Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) is looking forward transform stations into green zones by tapping solar power. The initiative marks the government’s keenness to reduce dependence on non-renewable sources of power.
As part of this initiative, Delhi Metro, in consultation with Delhi government, is planning to install solar panels at the Karkardooma and Noida sector-21 metro stations, said a DMRC spokesperson.
The solar panels will also be installed at the Yamuna Bank depot. The initiative comes on the heels of a special environmental drive that is being launched by Delhi Metro chief, Mangu Singh, on the occasion of World Environment Day on June 5.
The drive will include training of Delhi Metro officials in environmental awareness and environmental protection procedures in day to day metro operations, said the Delhi Metro official.
