No power-cuts for Delhi

We must ask Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit to create a policy that helps implement renewable energy projects, like solar power, in Delhi.

 

Why should Delhi do this?

Delhi has a history of power shortage. The Capital does not have its have enough means to generate power on its own. It depends on other states for electricity.

With renewable energy, Delhi can become self-reliant. It will not have to depend on coal which is destroying forests and and pollution by it is responsible for killing people. Thermal power plants are using and polluting water which could have irrigated agriculture fields in those areas. It will also set an example for the rest of the country and the world to follow.

This is an election year for Delhi. The Chief Minister will be especially attentive to voters. She knows electricity is a problem and that she's expected to do something to solve this problem. If many of us tell her that we want the city to go use clean renewable energy, she will listen.
