Acute power crisis in Delhi is stress on the people. Delhi dwellers suffer many problems due to power crisis. Dwellers spent a dark summer in Delhi. Apart from these problem the temperature in summer steadily rising to make their life harder. Presently Delhi has multiple problems, one is already discuss (acute electricity) and second that is storm, more than 10 tower and lines in different parts of the capital got damages. According to centre for science and environment (CSE) says that the domestic sector is the biggest guzzler of electricity in Delhi. According to newly released report of the Central Electricity Authority (CEA) on load Generation Balance Report 2015-16, Delhi consumes more electricity than the states of others. The household electricity consumption per capita is about 43 units per month against a national average of 25 CEA project Delhi, speak will cross 6,300 MW this year and 12,000 MW by 2012. While the Delhi govt. plan to reduce its dependence on the NTPC by producing its own power. There are an alternative sources of power generation in short, mid and long term basis. If solar panels be the alternative short term power source, then per unit production cost is a huge barrier in making this technology popular among the mass. But when the people installs roof top, ground solar power plant the cost of installation initially is high. The installation of roof top to get a new electricity connection power utilities. In such a situation, a solar energy rate has been proposed that will cover the solar electricity production cost, alternately called the cost recovery scheme. This rate is near about the maximum per unit rate of energy the government purchases from quick rental plants. Also, different types of solar modules have been compared. This can be a technical support for the city dwellers to who wants to buy solar panels.
