Author(s): Mahima Sangwan and Mehtab Singh
For the expansion of a new technology on a massive scale like solar energy in general and solar rooftop panels in particular, satisfaction level of the current users needs to be known. So that the unsatisfactory variables can be worked upon before infusing more resources and time into it. Such timely checks ensure a fast paced and buoyant holistic development. With the satisfaction of the end users only the extraordinarily high targets set by the government can be achieved. This paper deals with the satisfaction level regarding solar rooftop panels in this regard for the city of Gurugram. The city is part of the NCR-Delhi and is hub of Multi-National Corporations in north India. With increasing employment opportunities comes the increasing demand of residence. This inevitably escalates the demand of power. This power supply can be supported by and relied upon by installing solar rooftop panels. The households where these are in place have been surveyed and the satisfaction level has been tried to found out on the basis of economic, technical and environmental factor. The performance of the solar panels have been found to be satisfactory in the concerned study area.
