Lucknow Development Authority will now be responsible for ensuring Energy Conservation Building Code (ECBC) norms in commercial units as per the Energy Conservation Building Code laid by UP government in 2018.
In this regard, LDA signed an MoU with Uttar Pradesh New and Renewable Energy Development Agency (UPNEDA) on Wednesday. District magistrate and acting vice-chairman of LDA, Abhishek Prakash, and UPNEDA director Bhawani Singh Khangarot were present on the occasion.
Prakash said UPNEDA will help LDA to build commercial and housing units under the guidelines of Bureau of Energy Efficiency (BEE).
“Units constructed under the BEE guidelines will help the owners to save upto 30% electricity consumed every month. Besides, rainwater harvesting plants will be installed in all the upcoming projects of LDA,” he added.
