Hartek Solar said Thursday it has bagged orders for more than 100-kWp rooftop solar projects from about 25 households in the city.
“Hartek Solar has secured most of the orders from owners of kanal houses, which have started opting for rooftop solar since the UT administration made solar systems mandatory for all buildings with an area of 500 sq yd and above,” Hartek Solar Director Simarpreet Singh said in a release here.
“While owners of kanal houses are required to install only 1-kWp systems, most of the rooftop plants being installed by us in kanal houses are in the 5-kWp range, which is an encouraging sign pointing towards the greater acceptance of rooftop solar among residents in recent months,” he further said.
With the November 17 deadline set by the UT administration for installing rooftop plants in kanal houses still two months away, the company expects more orders to come, he said.
Hartek Group Chairman and Managing Director Hartek Singh said Hartek Solar would be targeting at least 100 rooftop solar installations in the city alone in the next six months, covering the residential, commercial and industrial categories.
