Japan has come up with a new regulation to install solar power panels in capital city households compulsorily after 2025.
The new regulation was endorsed by the Japanese capital Tokyo’s local assembly. As per this, all new houses in Tokyo constructed by large-scale homebuilders must install solar panels.
The regulation has been brought for the first time with an aim to cut household carbon emissions.
According to the Japanese municipality, around 50 major builders need to equip homes of up to 2,000sqm with renewable energy power sources, mainly solar panels, a report mentioned.
It has been reported that the Tokyo Metropolitan authority aims to halve greenhouse gas emissions by 2030.
It comes at a time when the Asian country has set a target to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050.
