out at Government buildings and residential complexes.

Solar Power Generation Opportunity in Patna

a)    Patna’s residential buildings make up 86% of the solar potential. This is followed by public and semipublic facilities with 6% of the potential.

b)    Government buildings, industrial buildings and commercial buildings have 3%, 3% and 2% of the total potential, respectively.

c)    Transport sector, which comprises of areas under airports, railway stations, bus depots and bridges, accounts for 1% of the potential.


The Project

Patna Smart City Limited aims to exploit the solar energy sources to improve the power availability in the city. Under the Solar Roof Top project it will cover approximately 60 per cent of 21 locations with solar panels. This would produce 789 KW energy.

Implementing Agency

PSCL has nominated Bihar Renewable Energy Development Agency (BREDA) for the execution of the work.
