GOVERNMENT OF ANDHRA PRADESH
G.O.Ms.No. 3 0 2 M.A., Dated the 3rd August, 2004.
O R D E R:
It is observed by the Government that demand for energy is ever increasing, despite rapid increase in the power generation capacity, power shortage in the country continues to persist. This gap can be supplemented by utilisation of new and renewable sources of energy in general and solar energy in particular as it is pollution free and available in abundance and there is immense potential for conservation of electricity and other conventional fuels by utilisation of solar power with consequent environmental benefits.
2. Government after careful examination of the matter have decided to make use of solar energy for advertisement hoardings / street lights and hot water as mandatory to conserve conventional electrical energy. Therefore, the following instructions are issued to all Commissioners of Municipal Corporations / Municipalities, Vice-Chairmans of Urban Development Authorities of the State ;
(i) All the Municipal Commissioners / Vice-Chairmans of Urban Development Authorities shall take immediate action for installation of solar system on the existing Municipal buildings / Urban Development Authority Buildings and any new building being built by the Urban Local Body concerned and shall use energy efficient lamps;
(ii) The conventional lights of advertisement hoardings shall be replaced by solar photo voltaic power at the cost of the franchisee.
(iii) Conventional lights of all street lights (upto to 20 feet height ) shall be replaced by solar photo voltaic power.
(iv) Clearance of plan for the proposed construction of hospitals, nursing homes, hotels, guest houses, lodges and Multi-storeyed buildings shall only be given (a) if they have a provision in the building design itself for an insulated pipe line from the roof top in the building to various distribution points where hot water is required and the building must have a provision for continuous water supply to the solar water heating system and should also have open space on the roof top which receives direct sunlight; and (b) if they have a provision to make use of energy efficient lamps. All new buildings of the above category must complete installation of solar water heating system and energy efficient lamps before obtaining necessary license to commence their business.
3. All Commissioners of Municipal Corporations / Municipalities / Vice-Chairmans of Urban Development Authorities are requested to follow the above instructions scrupulously and contact, Non-Conventional Energy Development Corporation of Andhra Pradesh, Hyderabad or the concerned District Manager NEDCAP Limited for necessary guidance / technical advise in this matter.
