001200409062090.jpgThe Delhi government decided to pass an order on the lines of the one passed by the Andhra Pradesh goverment and take a big step towards helping combat global warming and environmental degradation issues. 

As per the Andhra government order, all municipal commissioners and vice-chairmen of Urban Development Bodies shall take immediate action for installation of solar water system on existing municipal and urban development bodies’ buildings and any new building being built by them. They have also been directed to use energy efficient lamps.

The order also says that lights of advertisement hoardings shall be powered by solar photo voltaic systems at the cost of the franchisee and conventional street lights shall be replaced by solar photovoltaic powered ones.

This is a great move by the Government to combat global warming and environmental degradation issues.

A move the US government could do well to emulate, especially in capital cities.
