MyGate had conducted a survey recently, and it found that 96% of gated communities in Hyderabad are in the process of ramping up their green infrastructure facilities within a time span of three years. MyGate happens to be the largest community management app in India, and it conducted a survey across 800 resident welfare associations (RWAs).
The idea was to understand the communities’ preparedness with regards to electric vehicle charging infrastructure facilities, solar power, and rainwater harvesting. Solar infra followed by EV were top priority in most of the communities, while more than half had already set up rainwater harvesting facilities.
As per their survey, about 86% of gated communities in Hyderabad were planning to install solar power infrastructure within the next three years. 47% were aiming to set up the facility within the next 12 months, and 39% plan to do so in 1-3 years. About 11.5% had already equipped their communities with the facility.
Again amongst the 800 RAWs, 52% were trying to install EV infra within the next 12 months, while 2% of the communities have already installed the infrastructure. As for rainwater harvesting, 60% had already set it up, while 40% were planning to do it in the next 1-3 years, and another 15% were contemplating doing it in the next 12 months.
The survey was done in gated communities across Ahmedabad, Bengaluru, Delhi-NCR, Hyderabad, Mumbai, and Pune.
