Resident Associations are implementing sustainable power and water solutions to go green.

Story so far:  Over the past 30 years, the city has seen rapid urbanisation. This has positive effects in terms of economic prosperity. However, it has also had an impact on the environment.

  • Some resident associations have shifted to renewable energy and become water self-sufficient.
  • A couple of them were recognised for their efforts in rainwater harvesting, energy management, and water conservation, among others.

Contest: The Hasiru Apartment contest from the Bangalore Apartments’ Federation (BAF) recognises housing societies taking sustainable and environmentally-friendly measures. More than 200 apartments participated.

  • The winners were Sobha Palladian apartments in Marathahalli, Sobha Chrysanthemum apartments in Narayanapura and T-ZED Homes in Whitefield.

Winnersโ€™ achievements: The Sobha Palladian housing society installed a rooftop solar plant a year ago. It has 179 families, and they draw very little power from BESCOM. Sobha Chrysanthemumโ€™s rainwater harvesting system ensured that there was no need for tankers over the past 3 years for its 200 houses. And T-ZED Homes has 40 recharge pits on its property while also leading in the reuse of potable water.
